Watching Morning Joe was very interesting. Michael Steele Pat Buchanan Joe Scarborough Bob Woodward on the Republican side. Mika Brzezinski on the Democratic side. Naturally, those four guys were going to town with an amazing show of "rewritten" history insisting they wanted to deal "only with reality". Then Michael Steele said the voters spoke LOUD AND CLEAR in November that they wanted Washington to bring down the deficit, according to Steele. Which was really odd to me. Because I saw this a little different: Unemployment was high Republicans ran on "Jobs Jobs Jobs" Americans were angry that the Bush/Republican fiasco hadn't been cleaned up fast enough Republicans said their number one priority would be "Jobs Jobs Jobs" Americans were desperate for jobs Republicans chanted "Jobs Jobs Jobs" Republicans were "swept back into office" Where according to Michael Steele, the message, loud and clear was, "Work on the Deficit". See, Republicans ran on "Job Jobs Jobs", or did they? Not according to Steele. Well, let's review the jobs packages the Republicans work on: They worked on the Obama "Stimulus Plan" for jobs. Making a third to half tax cuts (think Pay Roll) and working to gut the rest. Then there were their other jobs packages, like, well, someone help me here..... So, according to the four Republicans on MJ, Republicans want to extend this debate until the next presidential election, where, I'm guessing they will once again on "Jobs Jobs Jobs". Will America fall for it again? They ran on "Jobs Jobs Jobs" and then did nothing for "Jobs Jobs Jobs". I'm guessing because "Jobs Jobs Jobs" was "code" for "work on the deficit"? Will Republicans have another landslide? Will they run on "Jobs Jobs Jobs"? Will America believe that again? With the deficit in the middle of an election? Will America send a message that it was about "Jobs Jobs Jobs" or "work on the deficit"? So what was it? Jobs jobs jobs? or Work on the deficit?
