Another one of those great moments in centrist "take no positions" thinking!
President Obama remains opposed to same-sex marriage despite a federal judge's decision to strike down a ban on such marriages, a top White House adviser said Thursday.
Senior adviser David Axelrod said the president supports "equality" for gay and lesbian couples, but did not address directly Obama's position on Wednesday's court ruling, which struck down as unconstitutional California's Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage in the state.
"The president does oppose same-sex marriage but he supports equality for gay and lesbian couples," Axelrod said on MSNBC.
Just as egregious as our "National Inability To Just Say Sorry" is our obvious "National Inability To Do The Obvious Right Thing", lead by our newly 49th birthday President yesterday.
"Does oppose same sex marriages but supports equality" is something that you would have thought came out of the mouth of an advisor to Newt Gingrich, or some other bigot nut on the Right trying to have it both ways.
But instead, it comes out of the mouth of the top advisor to the man who just seems to be in love with his "Down the middle centrist" Presidency even on the pressing social issues of our time.
This is the nucleus of the new centrist Democratic Party continuing to mold in front of our eyes day after day, hijacking the very value of being fully Democratic.
Maybe even just as frustrating, besides the latest slap to the face to the gay community, is how this is just another idiotic political move, looking tenuous in public to everyone and taking for granted the believe that no one in the LGBT network will vote for the nutcase party.
Our political situation, even on the social issues gripping our current state, is filled with too many lunatics and "Middle of the road" doers not taking the necessary steps leading the masses to progress.
I guess pretty photo threads and posts won't convey that message sadly though.
