MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has a solution for the Republican Party’s electoral woes: take on conservative talk radio. On Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Scarborough likened conservative talkers to schoolyard bullies and suggested Republicans “punch them in the face,” which is something Mitt Romney failed to do during his campaign, Scarborough said. “What do you do to a schoolyard bully? You punch them in the face. You think any of these people on talk radio, if they’re punched in the face by a Republican nominee, you think they would push back?” Scarborough said. “No, they are cowards.
Comments: Morning Schmo used to talk about being the "Keep Calm and Carry On" voice of reason. Now he´s inciting metaphorical violence.
Let´s see, why don´t we compare the ratings. How many people hear Joe.....how many people listen to conservative talk radio.
Hey Joe, we aren´t Republicans. We are CONSERVATIVES. When the Republican Party ceases to be conservative.....we cease to be Republicans. THAT is what the party is afraid of and what puts them in a bind. We might not be able to elect all the conservatives we need. But we can sure as hell put the Republican Party dead in the water.
Scarborough like the "progressive" crowd he runs with can only react emotionally and irrationally. With all this talk about punching bullies, he hasn´t set forth his arguments why conservatives´ ideas are found wanting or untrue, safe for the fact that these ideas may be currently unpopular, thanks to Obamascare tactics, and may not have resulted in victory for the Republicans this time. Or perhaps, Obama did cheat and steal the election.
These ideas are important enough not to be censored by the "end justifies the means" Republican elite, just to grasp for power because they are the same ideas that may help reanimate a dying American culture slowly picked off by the ravening vultures of the Hollyweird-Lamestream Media Complex.

Joe has a credibility problem. He voluntarily appears on a network that has Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow. Scarborough allowed Chris Matthews to call Reince Priebus a racist at the GOP convention...on Joe´s show...as Joe sat there. Joe Scarborough has a regular guest in John Heileman. The same Heileman appeared on Chris Matthews show and said that the word ´Chicago´ (when used by Republicans) was racist code. Scarborough´s show has Al "Freddie Fashion Mart" Sharpton as a regular guest. That is Joe Scarborough.
If I hear or read any conservative publication repeating anything from MSNBC, I immediately turn them off or stop reading.
Conservative news outlets have so many other priorities we should be focusing on. And we´re not. And MSNBC knows it. Scarborough and Chris Matthews have their jobs for one reason - MSNBC knows that they get under our skin. And because they do, these guys lead the discussion.
Conservative media needs to begin focusing on the results of failed liberal policies. Interview some Black Americans who can´t get jobs. Interview some Mexican citizens who´s loved ones were killed with the guns that Eric Holder sent across the border. Let´s have a talk with Ambassador Christ Steven´s family - we heard a lot from Valerie Plame´s husband!
Quit following the liberal´s lead. Change the discussion, turn up the heat on them for a change.
Mitt Romney went on Hannity. Mitt Romney went on Rush´s show, wait, no he never. Mitt Romney went on Glenn Beck, wait, no he never. Mitt Romney went on Mark Levin´s show, wait, no he never, that was Riese Priebus. Perhaps Mitt Romney went on Wilkow, wait no, he never. Joe has a point, the next GOP nominee might try actually checking in with the base this time. You know, for fun.
Rush Limbaugh Mark Levin Shawn Hannity Tammy Bruce Bill O´Reilly et al
are cowards? Seriously? Punch any of these folks & you will have a real fight on your hands. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Levin in particular, could take you out with both hands tied behind his back. Conservatives have the facts on their side & they know them backwards & forwards -- not liberal talking points. You are (shark) toast, buddy. Metaphorically speaking.
Oh zip your lip, big mouth. This plea for violence is only going to encourage the liberal mental defectives who smash windows, slash tires, beat up black men in wheelchairs, bite off fingers of bystanders at rallies, pie speakers, egg speakers, send powder in envelopes, etc. We have had more than enough of thug violence, punk, so use your mike to educate your audience. They desperately need correct information.
As far as bullies on talk radio, refute their talking points with words, fool.
Joe you would have to have a pair to even try the ladies of radio. They would just leave you as an embarrassed bloody blob on the streets, maybe you can get some of the Obama liberal labor thugs to go along and protect you from the ladies.
My advice is sit down and shut up always remember "It is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and confirm that you are a fool"
i guess it isn´t enough for the left to label those who disagree as fascist, nazi, racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. here´s a new label, bully! so he thinks if someone disagrees with you, you should perpetrate a violent assault on them. liberal fascist.
in my whole life, i´ve never heard or seen anything like this from the right. on the right we use reasoned debate, not fists.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong. It’s fundamentally wrong for this reason: The difference between what are being called the hard right and the moderates, the RINOs and the true believers, is really one
During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.
On Wednesday’s edition of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer faced off against left-leaning show anchor Jon Stewart on conservative ideology and the way it is presented. In this rare appearance on Stewart’s program, Krauthammer was promoting his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” and explained how in working on the book he realized when he had made the transformation from liberal to conservative. STEWART: Thirty years — do you ever look back on some of these writings and think, ‘What was I thinking?’ KRAUTHAMMER: It’s worse than that.
At an event in Birmingham, Ala. Monday night, former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson revealed that he had received a visit from the Internal Revenue Service following his much-noted remarks at a National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year. “I had my first encounter with the IRS this year, unsurprisingly after the prayer breakfast,” Carson told an audience that at the annual Business Council of Alabama Chairman’s Dinner, according to a report from Cliff Sims of the Montgomery, Ala.-based Yellowhammer News. Carson’s February speech February made him a conservative darling for criticizing President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care reform law
WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.
During an interview with conservative talker Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, Sen. Mike Lee defended the much-criticized “defund Obamacare” strategy that he and Sen. Ted Cruz are spearheading. “My job, Laura, is to do everything I can to protect the people from bad law and bad policy, which we have in Obamacare,” Lee said. “I can’t look at this and say because this law is unpopular, because this law is going to be rejected ultimately by the American people as unworkable, and because that could inure to the benefit of the Republican Party, that justifies me in staying
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
