Hardball | December 05, 2012
>>> let me finish tonight with this. remember the ghost of christmas yet to come in a christmas carol ? he's the scary one, the ghost that comes last. well, he shows up and he's a scrooge at the end, a cold, lonely miserable future in which his greed and future is taking him. president obama has to be the ghost of christmas yet to come. he has to show the republicans in the house how horrible it will be to be them come the first days of january if they don't change their path. he has to show them how disrupted the world will be, how they will look in that world if they hold true to a tight and jealous protection of wealth. the reason the president wants to be the ghost of christmas yet to come is stark. unless he shows them the future now, we will be in that future. we will be together. this country of ours ? over the express precipice. we will still be a great country that can no longer be relied upon to act great. i really don't want to be there. either america wins or it loses. heading off the cliff is losing and we need a persuasive frightening message for the president to see they take it. we don't need a smile from this president or an inspiring speech. we need cold awesome words of warning. we need the president to scare the dick ens out of those people. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now.
