I swear to god, this is the actual headline in the WaPo:
Obama says he’s ‘still working’ on view of gay marriage; says gay friends influence thinking
Obama’s comments come one year after he told liberal bloggers that his views on gay marriage were “evolving.” He supports civil unions, but has thus far not backed same-sex marriage…Obama says his evolving views are influenced by friends, family and children of gay couples he knows who are thriving.
I think we can dispense with this idiotic tap dance, Mr. President. These kinds of statements are pitiful. It sounds like our POTUS is straining so hard on the matter that you want to hand him a bottle of Metamucil to ease the blockage.
Look, we know you support marriage equality already and are holding off on stating the obvious (after all, those legal marriages in six states are thriving just fine) because some few voters out there haven’t a clue where you stand and will make their selection in the voting booth based on your marriage equality position.
Who in god’s name is he pandering to with this nonsense?
