MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday gave quite a reaction to the news that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney sang "America the Beautiful" at a rally in central Florida.
"Oh my God," gasped the Morning Joe co-host (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Look yesterday, Mike Barnicle, you've got Mitt Romney singing "America the Beautiful."
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Oh my God!
Oh my God?
Even the perilously liberal Washington Post liked this campaign moment:
On Monday night at a rally here, Romney tried to one-up himself. He actually broke into song, belting out an entire verse of "America the Beautiful." The crowd of a few thousand snowbirds sang along with him.
It was a jubilant end to Romney's Florida campaign.
Yes, the Post said "jubilant."
Far cry from "Oh my God!"
Judge for yourself who's right:
Associate Editor’s note: As you are likely aware, since the financial collapse of 2008, charities and non-profit organizations have seen a sharp reduction in donations. Although the environment has improved, contributions are still nowhere near where they were prior to the recession. Unfortunately, the Media Research Center has not been immune. With this in mind, your support has become more important than ever. With a critical election approaching, the liberal media needs to be monitored 24/7. As we have been predicting for months, the press are willing to do anything to get their beloved politicians elected and/or reelected. As such, we need your help to fight this fight. Any contribution, even $10, is greatly appreciated. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to the Media Research Center to help us battle the liberal media. Thank you.
