As long as they pander to 'religious' nutcases the gop will be a minority party. Normal educated people don't want the government in their bedrooms or their doctor's office! Mind your own business!!

Most people will recognize "social conservatism" as a euphemism for plain old bigotry. And most people won't like it.

So long GOP. Rest in pieces.

Where do you come up with this crap?

Suggesting that the majority of African-Americans have sold their votes for a welfare check makes YOU the biggest racist on this thread so far.

Condi Rice was part of that whole eight year Bush fiasco. My opinion of her role n American politics has nothing to do with race. The white guys in the room were morons too.

As far a Carson...he's a very accomplished man that just happens to be an extremist religious nut.

First you people stereotype an then you accuse other people of the prejudice that you display on a daily basis.

Social issues, intolerance and hypocrisy cost you an election in 2012. It's time real conservatives figured that out and sent you people back to the wilderness you came from.

Murkowski becomes third GOP senator to back gay marriage

A third Republican senator has come out in favor of gay marriage, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) announcing her support Wednesday morning.

“I am a life-long Republican because I believe in promoting freedom and limiting the reach of government,” Murkowski wrote on her Web site.“When government does act, I believe it should encourage family values. I support the right of all Americans to marry the person they love and choose because I believe doing so promotes both values: it keeps politicians out of the most private and personal aspects of peoples’ lives – while also encouraging more families to form and more adults to make a lifetime commitment to one another.”

Murkowski joins Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who earlier this year became the first GOP senators to back gay marriage. Murkowski is also the 54th sitting senator to endorse gay marriage.(All but three of the 54 members of the Senate Democratic caucus have also backed gay marriage.)

There was no Bush fiasco....al queda, a bogus surplus myth and other problems were sent his way..After 9/11, he did everything according to the constitution, including Afghanistan and Iraq.

Lies, deceit, illegal voting (four democrat workers jailed in Indiana a few days ago), oblumber didn't even qualify to be on the ballot.

False accusations by the left on Bush, McCain, Palin, Romney, their families, IRS being told to target conservatives before the election, Benghazi buried under the table until election.

Obama's biggest base are those who are on government dole and you know it. Are they still on the dole....yes.

Are the republican led states leading in emplooyment of minorities....yes.

Get real, pinhead. Successful blacks attacked because they believe in a Christian religion, yet clowns like you say leave the islamic radicals alone!!

What the hell has that to do with low taxes and growing businesses...I saw your flag..no problem there. There are millions of gay republicans, you're too dense to know it.

Gay marriage should be a state issue, not federal.

When asked about New York passing gay marriage, Rick Perry said that' is their business.

You just don't get it...your a bigot and a racist.

The subject of this thread is the republican party and social issues.

Check the headline if you don't believe me.

Marriage equality is a social issue so...you up to speed yet or do I need to go slower?

The point of the post is that the republican party is in turmoil and no matter how much noise you right wingers make...you're losing ground everyday.

Hope you're enjoying your afternoon.

Social issue accusations are a left propaganda election theme, period. 30 governorships out of 50, those states having strong economic gains...people having jobs and money in their pockets is the biggest issue of all...which the republicans are best at creating. The demorat social entitlement mantra spend, tax, spend ain't working, buddy boy.

Only 2,000 showed up to see oblumber in Germany today..LMAO

A good afternoon. Obama stumbles in his speach at Brandenburg..

State Sen. Elbert Guillory of Louisiana a black democrat swtitches to republican party. Called democrats...."overseers!! " Familiar!

Obama and crew throwing people under the bus over these scandals...

Republican national hispanic assembly blasting democrat policies that keep hispanics unemployed!!

http://www.rnha.org/

Yeah right, a few republicans disagree and the left cries "turmoil!"

Meanwhile oblumber and the dems are pushing the self destruct button.

Get real.
