President Obama declared today he actually supports gay marriage, ending his "evolution" on the issue. For the all the talk of Romney flopping, he doesn't hold a candle to this. Obama will go on TV tonight to explain it as follows:
Uh, yeah, except here's the thing: Everyone knows you're full of sh**, Mr. President. You've been against gay marriage your entire life, or at least your entire political career. Now, you're simply cleaning up Vice President Gaffer's mess. You started to hear rumors that funding from pro-gay marriage groups might dry up unless you embraced gay marriage and ended this "evolving position" crap. You started worrying about your political base, which come to think of it is the only thing you've been worried about for at least a year. That's right, sir. We see right through you. This "announcement" is exclusively a political move. You know it, and we know it.
In a year where President might actually have been able to take advantage of Romney having changed some of his positions, he's committed what might be the biggest flip flip job in political history. In fact, it goes beyond even that. This move is flat-out cynical. It's transparent.And it's classic Obama. The man has gone way beyond the Clinton spin machine that was so adept at turning events towards their advantage. Obama's every move over the past 12 months (if not longer) has been a political calculation. He has no interest in governing the country...not until he gets some more "flexibility" after the election.
