  1. Coward. Totally anti-gay as everyone already knows but at the same time totally cowardly and sneaky to admit it and even to come out publicly as anti-gay to help his bigot friends fight equal rights. Some intestinal worms have more dignity and decency than this idiot, at least they don’t deny what they are.

  2. “Bush responded: “I shouldn’t be taking a speck out of somebody else’s eye when I have a log in my own.”

    It shows he thinks of being gay as a sin which can be forgiven…. he seems to think allowing gay marriage is about overlooking an imperfection.

    Bigot.

    1. Even though it clearly isn’t sin. He needs to read his bible properly and stop following what the other so called “Christians” consider all supposed anti gay verses from the bible mean. They aren’t anti gay, they are ALL anti prostitution. BIG BIG difference!!

    I think, Mr Bush was all ways very in favor of marriage equality, just must keep this in silence, because it was too controversial and political dangerous issue during his presidency. For Obama it was much more easy, perhaps he still a little sceptical about all of this.

    1. Utter nonsense. He repeatedly called for a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. He even made that insane statement during a State of the Union address. He doesn’t even have the courage of his own convictions. Plus, his new statements drip with condescension and judgment. He was the worst president of two generations.

      You mushroom!

    3. I’m not fooled by your name. Are you deliberately stupid, or have you always been stupid or have you been practicing a long time?

  4. Dont care what he thinks, probably better he keeps his mouth shut as I’ve not heard anything worth listning to come out of it.

  5. Mr. Dufus speaks again and who cares?

  6. Seems that even Dubya has finally realised that that Equal Marriage is happening all around the world and that the ‘Wind of Change’ is blowing very strongly through the USA.

    It must be hard to give up being a flat earther, but Mitt Romney’s crushing defeat has worked wonders.

    Why has anybody asked this amoeba anything? Who cares what this nobody gooseberry thinks or says? He is of no consequence, no intellect, no relevance – he had his chance and spectacularly failed. Thank goodness for Obama, the rest of the world (not just the gays) feels less threatened now that Dubbya has exited stage left.

    “George W Bush keeps up neutral stance on same-sex marriage.’

    Can’t make up his mind? I suppose he hasn’t got one to make up.

  9. As President he was publicly against marriage equality (whether for personal or political reasons or both). As a former President he would still have influence amongst the Republicans but for the second time he has publicly refused to weigh into the debate. If he doesn’t agree with marriage equality the next best thing from our perspective is for him to remain silent on the issue, which is he doing.

    As I said before we should look at his refusal to publicly endorse either side as a small win.

  10. He’ll go down in history as the worst US President who was consistently on the wrong side of issues -political, economic and social. What a loser!

      YES, YES, YES ! You are perfectly right. A monster, a master of doing the wrong things on wrong occasions.

      It might amuse you that there is statistical evidence from polls and academic studies that he already has gone down as one of the worst:

  11. Once a politician, always a politician and as a politician, you he is always going to dodge answering questions.

    The man is a vile bigot.

    I suspect Bush has to be reminded of his own name each morning. With that difficult question don’t suppose he could cope with a question about something as serious as marriage equality.

  13. Sorry to say this about any human being, but this man is complete moron! Why are even bothering to listen to him. He led the world – Australia included – into two horrible wars, the aftermath of which we are still experiencing. He has NOTHING TO SAY.

    In the early days of his presidency, he once said that that the issue should be left to state legislatures, not ‘activist judges’. Even them, it’s not enough for the right wing religious loons to defy legislatures and resort to referenda where it’s allowed. They just don’t want any part of it and wished it would go away, same as the tossers in the Lords.

  15. w’s tendencies have been bruited about for many many years—his taking sides on things gay is a deflection of his own proclivities. don’t be fooled! he’s not quite as stupid as he would, perhaps, like us to believe.

    Who really cares what the WORSE U.S. President has to say on anything?

  17. I have a feeling that the GOP have asked him to keep avoiding the issue. As others note, Bush’s homophobia is well known, but the Republican leadership has begun the long hard road of disengaging from religious bigots in its support base which it now knows will keep it out of power. It has lost the game over equal marriage and understands that figures like Bush continuing to voice public hostility to it will only harm the party among those vital ‘swing voters’.

    The planet would be a better place if he had never been born or was removed.

    Not one of USA better Presidents….Wealthy scum comes to mind.

    Why anyone wants to interview him I just don’t understand.

    Because a neutral stance takes no brains to defend.

    If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality. – Desmond Tutu
