Hardball | November 07, 2012
>>> the side show the morning after. the common thread in this lineup of congressmen and women? joe west and alan walsh lost their bid and todd akin lost against claire mccaskill . west has yet to concede. nbc news projects his challenger patrick murphy will come out on top. here's a way they left their mark, including one from "hardball" itself.
>> we need to let president obama , harry reid , nancy pelosi and my dear friend, the chairman of the democratic national committee , take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the intentrepreneurial will of the american people take it somewhere else, to the bottom of the sea, to the north pole , but get the hell out of the united states of america .
>> first of all from what i understand from doctors it's really rare. fitz a legitimate rape, a female body has a way to shut that thing down.
>> don't blame banks and the america place for the mess we're in right now. this pisses me off. too many people don't listen.
>> chris , do you support that? hey, chris . chris , chris , chris , chris , krishgs i love it, chris .
>> well, all the same, some side show regulars there who beat their challengers, steve king of iowa and michele bachmann back in the game after being defeated in 2010 . florida democrat alan grayson offered this as the health care solution back in 20 09.
>> if you get sick in america , this is what the republicans want you to do. if you get sick, america , the republican health care plan is this, die quickly. that's right. the republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick.
>> and now to the round-up from the presidential race and some winners and losers. aside from the candidates and winners. well, the winners, guys who analyze preelection polls got it right, including nate silver , like many of his colleagues was 5 5 1 for 51, got them all. women, there will be 20 in the senate now. the u.s. senate . the highest number ever. also, the lgbt community and gay rights advocates generally, two states, maine and maryland, voted in favor of gay marriage yesterday. the measure's still too close to call in washington state , according to nbc news. and president obama 's twitter feed after this post victory tweet made history as the most retweeted photo in history. angry money, those who dropped hundreds of millions of dollars trying to sway the vote toward republican or two-time failed linda mcmahon , dropping almost $100 million this week, overall out of her own pocket over the two attempts she made to be elected to the senate. well, the president wound up losing north carolina where the dnc was held. that was a good place to have a convention. romney lost florida after republicans held their convention in tampa. wow, wrong locations there. karl rove , who had a one-man side show of his own going on last night as he became increasingly clear it did that the president had won.
>> do you believe that ohio has been settled?
>> no, i don't. it may be that barack obama wins the state, but it seems to me that, you know, you got a lot of votes yet to cast. we have another county called delaware, a good suburban republican county north of columbus. they've had 50 dhou votes cast. we've had one instance where something was prematurely called.
>> they said this is not going to be another one of those.
>> maybe not. let the votes begin to show it.
>> seems to be a very early call.
>> i'm just saying in terms of public perception it looks odd for us to be making a call --
>> but you know how the science works. they know the counties and expected outcome -- the --
>> look --
>> the make jup of the remaining --
>> obama folks at headquarters in chicago, they're not listening to karl.
>> he won the battle but lost the war. second terms are difficult for presidents.
>> a rough night for mr.
