Dick Morris: I Don't Believe the Courts Should 'Jam' Gay Marriage 'Down Anybody's Throat'


Piers Morgan shredded political strategist Dick Morris last night for his disastrous predictions of a Romney landslide, an error for which he has been cast out from FOX News.

Said Morris: "I was wrong. I was wrong at the top of my lungs."

Later, the discussion veered into one about the GOP and its positions on social issues, like abortion and gay marriage.

Said Morris:

"My view on gay marriage is that if a state decides to go for gay marriage, the legislature or the voters, that's great. That's up to them. I've got no problem with it. I don't believe that the courts should jam it down anybody's throat.

As for his personal view? "If people want it they should be able to do it but it's got to be a decision of the community."

  1. Why does it have to be a decision of the community?

  2. funny thing, this could be something he could easily predict, that equality in marriage will happen =-)

    but once again he might be wrong (it might be the courts who decide)...

    JEFFNYC, agree with u, why the community? so a white supremacist community could decide whatever they want then too?

    when something is right, it should be supported by some so all can eventually see it is right...

  3. Haven't watched the clip, but I hope Piers called him out on this as well. What "community" should a gay soldier get approval from when he can be redeployed around the country (or world) at any time. I live and work in Houston for a company headquartered in Illinois, incorporated in Delaware, and am subject to federal tax/immigration/inheritance/etc. policies - which "community" am I supposed to petition for approval to marry and the associated rights & privileges? All of them?

  6. He lost all credibility years ago with his crappy advice, but seems to have made up for it by gaining a ton of weight.

  7. Hmmmm. Who is shoving anything down old Dickie's throat? Not I...

  8. I couldn't understand him. It's not polite to talk with your mouth full. Of toes.

  9. It should only be of the consent of the community to be fat and stupid. So, I think he's broken the law.

  10. This character is an expert on ethics?

  11. Shouldn't he be down in the Dominican Republic with cocaine, viagra and under-aged prostitutes?

  12. What he needs shoved down his throat is a gag. We are sick of hearing you, fool.

  13. This is a man who was so stupid even Fox News didn't want him. Why does anyone listen to him?

  14. Why does the "community" have anything to do with our personal lives? >_<

  15. Gee, I don't think bigots should be able to jam their discrimination down my throat. How about equality under law for everybody, then we can live in peace.

  16. He doesn't want it shoved down his throat but he sure is talking out of his a**.

  17. He gets that he's gay, right?

    Posted by: Steve Sando | Feb 7, 2013 11:22:23 AM

  18. I HATE that he triggers my gaydar. uuuuggh. Repulsive man.

  19. Look, I KNOW he's straight, because of that thing with the prostitute and the toe sucking, but my god, that voice! He sounds like Marcus Bachmann.

  20. Why does anyone care what Morris has to say? He's a political whore and wrong most of the time (he predicted a landslide for Romney LOL). He has no personal or public morals. Why does anyone listen to anything he has to say?

  21. So the courts can't adjudicate injustices--there's no sense of recourse, is that right? Then what are they there for? Sounds like someone is shoving straights down OUR throats.

  22. Oh, and "The GOP has got to change" title....why doesn't it start with throat waddle boy? Stop taking baby steps, be a big boy now.

    Posted by: woodroad34 | Feb 7, 2013 12:18:36 PM

  23. Who's throat is marriage being "jammed down"? No one will be forced to be married. And why should "the community" be able to decide who gets to get married. I'd be happy to sit in judgement on many of the heterosexual couples I've known whose marriages were disasterous for everyone involved including their innocent children.

  24. @HOUNDENTENOR -- AMEN!! It baffles me why ANYONE would want to hear his opinion on anything of substance.

  25. These morons need a dialogue coach, or if they have one, a better one.
