When Obama announced in May that he had evolved on gay marriage your humble bloggers, like many Americans, saw it as little more than a political gimmick. It was all about hauling in the campaign cash from trusting gays.
It seems that gay Democrats were just a little too eager for Obama to like them.
Back then, I cited some on the left who reported Obama’s policies on gay marriage had changed little despite his expressed “evolution.” In May, he didn’t identify any new legislation he would be supporting or promoting to effect federal recognition of same-sex marriages.
Shouldn’t left-leaning gays, I asked,
. . . be insisting that he show us he loves us by putting some political capital on the line and backing legislation to make federal recognition of gay relationships a reality?
He’s like the guy who tells his beloved how much he loves her, tells her wants to get married, but refuses to buy a ring or set a date.
Some gay Democrats were just a little too eager to be loved by Obama. It’s all about him making them fell good, but, in the end, his policy on gay marriage is little different from Romney’s.
We told you his “evolution” was a political gimmick, a fundraising scheme. And yesterday, Barack Obama showed that we were right.
