 John Boehner: Republican Party should support gay candidates
By: Jake Sherman
December 5, 2013 12:03 PM EST

Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates, and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women.

“Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said.



When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”

The answers were in response to two POLITICO stories, one which said Republicans were working on strategy to run against women candidates and another that reported Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) was urging the National Republican Congressional Committee to withhold money from gay candidates.



Boehner (R-Ohio) said bluntly that “when you look around the Congress, there are a lot more females in the Democrat caucus than there are in the Republican caucus.”

Oh, sweet heavens. Just what we need. A GOPe publically apologizing for Republicans rather than going on the attack toward Democrats.

We will never triumph so long as our "leadership" is on the defensive and allowing the Left to set the terms of the debate.

Yo! Boo Hoo!

Point of order. Should we support them Because they are gay? Or female? Or, how about because they represent conservative values. What a tick turd... :shrug:

One cannot serve both conservative values and the gay agenda at the same time. Of course, speaking ill of the gay agenda in modern society is politically disastrous, since the masses have been suckered into it 100%.

Supporting a gay Republican candidate has absolutely nothing to do with the liberal gay agenda.
