Did he plagarize from NOM or was it the other way around? (PDF: 147KB/1 page

I am, of course, very disappointed with the very narrow defeat it appears we’ve suffered in each of these four states. It appears that we have lost by a point or two in each state. It’s important to consider that these battles occurred in a very difficult political landscape. We were contesting in four deep blue states and were outspent very badly in all of them – at least four-to-one, and greater in some states. I have to accept that losing in this very difficult political environment was always a real possibility.

“I firmly reject the spin surely to come that this result signals a fundamental shift in American opinion in support of gay marriage. It means that we very narrowly lost four difficult contests in four very deep blue states after being badly outspent. Despite the outcome, I am extremely grateful to all the donors, volunteers, staff, vendors and committee members who were part of our team. I am honored to have played a role in these campaigns to preserve marriage in America. It is an institution worth defending, and I look forward to continuing to play a role in this historic debate

… or 3.6 (Washington) or 4 (Maryland) or 4.8 (Minnesota) or 6.6 (Maine)

In other words “Pay me more money!”

And of course a 2 point win for them would have been a “resounding triumph for the will of the people”

Good. Go down with the ship then, Frankie.

By his own logic, he should have written off all the victories his side won by outspending the pro-equality side. Oh, he didn’t?

If marriage is an institution worth defending, then it is also worth expanding.
