Log Cabin Republicans don't support Bush

Quote:
The board of Log Cabin Republicans, the largest group for gay men and lesbians in the party, voted overwhelming last night against endorsing President Bush for re-election because of his support for a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
The story cites 2000 exit polls which showed 1 million gays and lesbians voted for Bush including 45,000 in Florida. Do you think this lack of endorsement could hurt Bush? [please stay on topic, we have enough time between now and Nov. to debate whether gay marriage should be legal]

Depends on how big the influence of this group is. One million gay votes is a lot though, especially when you see Bush and his friends are showing them zero respect with this Defense of Marriage bullshit.

Finally, they saw the light!

Thanks for the followup to a fairly heated discussion regarding these folks last month in this forum.

Now it's time for other disaffected groups within the GOP to realize that it's time for regime change.

I'm glad you can determine how homosexuals should vote.

Well, it is kind of hard to understand why a homosexual individual would vote for someone who is against extending them pretty much any legal recognition in his or her relationships.

Kerry is against gay marriage, and would leave it to the states to ban gay marriage. Same result - different method.

Kerry supports civil unions of gays but not gay marriage, and opposes the constitutional amendment against gay marriage which Bush supports. If these people plan to vote, and they probably do, this might hurt Bush as some of them might revolt this year.

Not the same, the states are be able to make their own decision NOT to ban, Bush won`t allow gay marriage for the WHOLE country.

It is the same. Where does Kerry stand? Against gay marriage. You can dance around the legalities all you want.

That raises questions of leadership - I'll say one thing, but let others do "the dirty work".

A President cannot ban gay marriage. They can only take a stance on the issue.

Is Kerry acceptably against gay marriage?

you think enforcing the personal lifestyle to others is leadership?

I don't see either Kerry or Bush enforcing their own personal lifestyle on the public.

Both have taken a position on the issue. Why take a position if you do not intend on leading according to your position?
