For your discussion and debate #1 Some poll results are more permanent than others

Looking at current polls. Obama is shown in poll with only 40% or so believing he deserves re-election. Joe points out in perspective saying that his polls were comparable with Clinton 2004 & Reagan 1982, can’t make this the last word…

…then in the same poll Obama is shown beating Sarah Palin in a 2012 match up and the Same Joe Scarborough touts this as more proof that she can sell books but can’t be elected and Mika breathes a sigh of relief.

My take: How is one poll a snapshot of time and the other set in stone? Joe’s point about the president is right but it applies equally to Sarah Palin. How was Reagan polling in 1978 for example?

For your discussion and debate #2 Some stories are more relevant than others

Colbert took his act to SNL The comedy connection a congressional hearing on Friday and Mika’s reaction indicates she found it just as appealing and appropriate as leading the day’s news with Paris Hilton. Her comment was classic: “Who are these people who are the 21% that approve of congress?” Mark Halperin pointed out Pelosi & Hoyer disagreed on the appearance noting that this should be a bigger story….

…yet there was not a word about the other Friday Hearings on the air DOJ RACISM SCANDALS made the Washington Post front page but as of 7:08 Morning Joe hasn’t touched it. I submit that this is not coincidence. I think democrats wanted that coverage off of TV and as far as Morning Joe goes, that’s exactly what they’ve got. As John Nolte put it: Mission Accomplished.

My Take: I know they had their education day scheduled for a while but I’d like to see Mika decide for the 8 a.m. hour to lead with Christopher Coates testimony instead of Colbert a-la Paris. She has 45 minutes. Will she do it?

    I can’t believe the hypocrisy. Back off Levi. It’s obvious he’s cashing in on his new found celebrity. Aren’t all of you doing that with your books. So he’s no einstien and I think it’s ludicrous that he could become a mayor however looking at the long list of non performing and corrupt politicians in this country. What’s the diff that he doesn’t understand science or world politics. How could he be any worse?

    I agree with your son,Joe. Facebook is a place for insecure people who desire attention from anyone! Also, tell Donnie that I watch you all every morning from the Gulf Coast – Lafayette,Louisiana and it’s 5am here!!! From NJ originally and miss the tri-state area terribly. Keep giving me my Morning Joe!!!
