Dems Beware

Here’s a scenario that would have sounded laughable a year ago but no longer seems implausible. Imagine the year 2016. Republicans appeal to LGBT voters by claiming responsibility for ushering in marriage equality throughout the nation. They point out that a Republican judge, a Republican governor and a Republican attorney were instrumental in repealing Prop 8, while the Democratic president did everything he could to stall progress on an important civil rights advance.

It could happen, Dems.
