Republican governors signal shift on
gay marriage in bid to attract voters

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/13/2014 2:41:52 PM

Deep in the Bible Belt, new signs emerged this weekend of evolving views among Republican governors on gay marriage. While the Republican Party´s religious conservatives continue to fight against same-sex marriage, its governors appear to be backing off their opposition – in their rhetoric, at least. For some, the shift may be more a matter of tone than substance as the GOP tries to attract new voters ahead of the midterm elections. Nonetheless, it is a dramatic turn for a party that has long been defined by social conservative values. "I don´t think the Republican Party is fighting it," Wisconsin´s

Comments:
Anyone who actually believes that “signaling” a “shift” towards sexual deviancy will have the DemocRAT voters flocking to the GOP has definitely been doing way too many “recreational” drugs.

“I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for America’s gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nation’s military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.” — Willard Mitt Romney 1994 (While running against Ted Kennedy for Massachusetts Senate Seat) The First RepublicRat to embrace the Perverse Sexual Deviants...

Are these guys nuts??? The country is circling the drain and gay marriage is the one thing that has them focused? Fellas, just side step that issue and tell the gaystapo, I´ll get back to you. The country is on fire right at this moment and we need to put it out! If you had a patriotic bone in your body, you would end the gay victim melodrama and get your priorities straight, no pun intended. There are more important issues than if your sexual preferences aren´t being respected or not. Republicans needs to put the media in its place when they bring this up. This is not the pressing issue of the day! Saving the Republic is!!

In article posted yesterday, Ben Carson is quoted:

http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=792099

“I actually would favor a voting system, in which there were no political designations on the ballot, where you actually had to know what the person believed. You had to know how they voted in the past.”

Apply that to this situation ...

About what I expected from the so called establishment. About 2% of the people in this country are Gay, they make a lot of noise, so Republican governors just jumped on the bandwagon and could have irritated 98% of the rest of the country.

I have always looked at the welfare of children as the reason for marriage. I´d say trust nature on this and if Gays want to enter into Civil Unions, then fine just don´t destroy and demean Mother Nature for a what you think are a few votes.

I´d like to know who voted for this shifty vote and those opposed. Meanwhile the country is being overrun with diseased invaders allowed by a so called President who thinks he is King.

Worry about that for just a few minutes. Waiting... waiting.

Most people I know who are in a company of those they believe will not intimidate them are against same sex marriage. They are not against gay people, in fact they have many friends, acquaintances and business associates that are gay. The campaign to intimidate people so they don´t speak out has worked well against individuals, politicians and political parties. It is time people speak their minds and let the chips fall where they may as far as their friendships; friends should be able to disagree and not be disagreeable.

The left is secular and has adopted leftist policies as their religion, so what it amounts to with gay marriage is their effort to put another crack in the Judea Christian religions. Since our entire Constitution is based on these aforementioned religious tenets, it amounts to destroying the Constitution, which is also an effort of the left.

They apparently treat GOP voters like the Dems treat their voters. Nothing will stop a Dem from voting for a Dem. On the other hand the governors don´t seem to be thinking about how many voters they will lose.

They don´t call the GOP the stupid party for no reason.

Why are these idiots convinced this will be a winning strategy? Gay marriage is an issue that´s only important to a very small number of people. The state by state legalization was due to judicial interference, against the people´s will. What exactly is the difference between Democrats and Republicans?

When hunting ducks or geese, you never shoot when the lead bird comes into sight. Instead, you let the decoys and duck calls draw the flock in. Come on GOP governors, ignore the people who elected you and fly into that flock of birds you see on the water and are calling to you through the press.

Oy vey! This decision has been decided and its a sign that there are people who understand that a majority of Americans want marriage rights extended to gay people. The reality is that most Americans do not want to be ruled by the religious Right and on this issue gay marriages are going to be recognized by the civil authorities. Sorry, that´s the truth so get use to it.

My perception of the Buckeye State´s GOP is they are more liberal. I admit am biased, Ohio is not a favorite state for me. In conservative states, we object to one judge deciding marriage is for gays. This is what happened in my state, Virginia. The poster may be right that this is the way it will be, but we do not have to vote for GOP leaders that do not stand for traditional values.

Unfortunately for Scott Walker his comment is a big negative for me and might make me less likely to support his candidacy should he want to run for President. I will choose someone in line with my values.

That facts are that there are a substantial percentage of Republicans that are values voters. They are solid Republican voters because they know the Demon-RATs are totally opposed to their values.

If the Republican establishment starts to cave on core value beliefs, they are not going to pick up a single vote, but they are going to lose even more of their base voters.

Don´t get me wrong, I don´t take anything from the AP as having any facts behind it. But, sadly, as pitiful as the RNC has become, I wouldn´t doubt that this one is true...

It is no surprise that young people are enamored of communism. Their teachers have been indoctrinating them for years into the utopia of “social justice,” “environmental justice,” the “evil” middle class, and the spectacular equality for all as envisioned by Marx, Engels, and Lenin. Communism is “cool” in the land where wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt is a hypocritical political statement made while enjoying capitalist amenities. But we expect them to mature eventually and give up the absurdity that communism has not succeeded because the wrong people were in charge. Furthermore, we don’t expect them to elect representatives that mirror their youthful

As if the heartache couldn’t get any worse, families of MH17 victims were today greeted with the most undignified scene imaginable – their loved ones in black body bags being lined up on the side of a road and thrown into the back of rubbish trucks. Almost 200 victims were piled high in the sweltering heat on eastern Ukraine before being carted off to a refrigerated train after their passenger jet was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. For three days the 298 victims of the attack were left where they fell, in a field near the village of Grabovo in eastern

Footage has emerged from deep inside the mysterious crater that has suddenly appeared in Siberia. The crater on the Yamal Peninsula - known as the ´end of the world´ to locals - was caused by aliens, a meteorite, a stray missile, or an explosive gas cocktail released due to global warming, according to theories last week. Russian scientists recently returned from the first expedition to look inside the giant hole which was previously spotted by helicopter. Their footage highlights a darkening around the rim which was earlier seen as evidence of heat possibly from an explosion during the crater´s creation. ´They found the crater

Vladimir Putin has issued a defiant warning that the MH17 crash must not be used for ´selfish political ends´ and urged separatists to allow international experts access to the crash site. Wearing a dark suit and looking tired and drawn during a rare television address, the Russian president insisted ´all people´ in Ukraine had a responsibility to the families of the 298 passengers and crew who died last week. But he added: ´No-one has the right to use this tragedy for any kind of vested interest in the political sense. Such incidents should unite people rather than separate them.´ His comments came just

Every time American Thinker posts am article condemning the incompetence of the Obama administration (as one of mine did recently), the comments sections are rife with contempt for the authors for ascribing to incompetence what to those readers is a truly Machiavellian, leftist scheme to undermine the greatness of America. And every time some reader labels me politically correct (a quite laughable charge as anyone who knows this knuckle-dragger can attest) or politically naïve, I’m reminded of the adage, “Never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by ineptitude.” I’d always heard that was a Napoleon quote but curiosity drove

The argument about whether the regime of Vladimir Putin is evil and whether the people of Russia are complicit in that evil ended decisively on July 17, 2014 at 14:15 GMT, when Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was blown out of the sky over Ukraine by a Russian-made surface to air missile fired either by Russia-trained Ukrainians or Russian military forces. At least one American, Quinn Lucas Schansman, was murdered in the barbaric Russian act.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here.

Barack Obama has managed to do something one would hardly imagine a President could achieve by the midpoint of his second term. He has managed to anger most segments of the American populace, including those to the far Left who constitute a significant part of his base. It has taken time for most people to reach this point. Americans are amazingly patient with their presidents, but Obama has pushed them beyond scandal fatigue. The “final straw” appears to be the illegal alien invasion masterminded by Obama.

The slow American withdrawal from world affairs has been apparent for a long time, but has never been so glaringly evident as this week in the Middle East. Hamas is at war with Israel, the brutal struggle in Syria frustrates the world, the terrorists of ISIS are making serious progress in Iraq — and now another attempt to deprive Iran of nuclear weapons has, so far, been thwarted. The United States has a position of sorts in each of these arenas, but it’s not powerful in any of them. American influence has faded. The world’s governments no longer worry as much as they

(snip) It is as though the more dangerous the world becomes the more Obama hides in a fantasy world of avoiding the responsibilities of the presidency.

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

Miami - A jury in northwest Florida awarded a staggering $23 billion judgment late Friday against the country’s second-largest tobacco company for causing the death of a chain smoker who died of lung cancer at the age of 36. Michael Johnson Sr. died in 1996 after smoking for more than 20 years. In 2006, his widow, Cynthia Robinson, of Pensacola, sued the R. J. Reynolds Company, the maker of the Kool brand cigarettes her husband had smoked, arguing that the company had deliberately concealed the health hazards its product caused. The four-week trial ended Wednesday. The jury deliberated for 18 hours over two days,

A female general who has never piloted a military aircraft has been nominated by US President Barack Obama to head the Air Force in the Pacific. Air Force Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson was nominated by the president for a fourth star and to be commanding general of the military branch’s Pacific operations. If confirmed, she will be the first four-star female commander of combat forces, the Pentagon announced. But many wonder if her lack of experience in the air puts US forces on a highway to the danger zone. ‘You make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you
