""But gay marriage, supported by less than one-third of Americans in 2004, is now supported by a solid majority in recent polls, with approval highest among younger voters. Some Republicans believe that mounting public support represents a danger to their party, and they are scrambling to prevent Democrats from using the issue of gay rights in the same way some in their own party did for years.""

Repubs showing they are still backward thinkers and they need to move on to this century!

In time it will be known that far left radicals and lunatics are segregationists themselves. These 'issues' in the short term have done more harm than good for those identifying as gay. If they are not careful, they will destroy themselves and their cause along with the far left dictators of our time. Orwell is laughing.
Hysterically.

The liberal recipe for disaster is that others who disagree with them will pay their way. See the recent picket lines for a raise and hilarious women's rights bs on pmsnbc. Democrats can't create jobs. Period!

After the economy has been the way it has for SEVERAL years under OBAMA who the hell would want to vote for another Democrat coming up in the next election? Take responsibility for your own FAILED policies instead of blaming some one else. GTF out!

nice try dear...but it's about your left wing nincompoop's pandering, and desperate attempts to make an insignificant issue important...because you have nothing, nada, zip, ziltch, zero else to use...other than your old stand-by...baseless personal attacks.
face it, moonbeam, the progressive movement has collapsed ...social engineering is NOT what the folks want...
I'm sure your progressive loons will be back in 30 years or so, that seems to be the cycle...kinda like locusts...

While the 1st part of your post is the 1st sensible thing I've ever heard a Teahadist say about the newest grave dancing Benghazi spectacle, the whimpering 2nd part is denial wrapped in ignorance with a nice miasma of desperation.
You know the next shot at the WH that, whatever the GOPTEA Party ever decides it should be, is, will be around 2030, right?

Either you are an ignoramus, or your nose just grew another six inches. It is well known that Obama submitted a comprehensive jobs plan to Congress quite awhile ago. It is also well known that the Republican-led House has blocked a vote on it.

Homosexuals are competing for more right with illegal Mexicans and illegal muslims.

Homosexual activists are lobbying politicians to lower the age for consensual sex to thirteen (13).
Gullible children, especially young boys, will be taken advantage of and parents will be completely out of the loop.

This is the agenda for the democRATS.

Oh good, I only hope the Republican Party as captured by its fundie and racist base doubles down on the anti gay bigotry...I mean, since this whole becoming a wedge for the Democrats is just a mirage.
