Joe Scarborough is either openly advertising he wants to run for President or he has some strange idea of how to transform the political process into three deep divisions -- the Left/minorities/single women/gays against southern/rural/middle class white workers against businesspeople/executives/entrepreneurs/rich people.
The Morning Joe panel agreed with Scarborough regarding a third party inspired by southern populism after they all laughed at Romney and called him out of touch with common people. Did you know that Romney said he likes Paris and looks forward to vacationing there in the future? Yes he did. Doesn't Romney know that the Republican base hates Paris and everything French except the doors and fries? Scarborough said that the south is not excited with the prospect of Romney as candidate, and Scarborough knows the south. Yes, he lives in NYC, but he once lived in the south, and he can relate to those people (y'all, grits, guns, country music, farming, chewing tobacco, NASCAR, etc.). I wonder who would make a good southern populist candidate? Hmmmm. I wonder, I wonder -- oh well, someone will come to mind.
I have to wonder, also, why the Leftist panel on Morning Joe agrees with Scarborough that a southern populist third party is desirable. I would think that the Left sees southern populism as racist, gun-toting rednecks holding Obama is Hitler signs. What the hell is going on here? Is this some deep level political ploy to reignite the southern Tea Party movement in rebellion against Frenchy Mitt, split the Republican Party and ensure an Obama win? A southern populist third party? Oh my.
The Centrists and the Liberals are going to criticize Romney for everything he says and doesn't say and everything he does and doesn't do. The war against Republicans is on in the media, and the fact that the Obama administration is using the strategy of Romney as Rightwing Extremist while Scarborough and some Leftists are calling Romney a French-loving snob who's hated by southern populists shows how confused the attacks on Romney have become. It's pure desperation over the prospect of losing power. Statists realize more than the rest of the nation what's at stake when you control the legalized theft machine in DC.
