On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch and host Joe Scarborough, at least for the moment, are advocating for Mitt Romney in “these frightening times.”
“There is a psychological reason to go to Mitt Romney, and that is, wow! We kind of made a mistake four years ago. (Closer to two years or six, depending on how you look at it.) We get to do a do-over. He was right about Syria, he was right about a lot of things,” said Deutsch.
The bizarre thing was what happened next. Scarborough actually agreed with him.
“I hate to say this Donny, I hate to say this, Donny, you’re dead right. There is a reason why Mitt Romney has come out of nowhere suddenly. These are frightening times,” Scarborough began.
“…You may not remember, but we only elected a certain kind of leader when the Soviets existed and we had to elect somebody with their finger on the bomb. You know who those type of people were? They were like Mitt Romney. We didn’t give a damn whether somebody was exciting. We didn’t give a damn whether they talked about hope, whether they talked about change, whether they could play saxophone on Arsenio Hall.”
“…We need somebody like Romney who has actually run something before…” Scarborough said.
