  • Does the W stand for "wedge"

    Whatever happened to the conservative touchstone that states and municipalities should have the right to govern themselves?

    Why would GWB make a public statement supporting amending the constitution to contract (rather than expand) citizens' rights, except to pander to the hard right pissed off at his spending and immigration policies?

    especially when one considers that amending the constitution is (appropriately) a monumental task involving Congress and the states - (and not the President)...

    Transparent, I hope, even to the hard right.

      I suppose you're unfamiliar with the words "Full Faith and Credit"?
      And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

        Of COURSE he's throwing a bone to the far right. And since the amendment will never pass, it's a no-risk deal.

        Now, if he starts seriously pushing it left and right, that'll be a different story.
