Keeping in line with the true nature of a master manipulator, Barack Obama has now come "out of the closet" so to speak and claimed that after a long and lengthy process of wrestling with the issue of same-sex marriage, he is now for it. That is after he had been for it, and then against it, and now for it. Really? Isn't this just a convenient time to change your position and make history so you can get more votes from another special interest group?
Maybe we could believe that Obama had actually changed his position if this were really a decision which was made on its own without manipulation being a part of the picture. Unfortunately, Obama's evolving position on same-sex marriage appears to be scripted to gain the maximum benefits of making him look like some kind of civil rights hero. Let's have a look at how Obama's decision "evolved" over the course of the last few days.
As he is so adept at sticking his foot in his mouth, Vice President Joe Biden appeared on Meet The Press on Sunday May 6 and supposedly spoke in an unauthorized manner stating that he was "completely comfortable with men marrying men" when that was not the official White House position. Apparently Joe Biden doesn't realize he isn't supposed to air his personal feelings unless they align 100% with the official line. At least that's the way Obama and his media manipulators wanted it to look.
Then, because of what looks like one of Joe Biden's monthly gaffes, Obama has to think about his position on the issue of same-sex marriage a little longer. Once Obama contemplates the issue for another whole day, he miraculously reverses his opinion and also invokes his daughters' wisdom on the issue as well:
"You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and weâ€™re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldnâ€™t dawn on them that somehow their friendsâ€™ parents would be treated differently. It doesnâ€™t make sense to them and, frankly, thatâ€™s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective."
So, now we are manipulated to see how this decision was in some way prompted by his whole family. Isn't it funny how the President has always told he press to stay away from his daughters and not talk about them in their reports, but when it is convenient for the president to use them to show the country how he "evolves", it's just fine to drag them into the arena.
And of course there's a teachable moment when the President says, "...and weâ€™re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldnâ€™t dawn on them that somehow their friendsâ€™ parents would be treated differently", but unfortunately Obama completely misses it and lets his daughters dictate national agenda, or so Obama wants us to believe. Really, Mr President, you want us to believe this utter rubbish? So no one is ever treated differently than anyone else in this country, no matter how they behave? Kids aren't treated different? The elderly aren't treated different? Those that have access to the White House aren't treated different? Members of Congress aren't treated differently than the rest of us when it comes to health care, or taxes, or stock trading information? Sure, we all believe that.
And here's where the scam of this whole issue gets exposed. Suddenly, instead of the story being about Obama's complete flip / flop position on the issue of same-sex marriage, the Washington Post reports on Mitt Romney supposedly bullying someone in high school almost 50 years ago. As Glenn Beck's Blaze reports:
â€œYou know, hereâ€™s the Washington Post vetting Mitt Romney in this way for a haircut, a haircut, 50 years ago. Almost 50 years ago, but they have absolutely zero interest, none whatsoever, in the chosen oneâ€™s past. Barack Obama has done and said â€‘â€‘ I mean, the guy was mentored by a cardâ€‘carrying Communist,â€ Pat said.
Glenn added that in the sixties and seventies the words and insults that are now associated with â€œgay bashingâ€ werenâ€™t necessarily used that way then. Glenn said that he used to be called a â€œpansyâ€ because he was terrible at sports, but neither he nor his friends associated the word with having sex with men or other homosexual behavior.
â€œItâ€™s not what they meant. We didnâ€™t think this way,â€ Glenn explained.
â€œThe culture was completely different then,â€ Stu added.
The President also used the historic event to raise lots of money and the Obama campaign is now conveniently selling gay baby clothes. And he also, almost instantly, used social media to flout his new position. It is as if this whole "coming out" by the President was pre-planned so he could just conveniently use it against Mitt Romney painting him as the usual closed minded bigot that the left likes to paint religious conservative as.
