On “Morning Joe” today, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough dared to suggest that Barack Obama and Leon Panetta’s new policy that women can service in frontline combat roles should be carefully implemented to make sure it does not end up putting lives at risk. The way he said it was thought-provoking: “There’s a reason why there are no women in the NFL.”
Scarborough clarified what he was getting at:
“I’m not saying I don’t want women in combat. Women can be in combat, but I’ll be damned, if we find out that the Pentagon is lowering standards for politically correct reasons.”
Here is video of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough saying he believes Republicans are playing it smart in how they are dealing with raising the debt-ceiling temporarily to force the hand of the Senate Democrats to finally pass a budget after more than 3 years of not doing so.
The way Scarborough has too often sounded like a Democrat in recent months, I’m not sure his praise of House Republicans is a good sign.
If you’ve ever been tempted to think that Barack Obama and the Democrats have any intention of dealing with the nation’s debt – driven largely by Medicare and Medicaid spending – watch this discussion between Joe Scarborough and David Axelrod / Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. It’s clear they have no intention of doing anything about the massive deficit spending that has added nearly $6 Trillion to the National Debt in just four years of Barack Obama as President.
Here is audio of conservative Mark Levin unloading on whom he calls, the “Morning Schmo,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough – host of “Morning Joe.”
Levin said flatly Scarborough is “not a conservative,” and said he is a “pathetic troll” who is “prancing around as a conservative.”

Here is video of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on “Morning Joe” today where he slammed House Republicans for going along with the “Fiscal Cliff” Deal that raised tax rates, but did not cut spending. He particularly slammed GOP Rep. Paul Ryan for voting for raising tax rates but “doesn’t cut a dime” from spending “which everyone knows is the problem.”
Here is video from yesterday of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and panel discussing President Obama’s opening “Fiscal Cliff” proposal to the Republicans. Scarborough called the offer “insulting” and “awfully reckless” for an opening proposal. Obama actually asks for tax increases, more stimulus spending and no specific spending cuts. He also wants to be given the unilateral and unfettered authority to raise the debt ceiling anytime he wants to – without interference from Congress. Even Democrat Harold Ford Jr. seemed taken aback by Obama’s proposal.
Here is what Obama proposed:
