Sunday morning on Meet The Press, MSNBC’s Morning Joe host, Joe Scarborough took issue with the “political amateurs” in the Tea Party.
“It’s not about compromise, it’s not even about ideological moderation,” Scarborough said. “It is, though, about political moderation. You’ve got to be relevant to the center of America. People forget this, but Republicans used to be the party to beat. Every four years Democrats would pull their hair out because they knew we’d figure out how to reach the middle of America…We’ve lost that.”
Scarborough also sent out this warning to his fellow conservatives:
“I say this to my very conservative friends,” he said. “We’ve got to figure out a way to move forward together. Or else you’re going to have Hillary Clinton for two terms. You’re going to have Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton picking supreme Court justices for six years and shaping the way our federal government’s run. That will transform government for fifty years.”
