Gay Marriage Reversal: Which Republican Now Shows Support?

by at . Comments

Ohio Senator Rob Portman made a stunning announcement yesterday, telling CNN in no uncertain terms that he has changed his mind on a major political issue.

"I'm announcing today a change of heart on an issue that a lot of people feel strongly about that has to do with gay couples' opportunity to marry," Portman said.

What caused the change of heart for Portman, who was on Mitt Romney's short list of Vice Presidential candidates?

His 21-year old son is gay.

"I've come to the conclusion that for me, personally, I think this is something that we should allow people to do, to get married, and to have the joy and stability of marriage that I've had for over 26 years. That I want all of my children to have, including our son, who is gay," said Portman.

Portman learned this news two years ago and said his reaction was nothing but "love" and "support."

He told Romney, during the vetting process, that his child was homosexual and Romney's camp replied that it would not be a deal-breaker.

Portman also talked to Dick Cheney, whose daughter is a lesbian and who has not announced any kind of gay marriage support - and the ex-VP offered Portman simple advice:

"Follow your heart."

It looks like that it was Rob Portman has now done.

Where do YOU stand? Do you support the rights of gay couples to marry?

The Teabag Party was started by the minutemen and they were started by the KKK (these are the uneducated that believe the south will rise again). Now they control the GOP, who now want to send out coconuts with the same old GOP message of protecting the rich, because they no longer hold a lead on civil liberties because they were the ones who came up and passed the Patriot Act, they were the ones who kidnapped and waterboarded, they were the ones who passed vaginal ultrasound bills throughout the nation (but leave the child abandoned after birth), they are the ones who love hating the gays (even though some secretly practice it), they were the ones who passed minority voter suppression laws right before a national election. But hey keep doing, what you are doing, and the end game is clear, you are out, finished. I think the GOP has written off all minorities (who needs us, honestly who needs you!), but hey send out your coconuts, but don’t expect winning any elections. The GOP is reaping what they have sown!
