    Karl Rove: 'I Could' Imagine Next GOP Presidential Nominee Supporting Gay Marriage

    Karl Rove: 'I Could' Imagine Next GOP Presidential Nominee Supporting Gay Marriage <-- hahaha

    Fox News contributor and former Bush deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said this morning on "This Week" that he can imagine the next Republican nominee for the White House supporting gay marriage.

    "I could," Rove said on the "This Week" roundtable.

    Rove's comments came days after Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman, whom Mitt Romney considered as a running mate in the 2012 election, announced that he had shifted his position and supported gay marriage. The vast majority of Republicans in Congress do not support same-sex marriage. Portman is the only sitting senator in the GOP to support same-sex marriage.

    Things could get real fun on the right over the next few years....

    The amount of irony of Karl Rove giving an indirect endorsement to a GOP presidential candidate who will support same sex marriage while he fashioned the campaign of George W. Bush around social issues such as prohibiting same sex marriage may just be enough to crack the fault lines of the tectonic plates and cause the destruction of the planet Earth.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I'd love to see a Republican Presidential nominee endorse same sex marriage.

    The far right evangelicals will absolutely crap themselves.

    Bryan Fischer and Tony Perkins will have a ****ing stroke.

    I thought the evangelicals would put the stop to Romney cause he is a cultist. I dont think they have the power they once did.

    Haha... My sister said for the GOP to have success they need to support "gay marriage."

    IMO, as a libertarian the government shouldn't recognize marriage. Marriage should be treated as contract law.

    I will say I really do dislike gays that flaunt their homosexuality in public like it's somehow normal and are trying to make a political point or piss people off just to do it..

    I think Ken Mehlman also deserves a mention. A gay Republican who previously helped the right-wing's push on the DOMA issue, but now stands on the other side of the aisle.

    I think Karl is simply recognizing some demographic shifts that the right-wing needs to address and change for. If not, it will cost them in the future.

    I think we are seeing the beginning of a split in the republican party, perhaps even a viable third party. My belief is you'll have the republican party which will be democrat lite, and then you'll have a true conservative party who stand on principle and believe in small government. Right now the repubs are in a shambles and don't know what to stand for.
    Politics I supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
