Turn Him Over; I Think He's Done on That Side
WASHINGTON - Vice pResident Dick Cheney said Tuesday he supports pResident Bush's call for a federal constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages, though one of his daughters is gay and he has said in the past the issue should be left to the states.What a day for the Dick. First, given their respective 'positions' (his and Dubya's), as well as a little compassionate conservatism for his own daughter, you'd think he'd stick to his previous stance on the gay marriage issue. Second, he's out stumping for the Dems. Yes, Democratic policies would have led to 'positive' job growth. You know, like 'being in the black' instead of the red. Geesh, for a financial wiz ...
'The pResident's taken the
clearposition that he supports a constitutional amendment,' Cheney said in an interview with MSNBC. 'I su pportck him.'
Cheney said during the 2000 campaign, and again last month, that he prefers to see states handle the issue of gay marriage. His openly lesbian daughter, Mary Cheney, is an aide in the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign, but the vice pResident declined to discuss her.
In his interview, the vice pResident also took a shot at the leading Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, and his chief rival, Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, who have skewered Bush over lagging job growth even as the economy improves.
"If the Democratic policies had been pursued over the last two or three years, the kind of tax increases that both Kerry and Edwards have talked about, we would not have had the kind of job growth that we've had," Cheney said.[Nitpicker's messing]
