After being lauded for his sudden support of gay marriage during the election cycle to get more of the gay vote and more Hollywood liberal $, Obama is now basically telling the gay community to drop dead. He doesn’t need them anymore, he won his re-election so he doesn’t have to pander to gays anymore.
On Friday, Obama told an MTV audience that he would not fight for gay marriage his second term, intoning that “it would be up to future generations of Americans to implement meaningful reform.”
Here’s the kicker; realizing that some states are now endorsing gay marriage, Obama suddenly became a champion of states’ rights, asserting, “For us to try to legislate federally into this area is probably the wrong way to go.”
So now gays are not needed, who’s next to be tossed away by Obama? The Latino community? OH well. Elections have consequences. Myself, being libertarian on most social issues, I don’t care one way or another about gay marriage. I don’t support it, but I don’t think people who do are going to hell or anything like that.
