We all know by now that Ms. Cheney is expecting a baby with her longtime partner. What we had not heard were comments from the Bush Administration regarding her pregnancy. Now of course, the reporters had to ask and it was up to GW whether or not he was going to answer the questions.
Well, yesterday.......through an interview with People Magazine and his spokesman Tony Snow...........he did.
People reports that Bush said ""I think Mary is going to be a loving soul to her child," Bush said in an interview with People magazine. "And I'm happy for her."
Tony Snow wrapped up the President's comments by saying while the President is happy for her he has not changed his own personal opinion that a child should be raised by a father and a mother. "But he also believes that every human life is sacred and that every child who comes into this world deserves love," Snow said. "And he believes that Mary Cheney's child will, in fact, have loving parents."
In other words, GW is saying - Sure glad it ain't my daughters.
Honestly, I could care less if Mary Cheney has one child or ten children. I personally do not think that she has helped the gay and lesbian climate in America. She had a podium to do so, but like her own father, she chose to take the "quiet road" and be the dutiful Republican to a christian right Bush Administration.
Mary Cheney's pregnancy was an opportunity for Dick and GW to clear away the hate and ignorance that is spewed upon gays and lesbians who want to be treated fairly and raise a loving family in peace.
Instead, we continue to have silence from all camps and it is "business as usual" until 2008.
