Yes. People seem to hate telling the truth about certain things to pollsters lest they be perceived as racist or homophobe.
But in the privacy of the voting booth, the truth emerges.
Oh yeah I get the double standard.I just never get tired of pointing it out.
Yeah! Liz Cheney would be perfect. She’s calm, informed, reasonable and very conservative and I adore her.
Biden did exactly as he was instructed. He went on Meet the Press and extolled his love of gay marriage to the world.
It was their way of getting their fundraiser of the week under way. They got to figure out ways to bring up the topic so it don’t look like they’re bringing up the topic.
So they got Steponallofus to mention contraceptive during the presidential debate out of nowhere, anybody think that was a coinkydink?
They got that CNN lesbian babe to lambaste Ann Romney, anybody think that was a coinkydink?
They get Biden to go on TV and bring up the subject then pretend he gaffed, he “forced” Obama into showing his hand. Coinkydink?
This administration makes the media look like idiotic puppets.
At some point everyone reaches a point of getting tired of the mockery.
I wonder when the media will flip the admin using them so easily...the bird.
Great post! I totally agree. all that is necessary to win in Nov. is to point out who we are vs. who they are.
“No wonder I was a Rueben Studdard fan?”
Me too, I wasn’t at all surprised when he won.
OK, so now it's the:
Black Pampers, food stamp, tree hugging, occupy, union thug, baby-killing, big government, packer/muncher...party?
Rock as many issues as you pointed out its only the tip of the iceberg with this guy.
Oh dear Lord we got Chris Matthews on and he’s got Andrew Sullivan sobbing, expressing his joy that Obama now sees him as an equal.
Forgive me folks but this is just....well let’s just say I laff. And THEN, get this, THEN Sullivan says that Obama is LIKE A FATHER FIGURE TO HIM!!
Dear Lord, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, forgive me for my mockery of another human being making a mockery of truth, forgive me, bless me for I have sinned.
They must think we were all born at night, LAST NIGHT.
It isn’t that Paul Ryan is talking about stuff too hard for people to understand. He explains it just fine.
Which is why they DON’T have him on. He’s a likeable guy who makes sense. Can’t have that!
GAY MARRIAGE! BIRTH CONTROL! SQUIRREL! LOOK OVER THERE!
It really is like they are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
I gag every time I hear some pundit say Biden forced Obama’s hand on gay marriage. Since when do a Pres. and VP have to agree on every single issue? After all this wasn’t some pending or proposed legislation; just an opinion. They set this up so the gay lobby would send in their checks. Any one who thinks Biden mis spoke is dumber than he is.
Well, that just means there's something there for everybody. Millions and millions of short posts.
Ladies and gentlemen, let the tweeting begin!
I forgot to mention our fine President’s mention of the stupid TV show “Will and Grace” being some kind of teaching tool....please tell me my President of my country did not assert such a thing!
That had to be one of the damn dumbest shows on TV, I know I had to be hearing things that my President didn’t point that show out as some kind of lesson learned and taught upon my screen.
Thank you, cause I wouldn’t want to live in a country with a President dumb enough to say that.
Liz would be a great pick but she may run for office.Usually a once a week gig would go to a Britt Hume or someone with his stature.
I just read an hilarious post from Andrew Sullivan’s next door neighbor in Provincetown on the conservative gay website “Gay Patriot.” Seems Andy and his “husband” fight all day long, have an open “marriage,” don’t control their dogs and Andy bicycles into town stoned out of his mind!
I love the internet!
On Monday Education Secretary, Arnie Duncan, a basketball buddy of Obama, endorses gay marriage. On Tuesday we have the vote in NC that the polls showed clearly the amendment would be approved.
On Wednesday, Obama summons an ABC gay, black reporter, Robin Roberts, to the WH for an exclusive interview to announce his "momentous" decision. He has evolved. The announcement sucks all the air out of what happened on Tuesday in NC and WVA, where a convict gets 40% of the Dem vote for President in the primary. It also sets Obama up for a huge fund raiser in Hollywood at Clooney's house, a function that had been set up some time ago.
On Thursday, the WP comes out with a lengthy story about Romney's high school days, including an incident that makes Romney look like a bully and a homophobe. ABC and the WP work closely together. They sponsor joint opinion polls among other things. It might explain why Obama selected ABC for the interview including naming the reporter that would be allowed to do it.
So is the timing of all of this a coincidence? How convenient is it that the WP had an article on Romney ready to go as soon as Obama made his announcement? The article had to take weeks of research.
Perhaps the timetable was moved up, but given the fundraising event, the NC ballot/primary, and the WP story, I tend to believe that this was all planned and orchestrated to occur on schedule. Also, given the fact that one out of six of Obama's biggest fundraisers are gay, he needed to open the spigots sooner rather than later. And a compliant and cooperative MSM would help him get the message out. This all smacks of Plouffe and Axelrod.
Thank you so much for that.
And my husband over in the peanut gallery offers his running commentary making my gravitas and straight face even harder to keep.
“Aw, Andrew Sullivan thinks of Obama as a father figure, ain’t that sweet?” husband says.
“What they hey, we got Chris Matthews on TWO shows?” husband asks when ole Chris appeared on Meet the Press.
I’m thinking Chris might get Gregory post on MTP as he licks this admin’s butt better than most anybody.
She is to the left of even Chris. Notice how she managed to pin the "FAR right" tag on Mourdock, TWICE, without challenge from anyone.
