Rove is going to destroy the GOP by pushing it Center Left.

It will either follow his lead to the left and become irrelevant, or the Cruz/Paul wing will take over and revive it. Either way, Rove is surfing the wave of the past.

America will suffer the same fate as we did in Canada. After decades of multi-party opposition to homosexual “marriage”, the governing Liberal party rammed it through Parliament in 2005 after a cabal of media, academics, special interest groups, judges and politicians perpetrated a fraud on the Canadian people. Phony polls, non-stop media coverage of a supposed “shift” in the views of Canadians, the failure of the Liberal party to unequivocally state that it was in favour of the abomination, and a supposedly “conservative” opposition party that refused to make the issue a key issue in the 2004 election. Once the establishment coalesces around an idea it is almost impossible to stop it. And the Republican establishment is clearly in the process of capitulating. It’s not just Rove, just read National Review Online and you’ll see how the pro-homosexual charge is being led by Jonah Goldberg, the founding editor of NRO, who has been undermining the conservative opposition to homosexual marriage for over a decade.

“GOP strategist Karl Rove..”

Interesting turn of phraseology.

For the guy who thought his anointed one - Romney - would win, to his series of near misses with the last incompetent to sit in the White House before the current boob stole the elections - twice.

Gee. I can’t imagine the GOP looking at all the votes their pro gay candidate got and thinking “We can do this”.

Nope. Sure can’t.

I will not be voting for a gay marriage supporting Republican, and neither will I be voting against a Democrat, they’ll be indistinguishable!

Early on in the primaries, demand that candidates assert that until nomination, and if they are nominated, that they will under no circumstances employ Karl Rove, or any of his peers or underlings, in any capacity.

And if elected, the party will officially declare him to be “personna non grata”.

Rove’s stepfather was gay. So his position on this issue is not a surprise.

"GOP strategist Karl Rove says he can imagine a Republican candidate in the next presidential campaign supporting gay marriage."

Then they might as well change their party affiliation and run as a Democrat. I'll never vote for another GOP RINO pick...ever.

For the “Architect” (of LOOSING) it's all about creating a “message” that will appeal to the broadest number of potential republican voters.

Maintaining power in the hands of republicans is the ultimate goal.

This is not synonymous with promoting conservative principles. Principles be damned! Keeping republicans in power is the name of the game.

My word, what a betrayal. Now we know why his friends in the media have not finished him off. He’s always been for the redefinition of traditional marriage. He has always been out to silence the conservatives(more proof). When Rush tells us over and over; they hate us (social conservatives; Christians.. )that’s the hint... it has been Rove and the people in control of the way they want that party to go) Until that guy and this current Speaker is old news; the betrayal and weakness to America’s values will only become worse. To have this view same sex being granted a husband/wife status is making me think they are not faithful to any religion. In the Bible it says not to bring any whore, sodomite, or dog into the house of the Lord. For "these things are an abomination to the Lord." This will end the GOP and if this is their plan, to support gay sin it’s needs to be brought out so millions of Christians can leave that party and be faithful to the Lord, not to this era of anything you want to do, it goes lifestyle.

Rove thinks that approving gay marriage will be the end of gay agenda.

Just like electing the first black president stopped the race card from being played any more?

The question I have is what traditional value does the Left— and their counterparts across the aisle, who will capitulate— have in their sights after the homosexual marriage thing plays out as it will?

The right to private property really isn't fair and must be done away with? Or maybe it will be determined the right to peaceably assemble and to petition the government for redress of grievances is dangerous to dictators government, and is only contemplated by "extremists." Usually TEA Partiers.

I think removal of the right to bear arms campaign is a bridge too far, but losing that won't stop them and they will go for any seemingly small victory to gain a foothold. What's next?

Just read the 1963 list of Communist goals and cross-reference it with the time since. You’ll have your answer.

Rove, Noonan, Hume, Perino, Portman and others who think the base specially down in the south will support this then they are mistaken.

After speaking to a bunch of guys about this today then they are really missing how much people are pissed off about this

Sarah, Michelle Bachmann, Cruz, Ryan, etc are the future, Rove, and his elitist pals can take a flying leap off a building as far as I’m concerned and the likes of Hannity who sucked up to this idiot had better wake the hell up , stop giving these idiots a platform and start to mention about thia agenda.

This family will never vote for any man or woman who is a coward on this issue and social issues or supports this communist agenda

society rewards the institution not the individual

homosexual conduct is ONLY about recreational sex.

recreational sex contributes nothing to society

homoseuxal conduct contributes nothing to society.

we used to have a non-public system of marriage recording. This lead to inheritance fraud, bigamy, and abandonment of children.

marriage is about intestate property rights. not just land, but all the other associated property rights. homosexuals have always been free to sign a form cohabitation agreenmtent. 19.95 online or at your local office supply store.

this is not about marriage, this is about declarining the way two homosexual men pop an orgasm as the legal equivalent of a mother giving birth.

Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
