    Cynical attempt to grab the White House then wreak havoc with the US economy

    He was architect of this referendums on “marriage definition” in November 2004, what help for Bush to be reelected President (especially referendum in swing-state Ohio).

    They lost me in the second phrase of the first sentence, in which Rove says he “can imagine”.

  4. Another sign that the Republican party will split into two parties, with an extremist element being pushed out. The Republicans now know that their party is outdated, their moralistic views and religious aspect no longer relevant to the majority of Americans. They cannot survive on the “guns, god and gay-bashing” agenda, preaching to small-town red-neck America, and they have to change and be relevant to middle America.

    The religious faction will not like this and they will form their own party. This is a good thing, it will remove all religious and extremist funding from the Republican party and weaken their impact even more.

  5. According to latest polls, 58 percent of Americans support marriage equality. This number climbs up to 70 percent when it comes to Americans younger than 40 and to a whopping 81 percent of Americans under 30. So this is just the Republicans finally acknowledging the writing on the wall and the fact that hating the gays is no longer a way to win elections. Simple as that. They’re still as homophobic as they always were.

  6. The Pathetic U turn of a bunch of rich bigots – USA the homeland of scumbag superstitious republicans.

  7. When will this bunch of cretins finally accept that it’s not ‘cool’ to gay-bash anymore? As more people come out, the whole population of America will, sooner or later, know someone gay … and they’ll find they are not ‘the devil’s spawn’. Religion continues to do an amazing job of shooting itself in the foot by being anti-gay as rational people question the sanity of weirdos like the Phelps and the vatican. So, my advice to ‘the reigious’ is: PLEASE, keep up the good work.
