Commitment Requires Character

James McGreevey, the former New Jersey governor who announced he was gay and resigned from office when he was about to be outed, is applauding the state's Supreme Court.

The court has ruled that same-sex couples must be given the same rights as married people, but left it up to the Legislature to decide how to accomplish this.

McGreevey has the audacity to say, "Marriage would offer the ability to bless our relationship in a committed way."

What's McGreevey's record on commitment?

Well, his divorce is still not finalized, but that hasn't stopped him from living with Mark O'Donnell in what we may be reasonably certain is not a platonic relationship. Even when his marriage was intact, it didn't prevent him from having affairs. So what happened to his vows to his wife? So much for that commitment and that was his second marriage.

Although he claimed to be a devout Roman Catholic, he remarried without an annulment from his first marriage, is pro abortion and continues to carry on gay affairs. So much for the religious commitment.

He was accused by his homeland security adviser of sexual harassment and of offering money to make the pending lawsuit go away. So much for the oath of office commitment or any vestige of integrity at all.

All this will mean little to the looney liberals who think character doesn't matter. But, as Rush Limbaugh has said, "Character matters; leadership descends from character."

That is why the left is unfit to lead and why they must be turned away again in the next election.
