I knew that Marilyn Musgrave and Rick Santorum said they would reintroduce a constitutional amendment to outlaw same sex marriage, but apparently now The Prince of Darkness is saying that Bush will back it as well.
I have no link(s), but my friend Yvon tells me Rove was on NBC's "Meet the Press" this morning, and later was on "Fox News Sunday".
Apparently, he told Faux News, "If we want to have a hopeful and decent society, we ought to aim for the ideal, and the ideal is that marriage ought to be, and should be, a union of a man and a woman," and said that Bush would be pushing congress to pass the bill this time.
Renewing his push for an amendment would be a way for Bush to reward his conservative base, even if the amendment would face a steep hurdle winning the needed approval of three-fourths of the states.
Well, he did say he was going to "spend some earned political capital." Is anyone surprised that this is the very first thing he picked?
edited to fix missing words. *tsk* I think even *more* quickly than I type on a Sunday morning...
