Scarborough's Dishonest Attack On Romney's 'Gift'Gaffe'
Apparently, Democrats are so perfect, Republican Joe Scarborough once again has all kinds of time to rip into Mitt Romney. Today, on the pages of The Enemy, Morning Joe gives more aid and comfort to the media by ripping into Romney for his statement about how Obama turned out his base with the help of government-funded "gifts" aimed at various constituencies:
For Mr. Romney, the gaffe caught on camera and made public in September was that 47 percent of Americans are victims, grifters and thieves. And in a conference call with supporters on Wednesday, the former Massachusetts governor further exposed just how sheltered his life has been by explaining that these grifters were mostly minorities bought off with "gifts" from Barack Obama.
In the statement in question, Romney mentioned the fact that free health through ObamaCare and the granting of amnesty would woo lower-income Hispanics.
How is that not true?
When Obama granted that amnesty in the heat of the 2012 campaign, the same media beating Romney up today for his "gift" comments, breathlessly informed all of us that this amnesty move would help Obama with the Hispanic vote.
Moreover, Romney also said what the media did about the effect of ObamaCare on students; that being able to legally leach off mommy and daddy's health insurance well into their twenties was a huge incentive to come out and vote for Obama and ObamaCare.
Sounds like everyone's attacking Romney for agreeing with the media, the Democrats, and reality.
Scarborough then goes on to tell us what being a Republican is all about and invokes Thatcher and Reagan along the way.
Well, Thatcher and Reagan were many things, but most of all they were truth-tellers, and while I'm all broken up over Scarborough's anguish at having to be part of a Republican Party he's increasingly uncomfortable with, until you can show me how what Romney said was untrue, what say we stop with the neo-fascist political correctness. Because a lily-livered Republican Party afraid to point to the Democrats master plan of creating a culture of government dependency is a Party I and many others are going to get uncomfortable with.
Obama's entire campaign was a cynical one based in large part on division and freebies like birth control at the expense of religious liberty. If the GOP is going to be led or even influenced by PC cowards like Scarborough who are afraid to point this out, we really are doomed.
