Mika Statement, Dems, decided very early on from day one, that they were going to put their short-term political interests ahead of what was good for our country? really? Liberal women, so lost in space, it un real!
MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski gave an fawning interview to former Obama Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett Thursday morning in a harsh reminder of just how differently reporters treated the Obama Administration compared to the current administration. Mika couldn’t contain her excitement at getting to talk to Jarrett even begging the former advisor repeatedly to get herself, Michelle or Barack involved in politics again, to “save the party.”
I still, though, wonder like, is there any flash in time, election night or in the days after, God, I saw some brutal pictures of some really devastated faces, could you ever have imagined and was there a moment when you realized the next president is going to be the man who rose to power on the birther movement, of all things?
Mika then begged Jarrett in a series of questions for her to run or Michelle Obama.As you heard President Obama say before he left, one of his biggest disappointments was this toxic nature in Washington and how I think the Republicans decided very early on from day one, that they were going to put their short-term political interests ahead of what was good for our country. Just think about it Mika. When President Obama took office we were losing 750,000, 800,000 jobs a month, the unemployment rate up to 10%. Wouldn't you think that's a time where people would say let's come together and try to solve these big problems. I think I just didn't fully appreciate coming in just how the entrenched special interests would hold on with a stranglehold to that status quo and that change, it was terrifying to them and it meant giving up power and putting it back in the hands of the American people and there was a lot of resistance to that.
Is it possible to have an impact post-White house and is there a political future for you? There was once potential Senate run?
