CAMPAIGN TRAIL

WATCH: Bush’s Former Press Secretary Predicts Obama Will Endorse Gay Marriage In Second Term

Maybe Ari Fleischer, former minister of propaganda for President George W. Bush, though he was making some big revelation on CNN this week when he suggested President Obama would change his viewpoint on gay marriage after the election but, really, is there anyone who doesn’t already assume that?

Addressing President Obama’s recent comment to Russia’s Dmitri Medvedev that he would have more “flexibility” after November, Fleischer warns that Obama is “maneuvering” to get votes and will reveal his true self, Voldemort-style, on November 5.  But every politician everywhere—from presidents to student council members—has softened their message to attract a wider base. It’s called campaigning.

Now, should Obama not come out in favor of marriage equality in his second term, we’ll definitely be all up in his grill.

      That’s nice but until same gender marriage is passed by Obama I’m not going to believe a word that comes out of his lying mouth. FYI Queerty it’s not “gay marriage” it’s same gender marriage. There are a lot of bisexuals who are of the same gender who are partnered to each other, and couples where one partner is bisexual and the other is gay/lesbian and in both of these cases they’re not gay couples or “gay” even though they’re two people of the same gender partnered together. Get it right.

      Obama could have done this 2 – 3 years ago but he was too busy telling his justice department to deport gays, deny gays rights, etc. That’s when he was our “fierce advocate.”

      Like most politicians, they do what they do when it is SAFE. This is true for most democrats and republicans. There are few politicians that are willing to stand up for what is constitutionally right vs. what is politically right. There are a few NY Republicans and WA Republicans that have put their jobs on the line for LGBT rights. And, the same is true for some Democrats 5 years ago when EVERY major Democratic presidential candidate was against marriage equality.

      Progress is coming, albeit is slowly.

      Election day is November 6th, so he’ll reveal his true Voldemort self on the 7th, not the 5th. Just sayin’.

      I didn’t realize that Obama was a King that could just pass “same-gender marriage” while he is at it I’d like him to wave his magic wand and send me on a trip to somewhere warm and tropical.

      He wants votes people. Same as every other candidate. They do what they can to stay in office. We don’t know their real agenda.

      If you want Same-sex marriage to be legalized at the federal level then give Obama the progressive majority he needs in congress. This thread is being filled with a lot of politically naive comments.

      Yeah well, that’s Democracy. We’re just going with the lesser of two evils.
      I mean, its either him, or some other corrupt, self-serving politician.

      Regarding, “Addressing President Obama’s recent comment to Russia’s Dmitri Medvedev that he would have more “flexibility” after November, Fleischer warns that Obama is “maneuvering” to get votes and will reveal his true self, Voldemort-style, on November 5″

      … it isn’t just Obama’s campaign. To get things done, he has to get it past Congress and all of the House and a fair fraction of the Senate are also up for re-election. Their priorities are going to be what is highest on the voter’s wish list – at least to the point of making sufficient noise about those issues.

      Obama has been too busy throwing gay whistleblowers in prison without due process or probe bombing the shit of the Middle East or extending warantless wiretapping or putting sanctions Iran (you know…all those things that people supposedly voted him in office for!…oh wait…) to give anybody marriage equality. He’s a busy man killing innocent civilians and all!
