Quick!! Look over here!
Here we go...
THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Next week, the United States Senate will begin debate on a constitutional amendment that defines marriage in the United States as the union of a man and woman.
At least this time around it sounds like some of his base is onto the ploy: some conservatives on Fox were saying this is like "throwing a bone here, throwing a bone there".
How does 'ole George sleep at night? Soldiers dying in Iraq... Terrorism on the rise world-wide for the last 5 years... 20 million kids living below the poverty line... millions of American's without health care (and skipping meals to pay for required drugs)... and THIS issue is the one he's gonna take on.
This is pure politics folks -- absolutely pure. There's very little chance the amendment will actually pass, so all this is supposed to do is appease the base. But as I mentioned, its likely to back-fire on that account too.
The Republicans in power talk morals & values: but this has got to be the most morally bankrupt administration and congress in history.
