The differences in the left and right have been so very clear the last couple of days. The president made the very courageous statement that he supports marriage equality. No big surprise since he has supported other gay issues all along. Mitt lies about being a bully when he was 18 years old. In his first statement, he had the nerve to laugh about it. Then, presumably after a human being told him its poor form to laugh about physically assaulting a classmate, he offered up one of those not-really-apologies - "IF I offended anyone .." etc. Truly shameful behavior followed by truly shameful lack of remorse or morals. The rw's attacked the president for supporting very basic rights guaranteed by our Constitution while they made excuses for Mitt's bullying. The right says they want more and more intrusive laws to control American citizens. More laws, bigger government, fewer rights and a lot fewer freedoms. In a nutshell, that's the difference between right and left. The left values the Constitution and civil liberty while the right just wants to own and control behavior.
