WASHINGTON – House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) Thursday signaled that he would much rather talk about the Republican agenda than the President’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriages.

“The president can take about it all he wants, I’m going to stay focused on what the American people want us to stay focused on, and that’s jobs,” Boehner said during a press conference.

When pressed on his take over whether or not same-sex marriage is a civil rights issue, Boehner delivered a similar response, saying “I believe marriage is the union between one man and one woman. The President and the Democrats can talk about this all they want, but the he fact is that the American people are focused on our economy, and are asking the question ‘Where are the jobs’?”

Added Boehner, “Today, half of new college grads are not going to be able to find a job. In between a weak job market, fallen home prices, and the rising costs of living, the American people are getting squeezed. They are getting squeezed because President Obama’s economic policies have failed.”

  1. Can someone more intelligent than me please explain why those voters on the right of American politics (“libertarians”, whatever that means) simultaneously want less interference from “big government” whilst also trying to get government to determine what kind of marriage is acceptable? Surely the point of being freed from the constraints of government control also means that one must accept that others are free to do as they please? Such as two people of the same sex marrying one another?
