Bush: happy for Cheney's gay daughter pregnancy
Reuters ^ | 12/15/06

Posted on 12/16/2006 11:22:33 AM PST by Blackirish

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney's pregnant lesbian daughter Mary will make a "fine mom," President George W. Bush said, sidestepping his past comment that a child ideally would be raised by a mother and father.

Mary Cheney, 37, and her longtime partner, Heather Poe, are expecting their first child, which would be the sixth grandchild for the vice president. Cheney was hired last year as an executive for America Online.

"I think Mary is going to be a loving soul to her child. And I'm happy for her," Bush said in an interview with People magazine.

Sorry, but I can't be happy about deliberately bringing a child into this kind of relationship. It's abnormal and children have enough to deal with in this wacky world!

That this makes them all happy reveal their moral view. I would not be happy if my daughter had an illegitimate child. It is not the best thing for the child according to statistics as well as common sense. But for Mary, it's all about "me."

You're right! It's very selfish to have a chid without thinking about it's welfare. Very sad.

However one feel about George W and his policies....

Personally he's a gentleman with a good heart and this is what I would expect him to say.

Exactly!

I wonder if the baby will ever know his/her father. One thing is for sure, the baby will never be able to get truthful instruction in morality. How sad. In fact, he/she will be raised to defend what is an abomination to God. How very VERY sad! The role models for the child will be immoral, so as the child role plays, as children always do, the tot will pretend to be a homosexual. Again, how sad and tragic.

I would take a bastard child over lesbian mothers, any day.

I would take any child over an abortion, too.

This is another case of Republican leadership morphing into Democrat leadership. Just like Animal Farm, I cannot tell one from another anymore.

I don't condone homosexuality, but when is the last time anybody saw an article apparently intended only to remind the reader that Rosie O'Donnell or Katie Couric is a lesbian? I won't talk about Hillary Clinton in this post because I don't want the moderator to remove it.

Seems like some Freepers here would ram a pitch fork into Mary's gut and toss here into the fires of hell for her evil act of having a child.

What in gods name do you expect the president to say? The times they are a changing and polite society will have to adapt. Sorry folks.

It's all about class and social status isn't it? Would you feel the same way if it was a pair of lower middle class lesbians raising a kid that goes to an inner city public school where his/her classmates teased him/her that his/her parents were carpetmunching queers and that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree?

But George W is the Commander in Chief, and we all tune our instruments to his pitch pipe. If he says this is GOOD, then it must be good for everyone, and we can shuck Holy Matrimony and just have babies with anyone, however, and forget about Original Design, Proven Universal laws.....

Hah, whatever. Ready or not, god or not, Armageddon seems to be brewing and we're suppose to smile and be happy for the vicepresident's dike daughter getting pregnant. Look 35 years in the future and do you believe that if this country continues down the path it is going that that hunded or so million dollars will be able to buy a happy meal at the newly Chinese owned McD's?

NOBODY here hates or blames the baby. The baby is innocent.

What we despise is this high profile lesbian allowing herself and her situation to be used by gay activists and the media to further an agenda that will, given enough time, KILL THIS NATION.

I despise what Mary Cheney has done, but I also understand that the President has a duty to be the leader of all the American people. In this instance, such a duty may have publicly "tied his tongue." Given the problems that other Presidential and Vice Presidential children and siblings have had, including those of his own young adult years, Neil Bush, and the son and daughter of Jeb Bush, it is difficult to be harsh publicly within the "family." To my knowledge, you would have to go back to Eisenhower to find a President and a Presidential family that was scandal free. And even he reportedly had an affair with Kay Summersby, his British secretary, during World War II.

Mary Cheney, 37, and the unidentified father her longtime partner, Heather Poe, are expecting their first child

A clear error in the reporting, I thought I would correct it.

Ps you forgot the BARF allert in this post.

Where's the "common sense" in lesbian marriage and artificially induced lesbian parenthood?

This is conservative moral relativism.

Angry that Jesus didn't yell at the woman at the well and throw her down the well? That he allowed the woman of questionable repute to wash his feet? That he told the parable of the prodigal son being welcomed by his father? That he didn't have the adulterous woman stoned?

Was he a moral relativist, too?

There is a difference between making the best of an imperfect situation/being civil and endorsing/promoting.

Jesus told the prostitute to go and sin no more. Mary Cheney is going to be raising a child in a sinful relationship.

President Bush need not have been negative - a no comment would have been the dignified response - unless of course, he approves and the situation does make him happy.

Bush could have very easily said "I am not going to comment on the personal life of Mary Cheney. I respect her privacy", and leave it at that. It is very disappointing that he chose ebullient praise of a homosexual artificial procreation, but certainly not surprising given his increasing wishy-washiness.
