    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough railed against presidential candidate and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) after Scarborough's name appeared in a Rubio campaign fundraising email. Scarborough was mentioned in the email after remarks last week that were critical of the Rubio campaign's ads, which he described as "nativist." In the ad, Rubio said the election revolved around people who "feel out of touch in their own country." "Elitist members of the media, like MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, are claiming Marco's remarks are 'nativist,' saying he's trying to pander," Rubio campaign manager Terry Sullivan wrote in an email to supporters on Monday. Scarborough charged...

    Is he really the sole arbiter of what is right and just? Referencing Barack Obamas remarks at a recent forum aimed at addressing poverty, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took exception to the presidents public indictment of a rival cable news network. Obama stated that Fox News Channel offers a constant menu of programming demonizing the poor as lazy sponges and leeches. Scarborough eviscerated Obama not only for his comments, but for the forum in which he decided to make them. At a bipartisan summit, you decide to attack a cable news channel as the problem, he said, saying that [FNC...

Instead, Limbaugh told his audience the message was clear, which was the American people wanted Congress to stop President Barack Obama. On MSNBCs Morning Joe on Friday, host Joe Scarborough and Bloomberg Politics John Heilemann dismissed that suggestion from Limbaugh and warned Republicans not to follow that advice.

    CNN's media reporter shamed his colleagues this week for rushing to judgment before all of the facts were in about a brawl involving the Palin family. The "sketchy" details of the fight in which the Palin family reportedly came to the defense of their eldest son were first spread by an anti-Palin blogger who admitted she neither had the time nor wanted to track down the facts. No need to bother, of course, when the "story" is salacious and the anti-Palin mainstream press will more than participate in the feeding frenzy if they think it will make Palin look bad....

    Page Six reports that the newly revamped "Meet the Press," which launches this coming Sunday with Chuck Todd as moderator, has chosen Joe Scarborough to be the "right-leaning voice" in the role of a regular panelist. Other regular panelists will include anyone familiar with the hard-left MSNBC: Andrea Mitchell and Luke Russert. Assigning Scarborough the role of the "right-leaning voice" is a grave error on the part of NBC News. Forget the fact that with each passing day he becomes more of an insufferable blowhard on his own "Morning Joe," this "right-leaning voice" pushes for gun control, amnesty, boycotts of...

It’s true, Obama had little experience as a federal legislator (and zippo as an executive) before running for president, and look how little he’s accomplished. But is that a function of “inexperience” or a function of other variables, like greater partisan polarization and Obama’s disdain for doing the sort of congressional outreach needed to pass bills? Rubio and Paul will each have served a few years more than Obama did in the Senate by election day 2016. They each also have some cred in working...

If you saw the new data from Pew this morning, you know why. Ninety percent support for expanded background checks in no way means that 90 percent of the pubic is angry at the GOP over the Senate vote. Rather, the vote on Toomey/Manchin was more of a proxy vote on gun control generally: If you want more GC then you’re angry or disappointed, if you...

    Oh irony, oh hypocrisy! Joe Scarborough opened today's Morning Joe by singing the praises of NBC's Pete Williams for not jumping onto the story that other news outlets were reporting yesterday that an arrest had been made in the Boston Marathon bombing. Scarborough condemned journalists "far more interested in getting it first than getting it right." But mere minutes later, Scarborough accused former Republican congressman Chris Cox of "lying," in his role as NRA spokesman. Just one problen, as Scarborough had to admit later in the show: he had the wrong Chris Cox. Check back soon for the video.

    Via Conn Carroll, I cant tell if theyre offering this as a cautionary tale, to expose a security vulnerability identified by Al Qaeda before its exploited (AQ would never buy guns from the black market), or if its more of a shaming thing where gun-rights supporters are supposed to feel guilty because even a degenerate like Adam Gadahn thinks our laws need improving. My sense from the clip is that Scarboroughs thinking along the former lines while Mika, predictably, is thinking along the latter. I did not anticipate having to fact-check Al Qaeda as part of Americas gun debate...

    The U.S. would oust the communist regime in North Korea if it uses its nuclear weapons or launches an all-out invasion on South Korea and the 28,500 American troops stationed there, national security sources say. The Obama administration has not articulated such a far-reaching retaliation, even as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un threatens to attack both the South Korean and the U.S. mainland. But national security sources say it is a common assumption within the Pentagon and U.S. Pacific Command that a full-force attack by Pyongyang would put in place a contingency plan of massive retaliation against the North aimed...

    What would the conservative movement do without MSNBC's Joe Scarborough to set us straight? I just wish he would let us know which side of his mouth we're supposed to listen to. This morning, out of one side of his unnaturally small mouth, Scarborough and his "Morning Joe" crew were all hand-wringy over vitriol in politics, vitriol that sometimes includes -- bum bum bummmm! -- "racial undertones!" But also, this morning, out the other side of that unnaturally small mouth, Scarborough summoned up some phony outrage to accuse TX Senator Ted Cruz of "ignorance," -- and did so four times...
  • Joe Scarborough to Wash Post: 'I dont Expect to Be Cheering House Republicans Anytime Soon'

    The Washington Post's Greg Sargent on Tuesday seemed shocked that Joe Scarborough, who he paints as the voice of moderation, agrees more with Democrats on deficit issues than Republicans. On the subject of fiscal problems and the debt, the MSNBC host told Sargent, "I dont expect to be cheering House Republicans anytime soon." The left-leaning Post writer asked if, on deficit issues, Scarborough's "views are indeed more in line with Dems than with Republicans." The cable host replied, "yes." He then went on to attack Barack Obama from the left: "I dont see the Democrats focusing seriously on Entitlements or...

    Conservative talk radio host and scholar Mark Levin assailed MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Monday for slamming Sarah Palin and implying that Palin--and the Tea Party--was fading away and losing influence. On Monday morning, Scarborough joyously claimed on MSNBC's Morning Joe that Palin and the Tea Party did not represent the future of the conservative movement and implied those like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did. On his talk radio show, Levin said Scarborough "can't hold a candle to Sarah Palin." Levin said Scarborough's attack on Palin represented "cowardice," was "cheap," and symbolized a co-host playing to his liberal "media...

    Former Republican star and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and FOX news ended their partnership on Friday after three years, a source close to Palin told the Real Clear Politics Web site, the Morning Joe panel discussed Palins exit on Monday morning. Sarah Palin represented a time and place in American politics and not 2008 so much as 2010. And that time is passing us very quickly. Party leaders are finally understanding that, Joe Scarborough told the panel. Palin last appeared on Fox on December 19, 2012 when she spoke with the channels Greta Van Susteren about Benghazi and the two...
  • Scarborough Warns: GOP Better Tread Lightly, Obama Gun Proposals Enjoy Overwhelming Support

    After reviewing President Obamas 23 executive actions signed into law yesterday, Joe Scarborough said Thursday morning that his Republican Party had better proceed with caution, seeing as how he believes the policy proposals have the overwhelming support of the American people. The presidents plan included universal background checks on gun purchases, which Scarborough said has the support of at least 85% of Americans. The presidents call for a
