MSNBC Joe Scarborough Praises Ron Paul Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jun 12, 2012, 06:58 PM
The MSNBC TV host of “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough, who represented Florida’s 1st Congressional District in the House of Representatives from 1995 to 2001, had written an article about Texas Congressman Ron Paul to explain why he voted for him.

According to Politico, “after spending six months analyzing each (GOP presidential) candidate’s every move for three hours a day, five days a week, it never occurred to me that my decision to vote for the quirky congressman from Texas would happen as fast as a tornado through an Amarillo parking lot. After all, who would vote for a candidate that criticized the killing of Osama bin Laden, blamed U.S. foreign policy for Sept. 11 and wants to abolish Social Security?”

Scarborough noted that, “Paul was fighting the Republicans to balance the budget for the first time in a generation. Congressman Paul spent all his waking hours focused on dismembering that big government beast.”

As reported by Politico, “it was the first ‘protest’ vote I’ve ever cast … well, it felt good. Suddenly, I understood a bit better why the Ross Perot or the Pat Buchanan or the Ralph Nader voters did what they did.”

Scarborough wrote about how he felt “good” to vote for Ron Paul, despite knowing that he won’t get the GOP presidential nomination.
