British Prime Minister Thanked For Gay Marriage Stance While Obama Listens

British Prime Minister Thanked For Gay Marriage Stance While Obama Listens

This happened during at a White House state dinner last month but we're just now hearing about it.

“Mr. Prime Minister, thank you for all that you’re doing for marriage equality in Great Britain,” the guest said to Cameron, who was standing to Obama’s right, literally and figuratively. With a gesture towards the president, Cameron replied, “It takes a conservative to convince a liberal about gay marriage.” If actions speak louder than words, then there should be no doubt where Obama stands on marriage equality. But for many, until the words of the president of the United States match his actions, he’ll remain on the wrong side of history and to the right of Cameron.

1. Did the President explain his theory of 'Sanctity' to them?

I wonder if he won their souls for Jesus?

2. If it "takes a conservative to convince a liberal", then wth is Cheney?

Some kind of uberliberal icon? Or are we finally accepting that someone who approves of torture, strip-searches of innocent people, ending Medicare and Social Security, continues endless wars for fun and profit, authorizes assassination of Americans, wants to destroy the environment for fun and profit, and hasn't met a Wall Street Tycoon that he doesn't like can't even be called "a conservative", much less "a moderate" or "a liberal"?

3. I'm fairly certain...

That he was speaking of the Conservative party of his country, not ours. I'm hopeful he would be every bit as ashamed of our 'conservatives' as we are.

5. One thing Cheney is right on that Obama is not is Marriage - Cheney is Pro-Marriage equality

Its a bit shameful that Omaba is still wrestling with a civil rights issue that the previous administration, minus the drunk, are now supporting.
