Scarborough Tears into GOP: Obama’s Doing What You Want, But All You Do Is Criticize (Mediaite)

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough lit into his Republican Party Tuesday morning for criticizing President Barack Obama even when Obama does what the GOP has been demanding he do, namely more forcefully respond to the ISIS threat in Iraq and Syria. Reiterating a recurring point of his, that politics should stop at the waters edge, Scarborough called for the GOP to rally around the president in the fight against ISIS.
