    I reiterate, le sigh.

    I'm fed up with passing the buck and cowardice.
    I was responding to MadZealot's remark. Your remark is the correct one instead of his.

    What I found odd in the article I linked to was a same-sex marriage advocate thought Christie had no anti-gay bones in him. (paraphrased for a bit of clarity).

    Altair, were there enough votes in the Legislature to override the veto? And was there anything else attached to the bill beyond legalizing same-sex marriage?
    As far as I know, the bill was clean. At present there aren't enough votes in to override the veto, but the good news is that, for some reason, in NJ the legislature has nearly 2 years to put together the votes to override that veto. With the rapidity with which opinions on this issue are evolving, that may be doable. Eventually.

    That may be so. But he no doubt has national political aspirations, and as a Republican that means one must kowtow to the extreme right on issues like same-sex marriage.

    This is one of the reasons why, even if politicians are considered "moderate" or "pro-gay" Republicans, I will almost never support them. The party itself has become so extreme that on numerous issues it forces anyone who wants a future within its structure to veer right.
