Did Newsweek, which placed Obama on its cover with a rainbow halo, discuss his numerous flip flops regarding gay marriage or did they once again crown him the king?
Take a look at their cover and decide for yourself:
It should be remembered that in 1996 Obama was for gay marriage but in 2004 he went into the closet about it then came out again in 2012. And then he picked up $6 million from Hollywood a day or two later for swaying more than a reed during a windstorm at the ocean.
No doubt many are getting tingles up their legs from such support from the Fourth Estate.
Vice President Dick Cheney publicly stated his support for gay marriage in 2004… did he land on the cover of any news magazine with a rainbow halo atop his head?
Gays are happy to get the support but Obama can be considered, at best, a mercurial ally. Not only is his flip flopping on the subject well known but his most recent conversion simply came down to money: gay donors were threatening to withhold financial support.
$15 million streamed into his campaign coffers within 24 hours of resuming his support for gay marriage.
The journolists at Newsweek, abandoning whatever objectivity they had left, may end up hurting their man more than helping him.
Gay marriage holds little support in the United States. Every time voters have been offered the opportunity to legalize it in their state they have rejected it.
Maybe Americans will be on the “wrong side of history” but opposition to gay marriage doesn’t just come from Conservatives. When offered in a vote in California, it was rejected. Many blacks, who support Obama, are against gay marriage for example as are many Hispanics who are overwhelmingly Catholic.
While it’s obvious that this social issue is popping up to contrast Obama with Romney (who holds the same position Obama did last week) and to distract away from economic issues, the journolists’ help might not be totally welcomed by the Obama camp due to the coming backlash.
