Following the gay marriage debate in New York, Stephen H. Miller observes:
What’s going on in the New York marriage struggle shows why winning over Republicans (even just a few!) matters greatly. But those who run our leading LGBT political lobbies still seems to be firmly committed to a one-party strategy. Their identity politics is all bound up in being Democrats.
With Steve’s words in mind, I was wondering how HRC’s leadership thinks they can influence members of the majority caucus (you know those who set the agenda, chair the committees) in the U.S. House of Representatives now that the group has endorsed Barack Obama for reelection before the first ballots have even been cast in the contest for the GOP nomination.
I mean, isn’t part of their work lobbying our federal legislators? And showing just how eager you are to back one party’s standard bearer is not likely to endear your organization to the opposing party’s leadership. Just sayin’, ya know?
