    Pass the Cheetos

    Pass the Cheetos

    Morning Joe (h/t Dan Riehl):

    >>let’s see, if i’m going on intrade and trying to figure out whether the future of the republican party belongs to grover norquist who i know and like or the jeb bushes of the world, i’m pretty confident jeb wins. i will tell you jeb bush’s republican party is a party of the future. i don’t compare myself to jeb. he is a great man, i am a mere servant of the jebular.

    >>jebular?

    >>but joe scarborough’s republican party is the future of the republican party. i’ve had people come up to me yelling and screaming, i say put your hair out. i say we’re going to take care of long-term debt. our goal will be to have gdp 19% of how much we spend on government. we’re going to try to keep taxes as low as possible but i’ll tell what you we’re not going to do, we’re not going to cut infrastructure for the next 50 years, we’re not going to cut r & d for the next 50 years not going to cut education for the next 50 years. we’re going to hold government responsible, we’re not going to let teachers unions wreck classes. mika will tell you we’ve been these speeches to the most conservative groups in america as well as the most liberal and they all agree. you can go online and act like a jack ass and say what you want to say. now everybody is calling jeb bush a rhino. just shut the hell up. can you stay in your mother’s basement, eat your cheetohs, type on your dinty laptop but you are not the future of the republican party so keep screaming at your walls downstairs, your day is done. jeb did something very important that i wish mitt romney would have done couple of years ago when glen beck was calling the president of the united states a racist and a bigot. jeb is speaking out. i think other republicans are starting to speak out. mitt romney doesn’t have the courage to speak out against this type of hatred but our day is coming, mike. our day is coming. when that party reemerges, oh, my god, the following they will get from swing voters. and i’m sure you agree, bill, as well.

    1. Joe Scarborough is an enemy of this country and the Constitution, and is a paid agent of their enemies. The only reason to listen to anything he says is to triangulate his position.

    2. That said, he may well be right, in that Jeb Bush will be the future of the Republican Party. That does not preclude him being a RINO, a DIABLO, an Institutional Republican, and/or about as useful as teats on a boar hog.

    3. Said future of the Republican Party may be that of their Whig predecessors. The only life and strength that remains in the Republican Party comes from the TEA Party/Patriot movement; me-too collaborationism with the destruction of the country not being a particularly dynamic plan for the future. And absent the TEA Party/Patriot movement, that is all they have left.

    4. Patriots will support the Republicans [and Romney] through November 6; not because we owe them fealty, but because we face a more deadly enemy who has to be removed as soon as possible. To quote Churchill as he explained allying with Stalin in WW-II:

    If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.

    In January, if the Institutionals try to revive the Democrats with kindness ….

    Wow… I actually do the InTrade play… Where’s this guy have his head? Grover’s not listed, Scarborough is only listed at 0.1% and Jeb is at a measly 1.5%.

    These are the ones he calls future of GOP?

    I seriously doubt he has any money at the market. Then again, if he wants to buy long, I would be more than willing to match him with the short sell. I don’t have any problem taking his money.

    DocWahala – I trust InTrade as a market driven poll, enough to risk my own money; there’s always going to be fools like him on the other side of the trade,living in their own make believe world.

    Many of us didn’t pay attention. We were busy with our jobs, our families and our churches. We mostly left this politics thing to the professional politicians. That’s a mistake we won’t make again, Joe.
    You boys took us down a bad road and you forgot where we came from. We didn’t forget!
    It will be a generation before we trust the “Establishment”, the professionals, again. It may be longer if our children hear our warnings. The most potent political force in America is an aroused citizenry. We are aroused now and won’t go back to sleep again, Joe.

    Jeb Bush might very well be the poster child for the GOP of the future. But how far out? 2016? 2020? Farther out? One thing I know for sure: The future is not now. I know it. You know it. I think even Jeb and the Bush family know it. If Joe doesn’t know it, he’s the one who needs to put his hair out.
