The Morning Joe show is deteriorating -- they have the same old guests on over and over -- Nora McDonnel, Howard Dean, Eugene Robinson, Jeffrey Sachs and a few others, mostly from the Left, and it's getting staid. The humor is painful to watch -- Joe Scarborough is inserting himself far too much and he just doesn't have the talent to pull it off.
This morning, for the hour I watched, there was about 50 minutes of boring silliness and a few minutes discussing one of their favorite topics -- the possible, insufficient Republican candidates. Then they talked about another favorite topic -- the politics of the budget battle. One interesting comment made by Joe S. was when he told Howard Dean that they agreed on a lot things and could find a compromise to entitlements and spending. If Joe S. agrees with Howard Dean on very much at all, then Joe S. is a modern liberal pretending to be a "small" government conservative, as he's fond of calling himself.
It's been obvious that Joe S. is a modern liberal, not that there is anything wrong with that except being wrong about everything political, but at least he should admit it and proudly own it. You know, I'm a little tired of hearing about the politics of the budget battle -- it's time for people to stand up to Obama and the Democrats, and unserious Republicans, who are blocking reform. Damn the politics, because the public is becoming a little too knowledgable for the politics of the past to work -- all the games are old games and most people are tired of games -- and this is why Obama is losing independents.
