    as other issues. That's quite plain in the comments from them here today. They devalue this kind of thing, in favor of their own agenda. They CONTINUALLY, dismiss the Democrats obvious leadership on social issues. It's always acknowledged by a "yeah, BUT" w/out a moment's pause to respect the HUGENESS of what "social issues" mean.

    Tell you one thing I'd be willing to bet on. Not a ONE of them has a gay son, daughter, brother, sister or friend, that means as much to them as their dearly held beliefs that it's really the Democrats who are to blame, from Obama on down.

    I'm very sick of it. I'm willing to and HAVE acknowledged my differences w/the president here OFTEN. I don't see this in reverse, except for the casual dismissal of that which they can't argue.

      Regardless of where their priorities lie and the importance of an issue (or lack thereof) I don't see them building a movement -- ANY movement. Their actions serve to do nothing but tear down.  I don't understand them or their goals.
