    I’ve got my fingers crossed that at least one of the four referendums taking place in Novermber (Washington, Maryland, Minnesota and Maine) goes our way. Eventually we will see the results of these polls filtering down into actual results but it hasn’t happened yet.

      Washington, Maryland and Maine all will I think, but Minnesota will go against. However, seeing as Romney’s chances just completely imploded and will hopefully take down a few GOP Congress hopefuls I expect we’ll see a lot of progress over the next four years whatever these referenda results turn out to be.

        I’m especially hopeful for Maine and there would be a delicious moment of schadenfreude in seeing a uber right wing teaparty republican being forced to sign same sex marriage into law.

        The others I’m just not sure. Washington seems the most likely.

        Don’t count Romney out yet, there’s a long way to go until November.

    It’s interesting to see the (conservative) Republicans exercising their own version of DADT – Don’t Ask us questions, Don’t Talk to reporters.
    Their beloved Pres. Bush drove the economic bus deep into the ditch, and now they’re are bitching that Obama is cleaning up their mess too slowly. They think they can win the Presidency by just bitching, and remain totally clueless on any details about how they are going to do it. The fact is that they don’t want to fix it; they want to return the Congressional leashes to the major corporations.

      This is exactly the case. Romney is desperately hoping that hatred of Obama will be enough to deliver him the White House. It’s looking less and less likely that is going to happen as Romney continually opens his mouth only to change feet. It’s even beginning to look like the Democrats may retain the Senate thanks in no small part to the GOP’s standard bearer.

      But nothing is ever certain in American politics. The Republicans will be out in force attempting to win this election by fair means or foul. There is evidence that Bush stole both of his elections and it is going to be close. And in many of the states where it is going to be so close there are Republican governors. To me that does not bode well.

  3. The re-election of a President openly in favour of equal marriage in November will boost progress enormously. It is virtually certain now that Romney will go down to a well-deserved defeat after the exposure of his hatred and contempt for half of his fellow citizens.
