So, New York has a $10 billion budget deficit, and what’s preoccupying Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature? Redefining civil marriage to include same-sex couples.
That betrays an inglorious double standard in liberalism and the media. When Republican-controlled legislatures enact pro-life or pro-family laws during the Great Recession, they’ve veered off course from a focus on fiscal priorities. If liberals do it, they get a pass.
That scenario has cropped up in my home state of North Carolina, where the GOP-led legislature recently made us the third state to cut off funding for the abortion-provider Planned Parenthood. The refrain from Democrats? Republicans are side-tracked by social issues.
What happened in New York? Somehow, not a distraction.
Bonus: Looks like Cuomo already has his sights on a higher office for 2016.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
