    Because DU is an echo chamber they think that THEY are the MAJORITY (along with Obama, of course) and everyone else is the minority.

    2. Our President

    IS a genius

    I think he is finally playing that 3 dimensional Chess
    I don't think that gay marriage has EVER won in a state where it has been put to a vote.

    Sure there are going to be many who will vote for Obama despite his views on gay marriage............but there aren't going to be many who wouldn't have voted for him that decide to do so BECAUSE he approves of gay marriage.

    The only way this is "smart" is not all the gay people are donating to his campaign....the one that was way off the money mark he wanted and expected.

    Sure Obama agrees with gay marriage.....he always has....but HE IS PLAYING THEM....and they lap it up.

    5. we have a leader who is smart and

    willing to fight. Bill Clinton was like that. Other Democratic candidates in my lifetime, not so much. The rest were usually smart but had no game.

    It is a dumb move. He gains only those who were already voting for him. Very few, if any, undecideds will rush to vote for him over gay marriage.

    Gay marriage polls badly. It's the reason that gays have taken to the courts, rather than the ballot box, to create this "right". Obama's embrace of gay marriage serves one purpose, and that is to fire up his base, which has been less than enchanted with his performance in the White House.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
