Do you feel used?

For those of you that thought voting for Bush would ensure that gay people couldn't get married, do you feel used? According to Washington Post, Bush is under fire from social conservatives for saying that he won't agressively lobby the Congress for a Constitutional Amendment.

Bush said he isn't like to push very hard because the support isn't there in the Congress. "It was not articulated that way in the campaign," Tony Perkins of Family Research Council complained.

Privately, some Bush advisers say the president is uncomfortable picking divisive political fights over abortion and same-sex marriage that cannot be won. Social conservatives agree it is an uphill fight in the Senate. But they worry Bush is undermining the chances before the second-term debate even begins. "It seems wrong to signal at the start of the new Congress that nothing is likely to happen,"

Bush and Karl Rove have played the evangelical vote for the fool. They have taken evangelical votes for granted. Bush appoints a pro-abortion co-chairman for the Republican National Committee, says he won't push the anti-gay marriage amendment, and is doing nothing to help the poor or downtrodden. Consider what Jesus said, "By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"

Voted for a anti-gay marriage amendment and now getting a privatized social security account? I don't want to say I told you so, but...
