    I have to say the real GOP debate was better for laughs than Funny or Die.

    I’m still ABO. Not enthused, but ABO. I’ll save a lot of time, money and trouble this election cycle. 😉

    Little GeorgeS was obnoxious, don’t know why he kept pounding them with gay marriage, they were all for civil unions. I don’t remember Obama getting whacked over the head like this?

    Why didn’t the GLBT community rally behind Mary Cheney? Her and her partner established an LLC partnership with all the rights of a “marriage” ? I believe they even had a big wedding?

    When I worked for a veterinary hospital, we had many gay couples and their pets were a very much part of their family. They registered with us as any “married” couple would and one name would be under “spouse”. Either partner could bring the pet in for services and sign surgery/treatment authorizations. No big whoop. One couple brought their newborn doxie litter and mom in for a post partum and “well baby” check up. A few weeks later I went to their home to pick out a puppie and it was as though I was adopting a real baby (as it should be with breeders!). To this day, I think working for their vet helped me qualify 😀

      Byron York:

      The contraception episode, along with extensive questioning by ABC on gay marriage and gay adoption, renewed grumbling among Republicans about GOP debates moderated by mainstream media figures with liberal backgrounds — in the case of Stephanopoulos, as a top operative in the 1992 Clinton campaign and first-term Clinton White House. During the debate, Republican political strategist Mike Murphy sent out a tweet that likely spoke for a lot of Republicans: “Why is it every ABC question sounds like a Democratic wedge issue in the general election?”

        I came to the revelation that Mitt Romney should be the nominee, regardless of what I feel about the candidate field. Contrary to popular belief, Obama does not want Romney to be the nominee. His best bet is to have Romney beaten up by his opponents in the GOP primaries. The problem with debates is that if it’s not on Fox News, it’s going to be moderated by people who are anything but moderate. The Democrats could refuse to debate on Fox News in 2008, but Republicans would only be able to debate on Fox News if they avoided liberal news networks.

        Notice how the Sunday shows are either making the Republicans say why Romney sucks or complaining why they won’t talk about Romney sucking enough in the debates.

          I agree that Romney should be the Republican nominee. Not only is Romney the best of a bad lot, the media do not like him. That is always a good sign.


        • votermom says:

          I have to disagree with that. Obama may fear Romney, but only because he knows that his base (aka fat cats) are just as happy to have Mitt as they are to have him.
          Mitt could beat Obama, and I would vote for Mitt over Obama, but we would just get the same regime continued.

        • 1539days says:

          Except Hollywood and the media would at least hate him.

        • votermom says:

          Yeah, Mitt is marginally better than Obama in that regard.

      • djmm says:

        Well, Diane Sawyer wrote speeches for Nixon, so I do not think she is liberal. I think they went soft on Senator Santorum.

      Your comment has made me very sad.

      In short ~ we are not second class citizens. We deserve every right that heterosexuals have. Period.

      That is why gay marriage matters. And we should NOT have to go to additional expense and jump through legal hoops to have our basic rights.

      • indigogrrl1 says:

        My partner and I have 3 children together. Trust me ~ it is a very big “whoop”.

      • stxabuela says:

        Every person deserves to have the same rights. Marriage equality, NOW.

      • DandyTiger says:

        Agree. It’s a basic right. We need equal rights for all. Period.

        No one running for president now on either side is for gay marriage. So it is odd that it’s made a big issue in the Republican debate. They all have pretty much the same view as Obama. Actually, Obama thinks it’s a lifestyle choice, so some of the Republican’s may be slightly better believe it or not.

        But there needs to be constant pressure on all politicians for equal rights.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m sorry my comment made you sad 😦 That was not my intention, I’ll try and think first before I shoot from my hip comments in the future {hug}.

        • indigogrrl says:

          hey there – apology accepted.

          I wont school ya on all the ways this injustice impacts gay peoples lives (legally, financially, emotionally) but I will say that behind every political issue that these skeezball politicians are trying to win points with are real people with real problems and pain.

          thanks for apologizing. thats so rare in the blogosphere!

    • yttik says:

      Gay marriage needs to happen at the state level, one state at a time and at the congressional level. A president has little to do with it. Congress would have to pass an amendment making it the law of the land. Interrogating presidential candidates about gay marriage is simply playing politics. A president cannot write a decree or declare something is the law of the land. How they feel about gay marriage is pretty much irrelevant, because they don’t write laws, congress does.

    They had another debate this morning on MSNBC and FB. Romney says what he thinks people want to hear, and he lies without blinking. He is Obama’s twin.
