According to WorldNetDaily, Republican California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger encouraged opponents of the Proposition 8 not to give up until the measure is overturned.
“It is unfortunate, obviously, but it’s not the end,” vowed the governor in yesterday’s interview, referring to Proposition 8’s passage, “because this will go back to the courts.”
He later said of the voter-approved state constitutional amendment defining marriage between one man and one woman, “We will undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward.”
Has this guy totally lost it? Not only is he going against his own Catholicism and his own party but now he’s going against the will of the people.
I know what he’s thinking. He’s thinking that he could earn himself a slice of the liberal vote by kow-towing to their desires on social issues. This guy is one of my worst fears. Because I’ve already heard rumblings from the Republican Party that they’re taking the exactly wrong lessons from the past two elections. I’ve heard from a few people that Republicans need to “moderate” their stances on the social issues in order to woo the moderates and liberals. This is the exact wrong lesson. I fear the Schwarzanegger-ing of the Republican Party. If the party follows the path of the former movie star I will be without a party and so will many people I know.
The Republican Party will either be led by the Sarah Palin/Bobby Jindal wing of the party or the Ahh-nuld/Rudy Giuliani wing. Let’s pray they make the right choice.
