Bush bashes Mary Cheney and Heather Poe in his radio address

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The President used his weekly radio address today not to talk about Iraq or gas prices or global warming or Katrina or even his favorite subject, "September the 11th." No your President used his radio address to do some gay bashing. This issue is not about "protecting marriage." It's about using gay and lesbian Americans as a political weapon:

"Ages of experience have taught us that the commitment of a husband and a wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society," Bush said in his Saturday radio address. "Marriage cannot be cut off from its cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening this good influence on society."

Democrats say Senate floor time is being wasted on the issue, and accuse Republicans of making a pre-midterm election appeal to social conservatives whose votes were key to Bush's re-election.
It's amazing that the media covers this like it's an issue with any policy merit. It's pure, unadulterated hate politics.

If it can happen to the gays, it can happen to anyone.
