The Left Suddenly Sees Same-Sex Marriage as a Constitutional Issue

Barack Obama evolved in his view of same-sex marriage. At first, he was mum on the issue. But then, to drum up the Left’s LGBT base in time for his re-election (and forced by Joe Biden’s premature comments on the subject), he declared he was in favor of the redefinition of marriage. Now he’s sailing with the winds of change and saying same-sex marriage is a constitutional issue that requires a Supreme Court ruling. Ryan T. Anderson at The Daily Signal writes, “This is a case study in how liberals ‘evolve’ on policy. First they embrace a policy change. If they can’t convince a majority of Americans to vote for their preferred policy, they discover that the Constitution requires their preferred policy. So, according to the Obama of today, the Obama of early 2012 held an unconstitutional view of marriage. Or, perhaps, it wasn’t unconstitutional back then but it is now.” Whatever happened to the liberal mind between 2012 and 2014, you can be sure it wasn’t a greater concern for the Constitution. They still use it as a political tool only when convenient.
