You would think someone who opposed the practice as recently as 2012 would be more ambivalent about today’s Court decision, more circumspect in his language about a practice which, he assured the entire voting public of the United States, conflicted with his deeply religious worldview when he first ran for president in 2008. As it is, this is as fulsome a celebration of gay marriage as you’ll find outside an Anthony Kennedy opinion or an Andrew Sullivan blog post. Here’s the thing about “evolution”: It happens, but it’s supposed to take awhile. With Obama, it was lightning fast. Any theories about why that is? Anyone want to spitball an explanation for why the rhetoric here, variations of which were surely uttered around candidate Obama many, many times by his circle of left-wing intellectual pals, supposedly wasn’t persuasive enough to convince him of the justness of the cause until after he was safely elected president?
I’ve written the “Obama’s a ridiculous fraud” post about his SSM “evolution” many times over the past three years and should retire the genre today, now that the issue’s effectively settled as a matter of law. But for the record, and I say this as a supporter of gay marriage myself, it will never not amaze me just how cynical this tool was in lying about his true position on the subject in 2008.
