A conservative is not a man who calls tax cuts that George Bush passed that would revive the economy, "tax cuts for the rich." That is not a conservative.

But don't worry, it's not going to come to my desk." That is not a conservative. A conservative is not a man who says that he wants to increase taxes 50 cents per gallon on the American people, trying to push through a bill that the rest of the world won't join onto. That is not a conservative. I could go on forever and ever.On another show, Scarborough expressed his incredulity that McCain had sent out campaign mailers attacking Mitt Romney for not supporting Bush's tax cuts early enough - yet McCain voted against those very tax cuts and said he was "proud" to vote against them! Scarborough said "it smells like dirty politics and dirty campaigning. Which John McCain complained about in 2000."
