Senate GOP Trying to Recruit MSNBC’s RINO Joe Scarborough to Run Against Bill Nelson in 2012 Florida Senate Race


When will Republicans ever learn? JUST SAY NO TO JOE!

Ever wonder why the GOP became the minority in the US Senate by a near super-minority? It was for the exact reasons like the report from The Hill, where the GOP is wooing MSNBC’s Joe  Scarborough to runagainst incumbent Democrat Senator Bill Nelson in Florida. Republican voters do not want RINO’s, especially in a state that in the last election say victory for Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Republican/Tea party Conservative Marco Rubio.

Republicans in Washington are trying to recruit Joe Scarborough to run against Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) next year.

Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), who heads the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), told The Hill on Thursday that he has talked to Scarborough a couple times about a Senate bid. And he indicated he’s still working on persuading the MSNBC host to run for the upper chamber.

Name recognition, that’s what the blue blood, country club Republicans think that “We the People” want and the country needs? NAME RECOGNITION? One might want to ask what name recognition that Marco Rubio had when he won in a landslide in his Florida US Senate race. As stated by Weasil Zippers, “No effen RINOs. I guess we didn’t make ourselves clear enough last November”. What more message to the clueless GOP establishment need? Did the powers that be in the GOP Senate not learn when they backed RINO, turncoat Charlie Crist? How out of touch is the  NRSC?

Cornyn noted on Thursday that Scarborough’s name ID is higher now than it was back then. Scarborough has been with MSNBC for the past eight years, initially hosting “Scarborough Country” and now “Morning Joe.”

Scarborough is happy with what he is doing, Cornyn stressed. But Cornyn also made it clear that he thinks there is a chance Scarborough could run.

      RE Update it’s in NY that Coryn wants Joe to run. Either way he has the stench of MSPMS all over him.

      Maybe it is time for John Cornyn to go home and get out of the way just like Kay Bailey Hutcheson.

      Got to get all the RINOs out of the way. It will take another election cycle to make the GOP wake up to what the people really want in the way of elected congress critters.

      He left Congress under a dark cloud. He should run as a Democrat.

      Pardon me, but did you realize Mr. Scarborough was a U.S. House Representative from 1995 until 2001 for Florida’s 1st district? Scarborough was reelected with 72 percent of the vote in 1996. In 1998 and 2000, he was opposed by only a write-in candidate. Check out his credentials. We here in North Florida, would welcome him in the U.S. Senate! I’m really surprised by your opinion. Mr. Scarborough represents the conservative agenda and he is very highly regarded in this area.

      …I could not agree more as he is a true fiscal conservative, still a real Republican and we would do well to have him serve our country once more.
      SM: Me thinks Joe has spent one too many days at MSNBC.

      Joe has got to go! If he thinks Floridians will forget how liberal he comes across on his morning show, he can count on the Tea Party to remind them!
