Chris Christie Vetoes Same-Sex Marriage Bill he has long promised.  Love the lede:

Same-sex marriage proponents were dealt a setback Friday, though not an unexpected one, when Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill that would let gay couples marry.

Of course, one might equally say that "traditional marriage advocates won a victory Friday", but since even straight news (no pun intended) is delivered from the left-hand side, the issue is framed rather, ah , "liberally"...


The Republican governor had long promised a veto. He said changes to the marriage law should be done only if approved by voters through a statewide vote, not through an act by lawmakers.
Democrats, who control both houses of the Legislature, said there would be no referendum, arguing that the rights of minority groups should not be put to a popular vote.

Well, that's consistent, at least.  Part of the allure of power -  for liberals -  is the creation of/destruction of certain rights depending on a group's support for progressive dogma.  Just ask the Catholics...

But what is this all really about?

Democrats noted that they have until Jan. 14, 2014, to take an override vote. Christie’s term as governor expires one week after that.

Politics.  Gays will get their "right" to marry if it is a winning election issue for the Left.  If polling moves the other way, progressive will drop they gay agenda quicker than you can say Barack Hussein Obama...
