I LOVE this! Thank you, guys
Great rebuttal, Rachel. I really enjoyed the show tonight. Guys like Rubio are like gold to liberals and Democrats. Keep them coming!
Yes. But all that gold will surely be worth nothing in November.
Have you ever held a nugget of gold, or a flake of gold? It is not like what you get at the jewelry store. It has to be polished to perfection before it can be put on the market. It takes time.....November is still a few months away.
Yes, but do they know this,(Rachel does her brilliant Dick Dasterdly mustache swipe), if they don't, are we going to tell them...?
And you NEVER told us whether Koch's Jefferson wine bottles were pre-1945. ARGHHHH! Arlene Manemann
Why would Washington change the Laws to enable and encourage American Corporations and Businesses to move to Asia and other Nations - removing American Jobs , Tax Revenues at Federal_State_Local levels, crippling our Economy and removing the Historically key ingredient necessary to pull America out of Recession:
Manufacturing Jobs based in The United States.
Did Clinton have it written that any and all overseas sales by American Business Manufacturing there would be Sales Taxed and those Sales Taxes be Repatriated back to The United States?
What did The Nation get for this 'Trade Agreement' ?
The destruction of American Consumerism as jobs here at home fuel the Nations Consumer based Economy.
Clinton and his Senate knowingly set up the Nations Economy for later destruction that we are now witnessing.
Giving the Corporations more Tax relief is not in our best interest.Giving Tax relief is just the same as giving away money - no difference.
workers here in the United States and replace them with Green Card workersholding advanced degrees - the American workers are forced to train theirreplacements in order to have a clean 'Lay Off' record as to be eligiblefor Unemployment Benefits.
This is what American Corporates are doing for America .. and you want to give them more Tax Breaks?
Corporate America needs to have their Overseas Sales Taxed and thoseTaxes repatriated to the United States to make up for the loss ofJobs_Federal_State_Local Revenues our Government is trying tocover due to NAFTA and the changes to the FTA and GATT Laws.
These 'changes' are not written into stone and must be revisited.
For the time NAFTA has been in effect - that's plenty of Corporate subsidizing_Corporate Welfare in my book.. enough is enough ..it has effectively sounded the Death Knell for our American Consumer basedEconomy.
These people do not give a damn about the Nation .. they see America asa base of Operations.
CEO of Microsoft Steve Ballmer a few months ago threatened the White House withsending huge amounts of jobs Offshore should Obama bring up Repatriation of Sales Taxes to be levied against American Corporate Overseas Sales.
This son of a b_tch stated he would Organize American Corporations to send their jobs out of America to counter any Repatriation on overseas sales.
Benedict Arnold syndrome prevalent in Corporate thinking .. I'm not for pandering to these wise guys.
Your post is so ate up with inconsistences, that I wonder whose side you're on. I don't have to agree with all that you post. I will defend to the death your right to say all and or anything you have to say, but please, you made my nose bleed.
Maybe he/she didn't express their point of view as succinctly or clearly as possible, but I have to agree with them, primarily because I have been saying the same thing for quite some time. This country is controlled by corporations and the ultrarich associated with them, and they have just one goal: to make as much money as possible, ethically and legally or not, and they could care less about this nation or its citizens.
Bravo, Tourville. It's good to see that more and more people are waking up to the fact that the biggest threat to this country isn't islamic terrorists, or an Iranian nuke, or other bogeymen from overseas. The biggest threat is the unbridled greed of multinational corporations that have ruined our economy for their own selfish gains and shipped our jobs overseas. It was a slow-motion, behind the scenes Pearl Harbor or 9-11, and the results have been far more devastating then either of those tragedies.
The Profits American Corporations make from Overseas Sales do not come back to the United States Banking .. they go to Offshore Banking.
Clever, witty, factual. Hilarious! Rubio's trying to raise money with his ad? Where do I send the check to get airtime for the rebuttal?
You know you've made now! Was it Brown before, now Rubio?
Rachel...Loved the Rubio ad rebuttal! Keep up the good work.
This ad is hilarious! Finally - someone outside of FL realizes how crazy Rubio is! Woudn't it be scary to have him for a US Senator?
Yea, but the crazies are out there.
So is it a good conservative deficit or is it a bad Centralist deficit caused by a bad conservative deficit? Or is it just another example of welfare for the wealthy gone wild which Rubio can't understand why people are so upset about?
How did the conservative Republicans get caught with their pants down when Larry Craig was always so careful to close the door to the stall? It's not easy covering your ass when your irresponsibility has been expose to the world. People tend to think you are lying...about everything.
Rubio thinks Rachel is such a jerk for pointing out the obvious? Off with her head.
And so they said of Joan of Arc, now we know how wrong they were.
I love the music...not sure what era it comes from but it's like Rubio, not from now.
Rachel, I loved the Rubio segment and noticed a posting here about him being like gold to Democrats. I urge caution to my Republican friends when they make that trip to the polls this November because that which appears to be gold often is later found to be "Fools Gold", or is it "A Fools Gold". If Republicans vote for Rubio this November they will probably wake up the next morning wondering if their vote was for "A Fools Gold". There was also a mention of CNN and I wondered, Are they still on the air? LOL. Between Morning Joe, The Ed Show, Hardball, Countdown and TRMS where is there need for any more informative material.
All that glitters is not gold.
As a collector of western memorabilia I find it amusing that Mr. Koch actually believes that he has Custer's rifle, Sitting Bull's weapon, Jesse James's gun and Bob Fords. I've met several folks who also own the 'real' copies of these guns. If it sounds too good to be true...it usually is. Let the buyer beware and in the case of the ultra rich that old adage is even more true. More money than sense is a dangerous thing when collecting and I've known several well known dealers and buyers who have been burned. It looks to me like the Koch cellar also holds other frauds besides wine.
When money is not an option, then value and authenticity become a moot point.
Did I just hear you invoke the 'Hartmann'? (Tag you're it!)
By Thom Law You now Have to have him on your show to ward away any bad spirits that may intrude your set after that invokation. Sort of like saying 'gezundheit' after one has sneezed.
I saw a rare interview between he and Olbermann one time, I found it too short. He tends to get going more after the 3min. mark.
Thanks for all you do Rachel (oop! no 'a')
& do a geeky segment on the 'Space Elevator' - doesn't take much to picture vast achievements we could make with such a tool! Not to mention the doping and patchwork that could be done in the biosphere on it's 'pollution free' way up delivering it's payloads! Whoohooo!
There are competitions every year with giant geek gatherings to achieving a more probable means!
WAIT WAIT WAIT! Did Rachel really note at the end of "her" ad that she's "Not running for anything. Ever."? Really?!!
(first time poster, so glad to've found Rachel (and Keith!)!)
That music is SO catchy. Does anyone know what it's called, or where you can get a copy?
I lol'd. Over, and over, and over again. Shame you won't run for office, Rachel. It'd be nice to have someone who actually knows what she's talking about running things. I do have to concede, though, that "Not Running for Anything. Ever." is a glorious campaign slogan. It's actually very Republican. If nobody ran for any office, ever, then we'd have an awfully small government in our democracy, wouldn't we.
I've fantasized about a Maddow/Olbermann...or an Olbermann/Maddow...ticket for 2016 (since I see Obama going through 2012!)! C'mon, Rachel!!!
I found Rachel through Keith. Not that I think either of them would care, but I've become more and more of a Rachel fan than a Keith fan, although after the Ben Affleck thing on SNL, I have to at least give Keith huge props for his sense of humour about himself. Rachel seems more purely guided by reason, not just than Keith (who is far from irrational), but than people in general. It's an extremely admirable trait in our time. I'd definitely vote for Rachel.
Me too, Jason: I found Rachel through Keith. Actually (dig this!!), my GRANDMA is a huge Keith Olbermann fan, and then one time (and this is some time ago!) she decided to stay up "long enough" to catch Rachel's show, and she became totally hooked on both! Because of my grandma, I started watching Keith and then Rachel, and now I consider myself at a great disadvantage when I'm not able to catch both shows. If I had to choose, I'd watch Rachel even over Keith: Like you said, Rachel is intensely reasonable. Plus, she's hilarious! I have a degree in journalism and might've pursued it if I'd've had a mentor as amazing as Rachel Maddow.
I always try to watch both, and I actually watch Countdown first because it airs earlier, so I feel compelled to see them in order, but if it comes down to it and I only have time for one news video podcast, there's no decision to even make. TRMS hands-down. Well... unless there's a guest host, then I might see if Countdown has Keith or not.
Well that music is going to be stuck in my head for DAYS, thanks guys.
OMG!! Hilarious, Rachel...so funny, I watched it again this morning. I have 2 serious comments:
1. Do explain to the scaremongers and other users of imprecise language that the "budget deficit" and the "national debt" are NOT the same thing. You might use your wonderful wall and non-sticking, double sided tape, again to illustrate the difference and how the one is conquerable and the other...not so much.
2. For the Toms and other ilk who dislike the humorous aspects of Rachel's and Keith's shows: if we can't laugh at ourselves, you @#s, we are certainly lost. The world is full of violence, greed, stupidity, ugliness and fatheaded insistence that we all have to think and believe the same way. For the sake of our sanity and survival, we must retain our senses of humor!
Rachel's version makes more practical sense. Maybe she'll let rubio use it and hope he learn a thing or two about Deficit ...... learn the word first rubio don't just say it :-)
ps: rachel you shouldn't run for anything, ever. the senate need someone on the outside to teach them.
If Rachel was my professor in college, I could have learned ANYTHING!!! Rachel, you are so eloquent, informative, creative and intelligent that you make learning even politics fun! Your show is daily MUST SEE TV! Thank you for all your energy and passion!!!!
Keith needed a vacation. It's obvious that he's still taking his father's death hard. Baseball is an excellent way to help heal the wound. (I still wish we had Division races that meant something going down to the end of the season. The wild card ruins the thrill of the chase.)
Besides, Rachel is more than capable of picking up the slack while Keith's gone. O'Donnell should get a good lead in for his new program which starts this fall. It's going to be a great block of programing for us Eisenhower Progressives to watch...certainly a great alternative from the reality shows being offered on the networks.
