Morning Joe: Obama Would Have Voted For Iraq Invasion If He Was In The Senate In 2002

During the primary coverage on this morning's Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough attacked Barack Obama on his stance on Iraq. The Scar says that Obama shouldn't be so high and mighty about speaking out against the invasion of Iraq in 2002 because it was easy for him to speak out against the war during a Democratic primary, and if he had been in the Senate at that time, Scarborough knows Obama would have voted for the authorization. Impressive psychic abilities from the guy who also knew Rove had nothing to do with outing Valerie Plame, despite it being in the court records.

Brzezinski: "So you're questioning his motives when you say that."

Scarborough: "I'm not questioning his motives, Mika, you're not listening to me. I will tell you again, he spoke his heart, he said what he believed. He did not have the burden, the responsibility of voting on the most important vote in a very long time and I would bet you that if Barack Obama were in the Senate in 2002 he would have voted the way Joe Biden voted, Christopher Dodd voted, John Edwards voted, Hillary Clinton voted, the establishment of the Democratic Party voted."

Speaking of pulling facts out of thin air, Joe also gives John McCain partial credit for winning the Cold War and says that this is a winning issue for McCain to beat Obama.
