Scarborough Seven Dem Senators
I have no doubt that Joe Scarborough is truthful when he says Democrat Senators complain to him that President Obama doesn’t know what he doing. That is their interpretation. To me it means that the President doesn’t consider the consequences of his actions with regard to political consequences. Obama is a firebrand who charges ahead with his agenda be-damned the politics. In the end, he can say he tried his best, but “Washington” and the establishment wouldn’t let him do it.
That is what I have been saying about liberal Democrats. They never deliver. They put up appearances. They complain and blame, and they can’t govern. They have no experience being successful at anything that matters. Community organizers my ass.
“Dem Senators privately griping to Joe Scarborough about Obama?
By Greg Sargent
Is it possible that some of the most powerful Dem Senators in the country are privately bitching to Joe Scarborough, of all people, about President Obama?
No idea if it's true or not. But that's what Scarborough alleged on MSNBC this morning. Before you jump on me for quoting Scarborough on this, allow me to make a point about it.
Scarborough, much to Republicans' delight, claimed that Dems in Washington have been "horrified by this president's handling of things for a year and a half now," adding that the "top Democrats in the United States Senate have all told me individually this guy has no idea what he's doing."
Scarborough specifically claimed that "Democratic chairman in the Senate" -- among the most powerful Dems in Congress -- had complained privately to him that Obama had failed to adequately include Reublicans in the governing process:
Sure, Scarborough could very well be exaggerating wildly or makin' it up. But you know something? Having watched Congress up close for the past two years -- the backbiting, the shortsightedness, the scheming, the elevation of individual careers over party, and the bizarre addiction some Dems have to currying favor with journalists and outlets who are openly hostile to them -- It wouldn't surprise me at all if there's some truth to it.”
