Joe Scarborough: MSNBC’s Useful Idiot
Remember not long ago when Matt Lewis and Erick Erickson were praising Joe Scarborough as perhaps the most influential conservative voice in American politics?
First, listen to this short new audio of an Occidental classmate of Obama's claiming he wanted to see a genuine worker's revolution in America in his time.
Q: …John, you had told me before, and I'm reading from my book, that "Obama was already an ardent Marxist in the fall of 1980 when I met him. I know it's incendiary to say this, but although he said in Dreams From My Father that he'd 'hung out with Marxist professors', he did not explain in that book or clarify is that he was 100% in total agreement with those professors.
Then watch allegedly influential conservative Scarborough denounce McConnell for stressing the importance of limiting Obama to one term. The operative term for Scarborough is useful idiot. And those on the Right touting his influence might want to give more thought to who and what rhetoric they are propping up, whatever their reasons.
This morning, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was floored by McConnell’s open admission that his single most important goal is to defeat Obama. “Mitch McConnell said that?!? … He admitted that on the record?!? That is embarrassing,” he said. “Can I just say for the record – that is pathetic.”
