Posted on 05/12/2010 6:47:05 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Former first lady Laura Bush has broken with her husband on the premier social issues of his administration and said she backs gay marriage and abortion.
After more than eight years of silence on the controversial issues, Mrs. Bush said in an interview with CNN's Larry KingTuesday, that gay marriage and abortion were points of contention with her husband, former President George W. Bush.
Mrs. Bush in recent weeks has been promoting her memoir "Spoken from the Heart," in which she writes about her life both before and after becoming first lady.
In response to a question about gay marriage, she said, "There are a lot of people who have trouble coming to terms with that because they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a woman. But I also know that, you know, when couples are committed to each other and love each other, that they ought to have, I think, the same sort of rights that everyone has."
Mrs. Bush said she and the ex-president "disagree" on legalizing same-sex marriage.

Defend your POSITION. And stop whining and making goofy attacks that make no sense.
Please ping people when you talk about them.
Well at least she did her part as a mother.
I don't know if we can say the same about one Sarah Palin.
Please put that in your "truth file" and keep your personal animosity against me at Loser Post where it belongs (with all the banned freepers).
I won't reply again.
I am not arguing with anyone, not even you two meanies :)
I'm the bitch. I'm the one calling you what you are. Pull your skirts up and run whimpering from my rudeness, not hers.
Let me repeat...your tag line is a disgusting lie and you are a filth-fed LIAR! Your mewlings have become tiresome.
By the way, show me exactly where I'm a pitbull.
How am I a liar??? Laura Bush is pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage. (I have just amended my tagline to reflect that.) And this is a pro-life site.
Every American, gay or straight, has exactly the same right as any other American does.... to marry a person of the opposite sex.
You are really sick. I can honestly say that, after all of the attacks against me. You just don’t want to believe that Laura Bush is pro-abortion or pro-gay marriage. You accuse me of being dishonest.
Perhaps you should try to sort out your emotions, and then get back to me regarding the things I have actually said.
My only point to you was that Laura doesn't represent the Republican party. That is all.
You can’t show me where I’ve been a pitbull? Didn’t think so, since I haven’t been. You two are really something.
Perhaps "pitbull" was a tad too strong.
You called me one of the "rudest posters" you've ever encountered when I wasn't the least bit rude to you. You accused me of living in an "alternative universe" if I didn't see what didn't in reality, exist.
Let's leave it at this....you are wrong. Sort out your entwined emotions.
By the way, it’s all over the internet, not just at abc news. I checked. They are all reporting that Laura Bush is pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage.
Forgive me but I believe what you perceive as rudeness may just be passion and complete and utter disappointment. My view of abortion comes from friends and family members who had abortions and how their tragic stories affected me. Bad choices have serious consequences for women who have had abortions for years. Of the ones I know the men were the reasons why those women got abortions, they insisted. And NONE of them had good role models for mothers and had bad relationships with their mothers. If Mrs. Bush truly believes in support of things as abortion and gay marriage for me as another woman it takes away from what she tried to represent herself as first lady. She speaks of abortion as that protecting a woman’s life, using that excuse is so completely BS. Of the five women I spoke to it had nothing to do with health!! In fact two of them got pregnant again because of depression after having their first abortions only to have another abortion. You see they were still with the same men who wanted them to get the first abortions to begin with but these women, girls I should say and so they again got abortions. Having a prominent woman such as Mrs. Bush who is suppose to be a conservative, which of course we know now is not, to come out like this promoting her book and her support for such issues as abortion and gay marriage shows where her true loyalty was all along. With this Obama administration now one of the most prochoice supporters and Mrs. Bush comes out now with this? My respect is not given easily because it is so meaningful to me and I feel like it was just a slap to conservatives, maybe because she did have to keep her mouth shut for so long. But everybody knows how contentious the political games are now with the elections coming up in Nov. and now she speaks up? It is because of my experiences and being a woman that this just seriously angers me. Of the 50
million abortions how many were to protect the health of the woman Mrs. Bush?
I'm sorry I stepped on your feelings. TRUST me. I won't do it again.
And Deb and I are two completely different people, functioning entirely independently. Please try to get that figured out.
Your words: "Wow. This must be an alternate universe. I thought it was the place for conversation and give and take comments."
Apparently, your idea of give & take is to insult someone, then claim the insult is give & take. Then play innocent.
