"...people are saying gee, this is not a Republican issue. Democrats have done far worse on this issue, and we're an equal opportunity offender. So let's just get the bad guys out of here, and people love decency. They love traditional values. So let's embrace traditional values, and what makes the country great."

She literally swoons over Bush, if that tells you anything. Bush is her God.
