The Truth about President Obama's Same Sex Maraige announcement
President Obama stated on May 9th, 2012 the he is in favor of gay marriage. Why? He did not propose anything. No Constitutional Ammendment, or anything new. It is up to to the states so why did he do this? The only weakness of Romney's has been that he is seen as a "flip flopper". He has stood firm on this and now Obama will have to hear that alligation. So why now?
Simple, he is up for re election and his base is not happy. He says that his daughters and "young people" had a lot to do with this evolution. One of his daughters supposedly has friends with same sex parents, and she changed her father, our president. Really? No, not really!
The real reason- The V.P., Joe Biden stated last weekend that he was totally in favor of gay marriage and that there is no difference between the two types. That raised a lot of questions from the gay community and media about where the president stood.
Not only that, but there are rumors all over Washington that Biden is going to get the boot. Obama could not do that until he firmed up the gay vote. If he let Biden say "I fully support gay marriage" and then he got fired as V.P., what would that say about the president. What would the gay community think of Obama then. The president had to clarify this and clear himself with the gay community before he fires his "friend" Joe.
Obama is hurting in the polls and he can not afford to take any more risks. This was a problem that he had to solve right now. Even though it will likely cost him Indiana, North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, and some other swing states, he could not wait on this, in his opinion.
Was it mistake?
