A Defining Moment

In ten years we will look back at this and realize how truly pathetic Bush was.

The Constitution and Bill of Rights were created to give people freedoms and liberties. No amendment will pass out of Congress, but it will get a lot debate. And with debate, rational people will realize that it is foolish to even propose such an idea as this, which really is an attempt to put hate and discrimination into the Constitution. The Civil Rights movements of the past hundred years has been using the Constitution to show that hate and discrimination has no place in America, and the founding fathers sought to ensure that.

But for some potential political gain, Bush is willing to support the idea of a Constitutional amendment to prevent Americans from pursuing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It makes you wonder if Bush has actually read the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
