There’s still seven days until the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, but according to Joe Scarborough and his “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski, Romney’s campaign is already looking like a lost cause.

In echoing a sentiment he has vocalized over the past few weeks, Scarborough took to Catholic prayer to pronounce the Romney campaign headed for its ultimate demise, after reacting to Tuesday clip of Romney with his running mate Paul Ryan in Vandalia, Ohio.

“Oh sweet Jesus … what do the Catholics say?” Scarborough asked. “‘Holy Mary, mother of God? Pray for our sinners in thy hour of peace.’ I was a Southern Baptist that went to a Catholic high school. It seems to me — except what would happen, it’s the end of ‘Godfather II.’ I’m Fredo on the back of the boat about to get it in the back of my head.”

Scarborough said Romney’s quest for the presidency seems hopeless because the former Massachusetts governor is “a horrible politician.”

“You know, you don’t fix it,” Scarborough said. “Sadly, I said this about Mitt Romney — he’s a great man. He’s a great father. He’s a great husband. He is a great businessman, a great turnaround guy. If I had a business anywhere in the world, I would have him run it. He’s just — he’s a horrible politician. He’s one of the worst. He’s a great guy, I just want to say he’s a great, great guy.”
