Ken Buck on MTP: Being Gay is a Choice
Ken Buck and Sen. Michael Bennet were on Meet the Press today. Ken Buck said homosexuality is a choice.
DAVID GREGORY: Do you believe that being gay is a choice?
KEN BUCK: I do.
DAVID GREGORY: Based on what?
KEN BUCK: Based on what?
DAVID GREGORY: Yeah. Why do you believe that?
KEN BUCK: I guess-- you can choose who your partner is.
DAVID GREGORY: You don't think it's something that's determined at birth?
KEN BUCK: I-- I think that-- birth has an influence over like alcoholism and some other things-- but I think that-- basically, you-- you have a choice.
Sen. Bennet called Buck an opportunist:[More....]
DAVID GREGORY: Is he [Buck] a political opportunist?
SENATOR MICHAEL BENNET: I think absolutely. I mean it-- I think it's very clear that he ran a primary election saying that he would privatize Social Security. That he demolish the Department of Education. That the American people need to wean theirselves off of student loans. That he supported the personhood amendment-- pro-life in all cases except for-- including cases of rape and incest. He's not changed his position on that.
And in the general election, even as recently as yesterday, he said, "Well, I-- I don't oppo-- I-- I don't support abolishing the Department of Education but I wouldn't oppose it if it came up for a vote." That's not the kind of straight talk that people in Colorado want…. The flip flops in this race are unbelievable.
