Rachel Maddow on How Marriage is Leaving 2016 GOP Presidential Hopefuls in the Dust: VIDEO


In a Tuesday night segment, Rachel Maddow took to task Rubio, Christie, Rand Paul, Scott Walker and every single other Republican who wants to be considered a presidential nominee in 2016 "because they're supposedly a young fresh face who appeals to the kids" - not a single one has broken ranks to support marriage equality.

  1. Did she talk about the probable implosion of ObamaCare by the weekend? That over 50 percent of the country now considers Obama a blatant liar? That 3/4's of those polled thought his "I'm sorry" was political bullsht?

  2. @MIKE

    So, you believe some IT glitches and poor communications management from the current administration will sink a DNC presidential candidate in 2014? Does that make any sense at all?

    What is a "probable implosion of ObamaCare" anyway? Are you predicting the law itself, the ACA, will somehow "go away"?

    Your entire thesis is risible...

  3. Of course, presidential elections in 2016, not 2014!

    Although, the mid-term elections in one year will certainly provide us with a good idea of the nation's political mood.

  4. Xavi, you might want to tune into Obama's press conference today at 1230ish to attempt to stop the hemorrhaging and shut-up the likes of Bill Clinton, Mary Landrieu, and Dianne Fienstein. Who basically have said "Hey, jerk, if you SAID 26 times they could keep their insurance plans if they wanted, then they get to keep their insurance plans if they want to!"

  5. Republicans are dead in the water. Christie's anti-gay position has ended any chance he had for national office.

  6. Let's talk about recent government shutdown that has done ACTUAL damage to the economy.

  7. All these so called hopefuls will fizzle out like Bachmann and Perry. They finally will pick a "moderate" if that still exists.

  8. Mike, the topic is "2016 GOP Presidential hopefuls and Gay Marraige". At leat try to keep your obvious trolling vaguely on point.

  9. @MIKE

    No matter how ineffectual and weak the current administration's damage-control efforts are, no one believes these mishaps will influence the electoral process in 2016...

    Execution is very important, obviously. This administration has executed this law very poorly. Nonetheless, the law has been ratified and its constitutionality has been affirmed by the Supreme Court of the U.S. The ACA is here to stay and the nation will recognize the value this law provides to society.

    The ACA implementation will influence the 2016 presidential election as much as the Benghazi "cover-up", i.e.: no influence at all.

  10. @Mike, I dunno, a lot of people know that most problems that exist when Obama's name is invoked are really just Tea party/gop BS.

  11. Barbara Bush is still saying :"Are these buffoons all we got?"
    "it's been the worst campaign I've ever seen in my life," in 2012. She ain't seen nothing yet.

  12. I hear the Koch brothers are considering paying their trolls at extra nickel for every post that ends up first on a thread on Trollroad. If you're giving your trolling away for free, you're passing up an extra fifty cents or more a day. Fifty cents! With the Koch brothers taking care of you, you'll be rich in no time!

  13. And thank goodness this thread became all about the troll. That doesn't happen enough on Trollroad. It's very refreshing!

  14. The trolls like Mike eat your energy and defecate more lies through their crusty brown mouths. No one's that interested in moving off topic when they click to make a comment on a thread.

  15. "There are none so blind..." Stupidity is their hallmark!!! Yay!!!

  16. Can't wait for the presser! "YOU get ObamaMoney and YOU get ObamaMoney and YOU get ObamaMoney and YOU get ObamaMoney and YOU get....!!!"

  17. Why are we not hearing from insurance companies in response to their decisions to not offer specific coverage post-AFA? Why has this been left to malcontent trolls? Mike, you working within an insurance company PR department?

  18. @MIKE

    You exhibit a complete lack of knowledge regarding the ACA and its workings. You know nothing and it appears you hold a personal disapproval of the current administration and our president. Your bias clouds your ability to evaluate this issue objectively.

    You are a fool

    Posted by: Xavi | Nov 14, 2013 11:53:57 AM

  19. Mike. Why would she talk about any of that? It wasn't the subject of this story.

    Posted by: db | Nov 14, 2013 1:25:49 PM

  20. This POS.
    Notice how we don't have an Affordable Legal Act for lawyers.
    He just can't fathom insurance companies are in business to make a profit and now with all his BS the only people profiting are his govt cronies.
    What a disgraceful fraud. Where's your grades transcript, moron.

  21. Mike is foaming at the mouth, y'all.

    Posted by: Mikey | Nov 14, 2013 3:01:00 PM

  22. I'd like to think that the selfish anti-American GOP members who contributed to the gallingly useless Shutdown would have their actions and inactions come back to haunt them come election time, but I keep seeing, time and time again, that the GOPs base doesn't care about things like facts.
