Fighting for Freedom over Religious Intolerance -- Not!
President Bush's endorsement of a gay marriage amendment yesterday means that he's certainly not the guy to lead us in fighting to defend our freedoms, and the Constitution, against religious extremists.
As reported by Dana Milbank in today's Washington Post:
"[A] Senate Republican with ties to the religious conservative movement said 'the last place Bush wanted to be' at this time in the electoral cycle was wooing his base of support. 'He should be coasting on being the war president and deliverer of tax cuts; instead, he has to take a divisive role on a contentious social issue that could undercut him as a compassionate conservative,' this official said.
Serves him right.
