Another notch in O'Malley's belt for his planned race for POTUS. Don't fool yourself. This is all about politics in MD and trying to elevate O'Malley. And those crocodile tears - bs.
this issue is a given in the blue states but what about the swing states ......
he has made his 2 biggest issues this year gay marriage and some of the largest tax increases in the country .....
Boy Wonder will find on the National Stage that the rest of the Country is not true blue like Maryland. After Obama I don't like the chances of another big spending liberal being elected President. He'll after Obama there won't be any money left to spend.
Gotta get out of the primary first. This will help him in the primaries.
But I have a hard time a Maryland Dem could ever become President. One thing I've learned since moving out here is that Maryland is reviled in middle America.
I would say it's fringe America... just as Maryland (and New York, Massachusetts, and the West Coast states) could be considered fringe America - but with many more people.
My idea of "middle America" is something like Ohio or Missouri.
In any case - re Maryland being "reviled" out there - I would imagine that Maryland is as off-the-radar for most Montanans as Montana is for most Marylanders.
time for a real 3rd party
dems will be screaming over defense cuts too its their bread and butter for home district fed money--- remember Murtha? Most are the same just not quite as open and noticeable about it. They'll scream long and hard for budget cuts but just wait until a base is to be closed in their district or a weapon program shut down where a major contractor is in their district- this is true for both parties
this whole charade is just another example of big government trying to solve a problem it created.....
government shouldn't be in the marriage business, leave it to the churches ......
the problem is that government conveys special rights to folks because they are married .......
its just government social engineering to have different tax laws and other policies for married people, etc.......
Why some delegates changed their vote to yes.
Now, I'm not so sure about the need for a marriage certificate unless the child was not legally his and his partner could not be there to enroll the child.Olszewski, who is seeking a doctorate in public policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, said he was "dumbfounded" that gay couples could not marry but convicted rapists and murders can. And, he noted, the Scriptures do not allow those who are divorced to remarry, but society — and state law — permit it.
The constituent, whom Beidle would not identify, is gay with two children and in a domestic partnership. An Anne Arundel charter school had admitted one child but was demanding a marriage certificate to enroll the second.
Del. Wade Kach was seated near members of the audience and overheard them--and realized we are dealing with families here.
