Obama shifts with political winds

For Immediate Release
May 9, 2012

LEXINGTON, KY—"It's a funny thing about politicians whose views 'evolve' on controversial issues," said Martin Cothran, in response to the announcement today by President Barack Obama that he approves of same-sex marriage. “They always seem to evolve in the direction in which the political winds are blowing."

Obama's remarks come the same day that most Americans found out that North Carolina citizens voted in favor of the traditional view of marriage. "Although it's becoming increasingly common for politicians to kowtow to liberal special interest groups, when this issue is put before people, they still vote to keep the traditional definition of marriage," said Cothran, spokesman for The Family Foundation.

"There are people whose moral convictions shift with the polls and there are people whose moral convictions are tied to something more permanent. The President has made it clear today which camp he's in."

The President was right when he supported same-sex marriage in 1996. I'm glad he now feels politically comfortable in supporting it again. There is no honor in being the last segregationist; you just look like a bigot.

There won't be any honor in stating the last non sequitur, either.
