Me, about thirty minutes ago:
Next meme: Arnold is better than Obama. Begins is 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…
Little did I know that Sully was already on it:
The Californian Republican gives out-of-state marriages the full force of civil unions and signs the Harvey Milk Day legislation. He has more of a record on gay rights than Obama. And no one is telling him they can wait till 2017.
Obama- worse than Republicans on gay rights!
Clearly what we need to do is have Obama do like Gavin Newsom and just make it all go away. Because that has worked out so well for California- so much so that Arnold is now a gay hero! And if he doesn’t do exactly what we want when we want it by executive fiat, why, then he THREW US UNDER THE BUS.
And Arnold didn’t “give” them anything. He signed a damned bill sent to him by… GASP.. the legislature. Somewhere I bet someone has been arguing that instead of throwing spitballs at Obama, they should pressure Congress to act. You remember all those money bombs the progressive left organized to support Gillabrand after her amendment was floated. You remember all the pressure on the other Senators to make this happen, don’t you? Then again, flaming POTUS is so much more fulfilling and better for traffic.
And is Sullivan implying Obama would veto bills sent to him by Congress overturning DADT and DOMA?
That is it. I am done with this stupidity.
*** Update ***
How soon they forget:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a same-sex marriage bill Friday, the second time in three years that such a measure died on the governor’s desk.
Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar bill in 2005.
“I support current domestic partnership rights and will continue to vigorously defend and enforce these rights,” the governor said in a statement Friday.
In his veto message, the Republican governor said it is up to the state Supreme Court and then, if necessary, voters to alter Proposition 22, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman in California.
Yeah. He is so much better than Obama on the issue. Arnold for President.
