Scarborough: ‘Obama Overreacted To Bush’s Reaction To 9/11′ (Washington Free Beacon)

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough told co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist that Barack Obama’s UN speech on Wednesday was an example of the president “facing reality” after six years of criticizing the policies of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

“This is Barack Obama, dare I say it, chastened by the realities of the first five or six years, learning that maybe he overreacted to Bush’s reaction to 9/11,” Scarborough said.

“And dealing with the harsh realities of the situation he’s been dealt,” Geist said. “He understands now that this is a serious threat and the rhetoric of the last few years doesn’t apply any more and now it’s about american force.”
