MSNBC's Joe Scarborough Says He's Not Sure Why "I Would be a Republican" - Video 1/18/10


Here is video of Joe Scarborough this morning on MSNBC where he balked at being identified as a "Republican," or as "Eric Cantor's friend." Scarborough was reacting to a statement by Democrat operative Bob Shrum who described GOP House Minority Whip Eric Cantor as his "friend." Scarborough said, "Eric Cantor is not my friend," and even said he is "trying to figure out why the hell I would be a Republican."

Newsbusters reached out to Scarborough for clarification of his comments, and he said he is coming at this out of his belief that the GOP should stand for less government, lower taxes, balanced budgets, and a "less Wilsonian foreign policy."

Here's the whole quote from Joe-
Some might be tempted to take Scarborough's statement as a sign he's moved left. But when I reached out to Joe, he provided this explanation of his remarks:

I became a Republican because I believe in less government, tax cuts, balanced budgets and a rejection of Wilsonian foreign policy.

For the past five years, the GOP in Washington has increased deficits, doubled the national debt, championed a $7 trillion explosion in entitlement programs, and promoted a foreign policy that would make Woodrow Wilson blush.

The Republican Party in Washington needs to reform itself or die. I admire people like Paul Ryan, Ron Paul and John Shadegg but I am waiting to see if the Republican leaders in DC will follow their approach to championing less government and mean it.
