On the day the GOP releases another blatantly false web ad about the lack of leadership in the Democratic Party, Joe Scarborough utters the words on the lips of Republicans throughout the nation: "I'm embarrassed to be a Republican." From the transcript:
HANRETTY: There's no voice for the Republican Party. It's not George Bush. It's not the leadership in Washington, D.C. There's no one out there talking in support of Republican principles. The Republican principles that helped you in 1994, there's no one out there right now. If there's an absolute vacuum of Republican--strong Republican leadership.
SCARBOROUGH: There's no...
VANDEN HEUVEL... leadership.
SCARBOROUGH: There is no--hold on one second, Katrina. I'll let you talk in a second. I've just got to say this, thought, because I think you've touched on an important point, Karen.
The lack of leadership in Washington, D.C., is sickening. If you look at what Republicans did--promised to do in 1994, when they took control of Congress, and see, how they've been acting over the past three or four years, the biggest debt and deficit ever. They are irresponsible and reckless on so many levels. I'm embarrassed right now to be a Republican. It's a disgrace because of the lack of leadership.
As kos said below, for all their fancy slogans, Republicans just can't govern. They can't deliver. They can't lead. The GOP leadership occupying the White House and the majority positions in Congress is pathetically incompetent, and Republicans are finally forced to publicly admit that fact. Video at C&L.
