It's funny how Joe Scarborough is smirking and parading around like a stupid ostrich because Mr "Genius" thinks that Dems will lose their majority for voting for the Health Care Bill. As imperfect as this bill is, we can only applaud the courage of Dems in the senate and the house for at least trying to fix the system.
It's funny how after months screaming that the Dems wanted to socialize the Health Care System and to bankrupt the Private Sector (i.e Insurance compagnie, Mr Joe Scarborough is now complaining that this bill is a gift to the private sector. And now, of course, Joe is now the new Mr "I care more about unions than Elijah Cummings". I really don't get his twisted logic. They had Rep. (D-MD) Elijah Cummings on, and every chance Cummings had to explain how the House will try to change the Senate bill to the better, guess what ? Mr Joe Scarborough was cutting him and never let him speak.
Honestly I don't get the point of inviting someone on your show and don't let him speak. I was more impressed by Mike Barnicle who at least defended this bill saying it will help millions of people despite its imperfections. I give some kudos to Cummings for trying to defend the Dems Plan. I would have walked out if someone invites me on his show to talk me down. Yes the bill isn't perfect, but what the GOP is proposing ? The republicans had 8 years, but never reformed the Health Care system ? Didn't they vote for funding an universal health Care system for Iraq under the Bush Administration ?
The fight isn't over yet, as Rep. Elijah Cummings said, the senate bill can be and will be fixed, and improve in the conference commitee. I love how Joe Scarborough is bragging about his years in congress to justify his opposition the Dems Plan for Health Care. If he was that savvy in politics, why isn't he the junior Senator from Florida ?
I'm hoping that Comcast makes some changes at MSNBC and gives the morning slot to a true progressive since Comcast CEO Brian Roberts is reported to be a "democrat" and worked for Gov Ed Rendell. Joe mocked Bill Clinton because of the upcoming book revealing Lewinsky's new allegations, why people don't ask him question about his dead intern anyway ?
Or maybe Joe Scarborough really thinks that he has some chance to win the GOP nomination in 2012. Ha !
