Bush flip-flops on gay unions, mangles English

There he goes again...saying he's against something and then saying he's for it. And mangling the English language in the process.

Last we heard, Bush was pushing for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage; now he says he's in favor of states having the right to choose whether to allow civil unions. "I don't think we should deny people rights to a civil union, a legal arrangement, if that's what a state chooses to do so [sic],'' Bush said in an interview today on ABC.

Acknowledging that his position puts him at odds with the Republican platform, which opposes civil unions, Bush explained: "I view the definition of marriage different from legal arrangements that enable people to have rights. States ought to be able to have the right to pass laws that enable people to be able to have rights like others."

We agree. States also ought to be able to have the right to pass laws that enable us to be able to have a president who is able to speak English.
