Harry Reid: Americans Aren't
Interested in Issues of Same-
Sex Marriage and Abortion

Cybercast News Service, by Christopher Goins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2012 4:50:32 PM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told reporters on Wednesday that the American people are not interested in the issues of same-sex marriage and abortion. A reporter asked Reid: “Do you have any plans to change the filibuster rule?” “Yes I do,” said Reid. “I’ve said so publicly and I continue to feel that way.” Reporter: “Can you talk about specifically what you want to do?” “I’m not going to talk specifically but you asked a question, I’m answering it,” said Reid. “Yes, I do. I think that the rules have been abused, and that

Wow. All Americans sure aren't but old dirty dingy Harry must not be aware of the main focus of his corrupt party. s/o Idiot. If a Republican made such a gaffe the media would be all over it 24/7.

As my ne'er-do-well uncle would declare, Harry Reid is a liar and he feet ain't mates! Our generation would say ''He's ugly and his mama dresses him funny.''

Either way, he doesn't have a clue what Americans are interested in since he isn't one.

Even a blind squirel finds a nut once in a while.

Gay marriage is not the end of the world. Sorry, to all of the social conservatives but lets keep the Gov't out of everyone's house.

I will never be pregnant so frankly keep the gov't out of it. If we as a party favor small government and personal responsibility then let people do what they feel is best.

Free will is a gift from our creator. We will all be judged one day.

That didn't stop the Democrats from putting those issues front and center in their campaigns, though, did it?

To hear election coverage on the alphabet channels, you'd think Americans were most concerned about whether or not Sandra Fluke got her sexual activities subsidized.

Harry Reid just like his boss Obama, have yet again given the finger to the Catholic Church, which did a very poor job informing its members before this election.
I hope everyone remembers Reid stating that if Romney was elected, he would not work with him.
I say Republicans reciprocate in kind, Obama was re-elected and Republicans will not work with him. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Talk about an exo-sketch party. This just makes it clear that Harry Reid is going to do what he wants in the Senate. If Obama wants something else he'll have to do it by executive order. There is going to be a lot of misery for the next 6 months. Then there may be even more for the balance of 2013. No one in the Democrat Party is leading.

I want my southern GOP congressional representative to introduce a constitutional amendment which allows for gay marriage, polygamy, polyamory, and insestual marriage. The whole lot, and not severable. All or none.

After all, love is love, right? That's what the pro-gay types are always bleating.

Let's settle it once and for all.

Wow, so many posters agree with Reid. Yes, the GOP continues to move Left and yet STILL can't win. Gee, go figure. Hard to believe so many folk in the GOP are ok with killing the innocent. The Bible says same sex marriage is a sin but I reckon not many in the GOP believe in the Bible either. You agree with Reid but not with the Bible. Wow!

Americans are interested, but they're not interested in hearing the GOP talk about them, especially at the national level. Social issues are not federal issues. Social issues are poison. The GOP has to stop talking about them, or die. You cannot force people to think or act morally. The GOP has become irrelevant for two big reasons: militarism and refusal to stop mixing social issues and politics.

Correction #12: The GOP 'has become irrelevant' because they allow the in your face voter fraud by the libtards to continue without executing those committing it, nor do they take steps to make it even tougher and more expensive to individuals to attempt it the next time. Did I also mention the idiots who have open primaries? Politics is a hardball game for adults only and the GOP has too many idiot children instead of adults with spines.

It doesn't make any difference what Reid does with Senate voting rules. As long as the House is Republican, no legislation can get through unless it meets GOP standards.

#12 – The GOP did not talk about social issues in this campaign. The GOP focused entirely on economic issues in a lousy economy, and lost.
The Democrats talked about social issues at great length. They did this to put the GOP in a defensive position, and forced them to discuss utterly irrelevant personal charges on fringe issues. Whether you like it or not, social issues will be discussed – Democrats view this as winning territory because they are allowed to control the narrative. GOP candidates should state unequivocally what their stance is and refuse to get drawn into discussions about rape and incest.

It is Democrats who use the power of the federal government to impose their view of morality on the nation, not conservatives. The single driving force of liberalism is to command control over your life. -0-bamacare alone is the biggest intrusion into your home and private life in US history. Conservatives don’t want to come into your home. Conservatives don’t want to tell you what to do in your home. Conservatives don’t want to have to hear about what goes on in your home, or be forced to approve of it or pay for it. Got it?

Yuban..u need to spend more time reading your bible. Our creator has given us free will. We are free to do what we want and we will be judged on that.

The GOP needs to fight as hard as the Dems do, they have to get down in the dirt like they do.

Most people do not want the gov't in their bedroom. I have the right to privacy. I have the right to make decisions that impact me. Its my decision.

If the GOP was smart they just announce that Roe vs Wade is settled law. If you don't like abortion dont have one.

For those that are criticizing the Hispanics that are pushing for the dream act, they are pushing for access to college not a welfare card. Seriously, take off your blinders and look at the people that work around you,

Americans aren't Harry but liberals controlled by democrats live by it.
So in the name of perhaps curtailing infant murder --abortion-- perhaps we should form a federal charity that provides free contraceptives and every American who donates to the fund should be able to take a full tax write off.
Every participant would only have to sign up and note she is a female without morals who lives by her unlady parts.
Best yet since men are more more than willing to help out a birth control pill should be designed for them.
The rewards will be great because within a few years their genes and DNA will be
wiped out of the human genomes.

I know this thread is long dead, but this is pathetic.

Most people do not want the gov't in their bedroom.
False charge against the GOP. It is not the gov’t going in to people’s bedrooms that is the problem, nor is that what conservatives are doing. The problem is people bringing what goes on in their bedroom out onto the street. Conservatives don’t care what you do in your bedroom. We don’t want to hear about it, be forced to approve of it, or un-define institutions that are as old as human civilization because of it.

If you don't like abortion dont have one.
Not the issue, nor is Roe v. Wade. The issue is forcing people to pay for abortions through gov’t coercion. The issue is forcing religious institutions to pay for abortion and contraception against their convictions. Not conservatives doing that.

”…they are pushing for access to college not a welfare card.”
So far off base it is surreal. Why would we pay for illegal immigrants to go to college? The DREAM act is a vote purchase. Public funding for college education of US citizens is already a huge chunk of what is bankrupting the nation – why would you exacerbate the problem by paying for those here illegally? See California for how this works in practice.

If I live to be 105 I will never understand how conservatives are the ones saddled with the “intrusion into people’s homes” meme – while Democrats freely regulate everything from how much water your toilet can flush to undermining parental authority through public schools to how much soda you can drink. Boggles the mind.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
