Joe Scarborough Explodes At GOP For Voting Down Gun Control: 'Party Is Moving Toward Extinction'
Business Insider ^ | 04/18/2013 | Brett LoGiurato

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.

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.

So, Joe, IN YOUR FACE!

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.

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.

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.

Just read an article in the Marine Times that came out a couple of weeks ago. It was a pole among Marines that found traditional support for the Republican party falling while at the same time the Marine Corps was becoming overall more conservative. This is a microcosm for society at large. So yes Joe you are correct. The Republican party is becoming extinct. But for the wrong reasons you are stating. This vote yesterday will strengthen the Republican party.

This was fun to watch, I DVERed it and saw it live.

Morning Joe also previously predicted that this bill was going to pass, so when Dems lose Senate seats next year he wont be talking about this.

He also said the ‘new GOP’ will embrace gun control.

Mark Halprin said on show “Its a complex issue ‘ and so Joe jumped all over him like he was the NRA.

Joe, if you want ratings, the last guy you want to steal crazy from is Chris Matthews.

I know of at least one dead intern who might have benefited from a gun, when she "fell over and hit her head" on your desk.

The 90% support is bull.

With that support, the bill would have bipartisan support and passed overwhelmingly.

The Senators voted the the way their constituents demanded.

The way they got that 90% number is by the way they asked the questions. They may have said, "Do you support keeping guns out of the hands of the dangerously mentally ill?" and of course 90% of people would say yes.

If they had said, "Do you support creating a national gun registry and subpoena of all your most confidential medical records against your will?" they would have gotten a very different number.

Have they ever gotten to the bottom of how a dead woman ended up in Scarborough’s office back when he was a Congresshole?

Question: How many congressmen does it take to bash his mistress/intern's head against a desk until she's dead?
Answer: None. She fell.

Zero is such a true believer tht he can’t even see the fact that Americans don’t want gun increased gun registration with an eventual national databank of all gun owners. He overplayed he hand and he will get nothing now.

It’s just crazy. Most of the people posting their dislike of the failure of this bill have not even bothered to read below the fold. They hear Obama say, the NRA and Gun Rights Advocates lied. That’s why even Harry Reid, who initially said he’d vote his conscience, discovered the bill wouldn’t pass then voted against his conscience so it could be brought up again. Talk about filth bag!

Didn’t the recent Gallup poll show that only 6% of those polled cared about the gun issues? WOW it was really 90%? Riiiight. Background checks are already on the books. Order a firearm and it gets delivered to a FFL gun shop who then puts your name into the computer for a background check before you are allowed to take it. The magazine thing is also a joke, CA has it already, so if you want a large mag. you get one from out of state. I’m sure it can be arranged to get as many as you want from Tijuana too. What we have is a war against firearms like the war against drugs. Like most things in this world, money talks no one walks. Lets get our nation back to work, its more important than guns or same sex marriage.
