Bush Child, in a Break, Endorses Gay Marriage

Bush Child, in a Break, Endorses Gay Marriage By MICHAEL BARBARO

The Bush dynasty is no stranger to generational conflict: father and son differed over deposing Saddam Hussein, raising taxes and the role of the United Nations.

Barbara Bush in her video statement.

Now it is father and daughter who find themselves at odds over a weighty issue.

Barbara Bush, one of the twin daughters of George W. Bush, will endorse same-sex marriage on Tuesday, publicly breaking ranks with a father who, as president, pushed for a constitutional amendment banning such unions.

Ms. Bush, 29, has taped a video calling on New York to legalize gay marriage. A bill to do that was defeated in the state in 2009. She describes the issue as a matter of conscience and equality.

Irrelevant. Just like Bristol Palin and Megan McCain and Chelsea Clinton and Caroline Kennedy and the Reagan kid.

Liberals always love to deride those Presidents who have children who don’t see issues the same as their parents...take President Reagan as the big #1 example with his son, Ron jr a huge disappointment to all conservatives with his recent book. Atleast his dad isn’t alive to be beyond embarrassed.

From “drunken brat” to darling of the liberal “media”. She’s come a long way baby. The commie libs love you to death when you say what they want to hear. To me, watching two men get “married” is like watching some kind of weird, freak show on Spike TV.

>> publicly breaking ranks with a father

Dubya’s entire family broke ranks with the man.

The Bush family is quite Liberal save Dubya’s notable efforts on behalf of Conservatism.

Will she also be endorsing underage drinking? I remember how Bush's tenure was ushered in with illegal partying.

Bush women...lazy, not very bright, letting Manuela pick up the dog poop, make their beds, raise their children, then preaching open borders...

Enough with the Bushes. Especially the shiftless Bush women.

So Barbara Bush Jr thinks it is ok to deny children either a mother or a father? That’s great! No need for kids to have a mother and a father, right? Barbara Bush Jr needs to move to the inner city and find out how well it worked there with no dads around.......

This is important! Important as, uh, important as, well.... I’m not sure but it is important! Someone that exists because someone that was once president at some point impregnated another person! And the resulting person that was born said something IMPORTANT!

This is BIG! BIG! BIG! What will she say next? Will she have breakfast in the morning? What kind of toilet paper does she use? Floss? Does she floss? We need for her to tell us because it is IMPORTANT!

She probably figures that if they pass a same-sex marriage law, she can marry Megan McCain, and they can start their own show.

Aaargh.

I’m not surprised. There are a lot of kids in that age group who look at the issue as a ‘fairness’ type issue. They haven’t seen the change in society over the last 40 years, because they weren’t paying attention. All they know is that folks shouldn’t make other folks feel bad; it’s a mantra of that generation.

Not shocking. I was reminded of all the things I hated about her father when I saw him on C-SPAN with the bullshit canard about illegals “doing the jobs Americans won’t do”, calling us who want to secure the border “xenophobes”, and justifying the tends of billions of our taxes he gave to African dictators under the guise of “helping those with HIV”. RINOs RINOs RINOs. That’s all the Bushes are. We should pass a new constitutional amendment: No more Bushes - or Clintons can ever run for President. Ever.

No it is not...unless she can explain how two people of the same sex can be joined as husband and wife, she has no valid argument. It is not a matter of equality, but of reality. A man cannot be a wife, and a woman cannot be a husband. That has nothing to do with discrimination, hate, bigotry, etc...it's just reality. Why is that so difficult to understand?
