We have been told since 2004 how brilliant and intellectual Barack Obama is and that he was a “constitutional scholar,” whatever that means. Well, let’s close by imaging that Obama’s words were uttered by another Democratic president in the year 1860. I’ve replaced “gay marriage” with “abolishing slavery” to illustrate my point:
At a certain point, I’ve just concluded that — for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that — I support abolishing slavery. Now — I have to tell you that part of my hesitation on this has also been I didn’t want to nationalize the issue. There’s a tendency when I weigh in to think suddenly it becomes political and it becomes polarized.
And what you’re seeing is, I think, states working through this issue — in fits and starts, all across the country. Different communities are arriving at different conclusions, at different times. And I think that’s a healthy process and a healthy debate. And I continue to believe that this is an issue that is gonna be worked out at the local level, because historically, this has not been a federal issue, what’s recognized as abolishing slavery.
I wonder if our new president will now be known as Barack Hussein Buchanan? The gay activists miss this hypocrisy. They will send money and vote for Obama in the same way they still fawn over Bill Clinton, who stabbed gays in the back during his time in office. The most important thing for gay ideologues in America is not earning the respect of their fellow Americans. It is being patted on the head and told they are loved by their Democratic president.
And I am called self-loathing?
