Obama Goes Gay (Marriage)
President Obama has come out of the closet and now says he favors homosexual marriage.
So as this revelation is parsed out, a few of options are worth unpacking.
First, the President could be taking what he thinks is a genuinely moral stand on what is apparently a change of heart—his evolution—on the topic.
Second, GaffeMaster Flash, AKA Joe Biden, could have forced Obama’s hand and continuing to live the lie was just too difficult (and distracting).
Third, Obama could have come to an understanding (say, as suggested by internal polling) which posits he won’t be battered by Black or Hispanic voters for endorsing homosexual marriage. That is, They’re going to vote for me anyway.
Unless, of course, they don’t.
Fourth, Obama could have figured the homosexual community’s push-back would be more severe (as suggested by the same internal polling) both money and vote-wise than anticipated had he not approved.
Finally, he might mistakenly think he’s supporting a Muslim-held position on the subject. The caption in the cartoon above has two married—to each other—men whispering of muskrat love. Draw your own conclusions.
Given the voting results in from North Carolina, the whole spectacle seems to serve as another reminder the President remains out of step with the populace.
