Credit where credit is due

My my, what a difference a few years can make. Megyn Kelly asks John Kasich what he would do if one of his children was gay. And Kasich answers from the heart. And that answer was music to this mama's ears, but even more therapeutic was the audience's reaction to his response. One thing is for sure, there's certainly been a sea change in attitudes on this subject in the past few years. Huffington Post recaps an ugly incident back in 2011 that still hurts to recall:
The crowd cheered Kasich’s response. The reaction contrasted starkly with a 2011 Republican presidential debate in which audience members booed Army Capt. Stephen Hill, a gay combat veteran, for speaking favorably about the repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I wish Republicans weren't such slow learners. The agony they've caused so many ...

Update: Arghs! I forgot how hideous Rick Santorum was as well. What a sanctimonious buffoon! Here is the clip of that ugly 2011 incident.
