A report at the first link below outlines Obama’s seven states of grief over gay marriage.
The seven states he may lose over his support for gay marriage are:
This could be a death blow to the Obama campaign in November.
If there’s been one constant over the course of President Barack Obama’s evolution on gay marriage, it’s this: The White House’s keen awareness of the radioactive politics of the issue.
Has the Obama administration lost sight of the fact that only 4% of the American adult population identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender? (see third link below)
The commonly held belief that 10% of Americans were gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender is from a passage in a 1948 Kinsey book.
A word about the Kinsey studies of 65 years ago (see fourth link below).
The life and work of Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey, the Indiana University entomologist turned pioneering sexologist, has provoked accounts and interpretations as divergent, and as bitterly contested, as John Kerry’s Vietnam service in the last election.
To some, Kinsey was a fearless academic pioneer who defied conventional social taboos and helped end an era of rampant ignorance, misinformation, and fear about sex.
To others, he was a depraved propagandist in a bow tie who draped a cloak of academic respectability over lies, sin, and perversion. Some claim that he and his researchers may even have carried out sexual experimentation upon children; others insist that Kinsey’s data was gathered solely from interviews.
Vice President Joe Biden forced President Obama’s hand on gay marriage. As the video below shows, Obama wanted to wait until the Democratic National Convention to “softly" announce his support for gay marriage.
But, as the Obama says in the video that Biden got “a little over his skis” and blurted out Obama’s support for gay marriage now, the administration will just have to live with it.
No one knew that Biden would be that useful - for the opposition, that is.
