People need to recall these liberals wherever possible and make their political existence hell where they can’t.
As long as we the voters just ‘take it’ we are going to get more of it. Yes, it’s going to result in some bad outcomes in the SHORT term. That’s reality. But this is a LONG term fight and we collectively best get to fighting it. And war isn’t pretty.
But as long as we have conservatives that believe in unicorns and magic bullet solutions, we go nowhere but down.
Portman talks like a gay blade himself.
Oh, don’t remind me! I’m struggling to think of a solid conservative voice for Ohio. Seriously, can you think of one? Have any called out Kasich for expanding Medicaid or Portman for his flip flop on gay marriage?
The same thing that is wrong with the rest of the nation. Too many buy the rhetoric of Republicans pretending to be conservative.
Given how brazenly Portman has stabbed voters in the back and what a lightening-rod issue this is, I doubt he'd survive a primary today. He's hoping, though, the Supreme Court declares same-sex marriage a right and voters will forget the issue by 2016 when he is up for reelection. But, I won't forget.
I’m pretty sure there’s no recall option in Ohio. I’ve never been a big fan of them but maybe I’ll have to flipflop my position.
I doubt seriously if any such poll exists in Ohio. Ohio is socially conservative state.
More likely, Portman is a RINO that has been in Washington DC so long that looking to move the party to the left on the issue nationally.
Just remember that you’ll have a pack of psuedoCons telling you that you MUST reelect him. And calling you a traitor to America if you don’t.
Because the dem running against him will back gay marriage...oh wait...
That’s where the ‘make their political life hell’ thing comes in ;)
So if his son had stolen from a charity, cheated on his wife, failed to pay taxes, sold confidential information to foreign nations, got busted for DUI, or jumped a subway turnstyle, what sort of reaction could we have expected from Portman?
We ain't got one. Right down the line, they all turned on us: LaTourette, Kasich, Portman, Boehner.
What is the proper response...
First of all, he didn't turn "gay." He's become a homosexual . . . period. "Gay" means happy, and if he thinks that the homosexual lifestyle will make him happy, he's got another thing comming: alcoholism, STDs, gay men's bowel syndrome, AIDs, suicide, violence, more than likely a lifespan of 39-41 years tops, etc.
I would encourage such a child to go back to church, get counseling from his priest or reverend, pray, and hope that Christ will lead him out of such a horrible lifestyle.
That's a hell of a lot better advice than to be an enabler. Portman should be ashamed of himself.
I have always had my children's safety in focus when I outlined things to beware of.. Don't touch a hot stove, or anything on the burners, do not cross the street without looking both ways, do get in any cars with strangers, stay away from drugs, and liquor, and stay away from any lifestyle that is unhealthy, which includes the Gay lifestyle in particular, among many others..
It is my responsibility to lead my kids in the right direction, these just make common sense..
Get rid of this embarrassment, Ohio. Sheesh. Good thing his offspring isn’t a transvestite or Rob would start wearing a dress.
Portman really ticks me off because he was a DOMA co sponsor, wasn’t he? I respect him for loving his son. I disrespect him for betraying those he was elected to serve in the name of showing love for his son and others like him. If you have to break a pledge to millions of people to show support for someone, it ain’t love. It’s corruption.
My Ohio relatives who voted for him will be p*ssed.
>>>One of my cousins is a lesbian and my uncle still opposes gay marriage. Shes still his daughter and they have a close relationship but his principles are firm.>>>
That’s leads to exactly what I wanted to say. Why couldn’t Portman say that he’s close to his son although he still disagrees with SSM?
I hear ya! I need to give this recall thing more thought and I’m glad you brought it up, thanks.
