Laura continues to beat around the Bush on gay marriage as she tries to sell her book

Why doesn’t Laura Bush just come right out and say that she supports same-sex marriage? The former first lady appeared on “Fox News Sunday” in what is said to be the first interview conducted in the couple’s new Preston Hollow home. Host Chris Wallace asked Bush whether she supports gay marriage. She gave pretty much the same response she gave last week when asked the same question by CNN’s Larry King:

“What I really believe is that it’s something that is so difficult,” Bush told Wallace on Sunday. “It’s a very, very difficult issue for very many people because the marriage between a man and a woman is so fundamental to our civic life for all of our history, for the history of humans. And it’s a debate that I think people want to have, and I hope they have it in a way that protects people. And in many ways, I think it’s generational and that gay marriage will come. I’m OK with that.”

Laura was also asked about her views on “don’t ask don’t tell,” and she told Wallace she doesn’t have an opinion about it. “Well I think that’s just something else that the military and the legislators are going to have to talk about and figure out what is really best for the United States military,” she said.

It seems more and more like Laura’s comments on same-sex marriage are just designed to create a stir and drum up publicity for her book. She’s never actually said that she supports same-sex marriage, and now she isn’t even sure about DADT. Until she actually does something tangible to support LGBT equality, it’s all just talk — talk designed to sell books, because Preston Hollow ain’t cheap. If Laura feels so strongly about gay rights, maybe it’s time for her to start appearing at fundraisers for LGBT groups in Dallas. It would be a small step toward undoing some of the tremendous harm inflicted by her husband on the community.

More from Laura Bush on gay marriage

Dallas resident and former first lady Laura Bush told CNN’s Larry King on Tuesday that she supports equal rights for same-sex couples. King asked Bush about a passage from her recent book in which she said she asked her husband not to make a “significant issue” out of gay marriage during the 2004 campaign. The full clip is above. Here’s my transcript:

King: “Do you think we should have it (gay marriage)?”

LB: “I think that we ought to definitely look at it, and I’ve debated. I think there are a lot of people who have trouble coming to terms with that because they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a woman, but I also know that when couples are committed to each other and love each other, they ought to have, I think, the same sort of rights that everyone has.”

King: “So would that be an area where you (and George) disagree?”

LB: “I guess that would be an area that we disagree. I understand totally what George thinks and what other people think about marriage being between a man and a woman, and it’s a real reversal … to accept gay marriage.”

King: “But you do?”

LB: “But I think we could. I think it’s also a generational thing.”

King: “You think it’s coming?”

LB: “Yeah, that (it) will come.”сайтраскрутка сайта в социальных с етях

Laura Bush says she asked George not to make gay marriage 'a significant issue'

Dallas resident and former first lady Laura Bush’s memoirs, “Spoken from the Heart,” won’t be released until next Tuesday, but The New York Times and Politico are already reporting on some of the contents. According to Mike Allen at Politico, one memorable passage appears on Page 303:

“In 2004 the social question that animated the campaign was gay marriage. Before the election season had unfolded, I had talked to George about not making gay marriage a significant issue. We have, I reminded him, a number of close friends who are gay or whose children are gay. But at that moment I could never have imagined what path this issue would take and where it would lead.”

Let’s just hope those “close friends” aren’t friends at all anymore.
