While the Gingrich campaign might be very happy that they received the endorsement of the editorial board of the New Hampshire Union Leader, the same can't be said for Joe Scarborough or the panel on Morning Joe this Monday morning.
Scarborough blasted the paper for this statement, saying he'd like to know what conservative principles they thought Newt Gingrich stood for:
Newt Gingrich is by no means the perfect candidate. But Republican primary voters too often make the mistake of preferring an unattainable ideal to the best candidate who is actually running. In this incredibly important election, that candidate is Newt Gingrich. He has the experience, the leadership qualities and the vision to lead this country in these trying times.
Scarborough praised Mitt Romney as the GOP's best chance to beat President Obama in the general election, but he went after him for his flip flopping almost as hard as he did Gingrich during this segment. Scarborough also admitted that the conservative base hates Mitt Romney.
I'm ready to break the popcorn out if we actually see Newt Gingrich win a couple of the early primary races.
