You mean 2008 Wasn't Sarah Palin's fault?

Today on Morn­ing Joe Nicole Wal­lace was sit­ting in with Joe Scar­bor­ough & com­pany (sans Mika) and the sub­ject of Pres­i­dent Obama’s state­ment con­cern­ing the “pri­vate sec­tor is doing fine”.

Plenty of peo­ple have hit the pres­i­dent on this but there was an inter­est­ing twist on the sub­ject today begin­ning with the opening.

The Show started with John McCain’s “The fun­da­men­tals of the econ­omy are sound” state­ment with the Obama com­mer­cial that fol­lowed. Then then showed the president’s gaffe and Romney’s ad that fol­lowed. Joe, Nic­hole Wal­lace Steve Rat­tner and Mark Halperin started dis­cussing it and com­par­ing it to the McCain situation

As then talked about the mis­take Joe Scar­bor­ough said some­thing that some­one like myself would not find incred­i­ble, but to peo­ple on MSNBC would have been a shock.

Scar­bor­ough noted that John McCain and Sarah Palin were rid­ing high until that gaffe. He made the point that the pub­lic after that point got the idea McCain had no idea what to do about the econ­omy and he never recov­ered. Every­one at the table agreed.

While I would sug­gest the “sus­pen­sion” of the cam­paign was more impor­tant, this was a water­shed moment for MSNBC.

Even with Nic­hole Wal­lace at the table (who I will refrain from tweak­ing fur­ther as she is expect­ing) nobody a the table inter­rupted to say any­thing like: Well that gaffe was bad but the real prob­lem with the cam­paign was Sarah Palin

Nope, not a peep, not a sound, sud­denly the actual real­ity of the sit­u­a­tion was put before MSNBC viewers.

Now if Palin had been the nom­i­nee I’m sure it would have played dif­fer­ently but for at least one morn­ing MSNBC and its viewer heard some­thing that they hadn’t heard before: that John McCain’s defeat was not due to Sarah Palin, but was due to his own mistakes.

It’s a start.

Exit ques­tion: If Mika was on set would they have hit Palin?

Update: Delayed reac­tion insta­lanche as I was away from my pc for a bit, thanks Glenn, don’t for­get to check out my advice to the Rom­ney Cam­paign invok­ing Brax­ton Bragg and my advice to the Kim­ber­lin & Co crowd invok­ing Robert Stacy McCain.

Today on Morning Joe Nicole Wallace was sitting in with Joe Scarborough & company (sans Mika) and the subject of President Obama’s statement concerning the “private sector is doing fine”.

Plenty of people have hit the president on this but there was an interesting twist on the subject today beginning with the opening.

The Show started with John McCain’s “The fundamentals of the economy are sound” statement with the Obama commercial that followed. Then then showed the president’s gaffe and Romney’s ad that followed. Joe, Nichole Wallace Steve Rattner and Mark Halperin started discussing it and comparing it to the McCain situation

As then talked about the mistake Joe Scarborough said something that someone like myself would not find incredible, but to people on MSNBC would have been a shock.

Scarborough noted that John McCain and Sarah Palin were riding high until that gaffe. He made the point that the public after that point got the idea McCain had no idea what to do about the economy and he never recovered. Everyone at the table agreed.

While I would suggest the “suspension” of the campaign was more important, this was a watershed moment for MSNBC.

Even with Nichole Wallace at the table (who I will refrain from tweaking further as she is expecting) nobody a the table interrupted to say anything like: Well that gaffe was bad but the real problem with the campaign was Sarah Palin

Nope, not a peep, not a sound, suddenly the actual reality of the situation was put before MSNBC viewers.

Now if Palin had been the nominee I’m sure it would have played differently but for at least one morning MSNBC and its viewer heard something that they hadn’t heard before: that John McCain’s defeat was not due to Sarah Palin, but was due to his own mistakes.

It’s a start.

Exit question: If Mika was on set would they have hit Palin?

Update: Delayed reaction instalanche as I was away from my pc for a bit, thanks Glenn, don’t forget to check out my advice to the Romney Campaign invoking Braxton Bragg and my advice to the Kimberlin & Co crowd invoking Robert Stacy McCain.
