    Kerry Warms to Gay Marriage at San Fran Fund Raiser

    Likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry all but endorsed gay marriage last week, saying in comments that went unreported till Thursday that a Kerry administration would bestow over 1,000 federal benefits to gays who marry where the law allows.

    Sen. Kerry, who had previously claimed he opposed same-sex marriage, told a gay fund raiser in San Francisco on Friday that he would bestow a grand total of 1,049 federal benefits - such as the right to file joint income taxes and collect survivor benefits - to same-sex couples who unite legally in civil unions, domestic partnerships and even marriage under their state laws.

    "It's the first time in history that a presidential candidate has ever supported full and equal protection for same-sex couples," said state Rep. Mark Leno, an early Kerry supporter who grilled the candidate on the issue at the event, in comments to the Washington Post.

    In response to his question, Leno said, the leading Democrat promised he would grant "all 1,049 federal rights to same-sex couples in whatever legal union their states recognize."

    It seems this liar changes his tune depending on who he is pandering to. Very sad.

    Notice how the media keeps this hush hush. Everything Kerry does is golden and somehow have Americans convinced that changing ones mind is acceptable....but how do you know he wont change his mind once in office? At what point do voters ask themselves - what does this man stand for???

    However this may all blowup in Kerrys face come election time. The media not only publicly endorses this no stand man but illuminates everything he does while constantly critizing Bush. Take the 9/11 images for instance. The Kerry camp is critizing Bush for using 9/11 while Kerry uses Vietnam to promote himself. At what point do you think to yourself - what does Kerry really stand for? If its okay for him, it is not okay for anyone else?

    Many people are becoming sick of the media playing up to Kerry...too much praise...can hurt you in the end....remember the ole saying ... if it sounds too good to be true, it is....

    I hope Americans see through this.

    If you are only voting for Kerry to vote Bush out than vote for Nader. Why are you voting for someone of whom you do not know what they stand for? Where will he lead us?

    :rotflmao: Good one Kerry! I bet Rove about pissed his pants with delight when he heard kerry won the nomination.

    I think Kerry has a little more of a right showing the vietnam ads because he fought in vietnam.

    Kerry lost that right when he lied about war atrocities he supposedly "saw." The man only served in country for 4 months. That is 1/3 a tour of duty. That is not all that much time. Plus Kerry was in the navy. He got to back to a ship and eat a hot meal more often than not. Most infantry men in Nam didn't have the Luxuries of Kerry. Also Bush was Pres, during 9-11. It was his leader ship that got us through the whole thing and now he can't even use it. Piss off. That is fucking ridiculus. Kerry is complanig because he can't attack the Pres. on that issue.
    So he's calling foul!!!!! What a whiny Bitch!!!!!!:p:

    I asked this question the last time you accused Kerry of flip-flopping...where's the flip-flop? Kerry has always supported civil unions will full legal protection and equality. He still opposes gay marriage. There is NO flip-flop here. Zero, zip, zilch, nada, none.

    And at least Kerry served...Bush went AWOL from the National Gaurd. He walked off the base so he could campaign for one of his daddy's friends. What about people who served in Vietnam for only four months because they were wounded?

    No the records haven't been released because Bush had his henchman destroy them. That is a well established fact. Right-wingers always try to pain democrats as anti-military because we don't support crap like Star Wars and building more weapons than the Pentagon even asks for. Kerry has voted consistently to support our troops, including giving them raises. Democrats want our country to have the best-equipped, best-trained military force in the world. Republicans want to waste money on Star Wars and pentagon pork projects instead of giving our troops raises so they don't have be on foodstamps.
