Joe Scarborough: Tea Party ‘Political Amateurs’ Who Are ‘Tarnishing GOP Brand’

10 Nov 2013, 2:06 PM PDT

MSNBC’s Morning Joe co host Joe Scarborough discussed his hopes that the GOP's past would translate into its future without a Tea Party on NBC's "Meet The Press."

“It’s not about compromise, it’s not even about ideological moderation. It is, though, about political moderation. You’ve got to be relevant to the center of America. People forget this, but Republicans used to be the party to beat. Every four years Democrats would pull their hair out because they knew we’d figure out how to reach the middle of America… We’ve lost that.”
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

That is the point, Joe. There should be no such thing as a professional politician.
