MSNBC's Morning Joe Goes Ballistic (AGAIN)

What we have next is the very reason I gave up on watching MSNBC's Morning Joe.  Well, over two years ago I witnessed behavior from MSNBC's morning show ($100,000 per week) conservative show namesake that reminded of a spoiled children in a candy store. I have also grown great deal of disdain for his co host's demeanor with regard to Scarborough's acts.

If you need additional evidence of typical behavior for Scarborough, watch as his on air prop and dialog does not follow his script. You should also watch his tool  co host as she (outside of camera view)  seemed to touch Scarborough's leg in an effort to quell what she knew was coming, Moreover, what Brzezinski's face as she notices Todd is going outside of script.

Joe Scarborough Goes Ballistic On Chuck Todd Over Sgt. Bergdahl's Father

Why does Scarborough so remind of Bill O'Reilly? Why is there an obvious undercurrent of anger just below the surface in so many conservatives. If you find the last statement a bit of a subjective perspective, try interacting with a few conservatism on social media. 

Apparently, this morning Scarborough forgot to take his meds.  The background for the segment was rooted in the Clinton Global Initiative (The Clinton Foundation) and recent conservative efforts to use the Foundation as a magnet for large contribution for foreign contributors. Contributors also include icons of conservative America

Tamp Bay Times Politifact ran a piece on the Foundation. My reading did not yield enough about the initiative to raise any ire. Actually, other than the fact all donation recipient organization spend significant funds on administrative costs, the Foundation seems to at the "end-of-the-day" offer a degree of global "good."

Despite revelations of significant contributions to the Foundation from conservative Americans, Scarborough seemed to desire an anti-Hillary segment that simply did not go according to Hoyle.

It seems Scarborough left the set still fuming with silliness and an effort to discredit his guests choice of ananlogy. He tweeted the following after the show ended.
 FYI, the Nazi comparison on our set came from a Churchill quote from 1943 when England was at the height of its fight against Hitler.
I will defer additional comment due to my comments in the opening of this piece.

Reince Priebus: The Perfect Functionary and Political Tightroper

Reince Priebus

Priebus, Heilmann, Ford join Mika on the Morning Joe.

If you want to see the perfect example of a sniveling functionary and RNC operative, meet the current RNC Chair. 

Would you like to see an underlying reason Preibus comes across as obtuse and only 'half-alive'.  He has marching orders and probably he has the most precarious position in US politics.
Here are his marching orders.
Dear Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor:
For the first time, the activities of the Obama administration are receiving a sustained public vetting.  Americans’ outrage over Benghazi is amplified by the Internal Revenue Service’s intimidation of conservative grassroots organizations and a cascade of negative headlines.  There is the real sense the Obama administration has been less than forthright with the American people, the press and lawmakers.
Recent events have rightly focused the nation’s attention squarely on the actions of the Obama administration. It is incumbent upon the House of Representatives to conduct oversight hearings on those actions, but it would be imprudent to do anything that shifts the focus from the Obama administration to the ideological differences within the House Republican Conference.
To that end, we urge you to avoid bringing any legislation to the House Floor that could expose or highlight major schisms within the conference. Legislation such as the Internet sales tax or the FARRM Act which contains nearly $800 billion in food stamp spending, would give the press a reason to shift their attention away from the failures of the Obama administration to write another “circular firing squad” article.
Make no mistake, principled conservatives will still oppose bad policy if it comes to the floor.  Rather than scheduling such legislation for consideration, we urge you to keep the attention focused squarely on the Obama administration. As the public’s trust in their government continues to erode, it is incumbent upon those of us who support a smaller, less intrusive government to lead.

If you feel the addresses on the letter is the extent to which the ultra conservative Heritage foundation spreads its orders, you are naive.
