Homophobia has been a central part of Republican electoral strategy for years - most notably in 2004, when Republicans put anti-gay-marriage amendments on state ballots around the country to increase turnout by religious right voters.

The title for this thread is so misleading that it borders on the edge of total hilarity. Powerful gay republicans, come on steve, there is no such thing. Not to say that there are not republicans that are gay, its just that there are none, absolutely none, that are considered powerful. You probably know one or two, because you worship these sexual miscreants and social screw ups. I, and most other people, couldnt name one, because they are inconsequential, and I doubt seriously that they are cowering in the closet. Dont project your inner demons onto people that dont ask for it.

Laura Bush asked former President not to use gay marriage as wedge issue

''In 2004 the social question that animated the campaign was gay marriage. Before the election season had unfolded, I had talked to George about not making gay marriage a significant issue. We have, I reminded him, a number of close friends who are gay or whose children are gay. But at that moment I could never have imagined what path this issue would take and where it would lead.''

Steve you are so obsessed with gay republicans, are you interested in dating them?

I admire liberal democrats that vote democrat on every issue, and then overwhelmingly ban gay marriage at the ballot box, this they do because Hispanics and Blacks raised in a church-going environment believe homosexuality and civil unions are against Biblical Teachings, they even strongly oppose gay rights.

These liberal democrats should continue to lobby for gay votes, and then betray them by banning gay marriage at the ballot box.

In recent years, gay rights activists have compared their plight to that of the early black civil rights pioneers, but most blacks have rejected that view. They say homosexuality is more an issue of morality than equality.

We're living in an age where a gay man like Michael Jones has more credibility than a GOD talking GOP man like Ted Haggard ! All GOP GOD talking Ted's are local !
What an idiot and an act of total stupidity, to think that either one of these bastards have any credibility at all. Haggard would still have more than you, anyday.

G.O.P. Consultant Weds His Male Partner

By ADAM NAGOURNEY

Published: April 9, 2005

WASHINGTON, April 8 - Arthur J. Finkelstein, a prominent Republican consultant who has directed a series of hard-edged political campaigns to elect conservatives in the United States and Israel over the last 25 years, said Friday that he had married his male partner in a civil ceremony at his home in Massachusetts.

Mr. Finkelstein, 59, who has made a practice of defeating Democrats by trying to demonize them as liberal, said in a brief interview that he had married his partner of 40 years to ensure that the couple had the same benefits available to married heterosexual couples.

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth

This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (SBVT) "registered their group under Section 527 of the U.S. tax code and went public at a news conference held in the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 4, 2004." [1]

The group, rebranded as Swift Vets and POWs for Truth, is an advocacy organization formed in 2004 by opponents of John Kerry's U.S. presidential campaign.(The group's name refers to the class of boat on which Kerry and some of the organization's members served in the Vietnam War.)

Primary projects have been: their www.swiftvets.com website, the book Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry (released by the conservative Regnery Publishing), and a series of television advertisements challenging John Kerry's military record and activism against the Vietnam War.

The group's credibility has been challenged due to misleading, false or inconsistent statements.[2][3] A detailed review of the claims in their book is also available.[4]

The SBVT propaganda smear campaign was financed by Sam Fox, a billionaire and hardline rightwinger.[5] The fact that Fox financed this project was revealed during his Senate confirmation hearings to become US ambassador to Belgium. Although the Senate blocked his confirmation pointing out Fox's pernicious activities, George Bush appointed Fox over the authority of the Senate during a "Senate recess". Furthermore, the PR company responsible for the SBVT (and whose bill Fox paid) was Arthur J. Finkelstein and Associates run by Arthur J. Finkelstein, the "dirty-tricks guy for the Republicans".[6] Finkelstein is best know for his black-propaganda campaigns that are primarily character assassinations or smearing -- as the SBVT campaign demonstrates.

Michael Louis Connell (November 30, 1963 December 19, 2008) was a high-level Republican consultant who was subpoenaed in a case regarding alleged tampering with the 2004 U.S. Presidential election and a case involving thousands of missing emails pertaining to the political firing of U.S. Attorneys. Connell was killed in a plane crash on December 19, 2008.

Connell was originally from Illinois and lived in Bath Township, near Akron, Ohio.[1] His company also maintained a website for the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth 527 group during the 2004 election.[2]

Laura, the "Finkel-think." path lead to BuSh's Brownwood. Your husband wouldn't have won without this kind of "Finkel-think." activity. All "Finkel-think." activity is local, even in Villages like Brownwood home to nearly 100 Churches !

"Finkel-think" ?

I, Liberal Steve, better understand Bible Belt CONservative Republicans who publicly bash GAYS and are closeted Gay themselves ! Some apparently even attempt to hide behind their wives and marriages ! They are quite the "performers" !

The GOP's crowded closet
The party's culture of concealment has led to embarrassment and personal destruction. Isn't it about time for the right to cure its homophobia?
