Shock: Obama Lied About Support for Traditional Marriage
According to David Axelrod’s memoir, Barack Obama once told his former adviser, “I’m just not very good at bulls—-ing.” We know; total BS. The subject matter was Obama’s political choice to feign support for traditional marriage during the 2008 campaign. Even Obama’s water carriers at Time magazine were dismayed: “Barack Obama misled Americans for his own political benefit.” Right, this just in. According to Axelrod, “Opposition to gay marriage was particularly strong in the black church, and as [Obama] ran for higher office, he grudgingly accepted the counsel of more pragmatic folks like me, and modified his position to support civil unions rather than marriage, which he would term a ‘sacred union.’” Obama even couched his lie in terms of his faith – “as a Christian…” he said. So he lied about his own faith and principles, but Axelrod says it’s a virtue that he was uncomfortable doing so. Obama then spent the next couple of years “evolving” on the issue so he could appear to have been persuaded by the evidence. Naturally, Obama claims he didn’t mislead voters, he just hadn’t come up with “a sufficient way of squaring the circle” of his personal beliefs and political reality. We don’t buy it. Such deceit on Obama’s part shouldn’t surprise anyone. He knows nothing but politics, and he uses every issue, including family and his supposed Christian faith, for his own political benefit.
