Hardball | November 30, 2012
>>> back to "hardball." now to the "sideshow." first, after president obama and mitt romney got together for their post election lunch yesterday, jon stewart reflected on the event with help from the '80s movie "coming to america."
>> the event was actually closed to cameras but we have some footage of governor romney arriving to the white house . i believe that's him there, and then he's getting out, and then then -- the campaign is over so he doesn't have to pretend anymore. he can finally wear that serengeti lion sash he hadn't been wearing.
>>> also we've heard from republicans who are ditching grover norquist but how with one of them free himself without admitting he was backpedaling. from chris gibson , representative gibson signed the pledge as a candidate in 2010 for the 20th congressional district . regarding the pledge moving forward, congressman gibson doesn't plan to resign it for the 19thhe now represents. well, as msnbc's joy reid said yesterday, that's like breaking up with someone by changing your phone number.
>>> also, tonight the apps weigh in. during the campaign the smartphone super pac app provided fact checking information and let viewers rate political ads. which ad came out on top? for the democratic governor's association think obama care pants on fire and yosemite sam . here it is.
>> not going to be a part of again socializing health care in the state of texas .
>> the ipb, what that is will be a board that will tell you, bob, whether your level of productivity is worthy of receiving the rationed care that will be the result of obama care.
>> anyway, the ad that got the most votes in the fail category was the one called join for fight to repeal obama care from conservative super pac restore america's voice.
>>> finally this week in conspiracy world, it's texas congressman louie gohmert , and this sugar plum about how the obama administration is in cahoots with the muslim brotherhood . here he is in a radio interview with neocon frank gaffney .
>> i think it almost makes a prima facie case when you look at the decisions made by this administration over the last couple of years or actually all four years, but you look at the decisions its made especially in the last two years in going through the revolutions in northern africa and across the middle east and to the far east , and the only way you could explain the horrendous decisions that were so completely wrong headed would be if this administration had a bunch of muslim brotherhood members giving them advice.
>> he represents 600,000 people. unbelievable. gohmert was among the gang of republicans who suggested earlier this year that one of secretary of state clinton's closest aides was a mole for the muslim brotherhood . why not?
>>> is the problem with the republican party the megsssenger or the message. this is going to be great. i love the conversation. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. [
