WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday he supports gays being able to marry but believes states, not the federal government, should make the decision.
"I think, you know, freedom means freedom for everyone," Cheney said in a speech at the National Press Club. "I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish, any kind of arrangement they wish."
Cheney, who has a gay daughter, said marriage has always been a state issue.
"And I think that's the way it ought to be handled today, that is, on a state-by-state basis. Different states will make different decisions. But I don't have any problem with that. I think people ought to get a shot at that," he said.

the only reason he goes that far on this issue is BECAUSE his daughter is gay. if not, he'd be echoing the other buttwipes on the right.

Sounds like Cheney makes some decisions based on his own life experience.
..Too bad the Right wing doesn't see the sense of that when it comes to Sotomayor.

States should get all their rights back and Texas needs to become five states. The feds need to butt out and let us decide.

Dear Dick,

RETIRE, fuckhead! Go sit on your waterfront property in Maryland and catch some crabs. You are OLD NEWS, or maybe just OLD.

Geezer buttwipe.

Where the hell was this clown while he held office? I mean seriously! He gets more press/releases more statements now than he ever did while he was the VP. He's a flathead.

Privatize marriage...That way, ANYONE can do it.
Seems to me if America is about freedom - as we like to claim that it is - you could marry any other sentient being you wanted. The real issue is what it has always been: Equal justice for all and special privileges for none.
NO human government is ever going to completely offer that - It would eliminate the market for favors and special privilege!!!

He is a fucktard. Period.

My money's on his daughter bobbitting him. Ya know. Just for shits and giggles. And payback. For being a fucktard buttroy.

What an idiot. All this "state level" garbage is meaningless if we don't get federal recognition for our relationships...the exact SAME way that straight, married people do. Fucktard.

Dick is a dick. It's nice he supports his daughter, but if it was my daughter, he'd be an asshole and quote the bible.

Dick Cheney being *for* anything almost makes me want to be against it.

Dick and Newt are the right-wing version of Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank: They open their yappers just long enough to change feet.
Fuck off and die!
