About the President being on the Morning Joe show on Monday. I'm speculating of course:

This is the beginning of the MSM or at the very least, Joe, Mika and crew starting to slant towards the re-election of the President. The numbers do not lie and they all know it. MJ pretty much sets the tone for MSNBC for most of the daily shows, sanity returns with Bashir. I'm thinking, in order to save face, Joe and crew will start to talk up President Obama and board the Obama train. I could be way off, but Joe does like being a "winner" and I'm thinking even he knows, as do his bosses, the numbers do not lie. The President will be re-elected and they want to be on the "winning team" of journalists. Whatcha all think?

1. I think I will watch Stephanie Miller

I would bet Joe wants to be the guy that takes the President down.

sink your political career ...

2. Good points.....and I don't think Romney would grant them an interview

(and the campaign said he wasn't doing any these last two weeks). So I think this is really a big deal for Morning Joe and they don't want to blow it.

3. You may have a point.

Joe has been in a piss poor mood the last few days and made an attempt at Kremlin style reporting, but at the end of the day he has a brain. I have little good to say about him, but I think when you peel away the exterior he has an attachment to his credibility. If he throws his hat in with the republican circle jerk he will end up looking like another republican dolt when Romney loses. I think he wants to hedge his bets.

4. Establishes the media narrative for the final week. Risky because JS could

spend the entire segment on Benghazi.

6. I think...

They'll be very respectful and interested in drawing out fantastic, intelligent details from our president.

Then they'll recut every sentence so they can spin it all out of context and hammer him with it until the election.

I loathe them with every fiber of my being.

I like your scenario better, but I'm a cynic. Sigh.

7. From some of Joe's comments he is leaning towards the president being re-elected.

I would be surprised if Joe will try and destroy the president. Joe knows the RNC lacked and the GOP has. Real uphill battle on it's hands.

12. Puleeze.

Joe could try all he wanted. He is so far from being a match for our president. That would be hilarious. I'd pay to see him try that, the squinty eyed bully that he is.

8. Does that mean Romney will be go on to be interviewed by Rachel, Ed or Tweety?

Tit for tat, as they used to say. If he doesn't, makes him look like a wimp.

Oh, wait! I guess he is.

he should go on with some friendly commentators to help motivate the BASE even more than they are.

13. Speculating? I think more like dreaming. Did you see MJ Friday?

Joe Scarborough while critical of Romney earlier this year is still entrenched in the Romney camp. He spent Friday morning on the Romney 'momentum' train and takes ever opportunity to play up Romney and while giving no such due to the President. He's constantly talking about Obama's job approval being below 50% and no president ever having won with a Job Approval below 50% even thought the presidents Job Approval have been hovering around 50% for some time. He also was talking about how the President has lost all his 8-15% lead with women voters and how Mitt leads in the national polls as if that's anything since Obama is leading in most of the swing states.

Scarborough is no fan of Obama, though Mika is. Scarborough now claims to be a big fan of President Clinton and fawns all over him but not so much with Obama. I'm sure he will be cordial with the President during his visit to the show, but I don't expect that he will experience any of Romney's flip/flops and suddenly be an advocate for Obama since he disagrees with much of Obama's policies as a conservative.

14. I dont think JS really wants RMoney as his president.

He doesn't like him that much or trust him. Even though he dislikes Obama, he doesn't despise him, and would rather play opposition to him and spend M-F mornings criticizing him than defending the clueless, disengaged, spoiled rich, cult-member.

22. I don't think Joe is a real fan of Romney.

Even though I don't like how JS takes over and forgets to listen I think he will be respectful.

Anyway, if Pres Obama can debate Romney, I think he'll be fine with Joe S.

19. Any crap Scarborough can throw at him Obama can handle. Bank on it.

I'm loving the fact that Obama's giving interviews to conservative hosts. Bring your A game, Barak and throw a bit of charm their way and they'll be eathing out of your hand.

23. I was remembering the interview a while back that President Obama....

.....gave to Rill O'Biley, and I think he will do well this time also. After all, the joe isn't any larger rfo (real fecal orifice) than Lose Cannon Bill is.

24. I think the Obama Team is playing Morning Joe.

It's on very early, sets the tone for the week. Either Obama gets soft treatment OR the coverage gets buried by polls and storm news. NO MSNBC reporter will be able to say the President does not give interviews. May push Romney into doing it Or not. I see it as a win win for the President. Seems like a centrist move to me.
