Posted on 02/26/2013 6:49:01 AM PST by US Navy Vet
WASHINGTON Dozens of prominent Republicans including top advisers to former President George W. Bush, four former governors and two members of Congress have signed a legal brief arguing that gay people have a constitutional right to marry, a position that amounts to a direct challenge to Speaker John A. Boehner and reflects the civil war in the party since the November election.

I keep saying... the entire Bush family are secret agents of the Democrats sent to destroy the Republican Party from within. Looks like they are succeeding.
TWO house members is a direct challenge to Boehner? This list is a bunch of has-been alos-ran self-described Republicans already well-known for their trouble-making-ways and liberal views.
Among them are Meg Whitman, who supported Proposition 8 when she ran for California governor; Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Richard Hanna of New York; Stephen J. Hadley, a Bush national security adviser; Carlos Gutierrez, a commerce secretary to Mr. Bush; James B. Comey, a top Bush Justice Department official; David A. Stockman, President Ronald Reagans first budget director; and Deborah Pryce, a former member of the House Republican leadership from Ohio who is retired from Congress.
For >3% of the population, the Nation willingly goes down the dumper to accommodate their perversions. It’s all but over.
Has Karl Rove signed yet?
What a concept that would be!
The GOP is going the way of The Whigs.
No guts, no glory, no principle.
If I want a social democratic party, I’ll vote for the Democrats.
Quite frankly, who needs a degenerate GOP?
Ted Olson is the only one of the group who I didn't think was a liberal until he took the case for the Prop 8 haters to begin with. Pray for him in his confusion.
It seems to me that if the Feds have the right to overturn state law on marriage, they have the right to overturn state law on anything.
None of them are conservatives.
And I was happy when the idiot Whitman lost to Jerry Brown! Conservatives in the GOP just don’t see reason to vote these days.
Selective NYT’s info...
Stockman was fired by Reagan as an incompetent fool....
The rest are just irrelevant has-beens....
BTW, from now on I am going to disregard all future emanations from any politician that claims "my opinion has evolved." "My opinion has evolved" is weasel code for "I'm compromising my principles for money and power!" (or, just as likely, "I never agreed with you rednecks to begin with but I had to play along to get elected.")
“Why not focus on protecting actual Rights in the Constitution, like the Right to keep and bear arms (which shall not be infringed)?”
I agree. Conservative Americans are “off in all directions.” We lost two critical presidential elections, and we’re in panic mode. I’m going to lose some friends here, but I think we need to DEMAND support for our Constitution and advance from there AFTER we win the first crucial battle. The Second Amendment protects ALL the rest. Without the ability to resist tyranny, all the rest is moot. And, please don’t forget, the man this nation elected President has stated his wish to be emperor. If we keep dividing up to support all the items that are important to us, we’ll get none of them. First, we need to unite behind the Constitution and win back our Republic.
Sodomites are an abomination. Sodomite “marriage” is even worse, if that is possible.
There is a world of hurt coming on this nation and any nation that glorifies sin. Nations cannot be punished in the next life. They will be punished now by God’s incontrovertible truth.
The sodomite is radically “disorganized”. See Romans 1. He won’t be content with “marriage”. He will want payback in an extreme way against normal people, because the sodomites are “filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, MALICIOUSNESS, full of envy, MURDER, debate, DECEIT, MALIGNITY, whisperers, BACKBITERS, HATERS OF GOD, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, COVENANTBREAKERS, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTiON, implacable, UNMERCIFUL.” (Romans 1:29-31)
The worst is yet to come.
Reagan was a freak occurrence for the eGOP and their opinions about and hold on political power and he really rocked their boat.
The Bush family has been working to "correct" Reagan's corrections ever since and put US back where Reagan had found us.
And so, here we are living the natural follow up extension of the Carter plan: the new world order's utopian obamanation as far as the eye can see.
Like the man said, "The Reagan revolution is over."
Almost, and all brought to us by the Bush family eGOP.
Did they sign THE BRIEF or did they sign THEir BRIEFS?
Perhaps they all need to take a road trip to Dallas
Oh didn’t you bother to read everything? There also seems to be someone who advised Pres. Reagan mentioned in there too? Now does that make him a “secret agent of the Democrats sent to destroy the Republican Party from within.”? Not hardly! You need to read more thoroughly! tsk tsk...
to all who cannot or will not become friendly with the libertarians because it is said they support abortion, gay marriage, or whatever else...
the pubs are not even fighting abortion in fubocare, yet their platform is anti abortion..
the pubs are not even fighting gay marriage, yet their platform is pro traditional marriage...
the pubs are caving on immigration, yet their platform is against it...
beginning to see a pattern??
you are being lied to, and buying into it lock, stock and barrel...
So are there any policy items now that are different between the republicans and democrats?
Not a surprise, nor the presence of so many Bush people.
This is just one more reason why we need a third political party or a Republican Party willing and able to PURGE itself of individuals who do NOT reflect the opinions of most of their constituency or the majority of Americans.
We are step by step demonstrating we are diverting our paths from that of the God who founded, nourished and protected us in years gone by. And that God is a jealous God who punishes the transgressor as well as rewards his followers.
I am disgusted at this abomination.
