Scarborough, Dean Squabble Over Dems Moving Left: You Spout That 'Carl Bernstein Nonsense'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/09/2013 6:54:34 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Things got testy between Joe Scarborough and Howard Dean on today's Morning Joe over the issue of the Dem party moving left. In a particularly unkind cut, Scarborough accused Dean of spouting "Carl Bernstein nonsense," while Dean tried to shut Scarborough down, bleating "blah, blah, blah." Adding spice to the mix, Mika Brzezinski made clear her great regard for lefty Senator Elizabeth Warren, saying she'd make a "formidable" presidential candidate.

The fracas was detonated by a discussion of a Wall Street Journal op-ed by a centrist Dem group called "The Third Way," which argued that following proposals from Warren and far-left, newly-elected NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio, would be electorally "disastrous" for Dems. That in turn engendered a New York Times article about infighting among Dems, reporting among other things that Warren is using "hardball" tactics to intimidate banks supporting The Third Way.

A rare time that Joe actually sounds like a Republican.

And he could not have picked a more reprehensible guy to go after: Howard Dean is the lowest type of limousine liberal that ever was. A physician who grew up on Park Ave. in NYC who spouts Marxist crap.

“Please, Dems: follow Elizabeth Warren and Bill DeBasio over the cliff.”

The further left they go, the more of the electorate they may take with them.

There are increasing numbers out there who love
Che Guevarra caps & t-shirts, Fidel Castro, Cuba and the idea of re-education camps designed to change the attitudes of “greedy, mean-sprited, nasty capitalists” who won’t let President Obama “do what he has to do”.

Electoral success is what might be in the offing if the Democrat party continues the “pivot” to the left.

IMHO

“The Third Way” is Hillary’s campaign.

The Clintons started talking about “The Third Way” sometime in 1998 or 1999.

The idea is both political parties are full of extremist and both political parties economic policies have failed so we need a Third Way.

Everything the Zippo WH is doing is designed to fail, but it is designed to fail after the 2014 elections so it can be blamed on the republicans winning big in the election.

The Third Way’s “NEW” economic theory will probably be based on Robert Reich’s “NEW” economic theory he developed while in college with the Clintons.

This “NEW” economic theory is based on government and business working together.

Sound familiar?

A modern “centrist” Democrat might be someone like Paul Ryan, John McCain or Mitch McConnell.

Update for Mika: the Fake Indian officially took herself out of the running about ten days ago.

As a “journalist” you really should take a look at your AP feed once in awhile.

I was watching/listening as I was getting ready for work today... and I think they did the entire show without mentioning Obamacare or the ACA at all... I honestly think they are burying the story completely, they simply don't want to talk about it anymore???

“These stupid people know nothing other than they are on the gravy train.....”

And they absolutely love the knowledge that they can vote themselves goodies that belong to other people.

All they have to do is vote for a “brilliant,intellectual,
Progressive genius” who is going to “fight” for them.

(Scu&bags, one and all.)

IMHO
