Evolution: Obama To Not Really Clarify His Gay Marriage Stance at 1:30
Update: Adviser to President Tells Reporter That Obama "Will Make Some News"

Update: From @drewmtips, Ed Henry says he's told the president will "make some news" with his announcement.

Previously the claim had always been that the president wasn't making news; now he says he is. (Drew's excellent observation.)

I still think, though, he'll try to have it both ways.

...

Time for a gutsy call? I'm betting against it. Oh, he'll talk up gay marriage, but he'll still punt. He'll say something like he wants to help this process along, this process of increasing public acceptance of gay marriage, but he thinks it would be "counterproductive" to endorse it.

I know that doesn't really make sense but neither does Obama, most of the time. Because he lies, and lies usually don't make sense.

One senior official says he'll definitely endorse it after the election.

Marc Ambinder acts as if he knows something:

So do I think President Obama will endorse same-sex marriage today? Yes. Yes I do.

At that last link at Hot Air, some more on the punchline Obama's become, including Jon Stewart goofing on him. Allah also recommends this Onion article.

Obama Blasts Obama's Evasive Stance On Gay Marriage

'The President Needs To Come Clean On His Views,' Obama Says

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama lashed out at President Barack Obama's seemingly evasive stance on gay marriage Tuesday, calling the head-of-state's cagey position on the issue both "cowardly" and "an example of failed leadership."

Speaking to reporters from the White House East Room, Obama said that he has had enough of the president's endless hedging on same-sex marriage and that, as president of the United States, he can't just sit back and take a passive position on what he called the "most important civil rights issue of our time."

"President Obama's inability to simply state whether he's for or against gay marriage is unacceptable," Obama said during a spirited 30-minute address in which he sharply criticized the president for failing time and again to articulate his beliefs. "This nonsense where he says his views are 'evolving' isn't going to cut it anymore. It's patronizing and it's wrong."

"Mr. President," the president continued, "I am waiting for your answer. We all are."


More: Obama always supported gay marriage; he's just been lying about it.

Answering a questionnaire in 1996, he wrote: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages,and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."

Also thanks to @drewmtips

Thanks, that is funny.

WASHINGTON—More than a week after President Barack Obama's cold-blooded killing of a local couple, members of the American news media admitted Tuesday that they were still trying to find the best angle for covering the gruesome crime.

"I know there's a story in there somewhere," said Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, referring to Obama's home invasion and execution-style slaying of Jeff and Sue Finowicz on Apr. 8. "Right now though, it's probably best to just sit back and wait for more information to come in. After all, the only thing we know for sure is that our president senselessly murdered two unsuspecting Americans without emotion or hesitation."

Added Meacham, "It's not so cut and dried."

I think Obama has decided he needs gay money (fundraising) and a motivated base more than he needs the white working class, and that while blacks and Hispanics won't be pleased, they'll have nowhere else to go. He's probably also thinking that by taking the hit now it can be put into the closet (har!) for the rest of the campaign, because Romney isn't going to want to make a big issue out of SSM and distract from his core economic message.

You know... the funny thing about people using that term is that Solomon never had any intention of "splitting the baby." He knew that the real mother would not allow her child to die, even if it meant the fake mother would get to keep the child.

Actually splitting the baby would not have been "wise" at all. It would have been evil.

Which is to say- I think Barack Obama (noted Malignant Narcissist and Stuttering Clusterf*ck of a Miserable Tyrant) will, indeed, "split the baby," but I don't think he realizes what he's actually doing.

92 Obama cannot endorse same-sex marriage before the election.

The only reason the California ban passed in 2008 was because so many race-card blacks showed up to vote for Obama. If he endorses SSM he loses in a historic landslide.

He will do a fan dance that indicates that he will do something after the election without saying so directly, but it will be forceful because the gay lobby knows it is getting it's ass handed to it nationwide, outside the coasts.

1-*energize conservatives
2-*alienate moderates
3-*embolden the loony radicals, which will have a feedback effect to amplify
1 2.

Oh, and this one might peel off ~5-10 % of black voters--esp. if it looks like Obama is going down anyway, there's nothing like standing up for GOD, by God, by kicking a loser on the ground!! Can't you hear those fiery preachers: "God made Adam and Eve...He did not make Adam and STEEEEVE!!"

Obama's incompetence and arrogance are catching up with him, and cascading down faster than the left and the press (BIRM) can clean up his disasters. Those disasters are now political and tactical, as well as substantive, so unless they can find a way to fire a ground-to-air missile into Mitt Romney's campaign plane, it will be a landslide for Romney!

157 CNBC looking forwards:

We are lowering our growth forecast and pushing out the anticipated timing of Fed hikes. The June international trade figures were much weaker than what both we and the Commerce Department had assumed, and it was not due to petroleum, which can often be a major monthly swing factor. In the June data, exports were down 1.3%, due mostly to lower capital goods excluding autos, while imports were up a sizeable 3.0%, largely on consumer goods and autos. The net effect was to push the June trade deficit from a modestly lower revised May reading of -$42.0 billion (was -$42.3 billion) to -$49.9 billion, the largest monthly trade deficit since October 2008 (-$59.4 billion). What is strange about the June trade numbers is that the deficit is widening while the inventory build is getting revised lower. Oftentimes, a rise in imports on the back of stronger domestic demand leads to higher rather than lower inventories—it now appears inventories will barely be higher in Q2 than their $44 billion increase in the prior quarter. Nonetheless, the data have an impact on our 2010 second half GDP forecast.

The net effect of this morning’s trade data is for us to further trim our estimate of Q2 real GDP. Less construction, inventories and net exports point to a sharp downward revision to Q2 real GDP growth from +2.4% to just +1.1%. This in turn creates a high hurdle for a large gain in output this quarter, which had been our expectation. Absent meaningful private sector job growth, a quarterly delta of 350 bps on sequential quarterly real GDP from +1.1% to +4.6% is too aggressive. Therefore, we are marking down our second half growth forecast as follows: Q3 real GDP has been cut from +4.6% to +3.0% and Q4 real GDP has been cut from +3.8% to +3.3%. This lowers Q4 over Q4 2010 real GDP growth from +3.6% to +3.1%, which is still above trend. We are not trimming our 2011 real GDP forecast at this point—it remains at +3.3% as measured on a Q4 over Q4 basis. Less GDP growth and lower employment prospects implicitly mean a longer period of near zero interest rates, and yesterday’s very dovish FOMC statement only reinforces this. Consequently, we are pushing out the expected timing of rate normalization from Q1 2011 into the second half of next year. We see the fed funds rate at 1% by the end of next year compared to 2.0% previously.

He cannot afford to lose even a small number of black votes. They'll vote for him in a huge percentage, but more will stay home if he annoys them any further.

True they won't be voting for Mitt, but they probably won't be voting period. Each group drops to 80% turnout and Barry is toast. Hell, if the black turnout alone drops to 80% Barry is toast.

So here's what's gonna happen.

1. Obama will not come out explicitly in favor of homo marriage.
2. The media will spin it as some sort of Solomonesque "grand compromise"
3. The Leftist gay groups will do the same thing as the Leftist Catholic groups -- issue a new release giving credit to Obama and that they are satisfied with Obama's positions on the matter.

Do you think it was all whites that for the DOMA in NC yesterday? Blacks pushed that over the line.
Posted by: Tami




Saying the Black vote was the deciding factor seems a bit much. The margin was pretty wide. However, there is some support for Blacks supporting the vote:

"There were no exit polls from last night's election, but in several of the majority-black counties that Obama carried in 2008, the amendment received more than 60 percent support. Several majority-black precincts in the Charlotte area also showed strong support for the amendment, according to the Charlotte Observer. "

270 I think the level of 'homophobia" in the minority community is being drastically underestimated. The black folks that I know and work with are rabidly against any comparisons between their civil rights movement and the gays. To compare the two groups is a major insult, a risable offense. While, of course there are gay blacks, they are usually shunned.
There is a group of Black Israelites who preach outside of my office building every Friday. If they were white they would have been arrested for hate speech years ago...but they are particularlyhostile towards gays. Not to mention that they were never Obama fans anyway, emphasizing his lack of "slave blood"
If Obama merely states his support for it but ultimately ignores it, he will lose little of the black vote. If he makes it a campaign issue, he will lose some of the vote....and if he ever came out himself, as some of the commenters here imply, he would be disowned.

272 Wow. Some of those counties voted to defend traditional marriage in excess of 80%.

Yup. All the no votes are clustered in the major urban centers of NC. Everywhere else is majority yes votes.

273 It'll certainly make for some interesting coverage. As would a racial breakdown of the North Carolina amendment vote. Since, as we all know, only white evangelicals and slope-headed rednecks can be officially called-out as gay-haters.

Here's a nice little map showing the county breakdown of the NC Marriage Amendment.Wow. Some of those counties voted to defend traditional marriage in excess of 80%.

Counties of note, per the 2010 Census results and that breakdown-

Edgecombe County - 70-30 against, 60% black.

Anson County - 70-30 against, 48% black.

Halifax County - 68-32 against, 53% black.

279 So what is bigger? The gay vote or the black vote??



Obama comes out for gay marriage he loses 25%-35% of the blacks.....



Obama does not endorse gay marriage - he loses 69% of the gay vote.....


I think you misplaced a decimal point.

At most he might lose 2.5%-3.5% of the AA vote and 6.9% of the gay vote.

289 Just another downgrade of the growth numbers. Happens every single time
for the Obama administration. They tout some high number, then a week
or so later downgrade it quietly. Every time.


****

I've wondered abut how much manipulation of the numbers can be managed. Remember last year when the GDP dropped drastically to something like .4% from a much higher projected number?

Given the traditional method of determining whether we are in a recession, two consecutive months of negative growth, what if the rate for a particular month were dropped soooo low that anything that follows would be viewed as growth.

Is that possible?

292 "They'll vote to stop a Republican, not stay home. They'd vote for Josef Mengele's bones to stop a Republican."

Sad, but true. Which is why it's so easy for the Democrats to string them along.

So, what would happen if Romney endorsed same-sex-marriage?

Many evangelicals already have a mixed view of Romney's Mormon faith, but are supporting him as a fiscal conservative. Or, at very least, as the anybody-but-Obama candidate. Would this change their minds? Would a significant portion of his Republican base stay home, allowing Obama to win?

Yep. There would suddenly be many comments on Zero's White half.
Maybe some of the black folks that I know are just radicals. They are like Dinnerjacket over in Iran, "Real Blacks aren't gay, any that are have probably been bamboozled. We have no gays". I suppose that better than pulling walls down over gay people......

306 Very proud of my 18-year-old, who just posted this on Facebook:

The people of this country need to get their priorities in order. Whether or not it should be an issue, the politicians for or against gay marriage have to assess how much it directly affects their lives, and instead focus their attention on the issues that do. The United States has a lot more at stake right now than 'marital equality,' and attention focused on matters like that is attention lost towards resolving issues that actually affect the country.

309 Well, it's done. Politico just put out a Breaking News alert:

President Barack Obama announced his support for gay marriage Wednesday, telling Robin Roberts of ABC News, "I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."

310 I really dislike this meme that we can't deal with more than one issue at atime. Of course the most pressing issue s the economy, and it will ultimately decide the course of the electyion, but there are many other issues that can and should be dealt with at the same time.

315 Obama endorsing gay marriage is gay marriage receiving the kiss of death.

Posted by: Mirror-Universe Mitt Romney at May 09, 2012 06:48 PM (BQF27)

316 An example of fairy leadership.

"Speaking to reporters from the White House East Room, Obama said that he has had enough of the president's endless hedging on same-sex marriage and that, as president of the United States, he can't just sit back and take a passive position on what he called the "most important civil rights issue of our time."

Sitting back and taking a passive position seems like something Obama would do. And enjoy.

"President Obama's inability to simply state whether he's for or against gay marriage is unacceptable," Obama said during a spirited 30-minute address in which he sharply criticized the president for failing time and again to articulate his beliefs."

Obama likes to pretend that he swings both ways. But the truth is pretty obvious...

Posted by: Mirror-Universe Mitt Romney at May 09, 2012 06:53 PM (BQF27)

317 "Answering a questionnaire in 1996, he wrote: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages,and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."

Obama, you idiot, it's not a question of "legalizing" or "prohibiting." It's a matter of the government creating something. A new government service.


And then Leftists using that for the purpose of social engineering.

Posted by: Mirror-Universe Mitt Romney at May 09, 2012 06:56 PM (x+7gI)

318 Did Obama give himself a raise?
A question as big as gay marriage can only be decided by someone with a high "pay grade".
