There are many things covered in the interview, including Romney’s reaction to Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention, Ann Romney’s defense of her husband’s business practices and their wealth, and, perhaps most interestingly, his discussion of how his Mormon faith influenced his choice to run for office and leave his business career behind.

Top Republican Strategist Denies Women Are Paid Less Than Men
This morning, during a heated discussion with Rachel Maddow on Meet The Press, GOP consultant Alex Castellanos denied that women make 77 cents for a man’s dollar in the workplace and noted, “there are lots of reasons for that.” Maddow expressed shock at the assertion, but concluded that it explained why Republicans and Mitt Romney are so hesitant to embrace the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, a law that helps women hold accountable employers who discriminate in the pay practices based on gender.
“Now we know, at least from both of your perspectives,” Maddow said, pointing to Castellanos and Romney surrogate Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), “women are not fairing worse than men in the economy that women aren’t getting paid less for equal work.” “It’s about policy and whether or not you want to fix some of the structural discrimination that women really do face that Republicans don’t believe is happening,” she added. Castellanos responded to Maddow’s policy argument by remarking on her passion, to which the MSNBC host took offense:
CASTELLANOS: It is about policy and I love how passionate you are. I wish you were as right about what you’re saying as you are passionate about it. I really do.
MADDOW: That’s really condescending. This is a stylistic issue. My passion on this issue is actually me making a factual argument on it.

After Backing Anti-Birth Control Blunt Amendment, McCain Now Says GOP Needs To ‘Get Off’ War On Women
GREGORY: Are you concerned at all to see the focus, with certain elements of the Republican Party, on social issues? In your own state of Arizona, there’s this contraception bill that even the governor has said would put women in the uncomfortable position where they had to say to their employers why they wanted contraception, and why it should be covered — is that a bad road?
McCAIN: I am confident that that legislation will not reach the governor’s desk and if it did it would be vetoed. . . . It certainly does not reflect, in my view, the majority view of the people of Arizona.
GREGORY: Do you think that there is something of a war on women among Republicans?
McCAIN: I think we have to fix that. I think that there is a perception out there because of how this whole contraception issue played out — ah, we need to get off of that issue, in my view. I think we ought to respect the right of women to make choices in their lives and make that clear, and get back onto what the American people really care about.

Former presidential candidate and Mitt Romney supporter John McCain (R-AZ) expressed Sunday morning his fatigue over the number of debates in this Republican nomination cycle.
“We’ve got to stop the debates,” McCain told Meet The Press‘ David Gregory. “Enough with the debates, because they are driving up our candidates’, all of them, unfavorability. We have enough of that. They’ve turned into mud wrestling instead of an exposition of all our candidates views. And it’s time to recognize who the real adversary is, and it’s not each other.”
There have been a total of 19 GOP presidential debates this campaign season so far.

Conservative MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said on Sunday that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s thumping of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in South Carolina Saturday showed that the Republican base was “revolting” against the party establishment.
During a round table discussion on NBC’s Meet the Press, Chuck Todd explained that Gingrich’s win was “about Mitt Romney.”
“He hasn’t made the sale to conservatives,” Todd observed. “And losing in South Carolina, he can’t dismiss it. This is the heart and soul of the conservative movement, the folks that show up at telephones, that knock on the doors — and he doesn’t have their support.”
“There’s no doubt about it,” Scarborough agreed. “The party base is revolting, but they are revolting against the Washington Republican establishment anointing Mitt Romney.”
“Just like Herman Cain was not about Herman Cain. It was a rejection of Mitt Romney. Rick Perry, a rejection of Mitt Romney. Michele Bachmann, a rejection of Mitt Romney. Newt Gingrich wave one, a rejection of Mitt Romney. Now we have Newt Gingrich wave two, a rejection of Mitt Romney.”
Scarborough continued: “Mitt Romney could attack Newt for not being a conservative because Newt is not a conservative. Google it! We [Republicans] ran him out of Congress in 1998 because he sold us out on taxes, he sold us out on spending, he went to the floor and he sided with Democrats on his last speech, calling us the perfectionists caucus. He called us jihadists. He’s not a conservative, he’s an opportunist. But here is the problem: So is Mitt Romney.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has “embarrassed” the Republican Party, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney never has.
Following Romney’s devastating loss to Gingrich in the South Carolina Republican presidential primary, Christie told NBC’s David Gregory that the former speaker just didn’t have the experience needed to be president.
“I think Newt Gingrich has embarrassed the party over time,” Christie explained. “Whether he’ll do it again in the future, I don’t know. But Gov. Romney never has.”
“We all know the record,” the New Jersey governor continued. “He was run out of the speakership by his own party. He was fined $300,000 for ethic violations. This is a guy who’s had a very difficult political career at times and has been an embarrassment to the party.”
“But do you think a candidate, a nominee Gingrich, could also beat President [Barack] Obama?” Gregory asked.
“Sure,” Christie replied.

On March 28,1965, Martin Luther King Jr. appeared on Meet The Press. This was one week after the five day march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to demonstrate against police brutality and conditions in Alabama as well as voting rights. In this interview Dr. King's courage, wisdom and strength of character shine like a beacon in a dark place. As you listen to the questions as well, to me at times it seemed more like an inquisition than a news program (especially the question about communism) but remembering the times it certainly wasn't surprising. And actually, the question in the beginning sounded like the same criticism of the Occupy movement. I guess times haven't changed that much after all. So as we celebrate his birth today it is only fitting to remember the legacy he left us and there is no better way to remember that than with his own words.On March 28,1965, Martin Luther King Jr. appeared on Meet The Press.

Attorney General during defining times.
A word or two about the economy in 1949.
She claims that Americans don't care if their gay brother or sister can't have families or serve in the military. She says America isn't concerned. I think she is wrong. Americans do care. She is asked specific questions and doesn't have answers. She clearly doesn't know why she believes what she believes.
Bachmann stutters through this interview. What about gay employees, cousins, sisters, brothers, soldiers, court personnel, and others who are gay? Her views are clear because she surrounds herself with people who agree with her. That is not a good idea especially if you are wrong and your peers are afraid to have a different opinion than yours.She claims that Americans don't care if their gay brother or sister can't... more
