The Origin of (Anti-)Specious: Clinton's marriage stance soon to walk upright?

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 7-174Yesterday at an event in Toronto, former President Clinton indicated that he, like so many fellow Dems who've politically opposed marriage equality regardless of their true personal feelings, is now "evolving" on the issue:

On the issue of gay marriage -- which Clinton, like President Obama, personally opposes -- Clinton said of his position: "Frankly, it's evolving" as he sees more committed gay couples raising kids.

But William J. didn't stop at teasing an eventual "I do." In addition to his marriage views, Clinton also expressed desire to see his era's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" evolve into fairness.

In a related story: Social conservatives have stepped up their opposition to evolution, now applying it to both dinosaurs and donkeys.

Your thoughts

...and I'm supposed to be impressed? He made a mockery of his own "marriage."

Yes, but I bet you that PResident Bush did not make such a stupid statement, nor will he give in to political pressure! Good for him. clinton simply has an agenda for his wife! They are hoping that Obama fails as PResident, and that way, they can try to get Hillary a following. If not in 2012, for sure in 2016.
