Quote Of The Day: Joe Scarborough On Newt Gingrich


“I will tell you –- just, if you’re scoring at home kids, Barack Obama and the sort of mushy progressive but moderate extending Bush tax cuts and tripling the number of troops in Afghanistan -– that is not left-wing Marxism or socialism. That is not the opposite of freedom. The opposite of freedom would be -– oh I don’t know... Gaddafi. That’s the opposite of freedom. Now that we have clarified that -— and clarified the fact that Newt Gingrich just can’t help himself. Calling Kathleen Sebelius ‘Stalin,’ saying Barack Obama is the opposite of freedom –- you can go ahead. I think we've clarified... why can’t you just say, ‘I disagree with his viewpoints’ instead of bringing up Stalin and Hitler and saying he’s the opposite of freedom. Gaddafi is the opposite of freedom. Al-Qaeda is the opposite of freedom. Why does he keep saying stupid things like that?” -Joe Scarborough, reacting to Newt Gingrich's speech at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans on Thursday.
