Your Letters: Democrats running out of feet to shoot

Democrats plan to make it official on gay marriage. Reaction has been strong following the announcement that the Democratic Party plans to adopt support for gay marriage at its nominating convention in early September.

During a weekend meeting in Minneapolis, the party's platform drafting committee voted to include language backing homosexual marriage. Delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. plan to formally approve the platform at a gathering where President Barack Obama will be nominated to run for re-election.

In early May, the president publicly endorsed same-sex marriage. Talk about opening a can of worms!

Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi are determined to redefine marriage. Rank and file Democrats fear that the Democratic Party has been captured by extremists.

President Obama and the DNC may well run out of feet to shoot by Nov. 6. These and past Socialist revelations may well sink Obama's quest for four more years.
