Skip to comments.Former Bush staffer: GOP should be ‘outspoken’ advocate for gay marriage (Guess who?)

Last Thursday, in a sign that the GOP is recalibrating its image after 2012, 100 prominent Republicans (many of whom are no longer serving in office) signed a friend-of-the-court brief seeking to overturn Californias Proposition 8, which effectively banned same-sex marriage in the state shortly after it became legal. The brief states the opinion that marriage is a constitutional right for gay couplesa position that goes beyond even President Obamas stance on marriage equality.
One of the signers, former communications chief for George W. Bush and senior advisor for the McCainPalin campaign Nicolle Wallace, joined Morning Joe Monday morning to share why she supports the GOPs effort for marriage equality.
President Obama also filed a similar brief on Thursday, marking the first time a president has asked the Supreme Court to allow gay couples to marry. Obama stopped short of calling marriage equality a constitutional right....

I have never seen an issue take such a 180 degree turn in a 12 month period. A year ago, this issue was political suicide. No state had every approved gay marriage, and only through court manipulation was it even an issue. NC became yet another state to resoundingly confirm marriage as man and woman, and then days later Obama made the big dither away from his previous position.
Crazy times we live in.
The depraved (GOP) want to embrace the depraved. There’s an easier way. A flying leap off the Golden Gate.
In some ways it reminds me of,the collapse of the USSR when all the republics broke away. It seemed like almost every day there would be one more to,break away and the pace quickened by the day.
I would not be surprised to wake up in the morning and read that Dick Cheney and Clint Eastwood support gay marriage.
It is done! Leave it alone!
Promoting what the Almighty abhors is a serious collision course up ahead. That’s one doomed train we would rather not ride to destination end.
What a dumbass thing to say. Of course she’s a McCain RINO so that is to be expected.
Just wait. They’ll force the boy scouts to have gays, and then a homosexual child rapist/murderer will be caught operating as a scout leader.
Oh, yeah, Nicole Wallace, the hag who torpedoed Sarah Palin in the election of 2008. Is anyone surprised she’s a liberal?
Then, the whole group gets shut down, and the secularists, Christian Haters , gays, and feminNazis finally get their way.
There is no end to these distractions.
When there’s no difference in Democrat and Republican; then what’s the use? Most people will take the real thing over the carbon copy every time. - The government has its finger in EVERYTHING.
The Republican party nominated a man who had run against Ted Kennedy, proclaiming that he was more able to deliver the homosexual agenda than Ted, the man who became the Governor who allowed gay marriage, and who in the 2012 election repeated his support for homosexualizing the military and the Boy Scouts, positions that he had held at least since 1994.
Mitt Romney, and the party’s acceptance of him, has had an effect not only on the GOP but on the nation.
Things that republicans could claim to be just a few years ago, or even one year ago, can’t be claimed today.
Crazy times we live in.
***The end times.
My suggestion is to look through the taglines on each thread to determine the sheep and the goats.
If this gets rid of the GOP then I am for it.
Is that supposed to be sarcasm? Dick Cheney has promoted homosexual causes for many years.
Voting hasn't reflected that. Every time it has been on a ballot it has been defeated...and by a significant margin. Usually at least 60/40. Even California overwhelmingly voted that way, which opened the door to the massive 'H8' campaign that has pretty much led the push toward it since. When it was recast as 'Hate' or bigotry or whatever attack word one wants to use. Courts started getting more activist to provide headlines for that side, etc. It is boilerplate for the left for the past 40-50 years to browbeat the public toward their views. Global warming has seen the same tactics to demean the opposition and belittle them, at the same time using propaganda relentlessly across all news and entertainment. It is effective much of the time.
Not in 2012; it carried in four states.
The Obama voters (low information) came out in large numbers in those blue states.
