Prominent Republicans Sign Brief in Support of Gay Marriage - NYTimes.com

   It's still too risky...or thought to be too risky for the risk-averse among us....for most GOP electeds to back same sex marriage...But dozens of prominent party leaders did that today by signing on to a brief in a Supreme Court case on the matter.
    Government sanctioned marriage long ago ceased to be a sacrament and one can see that in viewing the parade of people coming to municipal buildings.  
    New York already has SSM, so it's no big deal here.....And the World as we know it has not come to an end.

"Hey! What does the "LIbrul" guy have to say about this? Maybe he'll thinks it's finally OK to come out of the closet!

Ha! I caught he beginning of your show today when Mikey said 60 republican senators signed it!

Now you just have to tell us what "prominent" means, as the rest of us always thought that word meant something else than you seem to.

Why is it hard to understand that homosexuality is a defect and that society's interests are not served by providing financial incentives for homosexuals to "couple"?

Good for them! At the rate they’re going, they should catch up with the rest of the country in a century or two.

Did Obama sign it too?
Oh, that's right...he "evolved" over six months ago.

It just goes to show.. the TeaPubs are so desperate to win future elections, they are willing to give up their phony Christian values do it!

But hey, what else could they do.. it’s not like they have a soul to sell to the Devil or anything.. that already happened decades ago.

Sounds like the TeaPubs are as desperate as Obama was last July.
Oh wait...The only two names that anyone knows on the list are Meg Whitman and Jon Huntsman and neither of them are TeaPubs.

Too bad Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, were not pro gay marriage back in 2008, 2009, 2010 or else they could have passed it back then when they had super majority and control of all three houses.

I guess that just shows you how disgustingly hypocritical libruls are and so is the tripe printed in the rags that they read too.

Our once great country will soon fall. We can all take solace in how progressive we were. Whether gay marriage was a symptom or contributing cause is an argument for a librul to make. That question has nothing to do with bigotry and everything to do with what’s best for children and society.Just ask pro-gay, liberal democrat David Blankenhorn why he is against gay marriage.

“Republican Old Guard Crumbles Fast”

Needless to say NNY Republicans will be the last to admit they have misjudged the national mood to such an extent they’ve been proven to be ridiculously out of touch with reality. They attack liberals like they were a majority instead of a national joke. I’m fed up with their arrogance and na├»ve belief that they are somehow morally superior to Democrats who routinely kick their butts in important elections.

If it weren’t for the recent Gerrymandering of Congressional districts the Democrats would likely control Congress too. So Republicans try to suppress the vote in places like Pennsylvania to win by hook or crook. That’s what it has come to nationally for Republicans to have any shot at winning elections.

The Republican Party is has an approval rate of 29% percent nationally.

The NRA has 9 out of 10 Americans thinking they’re a radical fringe group that won't pass the gun control legislation that Americans want passed.

SSM (Same Sex Marriage) is a fact of life in this Country, so now Republicans finally approve of it. The same will happen with Gun Control and Immigration reform.

There's a philosophical Civil War going on in the Republican Party when a guy like Gov. Christie, of NJ can't get invited to a Conservative C-Pack convention. Why? He worked with President Obama to get Sandy relief legislation passed. Those hypocritical morons would have been begging for the same aid package, but criticize Gov. Christie, who gets shunned for doing the same thing for NJ. GOP in Congress is saying we were pushing austerity at the time. Yeah right!

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is going to be replaced by Ms. Kelly, who has an F rating with NRA, after Mayor Bloomberg spends 2 million hammering her opposition with Gun Control ads, in Democratic Congressional Primary in Chicago.

The need for a ‘Progressive’ wing in the Republican Party has never been more evident, but it will be ignored and same deadbeat intellects will try to sell the same snake oil and lose elections all over America.

Then finally the Tea Party will be thrown out of the Republican Party, but it will be too late and Republicanism will take decades to be competitive nationally again in America.

What a waste.

The democrat party is imploding. As mayors and comptrollers call out governors for foolishness that even they as fellow democrats find too reckless to ignore.
As a majority in the state senate turns out not to be, due to inner fighting and flowers blooming from dirty pavement.

centrist who had always given their votes to democrats because of two issues of gay marriage and abortions, can no long er counted on to sign on to the silliness of democrats. Entire county legislators are taking a stand and some official time to thumb their collective noses at the Governor.

The 47million Americans that voted for Mittens are gaining numbers. The voter fraud factor of black voters will surly lose some steam when the next presidential election has no black candidate.

Hell Mike! It isn't just the Rep.s who are out of touch! The whole government system in the country has failed and hasn't a clue what average Joe wants. I want to get up in the morning, get dressed, milk the cats, drink a big gulp if I want, shoot more then 7 shots at the range, not get married to a dude, go to any church I see fit, write my will out without government help, pick what ever heath options I can afford, drive a big truck id i can afford to do so, say no to windmills if they block my view of the North Country, and much more. I don't need the Nanny State to step in and raise me now, I am a grown man. Sure i milk cats for a living, but I do work every day.

Then why are less then 30% of Americans on board with the Republican Party is the question that needs answering?

“The democrat party is imploding…”

Really?

Well according to a new Pew poll released just this Tuesday, the majority of Americans have figured out that the Republican Party has been taken over by the far right wackos!

Sixty-two percent of participants say that the GOP is out of touch and 52% said they are too extreme. Compare that to 46% and 39% respectively, who think that about the Democratic Party.

In virtually every category the pollsters asked about; being out of touch, too extreme, looking out for the country’s future, favorability and disapproval; the Republicans scored miserably. The only area they did better than Democrats was in the strength of their principles.

That’s reasonable I suppose if one considers a political party is willing to let the entire country go to hell in a hand basket just to stick to their “guns.” (pun intended). I guess they have strong “convictions”, because they certainly have no honor.

ANON 2:26 PM seems to have this right to me and backed it up with good data.

Blah blah blah...poll this.
The only poll that matters is on election day. Republicans came within inches of winning even when they ran vulture capitalist Gordon Gekko who was going to self deport illegal aliens. Locally they came within inches of winning, even when they ran a guy that owns an island.

And now the MSN is turning on your party. Jon Stewart is calling out black-face democrats from the party of hypocrisy. Woodword is calling out Obama for the POS he is. Comptrollers and mayors are calling out the Governor for the piece of sh@#$ he is. Dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Well duh! Sorry to have to break it to you this way… but you your side got that wrong too!

Now go sit in the corner and scratch your balls like a good little right wing chimp.

Oops, by bad…I forgot, you don’t have any.
