There is nothing to be gained by giving into the perverts.
I’d say that Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer are trying to bait us.
It is a symptom of their retreat on nearly every issue. There should be no surprise that they abandoned the social issues first, the ones that since 90s they have only paid lip service to.
It’s time to frog march the wanking Republicrats out of the Congress and back onto their lilly pads!
I’ve had enough of this limp-wristed weenies!
Call in a third party: let’s call it the Tea Party!
Disappointing, especially since the Reagan Coalition was built at least in part on appeal to social conservatives in both parties.
Too bad we can’t see that, or nominate a candidate who will stand up for basic values.
The Gay Old Party has abandoned the Ten Commandments, God and Jesus Christ!
Apparently the phony Lincoln Log Republicans have their logs up somebody’s backside.
I don’t really see the big deal.
It’s a natural shift due to a change in times. When times were good, we were able to argue about social things.
But, for the past couple years, times have not been good. It would be foolish to run an election on social issues when people can’t put food on the table.
I do not think this means the GOP is for gay marriage now. But, now is not the time to have a life or death battle on the matter UNLESS it is thrusted upon us by the left through a national attempt at a law etc.

Now, as Bawney prepares to penetrate Hot Bottom (or whomever or whatever the perversion of the week may be) and call it “marriage,” the Romney leaning GOP is eager to send them a “wedding” present by caving. Hi ho and the household pets, farm animals and space aliens are NEXT!!! I would kvetch about Sodom and Gommorrah but even those towns had SOME standards.
Our current platform reads:
“Preserving Traditional Marriage
Because our childrens future is best preserved within the traditional understanding of marriage, we call for a constitutional amendment that fully protects marriage as a union of a man and a woman, so that judges cannot make other arrangements equivalent to it. In the absence of a national amendment, we support the right of the people of the various states to affirm traditional marriage through state initiatives.
Republicans recognize the importance of having in the home a father and a mother who are married. The two-parent family still provides the best environment of stability, discipline, responsibility, and character. Children in homes without fathers are more likely to commit a crime, drop out of school, become violent, become teen parents, use illegal drugs, become mired in poverty, or have emotional or behavioral problems. We support the courageous efforts of single-parent families to provide a stable home for their children. Children are our nations most precious resource. We also salute and support the efforts of foster and adoptive families.
Republicans have been at the forefront of protecting traditional marriage laws, both in the states and in Congress. A Republican Congress enacted the Defense of Marriage Act, affirming the right of states not to recognize same-sex marriages licensed in other states. Unbelievably, the Democratic Party has now pledged to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which would subject every state to the redefinition of marriage by a judge without ever allowing the people to vote on the matter. We also urge Congress to use its Article III, Section 2 power to prevent activist federal judges from imposing upon the rest of the nation the judicial activism in Massachusetts and California. We also encourage states to review their marriage and divorce laws in order to strengthen marriage.
As the family is our basic unit of society, we oppose initiatives to erode parental rights. “
This is the 2008 platform, which I think is the latest; I assume we’ll have a new platform in 2012, perhaps at or before the August convention.
GOP nominates Mr Gay marriage himself
Maybe... because it has no business being litigated in the Capitol? Marriage is a state issue, it's always been a state issue and should stay a state issue.
Amending the constitution isn't going to happen in the normal course of things since you'll never get two-thirds of both houses to send it to the states for ratification in this social-political climate.
Unless and until SCOTUS strikes down CA's state constitutional, Prop 8, as federally unconstitutional and/or they rule against DOMA, this issue is dead at the federal level where they have far more pressing matters like runaway deficits, a roadkill recovery and no budget in 1000 days.
Republicans are on a gay marriage retreat?
GeeOpie: What happens now?Scott Toomey: Well, now, uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the Fithcally Conthervative log cabin, taking The Party(tm) by surprise -- not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!GeeOpie: Who leaps out?Scott Toomey: Uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I. Uh, leap out of the log cabin, uh and uh....GeeOpie: Oh....Scott Toomey: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden Rhinocerous -- [twong]ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away! [splat]
THE FACTS (Read 'em and weep RINOs):
Maybe some here HOPE that the GOP will shift left and promote leftist issues such as normalizing homosexual sex. Maybe some here HOPE they can promote a candidate that will ignore the GOP Platform?
It will be interesting to see if and how the RINO's attempt to change the GOP platform to match the Progressive RINO Romney platform. I, and I am sure many, will be watching what they actually do, versus what they say or do not say.
The GOPe can go to hell. Wait they are already there.
