27. No, I never attack the right wing. And I'm regularly crapping on weddings.
Edited on Sun Aug-01-10 11:48 AM by Kurovski

"What is the bottom line? It sounds to me like same-sex marriage was a wedge issue in 1996 and it is again in 2008 - or at least that is how the Clinton's want to deal with it. Bill speaks of revising history in the video clip like he is a professional at the task...and it appears that he is. Which came first - the chicken (gay-bashing political scapegoating) or the egg (DOMA)?

Just imagine for a moment - since Clinton is relying upon the bills/amendments that were passed limiting the citizenship of LGBT Americans since 2003 as the basis of his defense of DOMA - what might have been the outcome of a veto of DOMA and a courageous defense by the Democratic Party regarding the veto as being constitutionally and morally sound instead of taking the low road and allowing the citizenship of LGBT Americans to be campaign fodder for the next 12 years (and counting)?

It is completely offensive that the Clintons package DOMA as their attempt to protect us from our own citizenship." /

"Clinton went on to explain why he signed DOMA: "We were attempting at the time, in a very reactionary congress, to head off an attempt to send a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage to the states. And if you look at the Levin referendum much later in 2004, in the election, which the Republicans put on the ballot, to try to get the base vote for President Bush up, I think its obvious that something had to be done to try to keep the Republican congress presenting that."

President Clinton at least says that he "doesn't like" the DOMA:

EDIT: The DLC is in fact the right wing of the Democratic Party.
