The interesting thing for me is not that Halperin thought it, but that he said it thinking it would not make it to the airwaves. Compare such a frank assessment to how Scarborough initially tried to portray Obama merely as playing to the base.
Obama did more than play to the base. His attitude was true to his 2008 campaign and the entirety of his presidency.
Halperin has been suspended by MSNBC “indefinitely.” But Obama, who falsely accused Republicans of wanting to sacrifice children, the elderly, and sick people for the benefit corporate jet owners, still is in office.
