Quotes of the day

A few hours before President Obama offered his historic endorsement of same-sex marriage on Wednesday, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. apologized to the president in the Oval Office for forcing Mr. Obama’s hand by airing his own views three days earlier, several people briefed on the exchange said on Thursday…

People who know both men said they did not believe that Mr. Biden had an ulterior motive in pre-empting the president, despite the fact that he has not ruled out running for president himself in 2016. Indeed, several gay rights activists said, whatever affection Mr. Biden’s candor might have won him with gay voters, he would still lag behind other potential Democratic candidates like Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York or Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who are both seen as champions of the gay community.

***

“President Obama just ‘evolved’ himself into a one-term president,” said Brian Brown, the president of the National Organization for Marriage. “This is a disaster for the Democratic Party: the reality is that the exact states he needs to win are the states that have overwhelmingly passed legislation defining marriage as between a man and a woman.”

“What I’m hearing from folks around the country is ‘game on, we’re in, we will do whatever is necessary to elect Mitt Romney now because Obama has shown where he really stands,” Brown said…

The Romney team will try to paint Obama’s evolution on the issue — coupled with reports that he’d planned the rollout of his change of heart for right before the Democratic convention this summer – as part of a storyline that Obama changes his message based on what is politically expedient. Of course, that’s been an effective attack on Romney in the past on issues like abortion rights.

“After weeks of strutting re: the [Osama bin Laden] anniversary and the president’s ‘decisive leadership,’ he is dragged into this by Biden and essentially yields to the base — it’s going to be hard for them to make the flip-flopper argument with a straight face,” one Romney adviser told POLITICO. “Equally bad is the story that he was going to announce the switch before the convention but not right now — suggests that principled stands can be politically timed.”

***

President Obama declared his personal support for same-sex marriage yesterday, but the White House chose not to push for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act today.

“Well, party platform issues are for the party to decide,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said when asked if Obama would call for the repeal of DOMA and endorsement of pro-gay marriage language in the party platform. “That process is underway, and I refer you to the DNC on the question about the platform.”

***

The Democrats’ top leader in Congress said Thursday that the party’s platform will soon include a plank calling for the legalization of gay marriage.

“The president’s in favor of it — I’m sure it will be [included],” said Reid…

Reid, however, declined to say when or whether he would schedule a vote on legislation approved by the Judiciary Committee to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The law defines marriage as the legal union of a man and a woman and exempts states from having to recognize same-sex marriages certified by other states.

***

Here’s something else Obama accomplished with his announcement yesterday: He has basically wiped away whatever tensions existed between him and the gay fundraising community over a range of issues, of which marriage is only one…

The push for Obama to also move on the executive order will continue, but Obama has bought himself an untold amount of good will and breathing room from this important fundraising constituency. Given that conservative groups are set to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on ads this campaign, and given that the task of waging the air war with those groups will fall largely to the Obama campaign, this is no small thing — another area where Obama’s announcement could have far reaching consequences to his reelection.

***

President Barack Obama drew cheers and applause for his endorsement of same-sex marriage during a fundraising spree on Thursday that will culminate in a multimillion-dollar extravaganza at the home of Hollywood movie star George Clooney…

“Here in Washington you’ll have the chance to make your voice heard on the issue of making sure that everybody, regardless of sexual orientation, is treated fairly,” Obama said to loud applause…

Obama’s support of gay marriage could help boost donations from supporters in his Democratic base who have been pressing him to make clear his position, which he had long described as “evolving.”

***

“I haven’t read The Washington Post article, but I think it would be discriminatory if Mitt Romney did not play pranks on gays, just the way he plays them on non-gays,” Coulter said. “And I don’t know, back then, how many people were all that aware of it? But Mitt Romney is known for being a prankster. I don’t think this issue is going to help Obama much. It is just that it is not going to hurt him as much as it would hurt a non-half-black Democrat. I think this whole thing is a lot like — it’s such a sign of desperation.”

***

***

Asked about Obama’s shift on gay marriage, Romney again reaffirmed that he believes marriage should be strictly defined as “between a man and a woman.” He called for a “national standard” to define marriage, but said states should enforce rules when it comes to “domestic partnerships.”

Romney added that he is “fine” with gay couples adopting children but “to call that marriage is a real misleading of the word.”

He told Cavuto that he hopes the issue of same sex marriage won’t be an issue that drives campaign contributions for either him or Obama this fall.

“I hope the topic as tender and sensitive as marriage is not a source of fundraising,” Romney said.

Ann Coulter makes such a good point. Obama comes out for gay marriage because it helps HIM only. Senator Tester and Senator MacCaskill, not so much. They’ll be asked but they CAN’T “come out for it”. But Obama doesn’t care about down the ticket Democrats.

Marcus on May 10, 2012 at 10:58 PM

I like — no, I love the fact that Uncle Joe is ricocheting around out there, unfiltered and unsupervised. The fact that his stream of consciousness commentary is somehow setting the agenda for their re-election campaign is just awesome.

If gay marriage were an issue dear to my heart, I cannot imagine how I would feel about the fact that Obama decided to endorse it only after the votes in CO and NC. How do you spell ‘incandescent with rage?’

cynccook on May 10, 2012 at 11:05 PM

This is why the distraction

From today

Americans are growing more pessimistic about the economy and handling it remains President Barack Obama’s weak spot and biggest challenge in his bid for a second term, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

And the gloomier outlook extends across party lines, including a steep decline in the share of Democrats who call the economy “good,” down from 48 percent in February to just 31 percent now.

Almost two-thirds of Americans — 65 percent — disapprove of Obama’s handling of gas prices, up from 58 percent in February. Nearly half, 44 percent, “strongly disapprove.” And just 30 percent said they approve, down from 39 percent in February.

“Equally bad is the story that he was going to announce the switch before the convention but not right now — suggests that principled stands can be politically timed.”

LOL. That’s a good one. Obama announced his support for gay marriage back in the 1990′s in Chicago, then opposed gay marriage when he decided to run for the Senate in the early 2000′s (had to appeal to voters statewide and they’re not as liberal outside of Chicago), then used the mealy-mouthed “I’m evolving” waffle for the first 3-1/2 years of his presidency, then (when gay donors started making threats) announced his “evolution” back to where he started in the 1990′s.

Obama has changed his position on gay marriage, but not his principles. He has no principles.

It’s all about bundling:

Here are 10 notable LGBT major fundraisers in the Obama campaign, as well is a list of known LGBT bundlers for Obama:

Laura Ricketts Chicago

Amount raised (range): $100,000–$200,000
Occupation: CEO of Ecotravel.com; co-owner, Chicago Cubs
Other political campaigns donated to this year: Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Tim Kaine (former Democratic Virginia governor, now running for retiring Sen. Jim Webb’s seat)

Ricketts became the first openly gay co-owner of a Major League Baseball team when her family bought the Cubs and Wrigley Field in 2009 from the Tribune Company for $845 million (Ricketts’s father, J. Joseph Ricketts, is the founder of Omaha-based TD Ameritrade). A member of Lambda Legal’s national leadership council, she lives with her partner, Heidi Grathouse, in Chicago. Last year, Ricketts gave birth to a daughter, the couple’s first child. “I came out to my family I would say early to mid-30s,” she told the Windy City Times in a 2010 interview. “I think for a long time I wasn’t really out to myself growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, to a Catholic conservative family. … I think that [coming out] really couldn’t have been a better experience.”  

Michael S. Smith and James Costos
Los Angeles

Amount raised (range): $500,000+
Occupation: Smith is an interior designer; Costos is an HBO executive

Smith is the current White House decorator, lauded by First Lady Michelle Obama for a “family friendly” sensibility that appears to simultaneously attract a Hollywood royalty/media mogul clientele: He has also worked with Steven Spielberg, Rupert Murdoch, Dustin Hoffman, and Michelle Pfeiffer, according to the Washington Post. Costos is vice president of licensing and retail at HBO, where an expansive stable of True Blood merchandise is under his purview, among other items tied to the network’s programming. In June, the couple hosted a fundraiser for the campaign, attended by Mrs. Obama, at their Bel-Air home (featured here in Elle Décor).

FLconservative on May 10, 2012 at 11:11 PM

“Here in Washington you’ll have the chance to make your voice heard on the issue of making sure that everybody, regardless of sexual orientation, is treated fairly,” Obama said to loud applause…

This is such a crock. They can vote on it now, and so can every other state. Obama basically took the most chicken-sh*t approach by saying he personally approves of it, but it should be left up to the states. So, his coming out party changes absolutely nothing.

Typical Obama: so much hype, such a hysterical reaction by his supporters, but accomplishes absolutely nothing. I think that after the initial euphoria wears off the left will say: now what? And the “now what?” is that states will continue to vote on this issue just like they have been and they will continue to lose. Then they will be even more frustrated for buying into the Obama hype.

I was wondering what happened to all of McCain’s advisers…guess they all ended up with Biden for coffee last Sunday morning…

Another reason to vote for ABO:

China

The United States on Wednesday opened its banking market to ICBC, China’s biggest bank, for the first time clearing a takeover of a US bank by a Chinese state-controlled company.

Just days after high-level US-China economic talks in Beijing, the Federal Reserve approved an application from Industrial and Commercial Bank of China to buy a majority stake in the US subsidiary of Bank of East Asia.

The transaction will make ICBC the first Chinese state-controlled bank to acquire retail bank branches in the United States.

Isn’t evolution supposed to be a continuous process that never ends?

Romney added that he is “fine” with gay couples adopting children but “to call that marriage is a real misleading of the word.”

Gaybies!

;)

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on May 10, 2012 at 10:55 PM

I will never vote for a person that thinks this is fine. I am against Gay Marriage mostly to make sure that children have the advantage of a Father and Mother.

Obviously Mitt could care less about families. How he can call himself a Mormon is beyond my comprehension. Mormons are all about families and how important it is to have a father and a mother.

Of course then too Mitt broke the Mass Constitution by forcing county clerks to issue Marriage Licences to Gays after the legislator said no to gay marriage. Mitt just did it anyway. For Mitt to say he is against Gay Marriage is a far bigger change than Obama did this week.

The local radio station 88.1 KDHX has a Reggae show on Sat night…

I used to call Professor Skank(The DJ) every Sat. requesting this song.

Sometimes he entertained me…othertimes…not so much.

That figures. Your the Santy guy arent you?

Cuz hetero’s are doing a bang up job raising kids-married or not.

One issue voter? Focus on the family kinda guy? Maybe say something thought provoking.
