The biggest argument the Left has had about Romney is the 'ol Flip Flop. I guess that just went up in smoke. Let's go over this step by step. Here's an interesting article you may want to read.
Now I would like to examine that article. I'll give you a quick walk through. In 1996, Barack Obama was running for Illinois State Senate. At that time, he was a firm supporter of same sex marriage. He was running in the 13th District which encompasses UIC. The kids there probably looked at him as a hip young politician. In 2004 he did an about face. He now supported civil unions, but was against same sex marriage. Oh, I forgot to mention he was running for U.S. Senator at the time. He has staunchly been against same sex marriage since..
Just last week the President came out in full support of Same Sex Marriage, and equal rights to same sex couples wanting to marry. Here is a quote from the ABC interview with Robin Roberts.
"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or Marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."
So the President had a change of heart. His view on this has evolved, and has nothing to do with politics. He's a great man who has made history (Again) by becoming the first sitting President to endorse same sex marriage. That's pretty much what I've read on some Liberal blogs. I would like to offer you this, from the above article.
Barack Obama: I am a fierce supporter of domestic-partnership and civil-union
laws. I am not a supporter of gay marriage as it has been thrown about,
primarily just as a strategic issue. I think that marriage, in the minds of a
lot of voters, has a religious connotation. I know that's true in the
African-American community, for example. And if you asked people, 'should gay
and lesbian people have the same rights to transfer property, and visit
hospitals, and et cetera,' they would say, 'absolutely.' And then if you talk
about, 'should they get married?', then suddenly ...
So where does the strategy fall this time. It can't be strategic, it must be from the heart. Right? Wrong again Obama supporters. Obama has lost some of the Hispanic vote that he once had in '08. So where could he tap into? Homosexuals. An untapped resource for a President running for re-election. Some might think this could actually hurt him with the black vote, since a lot of black citizens are against homosexual marriage. But don't worry, our benevolent leader already thought of that one.
No worries, Reverend Al and the NAACP are on the case.
OH! I'm sorry, did I fail too mention that you are a flip-flopping piece of shit. My apologies President Obama. You deserve much better.
