Pelosi: Gay marriage more important than elections
The Washington Examiner ^ | May 10, 2012 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 05/10/2012 1:35:27 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., indicated that President Obama's support for gay marriage is worth any electoral reversals that Democratic Party might sustain as a result.

"The statement that the president made was something that was the right thing to do for the country; it filled my heart with joy," Pelosi told reporters today. "We come here to do a job for the American people, not to hold a job . . . It's more important than any political consequences."

“House Minority Nutbag Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., indicated that President Obama’s support for gay marriage is worth any electoral reversals that Democratic Party might sustain as a result.”

I can live with that. O’s “support” does not make it legal anywhere and since you are expecting major defeats for it, then I thank the moron-in-chief for making 2012 a cakewalk.

To the media and the entertainment industry, it is the number one issue...it’s probably the main reason most celebrities are libs.....good luck getting work if you go against the Party Line on homosexuals.

They are going to try to spin the meme that it was Obama support for homosexuality that tanked his re-election when actually it’s his dismal economy and foreign policy.

Exactly. 4 years of these policies is ample evidence to junk them.

Can’t let that happen.

It’s like when Jocelyn Elders was canned. The meme was that she was fired over her talk of taking sex positive teaching to kids and encouraging them to masturbate.

In reality it was because she supported rationing health care and said something along the lines, “Those old people are just gonna die anyway. It’s the kids that’ll be paying my Social Security.”

That’s because most voters aren’t aware of where the real fight is.

The left is hellbent (pun intended) on destroying the nuclear family. Every policy that the support, in some way is detrimental to the nuclear family.

Indeed, gay “marriage” IS more important than elections to them, because it is a severe blow to the concept of family.

Watch for Holy Loe to be kicked off the ticket next week for pushing the "president" into a situation that is NOT advantageous for his prospects at being our ruler again for another 4. Sorry, poorly constructed sentence but I am so happy Biden kicked Zero out of the foxhole.

Next week's big election issue will be male breastfeeding of children after 3 years oold.

The fact is you have two candidates. Obama and Romney.

If Freepers are doing everything in their power to make sure Romney loses, than the flip side to that is that Freepers are helping Obama win another turn.

I am not bashing Freepers I am just simply pointing out a logical fact. You can’t have it both ways and trash Romney worse than even the lib sites do, and at the same time claim it’s ok because you dont like Obama either.

There is going to be one winner and one loser. Thats just a fact, and if Freepers are doing everything in their power to make sure Romney is the loser than that means Obama will be the winner.

My suspicion is that yes, the nose clothespins will carry the day after all the sturm und drang online. And by that point we will see Mitt Romney talking as though he were Ronald Reagan.

you took the words out of my mouth. I know she isn't to be taken seriously as a catholic, christian or human being, but I am surprised the church themselves aren't admonishing her for her anti christian views.

Do they still ex-communicate members in the catholic church or is it like when someone is guilty of treason here John Kerry, Barrack Obama, Eric Holder, and everyone just looks the other way.
