We’ll Miss President Gerald Ford
President Gerald Ford was the kind of Republican we’d like to see more of.
Back in 2001 he told the Detroit News:
… the federal government should provide the same benefits for same-sex couples and married couples.
His comments make him the highest-ranking Republican ever to publicly support equal treatment for same-sex couples.
Ford told Detroit News columnist Deb Price in a telephone interview that the provisions should include Social Security, tax and other federal benefits.
“I think they (same-sex couples) should be treated equally. Period,” he said.

I’m grateful for his honesty and candor. So why is this such a brain teaser for so many other folks again?
