I was watching Morning Joe this morning and in utter amazement at the dialogue going on. For a moment I thought FOX had taken over the show. Here’s a clip caught by Think Progress:
What’s more, as Center for American Progress Action Fund President John Podesta pointed out to Scarborough minutes later, these tax cuts were something that “Barack Obama campaigned on all year long” — and he encountered the exact same fearmongering accusations of “socialism” from conservatives. If Americans didn’t support Obama’s tax plan, they wouldn’t have voted for him.
Yup – this country voted for Socialism by the Republican’s very definition. If they don’t like it then they can find a new place to call home, but that is what America wants, so Scarborough needs to get over himself.
But the fact is Scarborough and Buchanan both said they didn’t want help for the lower and middle class, but would rather have tax-cuts to the corporations. Again – screw us, but save them.
