Skip to comments.Joe Scarborough Explodes At GOP For Voting Down Gun Control: 'Party Is Moving Toward Extinction'
Posted on 04/18/2013 7:05:52 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
"Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough reamed into Senate Republicans and four Democrats who voted against the passage of a bill expanding background checks.
Particularly targeting Republicans, Scarborough said that the party was "moving toward extinction."
"You do not ignore 90 percent of the American people on an issue of public safety," Scarborough said, citing poll numbers that consistently showed nine in 10 respondents supporting the measure.
"Mark it down this is going to be a turning point in the history of the Republican Party as well," he added. "And let those out there chattering, let them chatter away all they want to and scream like hyenas. Let them do what they want to do.
"This party that killed this background check yesterday this party is moving toward extinction. A new Republican Party is going to replace it. And this is going to be a vote that people are going to look back on and say, 'That party that extremism that was unsustainable."
On Wednesday afternoon, the Senate failed to garner the 60 votes necessary to pass the measure. It drew an especially angry reaction from President Barack Obama, who made new gun legislation a key legislative goal of the start of his second term.

Either Joe exploded or someone at MSNBC passed gas on the air again.
I can’t say it here, but “N-word, please!” would be my response to him if I could tell him personally.
Nice sack dress on Bubbles!
saw that this morning, the woman next to him as well, lost it, infact they were so full of hatred that they never bothered to cover the TX explosion but then again TX and the small town is in the south, a republican voting state and area so to them it’s not elitist liberal Boston
...Said the same brilliant guy who said Kerry’s bringing John Edwards aboard the Dem ticket vs. Bush in 2004 would catapult Kerry ahead by 18%.
If it weren’t for the conservatives who tune in for comic relief and posting here on FR, Scarborough wouldn’t have an audience at all.
MSLSD passes gas every time they talk, they are so far left that they are way out of mainstream and how anyone can even call that channel a serious news networks is stunning
Joe, normally I hate the GOP with much vigor, but I’m very appreciative of whathappened yesterday...for once I have to call this a victory.
So, Joe, IN YOUR FACE!
Joe is right, the GOP is on the verge of extinction, but for altogether different reasons.
My response would be... “Go ‘F-word’ yourself”.
I guess I grow more intolerant every day. Oh, well.
DNC Party Provost Joe Scarborough?
I’d like him to prove the often bandied talking point of 90% seeing as that number keeps getting used by this administration with zero proof backing it.
“You do not ignore 90 percent of the American people on an issue of public safety,” Scarborough said, citing poll numbers that consistently showed nine in 10 respondents supporting the measure.
Uh, Joe. Please show us those numbers instead of being a lib and just repeating what you heard.
Theyr’e pissed that their constant, continuous pummelling had no influence whatsoever. It only influenced John McCain, Susan Collins and Mark Kirk, who are moderate, extra democrats anyway, and Pat Toomey, who was roped into “bipartisanship”
They’re irrelevent, and they hate that. The people and their representatives paid absolutely no attention to the political grandstanding.
Compulsive liars who believe their own lies become ever more erratic and even dangerous over time.
Have they ever gotten to the bottom of how a dead woman ended up in Scarborough’s office back when he was a Congresshole?
Joe is such a media prostitute that MSNBC ought to position him leaning on a lamp post as he belches his sulfurous screed.
They were just representing the wishes of their constituents Joe. Not the wishes of their King.
Yes, and ninety percent of the people want obama to do something to improve the jobs situation, but he and the pols never do anything about that.
I’m gobsmacked; a few more votes displaying the GOP has their balls back and I might be able to re-register as a Republican.
