Faster than you can say, “obscurity,” Laura Bush has gotten her wish. The organizers of a new coalition designed to garner support for same-sex marriage have removed her supportive comments — which were part of a $1 million nationwide print, online, and TV advertising campaign featuring President Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and the former First Lady herself.

“The Respect for Marriage Coalition is honoring former first lady Laura Bush’s request that they remove her from a newly launched national advertising campaign in support of gay marriage,” the Dallas News reports:

The coalition told Politico in a statement that “we appreciate Mrs. Bush’s previous comments but are sorry she didn’t want to be included in an ad.” The group is launching a new ad, which will no longer use a 2010 news clip of Bush talking about same sex marriage.

“The ad launched a public education campaign that will now move to new and different voices that reflect the depth and breadth of our support,” the coalition said.

The Respect For Marriage Coalition offers more news about their campaign on their website.

What a coward! I guess the pro-homophobia bullies have intimidated her into silence.

Laura Bush also said "I'm married to George Bush but I don't want anyone saying I'm married to George Bush."

She just wants to hide in her mansion with her husband who is still waiting for someone to make him a grilled cheese because he is too incompetent to do it himself.
