The Wall Street Journal reports:
“1996: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages” was an answer included on a signed questionnaire to a Chicago gay community newspaper when Mr. Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. In 2011, a White House aide said someone else filled it out.
2004: As a U.S. Senate candidate, Mr. Obama tells Chicago public television “marriage is between a man and a woman.” In the same interview, Mr. Obama said he wanted to ensure gays and lesbians have “the rights of citizenship” but noted, “I don’t think marriage is a civil right.”
2008: Mr. Obama, running for president, again says marriage should be limited to unions between a man and a woman. “For me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union… God’s in the mix,” he says in an interview with the Rev. Rick Warren, a leading evangelical minister.
2010: After signing the repeal of a ban on gays openly serving in the military, Mr. Obama tells reporters that “my feelings are constantly evolving” on gay marriage.
2011: “I’m still working on it,” Mr. Obama tells ABC News when asked if he would change his mind on gay marriage before the 2012 election.
2012: “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Mr. Obama tells an interviewer for ABC.”
We all can catch on to the same trend here with Mr. Obama. His position is sporadically changing when it comes to gay marriage, and nearly every time it’s changed it’s when the political environment itself is changing. It’s obvious that his flip flops on gay marriage are all due to politics and nothing more then that. Barack Obama and his staff should’ve learned by now to keep Mr. Biden on his leash or else Obama’s going to be forced AGAIN to cover for Biden’s moronic remarks about Obama’s “big stick” and Biden also is the sole reason Obama changed his stance on gay marriage; Biden’s undoubting support for gay marriage recently has forced Barack Obama, politically, to support gay marriage.
But is this what we need to be worrying about? Obama’s imbecilic political games are no concern; the true concern is that Barack Obama and his administration can get away with whatever it is that they please. The reason that’s happening is because of the liberal media. For example, the Usama Bin Laden one year anniversary was a pretty big deal because the media made it a big deal. This is because of the “Lean Forward” MSNBC media and ABC media are ridiculously soft on Obama and his mistakes. Every problem that occurs in the Obama admin never comes back to bite Obama, it always avoids the ‘Angel’ president and falls onto someone else. It sounds a lot like the original Teflon president, Ronald Reagan. But the sad part is nobody in the media will ever refer to Obama as that or hold him accountable. Barack Obama hasn’t taken ANY heat for the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal, but Attorney General Eric Holder is the one holding the burden on his shoulders, a lot like Ronald Reagan and the Iran Contra. Barack Obama has flip flopped on more than just gay marriage (marijuana laws, special interests, Cuba embargo, etc.), so why isn’t he labeled as the “etch-a-sketch” candidate?
