Obama in Kansas

You think it's offensive to Missourians? It's more offensive to Kansans who don't want their state connected of Obama in any fashion. But you are right that it is totally disgusting that a website like Townhall can't figure out that LIBERTY, MISSOURI is actually in MISSOURI for God's sake. Do these headline writers read any of the story at all?
Marriage should have never become part of the issue. The major mistake was when certain Conservatives wanted to refuse same sex couples from receiving the same treatment on taxes, etc. as traditionally married couples. Had the Republicans at that time said, "Sure, they should be treated equally in that regard", we would have taken the primary issue of mistreatment away from the gay community. Marriage is between a man and a woman and there is no reason government shouldn't sanction it as that. It is in the best interest of the nation overall to do so. So give same sex couples the same "rights" to civil unions and the benefits of being united by civil union, but protect marriage for what it has been both traditionally and religiously.

The comments from Akin and others that you allude to were those of people who could only be classified as idiots. I don't care to have an idiot from any party serving in a national office, thank you. When are candidates going to be smart enough to view the landscape and be prepared to answer the "gotcha" questions that they know are going to come their way? Conservatives are not going to win elections on social issues. If asked, we can state our position that "based on my religious beliefs, abortion is wrong". They need to further state that they understand that the social issue in question cannot be decided by legislation, but the candidate will support judges who will judge using the Constitution as written as their guide.
