Good news for the future of the republican party. Good news for being on the right side of history.

As the youthful republicans evolve to the middle on this, maybe they could on a few other things as well. This kind of social stuff is a deep burden. If they figured it out, they could capture a massive voter base and just leave the far right in the dust. Don't tell that to FOX.

The defense of marriage act in California was overwhelmingly supported by Black Christians and Hispanic Immigrants FYI. The socially conservative Democrat voters might just turn on their handlers when the nation runs out of other peoples money.

ps just last week 1000 black pastors called for Obama's impeachment because he supports gay marriage.

Plus, they don't like the way he ties his tie. And if that's not an impeachable offense, then I don't know what is.

Speaking of polls-
Quote:
President Barack Obama is struggling to overcome widespread pessimism about the economy and deep frustration with Washington, notching the lowest job-approval ratings of his presidency in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. Patrick O'Connor discusses.

I've noticed the steep uptick in negativity, particularly with respect to unrest in the world and the recent Russia/Ukraine events. So many in the media are like hungry attack dogs. Really, it's all about the questions. I even find NBC's David Gregory particularly aggressive with questions fishing for wild sensationalism. It's a Fox News type style that's growing these days. Arguably, made up news contrived for a 24/7 world.

This year is going to be chock full of ways to make President Obama and his administration look weak and crippled for a myriad of specious reasons. Full speed ahead in casting the ACA as a complete failure to undermine the positions of Democratic candidates in the 2014 election. With the money in politics today, the propaganda machine will be huge. Created news crafted to target different interest groups.

You know what I find ironic? It's the fact that virtually all poll outcomes show absolutely dismal ratings for Republicans politicians in Washington. Why everyone thinks that Republican candidates would be winners simply amazes me.

That was the situation just before the last elections. No Pres had ever been elected in that situation in American history.
He won both elections for the same reason.
Folks voting against the Republican Party.
Right after the election many GOP said the same.
Then the fake news kicked in and pretended it was welfare people who voted for him.
Welfare people seldom vote, of course, and GOP strategists know this. They don't get their info from the fake news, but are glad you guys often do.
