MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski Gushingly Admits: Joe Biden Is 'Our Guy,' Also, 'I Love Him'
Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski began Monday's show by gushing over Joe Biden, enthusing that the Vice President is "our guy." She also rhapsodized, "I love him" [MP3 audio available here]. The MSNBC anchor's comments came in the wake of an appearance Biden made on Sunday where he declared Democrats would retain the House and the Senate.
Brzezinski, who makes no effort to hide her affiliation with the current administration, just cannot seem to get enough of Biden. At one point, she touted, "I got to tell you, I have got a great deal of respect for him and his ability to get the point across."
This despite the fact that Biden has made an incalculable number of blunders as Vice President, including: telling President Obama that the health care bill was a "big f'___ deal," or perhaps citing that even if the stimulus was passed and even, "If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there's still a 30 percent chance we're going to get it wrong."
Nevertheless, the hosts on Morning Joe nonchalantly pushed those gaffes aside, claiming that the Vice President "is the most effective communicator for their message."
The following is a transcript of the segment as it was aired on the July 19 edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe:
