Skip to comments.Karl Rove: Next GOP Presidential Candidate Could Support Gay Marriage
Posted on 03/25/2013 1:12:17 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
GOP strategist Karl Rove says he can imagine a Republican candidate in the next presidential campaign supporting gay marriage.
The statement from the former adviser to President George W. Bush appears to acknowledge that opposition to gay marriage has waned in some conservative circles.
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, announced last week that he now supports gay marriage after learning one of his sons was gay.
Rove's comment was part of a panel discussion on ABC's "This Week." He did not elaborate.

Warmin’ the bench for Jeb.
What? Is Jeb for gay marriage?
Go away Karl. NO one wants what you are selling.
The Gay Old Party is blooming. How sweet!
Rove’s finger must really hurt constantly being held up in the wind.
Maybe he will but I won’t be voting for him.
Then the next GOP candidate could do without my vote.
I’d like the next GOP strategist to support the GOP.
I wish we had more faggot news stories...
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, announced last week that he now supports NAMBLA after learning one of his other sons is a pedophile.
Same here. It looks like Rove is already planning the strategy for the next RINO candidate.And, by the way, I’m totally upset about my senator, Rob Portman. He has sold out to the RINO machine, lock, stock and barrel. He’ll never get another vote from me.
I’m goona puke.
He’s prolly right.
So, what choice will we have then?
Just vote for lower offices, I guess, as long as those don’t go all rainbow on us, too.
Why would ANYONE listen to the Rove Job? People get paid for being correct and this guy is beyond an idiot.
Heck I wouldn’t be surprised if the next GOP candidate is Hillary. I mean she’s a little right of Obama so she is perfect...Rove would be happy. The Rino’s love that hag....perfect fit!
Honestly, not a day can go by without reading/hearing something about the queer brigade. Sick to death of it all and how I wish tubby Rove would get a freakin clue!
Exactly. He is way overrated. He is actually quite stupid. And I recall him bashing GOP candidates. By promoting gay marriage, the GOP candidate will lose more than he will gain in votes.
The woods are crawling with so called conservative people supporting homosexual agendas. We knew about Cheney’s daughter. Then there is Rove’s father. Now we find Justice Roberts has a niece who will be given big time publicity at the SC hearings on homo privileges. Perhaps Larry Sinclair will be emboldened to talk more about Obama. The world is not what used to be taken as normal
It’s disgusting, and I hope Rove comes down here to FL and falls into a sinkhole.
Today he's not...
This crap is pissing me off so bad, I’m actually willing to give Huck another look.
The GOP will be dead to me if this is true.
Jeb’s flexible; he’ll be whatever the consultants tell him to be
rove is exactly right, the next GOP candidate should be pro gay marriage....that’s why we need to get rolling with the Tea Party!!!
We need a new party ASAP. The way things are going, not many will defend traditional marriage because they are fishing for votes and it will not work.
Why, there pillsbury? Looking at nuptials for you and miss Lindsey?
Yep, the next loser republican.
Thats an easy one Karl
The candidate supports gay marriage, I don’t support the candidate.
Is Rove a little bit light in his loafers?
Which is why they want Roberts to make it a “right”.
Removes it from the election, and gives the GOP a solid “lock” on social cons now that abortion is starting to go the other way.
Google “The Franklin Coverup”.
The GOP has been very Gay friendly for a long time.
Methinks Karl Rove is Gay....and not what my grandparents would have called “gay”
Bullcrap. Karl is just busy trying to take conscience off the menu again.
Not that he ever had one. No wonder the Bushes call him "Turd Blossom".
Who knows if it was true, or well-sourced. It would explain a lot of things Rove has done or been involved with going back beyond 2000, but then so would gay PAC money.
Mark Levin on his radio show the other night was ranting against Karl Rove’s new anti tea-party political group. Mark then dropped this b@mbshell; Who died and made you Queen for a day? Yes, Karl, I said Queen.
There have been rumors about Karl for years; remember his involvement getting fake reporter and gay prostitute Jeff Gannon (James Guckert) a White House Press pass?
Could Marks statement be equivalent to Bill Mahers Share the same bathhouses, comment on now self-outed Ken Mehlman?
Makes no difference to me, I’ve been done voting for Republicans. I will vote for conservatives at the local level. There aren’t any true conservatives at the national level, and even when they talk a good game and say all the right things, they never fail to get co-opted if they win.
So let the GOP enjoy all the power it’s going to acquire from “reaching out” to groups whose very existence as such in the GOP undermines everything which gave me reason to vote for them. We’ll both find out if the trade-off was worth it for them, in terms of pure power. There’s no doubt it wasn’t worth it in the loss of principle and integrity, at least IMO.
Of course he can.
And when social conservatives once again stay home in droves to avoid voting for the third consecutive liberal squish Republican Presidential candidate, he STILL won't get why he keeps losing.
Neither will I.
Then the GOP party will be dead forever.
Jeb is a Catholic. Why would he support gay unions?
