    Rick Perry signaled Tuesday that if elected president, he would be open to reinstating the "don't ask, don't tell" law that banned openly gay individuals from serving in the military.

    What part of his campaign comes from another country? Does this dolt not understand that an overwhelming MAJORITY of voters approved and demanded this?

    This idiot is a tool.

    If he gets elected, I hope he either changes his mind or dies.

    The reason, which is popular on this site, is that being gay is just one aspect of who they are. Issues that fiscal conservatives care about apparently matter more.

    I don't know about the next guy, but if any one aspect of who I am was being attacked, I wouldn't take it lightly, especially since we are talking about civil rights.

    In other words, the conservaposse wants to protect their financial interests even if it means being relegated to 2nd class status.

    Perry isn't going to be the nominee anyway --- and this would be one of many reasons why.

    Numbers don't lie, buddy boy. Of course I'm confused how almost 4k people disliked it, when only 308 watched it.

    Gingrich is as homophobic as Perry and Romney, while less vitriolic, support the same policies (reinstate DADT, no gay marriage, etc.).

    Perry isn't the nominee because he made Bush Jr. seems bright and articulate. icon_lol.gif

    On top of all else, Jesus tells us to keep religion private, and not to parade it around in public, hoping for approval. So I guess Rick's never actually read any of that...

    But it doesn't matter if something is true or not, just whether you believe it...

    What an idiot.

    My idiot uncle's second wife (now deceased) was a pillar of the Republican establishment in Georgia, and a close personal friend of Newt's. She was also very fond of me, since I was the only one in the family who was nice to her when she married my uncle (insert long boring story here).

    She invited my then-bf and me to come visit them in Atlanta, back in 1995, and said that she would have the Gingriches over to dinner so we could meet them. "You''ll love them," she gushed at me.

    I pointed to my boyfriend, of whom she was also fond, and said, "Newt doesn't like people like us, I'm afraid."

    "Oh, don't be silly," she said dismissively. "Newt loves gay people. He just has to say that stuff to get elected."

    "Ah, that makes all the difference," I said, though my tone was lost on her. "No thanks, I believe we'll pass."
    Which is a disgusting display of inhumanity and cowardice.

    My sentiments exactly.

    Cowardice enables these sociopaths to move about freely without fear of confrontation. Do gays who get harassed, beaten, killed, Civil Rights denied, or teens who get bullied from all sides, until they take their own lives....count for less than a slimy demagogue, surrounded by a small gaggle of social climbers?

    "Just having to say that stuff" has a tragic cost to humanity...and for what benefit???....so Newt can call himself a leader...a congressman...an intellectual? And then there is the spectacle of JP's aunt associating with such human trash...lying about believing the lie, told to explain the lie, that is told to keep the public believing anti-gay lies....which are all too often acted upon.

    If you're too chicken to expose lies and tell it like it is when a perfect opportunity arises....then "Disgusting display of humanity and cowardice" is spot on accurate...and at best, you'll go to your grave having led an inconsequential life.

    Rick Perry is full of hot gas.

    Who was it that said only hypocrites publicize their religion it is better to pray unseen and in private?

    Oh, yeah: Jesus.

    I'm mystified as to what matters more to an American than freedom. Some people would rather be slaves, as long as they don't get a tax hike. Stupid.
