Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, were the official witnesses of a same-sex marriage between two women in Maine over the weekend…

The former first couple witnessed the private ceremony on Saturday in Kennebunk between Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, according to Jim McGrath, a Bush spokesman.

Clement posted a photograph on her Facebook page of President Bush signing a piece of paper as the couple, close friends of the Bushes, watched and held champagne glasses…

Maine is one of 13 states that allows gay marriage.

In June, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act, which barred same-sex couples from federal marriage benefits. But the high court declined to rule on whether gay men and lesbians have a fundamental right to marry, leaving it to states to decide.

The ruling has led to legal challenges in federal and state courts to laws that restrict the rights of gays and lesbians.

Several other notable Republicans have voiced support for gay marriage, including former Vice President Dick Cheney and Ohio Senator Rob Portman.

But same-sex marriage is opposed by most Republicans. A Gallup poll in July found 66 percent of Republicans were against making same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.

Good for you, George. You ain’t running for re-election, anyway. You probably won’t even be invited to the convention.

    The only person in America who when asked his whereabouts during the Kennedy assassination, is suddenly stricken with amnesia.

    • Captain Obvious says:

      You’re full of shit. The Illuminati and the KGB were behind the assassination. Any 3 year old can see that.

  2. Retread says:

    Why is this so surprising to anyone? Have you seen his wife?! :-D

    A much more believable and credible witness might have been someone like Janet Reno or even Dick Cheney. But that probably wouldn’t have made the news unless someone were accidentally shot or something. (BTW, Cheney’s daughter is gay too …and I’m not sure one of them in that picture isn’t her.)

    …And you probably thought all Republican’s were such staunch religious fundamentalists incapable of acceptance. Try asking Obama where his friend Reverend Wright is these days! FYI: Reverend Wright is the very same guy Obama said he liked who was also quoted as having said,”god damned America”!

    Funny how human people can be when they’re not running for office.

      Well that is a good point. An educated, experienced person that is not beholden to special interest groups is a tough candidate to find.

      I could be that person but sadly nobody has discovered me.

    Still say that when they become president..
    Someone STICKS A GUN in there face and tells them to THINK ABOUT KENNEDY and his family….
    Accidents happen..

    • jpfitz says:

      My exact scenario of what happens when a sitting President doesn’t go along with THE “plan”. Odd or unnerving that we have the exact same scene unfolding in the oval office or outside where no “recording” would be going on. I wonder what percentage of the country feels the same way.

      The 41st doesn’t remember where he was when JFK was assassinated. Uh, suspicious?

      Former President Bush has publicly stated he does not remember where he was on November 22, 1963, the day President Kenney was assassinated; and no prosecutor has interrogated him as to his ties to DeMohrenschildt and Murchison—part of Nixon’s “Texans.”

        Standing in front of that bogus school-book building in Dallas {eww} is pretty forgettable.

    I just really hate that man — I can’t wait to dig his skull up and force a pig to smoke pot out of it.

        • jpfitz says:

          I searched for an image of a pig, smoking pot, from a skull, and ended up with the youtube vid cause the apple… you know.

          I’m curious, what portion did you make away with.

            Have a little respect for the shadow government — The mother fucker is not even officially dead yet.

    Thats disgusting for him to watch those two old women having sex.

  7. sargasso_c says:

    I think it is very sweet that people can put aside their differences and celebrate the devotion of love. Just, not in a church.

  8. Today we have same sex weddings. Tomorrow we have animal human weddings..
    This world is crazy!

  9. Rose says:

    The people in this world are foolish. Today there are same sex wedding and all are happy. Time is not far when humans will marry animals and will live happily and animals will live in houses and humans will be freely moving in jungles.

    Everyone knows that George is gay. Just look at the guy he married.
