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.

Hat tip to Pams Houseblend.

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