Oh dears. Barack Hussein Obama worked up the nerve to publicly come out in favor of something we all (save a few black Democrats in denial) knew he favored, namely gay marriage. Of course we knew! After all, shouldn’t he side with the cool kids on this issue?
Also, he needs to shore up the base, and the base, unlike voters as a whole, who will in most likelihood vote on the economy in 2012, loves culture wars. Well, some in the base, at least, particularly his gay donors and their friends.
Oh, but while we are talking about marriage, can we please get our president on record regarding polygamy. Since his name graces the cover of a book called “Dreams from My Father”, and it’s all about the young man searching for his roots and struggling with his identity. As it happens, the young man’s dad, the person whose first name he carries, was a polygamist, and not particularly nice to his mom, for that matter. Did POTUS, our authority on everything marriage, ever struggle with that fact, I wonder? If not,then why did he decide misogyny is unimportant, or at least not important enough to be discussed in his book? I’m sure plenty of women voters would like to know.
Then there are his Pakistani roommates. Polygamy is legal in Pakeestan. According to Obama’s real life New York ex located by David Maraniss, Obama thought his Pakistani friends “partied too much and too hard”, whatever that means. Interesting to know what the attitudes of these men were, and if Barack shared any of them. Curious to note that our President got along with men raised in a polygamous society so well.
I mean, really, can we get him on record on this issue, please?
ONE MORE THING: I see a lot of headlines about ‘Bamster “evolving”or his mind being “changed” on gay marriage. Not so. He was always for it; he merely flip-flopped for political expediency.
