Joe Scarborough, possible 2016 presidential candidate, blames MSM incompetence on Mitt Romney; lashes out at Jonah Goldberg, Mark Steyn, Glenn Reynolds

Why didn’t the mainstream media scrutinize the Obama administration’s handling of the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Egypt and a U.S. consulate in Libya? According to MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, it’s all Mitt Romney’s fault:


JOE SCARBOROUGH: Talk about the conservative critique–and I think it’s a fair critique, the conservative critique: that all you guys in the media were talking about Mitt Romney, you should have talked about the warnings with the embassy, etc., etc. And yes perhaps we should have.  But you know who didn’t allow us to do that?


SCARBOROUGH: Mitt Romney. If Mitt Romney had kept his mouth shut, if he had not acted like a rank amateur, if he had not embarrassed himself–and by the way internally the campaign understands they screwed up, he’s moved on, they know that. So no conservative can say “oh, the mainstream media, blah, blah.” They know how badly they screwed up, and they were having the fight internally before he even went out and did it. But Romney got in the way of the media looking at the president, going, wha-, wha-, what happened here? How did this happen? Now, those questions are going to be asked in the coming weeks. But they weren’t asked in the first 24 hours because Romney was holding this horrific, irresponsible, press conference.      

Last night, after National Review Online’s Jonah Goldberg tweeted a rebuke from Mark Steyn, Scarborough doubled down:


The former Republican congressman managed to work in a swipe at blogger Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit:

That’s a reference to this must-read post in which Reynolds expresses outrage at law enforcement authorities’ treatment of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. (Nakoula reportedly may face jail time for making an anti-Muslim movie.)

If this is the start of Scarborough’s 2016 presidential run, he is off to a shaky start:



Glenn Reynolds:

“JOE SCARBOROUGH IS BASHING ME ON TWITTER, but that’s just because he’s afraid I’ll kill his campaign plans. #Reynolds2016″

#Reynolds2016? Now, that’s a presidential campaign we can support!
