It is refreshing to witness President Obama‘s “evolution” on the issue of gay marriage.
His Darwinesque mutation took only three years!! That’s just the three years he spent in The White House. Should you discount his two years as an active U.S. Senator, his seven years as a State Senator, and his years serving as a community organizer? Perhaps gay marriage was never an important issue to him or a conscious thought that simply never crossed his mind.
Interesting that Evolve has suddenly found its way into President Obama’s skill set at a time when so many Liberals choose the very same word as a snarky suggestion to Conservatives who come down on the wrong side of social issues. Apparently Conservatives weren’t the only ones needing to “evolve”.
Well, at least we can take comfort in knowing this was not a politically motivated “coming out”! It’s not like he …
- wanted to avert all eyes from the Economy during a re-election year, or
- needed a Vice President and Press Secretary to stick their heads up out of the foxhole first to see if it was safe, or
- was headed for a HUGE George Clooney-organized Hollywood fund-raiser …
George Clooney‘s Obama fundraiser …. oops!
Oh, c’mon … That couldn’t be the reason why this was announced now … in a re-election year … on the eve of a night with deep pocketed, gay and gay-supporting Hollywood types … Could it?!? Nah ….
The best part is that our Brave, Forward-Thinking, Ground-Breaking President has once again given the objective media chills … be they up Chris Matthews leg or down Robin Roberts back!
I’m just thankful this evolution was totally the result of careful introspection and the need to lead the Nation in the right direction, completely devoid of any political motivation whatsoever!
Next up … Fixing the Economy!!
Now I can get back to figuring out how to help that Nigerian Finance Minister rescue that £150 million …
