At first blush, this question might seem a no-brainer. Elected to Congress in 1994 from the Florida panhandle as one of Newt's "Contract With America" foot soldiers, the host of MSNBC's Morning Joe labels himself a conservative.
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough explains why the great challenges currently facing the U.S. aren't a result of four years of President Obama or eight years of President George W. Bush, but instead due to a crisis 35 years in the making: stagnating wages and less productivity.
First it was the assault on facts. Then came fact-checker-bashing followed by the vast left-wing poll conspiracy. And now the Republican War on Reality has opened another front: the U.S. Labor Department and its monthly employment statistics.
