  •  Why, exactly, was Conway 'tearful'? (0+ / 0-)

    Maybe a stupid question but I know nothing about him.

    I'm guessing because he is teh sad at not opposing the ruling...

    As for Beshear: guess who's running against Randy (or whoever runs in his stead) in '16...

      he was okay with marriage in 2010, and his stated opposition was a device to keep from losing in a whopping landslide.

    •  Conway was tearful (he was indeed crying over this (5+ / 0-)

      because he does have political aspirations in Kentucky, and he knows this may end them.

      He is also a Christian, he stated he is refusing to do this based upon his religious beliefs (of equality and fairness), and every other "Christian" in Kentucky is now attacking him.

      I have no idea, but I'd imagine the others in his church may even outcast him.

      This is quite a thing to bring down upon his head, and his families head, in Kentucky.  I am very proud of Conway.  He is a good man.

      "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.

      tearful just reading his statement because it really did seem heartfelt. He probably struggled to come out on the right side of the issue, knowing the politics of the state. In the end, he did.

    •  Ok, thanks guys/gals (0+ / 0-)

      I said I was guessing, and I was wrong.

      The consensus seems to be that he was conflicted. Between his self-interest and his beliefs.

      So not a saint, but a good guy in the end. If that's the case, I wish him well.

      Sorry I didn't answer each of you individually, but three slightly different takes... what could I say?
