Headline of the Day, from Zeke Miller of BuzzFeed Politics, Gay Marriage Reversal Means Cash For Obama:
When politically convenient in 2008 Obama was against gay marriage on religious and principled grounds; when less convenient in 2012 because he is in need of campaign cash and wants to divert the public away from the economy, he’s for it.
Yet Obama couches his cynical ploy in the form of righteousness, bravery and hope. He’s just feeding opiates to the masses.
They will snort it up at his $15 million Hollywood fundraiser tonight.
It was the same thing in 2008:
The genius of Obama is that he has taken a message of fear, and sold it as hope. And the public buys it.
Update: Yeah, pretty much:
