Perhaps “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski’s take on Joe Scarborough’s conservatism as being elegant, articulate and non-aggressive isn’t as spot on as she thought, but it is entertaining to see the former Florida Republican congressman get fired up on his MSNBC program.

The question: Do politicians really care about the deficit, or is it just a talking point used to score political points? According to Scarborough, they don’t – particularly Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush. On his December 13 show, Scarborough launched into a rant about federal politicos and their posturing on deficit spending and the national debt.

“Any president that gave a damn about the deficit would not have added a trillion dollars to the national debt,” Scarborough said. “He doesn’t give a damn about it. He never has. George W. Bush never gave a damn about it. He never did. The Republicans don’t care about it. The Democrats don’t care about it – because if they did, we wouldn’t be going from $5 trillion in 2000 of the national debt to $16 trillion over the next couple of years.”

“Morning Joe” panelist John Heilemann suggested Scarborough stay tuned for Obama’s State of the Union address in a month, to which Scarborough said it would just be talk like every other attempt at voicing fiscal responsibility.
