Mike Huckabee Goes After Obama's 'Christian Convictions', Views on Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Ingraham_huckabee

As we reported earlier this week, Mike Huckabee is already back in Iowa banging his drum about marriage, and yesterday he brought his campaign to Laura Ingraham.

The hilarious part: Huckabee still seems to think he's running against Obama, and also still thinks marriage is going to be an issue.

Said Huckabee to Ingraham:

"The position that I hold is the position that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden held in 2008. Barack Obama held it until 2012. And the question now that I'd love to pose to the President is this, 'Mr. President, please explain that when you said in 2008 at the Saddleback Church Forum that you stood for traditional marriage and you did so because you were a Christian and because it's what the Bible taught, please answer. Were you lying then, or are you lying now? Or did the Bible get rewritten. I'm just wanting somebody in the press to answer that honest question....He said it was because of his Christian convictions. Does he have them or does he not?"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Rand Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll with 31 Percent of Vote

Paul

Rand Paul won the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference presidential straw poll, the WaPo reports:

Paul won 31 percent of the vote (compared with the 25 percent he won last year), beating a crowded field of more than two dozen names, including a number of potential 2016 GOP presidential contenders. He crushed second-place finisher Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), who came in with 11 percent.

Rounding out of the top finishers in the poll, which was voted on by 2,459 CPAC attendees, were former neurosurgen Ben Carson (9 percent) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (8 percent).

Paul's father Ron and Mitt Romney have been the top picks in the CPAC straw polls since 2007.


Rick Santorum and Stephen Colbert Froth Over Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Rick_santorum_colbert

Stephen Colbert welcomed Rick Santorum on The Colbert Report last night to discuss the 2016 presidential election, Santorum's new film The Christmas Candle, and the meaning of marriage.

"We're losing this one, aren't we?" Colbert asks.

Santorum_colbert"Marriage has slipped away from us," says Santorum. "Marriage has devolved into just a romantic relationship between two people, and that's not what marriage is."

"It's for transferring property," Colbert adds.

"But marriage is more than that, and heterosexuals have lost the definition of marriage so it's not surprising that other people want to see 'well this is all marriage is today, and so we should be involved in that'. The better debate is to talk about what marriage is and try to reclaim the institution as a man and a woman coming together to have children and raise them in a way that continues society."

Asks Colbert: "What if we just say...gays you can have marriage. Because at this point marriage is something that seems kind of gay!"

Santorum then froths on about children needing a mother and a father, and chooses not to respond to this barb from Colbert:

"What if they have mother and no father? Wouldn't it be better for them to have no parents than to be loved by two gay people?"

Maddow

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.

California GOP Convention Buttons Mock Hillary Clinton: '2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts, Left Wing'

Hillary

Some disgusting buttons were photographed by San Francisco Chronicle reporter Carla Marinucci on display at the California GOP Convention.

The buttons read: "KFC Hillary Special: 2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts ... Left Wing'.

Marinucci later tweeted that the buttons were displayed outside a VIP reception. And then later wrote that "Less than hour after we 1st tweeted, appears offensive #Hillary buttons gone from #cagop. Many here also appalled..."

Bryan Fischer: Hillary Clinton Won't Win In 2016 Because She'll Be A 'Saggy Old Woman' - VIDEO

Bryan Fischer

For Towleroad readers, the AFA's Bryan Fischer is the homophobic gift that keeps on giving. Any time there's a controversy surrounding gay people...be it human rights violations in Russia, homophobic politicians, or futile attempts to revive anti-gay laws, we can always count on Fischer to spew ignorant and hateful vitriol. 

But we'd like you all to know that Fischer is more than just a homophobe. He's also a vocal and blatant misogynist. His most recent brush with sexism came earlier this week on his radio show, where he dismissed the possibility of a Hillary Clinton presidency simply because of what she might look like in three years:

"She's just going to be too old, going to be too saggy, gravity will have done too much of its mojo on her; she's just going to look old and tired next to virtually anybody that the Republicans run out there."

We're not exactly sure what's most problematic about his so-called "logic". Maybe it's the fact that Fischer doesn't seem at all concerned with his own sagginess...

Judge his comments for yourself, thanks to Right Wing Watch ... AFTER THE JUMP...
