Starting with the Obama situation
6:02 a.m. The topic is the photos and Obama
6:04 a.m. Barnicle: It’s good that he listens to the generals on this one instead of the polls.
6:06 a.m. Willie wasn’t invited? Must have been because he voted for Miss California.
6:08 a.m. That is a very classy line by the president. Very well said.
6:14 a.m. “I pulled something but not a string.” Mika’s head is on the desk Joe turned around and Willie walked away so Barnicle had to do the next bit. That moment was worth being up this early.
6:20 a.m. You know the idea that this is to protect democratic pols didn’t hit me at all.
6:24 a.m. Take Obama away from the Democratic party and they are weak. Everyone agrees. I guess Mrs. Clinton star has truly fallen.
6:30 a.m. Market down unexpectedly. Is it?
6:33 a.m. What parent would put their child on the local airline after this?
6:39 a.m. We will leave it there on the joke.
6:41 a.m. Until someone else steps up Rush is it, that’s true but I think that Rush is right and the more people who actually hear him will agree, but then again I think the best voice I heard was on morning joe two days ago.
6:43 a.m There was not one tea party when George Bush was president. Harold never heard of Porkbusters or saw the graph. As Glenn pointed out there was a protest, it was the elections of 2006 & 2008 when conservatives stayed home.
6:57 a.m. Put your phone on vibrate, Barnicle is not allowed to comment. That was funny and Gibbs is right.
6:59 a.m. Did anyone else notice Barnicle’s hand was under the table during the entire Maxim 100 segment?
7:02 a.m. They do a lot of fund raisers don’t they?
7:06 a.m. This will all come out. Joe was right about the democrats on this and he is right about this.
7:07 a.m. Harold Ford is right again. Joe is right, he would make an acceptable moderate republican.
7:09 a.m. Joe I like you but you aren’t a Catholic, Barnicle is and should know better.
7:10 a.m. This isn’t a speech code, he is being given a honorary degree at a CATHOLIC university when he is radically pro abortion. That is contrary to our beliefs.
7:11 a.m. You know if I’d been tailing this guy for 40 min i might have lost it up front too.
7:13 a.m. Mark my words it will be AFTER the Notre Dame speech. His appointment is going to be a kick in the teeth to ND.
7:14 a.m. Harold and Joe make a good point but that is because like slavery Abortion is a seminal issue of good vs evil. It can’t help but be the point.
7:16 a.m. This all sounds nice but the job of a judge is to read the law and rule based on what it says. Not on what their life experience gives them. They are umpires. Their job is to apply the rules.
7:18 a.m. I think Richard Hass is exactly wrong on these issues. I predict before he actually comes on his arguments will the opposite of what is correct.
7:32 a.m. Jed Babbin on Morning Joe?
7:39 a.m. He points out that Powell ran out on his own and points out his bs on the Plame scandal.
7:47 a.m. It is a lot more complicated when it is your stuff. It’s a question of protecting troops in Afghanistan. Hass proves me wrong right away. Good for him!
7:48 a.m. There is nothing more satisfying than being proved wrong when you think ill of people’s opinion, I hope president Obama proves me wrong a lot.
8:06 a.m. You know that Savannah is a real good sport. The time will come when she can take over Mika’s chair. Mika better watch out.
8:22 a.m. You can say things on this show but you will be accurately represented.
8:26 a.m. Ad Hoc decisions?
8:37 a.m. The great morning joe Wars are on. MSNBC vs CNBC
8:38 a.m. This is a lot of fun, but relative to the other Joe he is liberal.
8:40 a.m. You are copying CNBC you have 6 boxes up.
8:42 a.m. And these guys are talking about the big tent that the republicans need?
8:48 a.m. Monica Pelosi. Barnicle is off the hook.
