Barry O Celebrates A Victory For Gay Marriage. But Why?

In 1996, Barack Obama was clearly for gay marriage.  He said so, quite definitively, in his responses to a questionnaire sent to him by Outlines, a gay newspaper in Chicago.  Click on the image below so you can read the blurry print.

Of course, he was being asked these questions by a gay publication.

In 1998, he answered the same questions on LGBT issues, strongly affirming his newly found undecidedness on the issue.

In 2004, when he was running for Senate, he told the same newspaper that while he supported civil unions, he was no longer a supporter of gay marriage, calling it a strategic issue.  The strategy he was referring to was that he felt civil unions would be more likely to get passed.  Ya see, his stance on gay marriage has nothing to do with actual rights; only with what side he thinks will win at any given moment in time.  The LGBT should be crucifying this lying spineless mutherfukker!!  In an 8 year span of interviews with Windy City Times, he covered every fukkin' base... For it/Against it/Undecided!  

In 2008, during a Presidential forum with John McCain, he told the moderator, Pastor Rick Warren of the huge Saddleback Church in Southern California, "I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman.  Now, for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union.  God's in the mix."

Later in 2008, he told an MTV audience that "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman.  I am not in favor of gay marriage."

And finally (or is it?), in 2012 during an interview with Robin Roberts, openly gay news personality and cancer survivor, he told her that, BOOM, he was in favor of gay marriage again.  And then immediately looked for credit for having the temerity and courage to change his opinion in such a public way.

This week, he lit up the fukkin' White House like a bag of Skittles and his pole washers are calling this a victory for his administration.  Maybe they ought to do a little research.  Like his home city (no, not Kenya), he changes with the wind.

But hey, the Pope is coming to meet him next week.  Guess he'll be against gay marriage on that day.
Not to be outdone, Ol' Firepants herself is shouting victory with the Supreme Court decision, forgetting that YouTube can be quite the thorny little enema.  Bitch.
