I agree with the point of this article.

Harvey said much the same thing, "When they know at least one of us personally, they're less likely to vote against us." This, of course, assumes that the "a least one of us" isn't some totally abrasive loser.

Such conversations are how the politics of change REALLY work outside the beltway.

This is very true. I have witnessed it in Seattle shelters, oddly. Even the hardest bigot turns very soft after having to live with, and get along with, lesbians for a long period of time. It's an uplifting change, to see them actually become friends even.

Only a BALD FACED LIAR &/or complete ignoramus would claim the promised to keep unempolymnet under 8%

His promise to cut the defiecnt in 1/2 is to Dad promising to take his kid to the baseball game....but the game was called because of a snow storm. "Well, we're not there because this recession turned out to be a lot deeper than any of us realized. Everybody who is out there back in 2009, if you look back at what their estimates were in terms of how many jobs had been lost, how bad the economy had contracted when I took office, everybody underestimated it. People thought that the economy contracted 3 percent. It turns out it contracted close to 9 percent."

Of course the was unable to make more significant progress because of the Repukes obstruction efforts.

While never homophobic, 30 years ago, I just 'tolerated' GLBTG community. But then AIDS came along and the hate-mongering despicable he Reich-wing hate-mongering Christo-nazis began their demonetization. Their hate rapidly moved me to supporting the GLBTG's efforts for civil rights including civil-unions, but short of 'marriage.'

But over a period of about a yer or so, I realized it was intellectually dishonest to expect civil rights to be achieved without marriage.

And as my dear wife of 45 years (mostly pretty damn good) ask: "How would 2 loving people of any sex getting married affect our marriage?

Yes indeed the marxist media wants everyone to believe that when the lord marshal b. h. obama speaks the entire country drops what they were doing and takes up the issue at home, beside a watercooler, sitting on the crapper, getting a root canal and at other "gathering places." Frankly most people could care less about the wierd topic of same sex marriage especially when most of the country cannot afford a pot to piss in.

I believe the same may apply to racism.

Attention libelous democRat!!! Where the hell do you think you are, at your shrink's office randomly pointing fingers trying to rid yourself of guilt? I suggest a history illiterate like you explain to the class why you vote democRat knowing full well the democRat Party owns the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, lynching, etc. I mean you have a lot of pot scrubbing to do before you and the democRat Party claim to be all gay friendly and righteous minded. Especially when yesterday's democRat slave masters used blacks to pick cotton and today's democRat slave masters use blacks to harvest votes. GFY

Attention libelous democRat douchebagger!!! Not so fast you fast ball peewee, in 2006 morons like you made democRats a congressional majority and at that point in 2006 things began to unravel. In 2006 the lord marshal b. h. obama was a senator in that majority. In 2008 the lord marshal was elected president by morons just like you and today in 2012 he's been around for almost 6 years. In other words the lord marshal has swung the bat for almost 6 years peewee and he has consistently struck out. GFY
