Gay Marriage is Obama’s Poison Pill…

…says Alan Caruba.

If he’s right it adds some ammunition to my view of Obama’s coming landslide loss in Nov.

For the record I’m against gay marriage. I’ve nothing against gays having a Civil Union,  having the same rights under the law as married couples do, heck I don’t even mind if one of them nags the other to death, just don’t call it marriage and go through a traditional wedding. It’s not nit picking, one of the tactics of the left over the last hundred years is redefining words. Words have meanings, to change meanings for political purposes is to weaken the bonds that keep us civilised. I guess we all know our Orwell to know what I’m getting at.

I bet Joe Biden is in the dog house about now, no doubt afraid to close his eyes in case Freddie Barack Krueger is roaming around.

    For the record, I am opposed to gay marriage too. Civil unions, yes.

    Excellent comment and links at Joshuapundit.

    I think everyone who really cares strongly about this issue has been locked in for ages. If Mitt has a brain he won’t touch this, and will talk about nothing but the horrible economy and the terrifying debt caused by out-of-control gov’t spending. There are six months until the election. Letting the MSM suck him into spending who-knows-how-long on this issue while they pulverize him as a bigot and try to scare off “independent” voters is a sucker’s game.

    An interesting move on Obama’s part.
    This is way down on the list of things that most people care about, but high on the list that politically active people care about. Obama is still, in many ways, the state pol from a safe district. I think he did this to help fill his campaign coffers. It’s hard to see how this will help him in the so-called “battleground states”.

  7. Nolo Contendere says:

    Honestly, all marriage is essentially civil unions at the government level. Committment, stability, and the other things that go with it are conservative values, and for me, at least, make a solid case for gay civil unions.

    Obama, I think, is trying to both draw contributions and distract us from the dreadful economy. Romney should ignoe the distractions and pound on spending, the deficit, and the economy.

  8. Bob says:

    I agree. He should not only tell us how he’ll pull us out of the deep recession, but also how he started the process by saving the auto industry.

    “I’ll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry’s come back. My own view is that the auto companies needed to go through bankruptcy before government help. And frankly, that’s finally what the president did. He finally took them through bankruptcy.”

    We should all be grateful to Mitt.
