Joe Scarborough: Mitt Romney Made Herman Cain Look Like An Idiot

On Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough strongly lauded Mitt Romney’s debate performance at last night’s GOP debate. “I’ve got to admit, Mitt Romney completely deboned Herman Cain’s 9-9-9, made him look like an idiot,” Scarborough gushed. “And there’s no doubt he got Newt to admit he supported an individual mandate.”

“It was incredible, he did really good,” co-host Mika Brzezinski enthused.

Scarborough said he wouldn’t go that far, but still complemented the former Massachusetts governor. “I wouldn’t say it was incredible, but I will say he showed some focus.”

“I think it showed competency and most of the people on that stage are not confident debaters,” explained Scarborough.

“I think he proved that,” Brzezinski added.

Former RNC chief Michael Steele also agreed with Scarborough’s glowing assessment of Romney’s debate performance.

‘”I think he showed why he has been the frontrunner for sometime,” said Steele. “He understands how this debate process works and he managed it very well. You know, I guess he figured at some point they’re going to gang up on me and he figured right last night and batted it back every time. And that’s something that will begin to resonate with folks. His numbers may not move a whole lot, but for Mitt Romney right now, that’s not the key ingredient. The key ingredient is to stay slow and steady until January 3rd.”
