There are some things you can only see on MSNBC. They are biased with an attitude. Take for example Today’s Morning Joe program. The program began with a discussion of the anti-American protests in the Middle East.

Host Joe Scarborough segued into the conservative complaints with the press coverage of the situation, that the media covered Romney’s statements instead of Obama’s gaffes.  He called the complaints valid, but you know who he blamed for the press not doing it’s job? Mitt Romney!

You see Romney used basically the same language about Obama this week as Scarborough used Obama when he announced the bombing of Libya in March 2011. Obviously that’s a bad thing.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Talk about the conservative critique–and I think it’s a fair critique, the conservative critique: that all you guys in the media were talking about Mitt Romney, you should have talked about the warnings with the embassy, etc., etc. And yes perhaps we should have. But you know who didn’t allow us to do that?


SCARBOROUGH: Mitt Romney. If Mitt Romney had kept his mouth shut, if he had not acted like a rank amateur, if he had not embarrassed himself–and by the way internally the campaign understands they screwed up, he’s moved on, they know that. So no conservative can say “oh, the mainstream media, blah, blah.” They know how badly they screwed up, and they were having the fight internally before he even went out and did it. But Romney got in the way of the media looking at the president, going, wha-, wha-, what happened here? How did this happen? Now, those questions are going to be asked in the coming weeks. But they weren’t asked in the first 24 hours because Romney was holding this horrific, irresponsible, press conference.

That’s a strange reaction from the Morning Joe host.  Last year, he blasted the President’s bombing campaign in Libya wondering why we were fighting first, asking questions later, at the time he said that the Administration was sending a muddled message and  Kerry and the White House were justifying the start of another
foreign war by pretending that they had not launched another foreign
We learned two things from Joe Scarborough this morning. The first thing is when the press screws up and reports in a biased way…it is simply Mitt Romney’s fault. His second lesson is it is OK for Joe Scarborough to bash a President, saying he had a muddled message when commits troops to Libya, but it is NEVER OK for Mitt Romney to say that same President is sending “mixed signals.”  
Muddled Message Good!    Mixed Signals BAD!   Understand? Yeah, me neither.
