On MSNBC Tuesday morning, "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough justified former Vice President Dick Cheney's quickness to attack the new president. "[Obama] dismantled this program on his second day in there ...I knew by the second day that America was less safe," Scarborough said, "if you believe like I believe and 50% of Americans believe, that this program actually made America safer."
We don't base government policy on what people believe. We base it on evidence. What possible evidence could Scarborough have collected in two days to convince him we were unsafe? None, of course. He's talking out of his ass.
