Oh, the president is having a grand old time, beating his chest about how brave he is to declare his support for gay marriage, while milking every sexual confused celebrity for a donation to his re-election campaign.
He's making cash hand-over-fist, to be sure, but if his economic history is any indicator of future events, he'll probably just waste it anyway. Bottom line is, the American people are tolerant of homosexuality, but they don't want the lifestyle rubbed into their faces. So headlines like these are not helping matters:
Gay old time for Obama in Big Apple - Joined by $tars days after same-sex nuptials stance
Only days after his controversial declaration of support for same-sex marriage, President Obama was livin’ la vida loca in Chelsea yesterday at a star-studded fund-raiser hosted by singer Ricky Martin and attended by other prominent gay and lesbian donors.
Obama told the crowd, “I think the American people are on our side on this.”
The president hauled in more than $3 million yesterday — starting with $1 million at the Chelsea event.
And then there's this one:
Obama, touting gay marriage stance, calls for repeal of Defense of Marriage Act
President Obama openly spoke of repealing the Defense of Marriage Act at a fundraiser Monday, as he defended his personal view that gay couples should have the right to marry.
While his administration has put out statements on the idea of repealing the 1996 federal law defining marriage as between a man and a woman, it's unusual for Obama to call for its repeal.
Which makes this headline no surprise:
Obama’s Switch on Same-Sex Marriage Stirs Skepticism
Most Americans suspect that President Obama was motivated by politics, not policy, when he declared his support for same-sex marriage, according to a new poll released on Monday, suggesting that the unplanned way it was announced shaped public attitudes.
Sixty-seven percent of those surveyed by The New York Times and CBS News since the announcement said they thought that Mr. Obama had made it “mostly for political reasons,” while 24 percent said it was “mostly because he thinks it is right.” Independents were more likely to attribute it to politics, with nearly half of Democrats agreeing.
The results reinforce the concerns of White House aides and Democratic strategists who worried that the sequence of events leading up to the announcement last week made it look calculated rather than principled...
Now why in the world would anyone think that?
But as is always the case, Obama has a ready-made excuse should his personal gay pride march fail him....blame the racist and homophobic American people!
You know...like this guy:
