Dick Cheney on "gay marriage"
From the 2000 veep debate:

"People should be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to enter into. It is really no one else's business, in terms of trying to regulate or - or prohibit behavior in that regard. ...I think we ought to do everything we can to - to tolerate and accommodate whatever kind of relationships people want to enter into.:"

I guess Dick is "off the ticket" in 2004, huh?


Sort of funny that of this duo, its the "Dan Quayle" who is president whle the "GH Bush" is the veep.

1. Wow. I'll be damned.
Does he not have a gay daughter?

I read somewhere yesterday that the pukes are getting together funding for a new plan to encourage poor women to marry, which will even include cash bonuses for some. Guess Cheney is against that too?

6. He sure does...and he also said....
recall Cheney, back when he was GH Bushes SecDef, said the ban on gays in the military was "an old chestnut".

We all know that the GOP is playing politics w the gay issue, but the odd thing with Cheney is thay he isn't "on message" 100%...he will let his personal tolerance show through every now and then.

Bush, however, probably really is a homophobe at heart, or a simpleton who just mouths homophobic plaitutudes.

4. Then Cheney didn't write *'s response in the press conference??
Who knows?? They don't DARE come out for gay marriages -- they know who their supporters are.

So, which is the regime's actual position?? What the Cretin said yesterday??

5. Speaking of what he said....
Edited on Thu Jul-31-03 07:16 PM by alaine
On the Craig Kilborn show last night they took the film from all the times that he said "uh" and spliced it together so it looked like his whole speech was a series of "uhs". It was hiliarious. And they ended the speech with Bush referring to "the California". I was pleasantly surprised.

edit: this is in reference to Bush's speech yesterday, in case it's not clear what I am talking about.

7. Democrats need to exploit this.
The reich wing fundamentalists would abandon Bush if he said the same thing that Cheney said. Some would abandon him if he just waffled on Cheney's statements. Bush can not possibly win without the reich wing fundamentalist vote. If Bush repudiates Cheney's views, some moderate republican and independent voters may have second thoughts about supporting Bush. This would be more likely if the democrats made sure to publicize the statements and actions of the reich wing. It is an opportunity to weaken Bush that the democrats should take advantage of.
