MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough had defiant words for conservative bloggers Thursday following GOP contender Rick Perry’s debate gaffe: He’s always right and they’re always wrong.
Following Perry’s stumble — whom Scarborough declared “finished” — the only viable candidates capable of winning the Republican nomination are Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman, he said.
Saying he accurately predicted the campaign downfalls of both Michele Bachmann and Perry, Scarborough said he’s right on this one — though that’s a hard pill to swallow for the bloggers who deride him as a “Republican in Name Only” (RINO).
“I hate to tell you the truth when it upsets you so much — I don’t want to screw up your morning,” Scarborough said. “I’m just always right and that offends you too — but go ahead. I’m talking to right-wing bloggers now. Nothing personal. Right-wing bloggers — I know it drives you crazy: I was right about Bachmann. I was right about Perry. I’m right all the time. And I know my Republican Party better than you know your Republican Party and it pisses you off and I understand why it would. Because you’re always calling me a RINO and I’m always right about my party and you’re always wrong.”
Scarborough made similar references to “his” Republican Party last month when he said the entire party had “lost their way.”
