'You're Diving Deeply into the Obama Tank'

As Mark Finkelstein of Newsbusters writes, “Welcoming Chris Christie onto the set of Morning Joe today, Joe Scarborough warned Mika Brzezinski that the New Jersey governor “has come to straighten you out:”

Christie was good to Scarborough’s word, bluntly telling Mika, among other things, that “you’re diving deeply into the Obama tank.”

Click over to Newsbusters for the video; here’s a partial transcript:

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: And joining the table, Republican governor from New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: He has come to straighten you out.

BRZEZINSKI: Oh, I don’t think so.

CHRIS CHRISTIE: The time has come.

SCARBOROUGH:  Thank God.  I have been here alone. I have been surrounded. I’ve been surrounded.  Thank you for your texts. You’re right: everybody but Mr. Soros.

CHRISTIE: Everybody but Soros come to analyze the Republican field.

SCARBOROUGH: I mean, I’m alone!

CHRISTIE: I mean, you’re veering.

BRZEZINSKI: What?!

CHRISTIE: Here’s what’s happening. You’re veering. You used to be a voice of reason.  You played it both ways.  Now, you’re diving deeply into the Obama tank.

No, I’d say the show as a whole has pretty much hit the bottom, unless this practice has officially been announced as having concluded:
