WASHINGTON (AP) — Gay
marriage legalization in several states and the public's growing acceptance of
same-sex unions have Democrats sensing political opportunity and some
Republicans re-evaluating their party's hard-line opposition to an issue that
long has rallied its base.
(ap) - It's like this AP, the guy that you
campaigned and Voted for last fall, the Messiah... The One... Barry Hussein
Obama-Rodham-Sotero, does NOT Support Homosexual Marriage, and neither does his
Vice President... It's true. If only THAT were the headline... But then again,
what benefit would that have for the AP's Deviants? And furthermore, the
AP's headline is dishonest in was that irritate me, and I will explain why as we
continue. Just KNOW this... Americans are not more accepting of Homosexual
Marriage, the Liberal Courts are at the guidance of TRIPE like this from the AP
and the New York Times. - tha malcontent)
In recent weeks, Vermont and Iowa have legalized same-sex marriage, while New
York, Maine and New Hampshire have taken steps in that direction. Polls show
younger Americans are far are more tolerant on the issue than are older
generations. For now at least, the public is much more focused on the troubled
economy and two wars than on social issues.
(You don't support sexual deviants redefining marriage outside of what is a
reflection of what Creates our species naturally?... Then the AP says you are
intolerant. The sad thing is, there are a lot of people who don't want to be
called intolerant, no matter how dishonest the accusation is against them, as is
the case in this situation. - tha malcontent)
In addition, over the past decade, public acceptance of gay marriage has changed

that maybe you and the Deviants in Hollywood have affected public opinion at
all? But what does that matter, it's whatever the Liberals in the Courts
dictate, isn't it. - tha malcontent)
A Quinnipiac University poll released last week found that a majority of people
questioned, by a 55-38 percent margin, oppose gay marriage. But it also found
that people, by a 57-38 percent margin, support civil unions that would provide
marriage-like rights for same-sex couples, indicating a shift toward more

With congressional elections next year, Republicans, Democrats and nonpartisan
analysts say the changes benefit Democrats, whose bedrock liberals favor gay
unions, and disadvantage Republicans, whose conservative base insists that
marriage be solely between a man and a woman.
(I'd LOVE to see the names of these Republicans...
And regardless, a deterioration of society benefiting DemocRATS isn't exactly
something they should be happy about. - tha malcontent)
"This is not a sea change. This is a tide that is slowly rising in favor of gay
marriage," creating a favorable political situation for Democrats and ever-more
difficulty for Republicans, said David McCuan, a political scientist at Sonoma
State University in California.
(The more I hear the AP regurgitate this, the more I
question if they really believe it themselves, or are they trying to convince
themselves of it with repetition?... - tha malcontent)
Democrats have a broader base filled with more accepting younger voters, as well
as flexibility on the issue. Hard-core liberals support gay marriage, while
others, including President Barack Obama, take a more moderate position of civil
unions and defer to states on gay marriage.
(Not supporting Homosexual Marriage is now
"Moderate" because it's the Messiah's position?... Here little lap dog, come
here AP... Good boy... Sit. - tha malcontent)
Conversely, the GOP base is older, smaller and more conservative. Republicans
have no place to shift on the issue but to the left, because the party has been
identified largely with its rock-solid opposition to gay marriage and civil
unions. Also, the GOP has no titular head setting the tone on this or other

sexual deviancy, they are done?... This is an AP "News" story, is it not? - tha
In recent months, proponents have used state legislatures and court challenges
to legalize gay marriage, mindful that the majority of the public still isn't
supportive and successful ballot measures would be less likely.
(So the REPUBLICans ARE on the majority side of this
Issue?... So much so that the Liberals have to molest society with the Courts
and the Legislatures because they KNOW that the American People do NOT support
Homosexual Marriage?... You can't have it both ways, AP! - tha malcontent)
Because of high court rulings, gay marriage now is legal in Iowa, Massachusetts
and Connecticut. A Vermont law allowing gay marriage will take effect in
September. New Hampshire and New Jersey, where same-sex couples can enter into
civil unions, are considering gay marriage legislation. So are Maine and New

Political insiders no doubt will pay close attention to developments in Iowa and
New Hampshire, early presidential voting states, to see how the issue plays out
in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election.
(Why do Liberals hate Voters? - tha malcontent)
Despite the changes, gay-marriage opponents are buoyed by a voter initiative in
California that blocked the state from allowing gay marriage, and by the 29
states where voters have approved state constitutional amendments banning gay

For years, the GOP and its conservative base has used its opposition to gay
marriage to drive Republican turnout in elections and marginalize party
moderates. Measures defining marriage between a man and a woman that were on
ballots in a slew of states in 2004 were widely credited with boosting the
number of conservative voters, giving Republican George W. Bush an edge over
Democrat John Kerry.
(Is this an Opinion piece?... Is it the AP's job to
make such assertions? If they were to say that Barry played on the fears of
Americans during a Recession last fall with his "Great Depression" talk, and
that he used it to get Votes, then I guess I could say there were just observing
some analysis on an even handed basis, but they would no more ink that than they
would Vote for a REPUBLICan. - tha malcontent)
But there's been conflicting evidence since then over just how much that
contributed to Bush's victory.
(I'd say... I thought the AP and their Party's line
in 2004 was that (43) scared Voters with Terrorism to get reelected?... I guess
it was Homosexual Marriage that got us a Votin'! - tha malcontent)
What's certain is that opposition to gay marriage for decades has been a potent
tool for the GOP in rallying social conservatives. They are critical to the
party's grass-roots organizing and small-dollar fundraising.
(That's "certain"?... What the ****, AP? You have an
Obligation, not just to the 1st Amendment, but to the Public, and to your own
claims of Objectivity, to NOT do what you are doing right now. - tha malcontent)
But as more states accept gay and lesbian unions, there is a debate inside the
party over how it should position itself on the issue. The dispute is just one
part of a broader struggle within the out-of-power GOP over its identity and
whether it should focus on rallying conservatives or attracting supporters from
across the political spectrum.
(But "more states" are NOT accepting Homosexual
Marriage. Every single time it's given to "the People", they Vote AGAINST it.
More Liberal Courts are FORCING this Deviancy, it is NOT being "accepted"...
Stop Lying, AP. - tha malcontent)
Some prominent Republicans are backing away from cut-and-dried opposition, and
some party operatives say it's only a matter of time before others follow suit
because the country is changing.
("Some" people say "some" things "some" of the
time... We are not against Laws allowing a Homosexual to go visit their AIDS
inflicted partner in the Hospital while they Die. Laws that hinder that are
WRONG, but Marriage needs NOT be molested in some veiled attempt to give an
underserved validation to a sexual deviancy that is not on it's own merits,
deserving. - tha malcontent)
Republican Gov. Jon Huntsman of Utah, a Mormon who is a potential presidential
candidate, backed a 2004 constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a
man and a woman. But he says he favors civil unions and extending some legal
rights to gay couples.
(Yeah, as do MOST people, regardless of Party
affiliation, AP... And you KNOW this. If you respected your Constitutional
Responsibility as a "Free Press", you wouldn't be so obviously rooting for one
side on this issue like you are. - tha malcontent)
Last month, John McCain's chief campaign strategist, Steve Schmidt, told the Log
Cabin Republicans: "Even though a majority of Republicans remain opposed to it,
we must respect dissent on the subject within the party and encourage debate
over it, and should not reject out of hand and on specious grounds ... that the
party might be in the wrong on the question."

The shifting landscape is emboldening the gay-rights' movement, a pillar of the

"We are at a tipping point moment," said Joe Solmonese, president of the Human
Rights Campaign, a leading advocate of gay rights. "The lingering minority that
continues to think that the way to win is to hold GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual
and transgender) people up as a wedge could not be more out of touch."
(We are NOT the "minority" you filthy, lying
