MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Saturday defended President Barack Obama’s “laughable” opening “fiscal cliff” offer to Republicans, proving once again that she is light on honest political analysis and heavy on the talking points.
“It’s December 1, just one month until the deadline for the so-called ‘fiscal cliff’ and the drama is building,” she began.
She paused for a moment to play a clip of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) referring to the president’s offer as not being a “serious proposal.”
“Mr. Boehner, you’ve got it all wrong,” the MSNBC host said. “It is a serious proposal, really serious, ‘Godfather’ serious.”
