Lee Fisher Flip-Flop

Filed under: Taxes & Government — Rose @ 11:26 pm

Mmmm-boy, nothing like competing for the gay lobby donations…

From the Dispatch:

Both Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate in 2010 now support gay marriage after Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher changed his opposition to it.

Fisher has joined Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner in supporting marriage equality for gay couples. Fisher previously had supported government recognition of civil unions but opposed granting gay couples the right to marry.

Fisher’s Senate campaign confirmed yesterday that he had switched his position and now supports gay marriage.

“The government should be focused on creating jobs, lowering health-care costs and moving us to alternative energy, instead of trying to stop individuals who want to be in a committed relationship and take responsibility for each other,” Fisher said in a statement.

Read the whole thing here.  Evidently, as recently as April, Fisher said he was opposed gay “marriage.” Guess that plan has been, dare I say “outed?”

What do they do…get up in the morning and flip a coin?  “Heads, I’m for gay marriage; tails, I’m against it.”

Best part about this is that I don’t see a problem for Portman or Ganley (who apparently does not have an official website).

  1. In other words, government dictating what kind of energy we can use (and what cars we can drive by extension) and what kind of health care we can get (which will inevitably lead to government deciding what we can eat and what activities we can pursue) is a legitimate use of power, but not allowing people to indulge their dysfunctions at any cost is just unacceptable!

    Fisher’s quote is hilarious, because only a lib like he can say such a sentence with it’s inherent and absurd contradictions and keep a straight face.

  2. Just to clarify, I don’t hate gays. I feel sorry for them. By misguided choice or by genetics they have a dysfunction, and unfortunately this dysfunction makes it hard or impossible for them to have a real relationship with members of the opposite sex. That said, that doesn’t give them the right to redefine marriage by getting hitched to each other. Civil unions are one thing, religious and spiritual joining is another.
