Joe Scarborough says that President Obama needs to get over his "self-pity"
by Nathan'ette Burdine: July 13, 2014

Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” said that President Obama needs to get over the "self-pity" and start governing.

On Friday, Scarborough told the “Morning Joe” panel that former President Bill Clinton was treated far worse than President Obama has been treated, but that former President Clinton found a way to work with Republicans.

Scarborough told the panel, “I think the way forward for the president is to drop the self-pity. You know, around the White House they thought for six and a half years that they were the first White House to ever be attacked like this…I will still say, ‘You can look back day in and day out at what Republicans did to Bill Clinton over his first six and a half years, and even before impeachment we were harsher on Bill Clinton in our tone, in our rhetoric, in the actions we took in the government reform and oversight committee…’This president has not gotten half of what Bill Clinton got and what we gave him for six and a half years, and yet Bill Clinton figured out a way to pummel us with a larger Republican majority and more Republicans in Washington D.C."
