Scott Walker Repeats Calls for a Federal Marriage Amendment: VIDEO

Walker

Wisconsin Governor and GOP presidential hopeful Scott Walker repeated his calls for a federal marriage amendment preserving state bans on gay marriage in an interview with the conservative blog Caffeinated Thoughts, Right Wing Watch reports.

Walker said that if SCOTUS does rule for marriage equality “the only other viable option out there is to support a constitutional amendment, again, believing, I believe in not just in marriage being defined as one man and one woman, but I also believe in states’ rights. I think that’s an issue that appropriately belongs in the states.”

Dan Savage Mulls the Ridiculous GOP Gay Wedding Invitation Responses with MSNBC's Chris Hayes: VIDEO

Hayes_savage

Dan Savage joined MSNBC's Chris Hayes to have a cackle at the Republican candidates tripping over themselves to "correctly" answer the gay wedding invitation question including Scott Walker, Rick Santorum, John Kasich, and others.

But Savage has an additional query:

“It really calls the question of why you would invite someone to your wedding who didn’t think that you should have one. It’s like inviting someone to your birthday party who doesn’t think you should have another birthday....It's a little awkward!"

And then takes an overview of the situation:

"When it comes to flesh and blood and family vs base, a lot of Republicans are having a hard time now choosing base over family, and that's really the whole trajectory of the LGBT civil rights movement right there in a nutshell.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jon Stewart also had a take on it, which included a reference to Savage's infamous Google prank on Santorum's name. Watch that HERE.

Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio all visited New Hampshire this week and attempted to be relatable to the citizens of the Granite State.

Meyers just happens to be a New Hampshire native son, and saw through all their BS. He especially enjoyed the fumbling by Walker and Rubio over the issue of attending same-sex weddings.

Walker, if you'll recall, told reporters that he had attended a gay wedding reception but not the ceremony.

Meyers, called him out on it:

“Hey, we all want to just go to the reception. The open bar is the payment for sitting through the service. You sir, are a freeloader.”

Scott Walker Admits He's Attended a Same-sex Wedding Reception: VIDEO

Walker

Add Wisconsin governor and likely presidential candidate Scott Walker to the growing list of Republicans who've been asked "Would you attend a gay wedding?"

The New York Times reports:

“That’s certainly a personal issue,” Mr. Walker said at a brief news conference after addressing a gathering of New Hampshire Republicans here. Referring to his wife, he continued, “Tonette and I and our family already had a family member who’s had a reception. I haven’t been to a wedding. That’s true even though my position on marriage is still that’s defined between a man and a woman, and I support the Constitution of the state. But for someone I love, we’ve been at a reception.” The governor was away on business when the wedding occurred, but he later attended a reception for the newlyweds.

Last June, a cousin of Mrs. Walker, Shelli Marquardt, was married to her partner at Waukesha County Courthouse outside Milwaukee, according to media reports. The Walkers’ then-19-year-old son, Alex, served as a witness and signed his name to the marriage certificate.
