Democrats To Play MARRIAGE CARD At Convention
July 30, 2012

Will the Democratic Party unite and say, " I Do?"

Adding to the tinderbox nature of this  election year, the Democratic Party is preparing to endorse Gay Marriage at its upcoming national convention.  Do you think this will further polarize voters?  Democrats believe bringing this social issue center stage will mobilize their followers.  The bigger issue though?  Payback.

The White House has literally been “purchased” by gay activists and gay lobbying groups. The Equal Rights campaign, for one.  Hollywood donors for another.  But other big supporters of gay marriage like Apple, Google, Time Warner, Dreamworks, and other popular brands,which have all quietly or publicly invested deeply in Barack Obama’s election.  The object of their desire?  The United States Supreme Court.  Next year, when The Supreme Court considers the controversial California initiative, Proposition 8/Protect Marriage, they would very much like to see Barack Obama in The White House.  Especially, if there is an opportunity to “replace” one or more retiring Justices.

Proposition 8/Protect Marriage...the most contentious California initiative ever.

A lot is at stake in this election.  But what women are focusing on is THE ECONOMY.  Even so, there is a minefield of other liberal agendas driving this election.  Healthcare and marriage are just two of them.  Here’s The Washington Post on marriage and the Democrats:

“The Democratic Party is moving to include support for gay marriage in the official party platform for the first time, a Democratic official said Monday, marking a key milestone for advocates of same-sex unions.

The party’s platform drafting committee voted to include language backing gay marriage during a weekend meeting in Minneapolis, the official said. Democratic delegates will formally approve the platform during the party convention in Charlotte, N.C. in early September.

Will They Repeat?

President Barack Obama will officially accept his party’s nomination at the convention, which marks the start of the fall campaign blitz. Republican rival Mitt Romney will get the GOP nomination a week earlier during his party’s convention in Tampa, Fla.

Seeking to ramp up enthusiasm among Democrats, party officials said Sunday that former President Bill Clinton will deliver the nominating speech on Wednesday night of the convention. Obama and Biden are to speak on Thursday, the convention’s final night.

Several prominent Democrats began pushing earlier this year for support of same-sex marriage to be included in the convention platform, which lists principles the party supports. The effort got a boost in May when Obama voiced his personal support for same-sex unions.”

Do we really want MORE of this?

It will be of great interest to Conservatives….whether Democrats are willing to die on the hills of their most liberal causes.  We have less than one hundred days left before we know.
