First Family in Discord?

It was an interesting moment several weeks ago, when Laura Bush stated that gay marriage should not be used as a political tool in the election season. It was interesting because it is about the only thing that might actually work for the Republicans in the coming elections in November—think on that, it might work. It becomes more interesting when other people write about this debate, which presumably takes place in the White House residence rather than the West Wing. Insight magazine writes about this debate, mentions Cheney's position—who for once doesn't seem to get it his way—but focuses on the Laura-George debate.

What I don't believe is that we are speaking about innocent interviews by the first lady who than speaks her mind, oops. She knew she should say this, because once again, the Bush government wants to have its cake and eat it too. They want to hang the sausage in front of the Christian Right, get them angry and voting for them, but then they don't deliver. Or perhaps they really don't want the amendment, because once it passes the issue is over. Just like they don't want Roe v. Wade to be turned over. You know that Hillary Clinton will be our next president if that happens. They need these issues alive to keep the anger flame up. If they really win these issues, the anger flame will burn on the left, which is not where they want it.
