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.
Laura Bush does not promote, work on committees for, sell t-shirts advocating or stop people on the street to sing the praises of either abortion or gay marriage. She has never done a single thing to advance either cause.
The facts are, George Bush supported, praised and signed the Defense of Marriage act. His first act as president was to repeal Clinton's exec. order permitting abortions on military bases and the federal funding of abortions abroad. His first veto was to stop embryonic stem cell experiments and he was the most Pro Life president in our history.
So maybe if he hadn't been married to Laura he would have taken out Dr. Tiller himself. You moron.
