Presidential Pandering

President Bush proves that he's neither compassionate nor conservative (surprise!) as he voices his support for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

It's not compassionate because the measure is a hateful, bigoted attempt to deny rights and protections to loving couples simply because their relationships do not fit the narrowly proscribed Christian definition of marriage.

It's not conservative because it is, amongst other things, a "radical intrusion on the nation's founding commitment to federalism." For the conservative case against the FMA, see Dale Carpenter's post on the Volokh Conspiracy.
