Dick Cheney Says YES to Gay Marriage

At a press conference today, when asked about his feelings on same-sex marriage:

“I think that freedom means freedom for everyone … I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish. Any kind of arrangement they wish.”

WOW. George W. Bush’s VP just went on the record supporting gay marriage. Isn’t it about time our current Democratic President did the same?

  • I don’t think this was always his stance. I think this is fairly recent. While he was in power I seem to recall him following the Conservative party line of hate.

  • The question of whether or not there ought to be a federal statute to protect this, I don’t support. I do believe that the historically the way marriage has been regulated is at the state level. It has always been a state issue and I think that is the way it ought to be handled, on a state-by-state basis.

    Extremely moderate view, IMO.

  • I may be rude when I say that all that came to mind when I saw that picture was: brokeback.

    • That was my immediate thought too.

      Sasha was on form with her image seeking skills for this one.

  • Fuck that piece of shit, war criminal bastard. The only good thing that can be said about Dick”Draft-Dodger” Cheney is that he’ll be dead some day.

    • And if he said the opposite, the comments section of this entry would be filled with the likes of you, you dumbshit. Its amazing how needle dick no talent ass clowns like yourself can hide behind a keyboard and spew hate and bullshit without having to be mocked, laughed at, and ridiculed like public officials. Grow up and grow a set. Did Obama or even Clinton sack up and join the military? Better yet, did you serve? Fucking moron! And before you start sifting through your talking points thinking of something to say, I did serve this country proudly and I am a registered Democrat.

    • Your eloquence is astounding. Unfortunately, it’s the sort of eloquence that belongs on Perez Hilton’s site, not this one.

  • It’s easy to come out with an opinion on controversial issues when you’re no longer trying to shore up support in a political campaign.
    Cheney has probably always supported equal rights in marriage (gay daughter) but couldn’t say so when trying to woo the Christian crazies that make up so much of the voting demographic. I’m sure Obama in his own heart also supports equal rights but doesn’t want to lose the nutter vote either.

  • As I have said TOO MANY TIMES TO COUNT, most Republicans are FOR gay marriage/civil unions but it is a STATE DECISION AND NOT A FEDERAL ONE. As for poster Alan, you need professional help and ditto to what JP said. You are the lowest of the low pieces of shit.

  • Dick Cheney Is a chicken-shit, office tough guy and desk jocky bully, who pissed away the lives of over forty-three hundred brave, young Americans (not to mention the ones who got their arms and legs blown off) in a vain attempt to purchase his manhood with their blood. He is a borderline psychotic who imagines himself to be somekind of heroic figure keeping this country safe as he stands atop imaginary ramparts with his imaginary M-16 ( what he would have used in the 60’s, if he had the balls to join the militay back then)in hand as he guards the country 24/7. Every word that dribbles out of his mouth is a lie.

    He falsely claims to have keep this country safe for the seven years following 9/11, but, the truth is that he is to a large extent responsible for the deaths of the almost three thousand people who died on that date. He was too busy having secret meetings with his cronies in the oil industry to read his national security briefings, until it was too late.

    • Don’t forget caused the deaths directly (and indirectly) of a million Iraqi civilians.

  • Cheney’s daughter, and war crimes apologist, is a lesbian and the family has never tried to hide the fact and it never hurt Machiavelli one bit in his political career. It’s a shame he waited until after he was out of office to make that statement, but really isn’t that exactly what you’d expect from a hypocrite?

  • I guess all of Dick “War Criminal” Cheney’s ass-kissing apologists have finished off their cases of cheap, domestic beer and are sleeping of their neo-con, pseudo-patriotic stupors.

    • So sorry, what were you saying? I was busy rubbing my balls on your avatar.

  • The kind of retort one would expect from a person of a certain intellect(or lack there of.)
