Chet Culver declared that he believed marriage was between one man and one woman during the Democratic primaries in 2006.
Chet Culver repeatedly told people that he was a man of deep religious faith and that marriage was between one man and one woman in the 2006 general election.
Governor Chet Culver told the people of Iowa, “We’ll do whatever it takes to protect marriage between a man and a woman,” after the issue of gay marriage was taken up by the Iowa Supreme court in early 2008.
Yesterday, Governor Chet Culver decided that he would break his promise to the people of Iowa and side with the Iowa Supreme Court ruling that negates Iowa law and allows gay marriage in Iowa.
The people of Iowa now know that all of Culver’s talk about supporting traditional marriage was just that – talk. We now know that the radio ads his campaign placed on Christian radio stations were just a clever campaign tactic. And we now know that the TV ads with his kids on his lap reading the Bible, telling us that he’s a man of deep religious faith were just a marketing ploy to help him get elected.
We learned a lot about Governor Chet Culver yesterday. We learned that he is a total fraud.
If we can’t trust that Governor Culver is a man of his word on an issue like gay marriage after publically stating his position on it for years, how can we trust him when he says he will not raise our taxes, even during a recession?
While the media and websites like this one have had constant coverage of the repeal of federal deductibility and the Court’s gay marriage ruling, the real issue that will haunt Culver during his re-election campaign is trust. Once any politician loses the trust of the people he represents, his political career is over.
Governor Culver might want to look at Senator Chris Dodd’s polling numbers because the two will have a lot in common very soon.
