Breaking! Obama Evolves Back To Gay Marriage Stance He Held In 1996

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Congratulations, Gays! President Barack Obama has finally come out of the closet, REPORTEDLY, about his belief that gay people should have the same marriage rights as Kim Kardashian and that goofball, whatshisfuck. Of course, liberals have always believed that he always believed this, mostly because he said so, back in 1996, when he was not yet running for president. But then he did run for president, so he evolved. And now he evolved again, it looks like. (He has not been a Profile in Courage on this, we are saying.) But you know, it’s cool, bygones!

And now Martin Bashir is all over Your Wonkette’s teevee making blah-de-blah, so we have switched to our lover, Shep Smith, who is very happy that BO has joined him in the 21st Century, and WHY has Fox not fired him yet? It is all probably Joe Biden’s fault for letting the gaffe out of the bag, which led to Worst Press Secretary Ever, Jay Carney, getting reamed in the bottom for 45 minutes by liberal media who were all “So why’s the Preezy of the United Steezy LYING, CONSTANTLY, about this” (because everybody could tell he was sort of lying), and Carney was basically like, “That statement is no longer operative.” Sometimes you just gotta go with a classic.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney has been evolving in the other direction, and has gone from being Governor Gay Marriage to now opposing even civil unions. Swell guy. [Mediaite]

Does this mean Obama will also evolve back to his super sexy 1990s self?

otakuboyt May 9, 2012 at 3:31 pm

If he's evolving back and forth does that make him a Digimon?

Mitt Rmoney?

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I often wonder if him quitting smoking led to many of the disappointments in his administration. Can you imagine jonesing for a cig an having to put up with Republicans at the same time? We're lucky he hasn't gone postal on everyone.

AlterNewt May 9, 2012 at 3:41 pm

I suspect that the smoking thing is evolving back and forth, as well.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 9, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Wouldn't it be interesting if you mapped when he had cigs vs. when he has shown balls, and it turned out there was a direct correlation.

I'm betting there is.

Equality_Joe May 9, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I like to think that he took a smoke break to unwind after the Bin Laden raid, for whatever reason.

tessiee May 9, 2012 at 10:05 pm

"Wouldn't it be interesting if you mapped when he had cigs vs. when he has shown balls, and it turned out there was a direct correlation."

Or an inverse correlation:
"Let me be clear: All of you need to shut up! SHUT UP!! I HATE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!"

I wish I could evolve back to my super sexy somewhat sexy not as bad as now 1990s self.

I wish I could evolve back to my young sexy late 90s self; definitely don't want to be fourteen again though.

tessiee May 9, 2012 at 10:07 pm

I wish I had the same ratio of income to living expenses I had in the 1990s.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 9, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Jon Stewart, as usual, nailed it:
Obama evolved … into a candidate.

byepluto May 9, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Speaking as resident of North Carolina, let me ask this to you, Mr President:

WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU WHEN IT COULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE?

finallyhappy May 9, 2012 at 3:30 pm

What, could he help you move to a better state?

Goonemeritus May 9, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I think by not inserting himself into the issue he has allowed many States to make the progress they did over the last three years. I am thankful to the administration for the smart way they have handled this issue. And since your State already had a shit load of laws on the books that specially ban same sex marriage what is this good you speak of?

byepluto May 9, 2012 at 3:44 pm

The Amendment also fucks over unmarried victims of domestic violence just to name ONE fucked up thing that will result from it. Too little, too late.

Goonemeritus May 9, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I agree that is tragic but had Obama spent a month of Sundays in your State campaigning against this awful legislation he would only have succeeded in increasing the margin by which it passed.

GOPCrusher May 9, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Agreed. President Obama stating that he is in favor of same sex marriage only would have ensured the passage of the legislation by a wider margin.

Geminisunmars May 9, 2012 at 3:52 pm

I don't think you can blame Obama for the stupid in your state. Too.

byepluto May 9, 2012 at 3:58 pm

No, I can't. I can blame him for opposing it for years. Defending DOMA until his base made him stop, continuing to implement DADT after pledging to end it… ACTIONS, can I blame him for those?
But words are nice, too.

Callyson May 9, 2012 at 3:56 pm

As a resident of California who is impatiently waiting for the state to get rid of Prop H8–any chance of a court case in NC to get rid of your state's issue, the way we're trying to use the courts to get rid of our crap?

Negropolis May 10, 2012 at 12:32 am

Jesus, himself, couldn't have changed that vote. Why do people think this had a shot in North Carolina, at all? You could have rounded up every lib-progressive in the state, and it still wouldn't have been enough. Let's quit the bullshit. This WAS NOT HIS FAULT, and that comes from a guy who has placed blame on him for a lot of things…but only when and where it was actually warranted.

That this silly post got 70 up-fists is shameful.

byepluto May 10, 2012 at 12:37 am

One does not pick their battles in questions of human rights, nor should they put up to popular vote, but that's a separate issue.

Sassomatic May 9, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Yikes. Santorum is going to be all over this one, and it couldn't have cum at a better time.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Oh, ew.

V572 Is this him? May 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm

We see what you did there. Now go clean up the mess.

Maman May 9, 2012 at 3:29 pm

FOX can't get rid of Shep because then they would have no choice but admit that they are not a news channel.

actor212 May 9, 2012 at 3:30 pm

It's clear that Big Gay Money was drying up faster than the santorum on The Castro on a hot summer's day.

OneYieldRegular May 9, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Great. Now I have to write a check for twice the amount I was planning to write.

Now I must find a gal to marry.

weejee May 9, 2012 at 3:46 pm

But won't you and Jeff have to become latter-dazed saints first? Or has New Mexico passed general polygamy lawz on the QueTee?

Barb May 9, 2012 at 4:07 pm

In New Mexico, you do anything you want to do if you are white.

Geminisunmars May 9, 2012 at 3:57 pm

One of my best friends and I have promised to get it on with each other once gay marriage was legal, because the only thing keeping us apart was the definition that only one man and one woman could marry. And we certainly wouldn't want to do anything illegal. So I'm afraid I'm already promised. I'm sure you are deeply disappointed. As will be my husband.

Barb May 9, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Thank you for your honesty. I am going to keep looking until I find the right gal.

flamingpdog May 9, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Would you settle for a lesbian trapped in a male prairie dog's body?

anniegetyerfun May 9, 2012 at 4:20 pm

There are very few husbands that are disappointed by the news that their wife needs to sleep with a woman. So I hear, anyway. Mine shows very little interest in the ladies that I bring home.

JustPixelz May 9, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Can I have Jeff if you're through with him? I hear he's quite the catch. I'm not gay, but I guess that's the law now or something.

biblioteq_tress May 9, 2012 at 10:25 pm

You are a patriotic American foot soldier in the War On Christian(tm) Hetero Marriage. It is your duty to break up at least one straight marriage by being gay and whatnot. That's the law now. Rush told me, and he wouldn't lie.

Next, we take down Christmas.

Barb May 9, 2012 at 11:30 pm

Yes, it is the law. Would that make you my husband's husband?

redarmyzombie May 9, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Y'know Barb, I DO look good in stilettos…

Barb May 9, 2012 at 11:23 pm

You are in the running, Redarmy.

Steverino247 May 9, 2012 at 9:15 pm

You can gay marry my wife. That way, half of you is mine. True, I'll get the half that eats (very old Dean Martin joke), but that's OK.

DaRooster May 9, 2012 at 3:31 pm

What? Rights? WTF?!? For non-straight people?
That's crazy talk…

About time.

Of course, this just doubles my chances for yet another divorce.

Nevermind that the Nazis included homosexuals in their Holocaust. But hey, never let details get in the way of Godwin's Rule.

It’s nice to see Muslim theology evolving on the important issues of the day.

EloquentScience May 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Does this take away Obama's claim that Romney is a flip-flopper? (I know you are, but what am I?)

GOPCrusher May 9, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Won't be long before Rmoney issues a statement claiming that he was for same sex marriage before Obama.

sullivanst May 9, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Obama wasn't just against it before Romney was against it; he was for-it-before-he-was-against-it before Romney was for-it-before-he-was-against it.

EatsBabyDingos May 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Good thing he didn't set the way back machine to evolve back into parachute pants.

V572 Is this him? May 9, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Obammer Time!

skoalrebel May 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Why do these radical homos keep trying to ram their gay junk down my throat? [spit!] Me? I stand up firm and proud for the traditional American values: one man, one woman, two handguns, a jug of moonshine, a bag of pork rinds, two tins of dip, and a double wide trailer. [spit!]

Barb May 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm

You go against the grain of everything I believe in and everything I cherish. Chaw and all, you are one sexy thing.

Fare la Volpe May 9, 2012 at 3:43 pm

You just like him 'cuz he'll make your parents mad.

Barb May 9, 2012 at 3:46 pm

*perk* That's an added bonus, Fare.

finallyhappy May 9, 2012 at 3:38 pm

And as I read today- even when you divorce your wife in West Virginia- she is still your cousin- so family values!

Poindexter718 May 9, 2012 at 3:45 pm

It's fuckin' gay.

Wile E. Quixote May 9, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Only *two* handguns? Pussy!

GOPCrusher May 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm

And those handguns better be good old fashioned American made Colts. Not none of those faggy foreign Glocks or Berettas.

anniegetyerfun May 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm

That was beautiful.

LettucePrey May 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Uh-oh.

Yay! But… uh-oh.

lowaltflier May 9, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Yeah, I feel your pain. I can't get the video to play. But if he supports gay marrige now. the Teatards will come out in November and vote against Obama. It's going to be a tough fight for sure.

BornInATrailer May 9, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Yeah, but Romneyboto will react predictably and swing farther to the right on this (no civil unions!).

So, will Obama gain more votes from people who can't stomach voting for Romney with this litmus test (conservatives that know at least 1 gay person they don't hate)? Or will he lose more votes from "Blue Dog" dems and higher turnout from the Tealiban?

I'd like to believe there was no political calculus involved in holding on to the obvious wedge issue until campaign time. Including the added benefit in that the longer you wait, the more the gradual shift in beliefs nation-wide tilts pro-marriage. But you can't wait too long and let the "flip flopper-y" nonsense that is to come be the loudest voice right before the polls.

I'd like to believe there was no political calculus like that but thankfully I have a functioning brain.

sullivanst May 9, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Yeah, but Romneyboto will react predictably and swing farther to the right on this (no civil unions!).

Already happened.

BornInATrailer May 9, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Oh, I see.

Hmm. I wonder if this will turn the spotlight onto what precise benefits are not appropriate when he says:

"My view is the domestic partnership benefits, hospital visitation rights, and the like are appropriate but that the others are not."

SorosBot May 9, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Really, keeping up with his previous support for gay rights except marriage & separate-but-equal civil unions wasn't helping him with the homophobes, who never vote for him anyway; the biggest effect was probably creating a stark lack of enthusiasm among gay voters and gay rights supporters on the left.

But as I said before, I had pessimistically assumed he would never have the courage to openly endorse same sex marriage before the election, (wrongly) believing it would hurt his electoral chances; glad I was wrong.

GOPCrusher May 9, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Yeah, this will be the tipping point for them.

nonbeliever7 May 9, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I fully believe Andrew Sullivan's "meep-meep" theory about Obama. Given that there are milliions of repubs/idiots around, Obama played this to his (and our) maximum advantage. it seemed pretty clear that Biden's Sunday "gaffe" was part of the plan.

Who's that commenter that always says "well-played, martini?" Yes…I'll be having a well-chilled Hendricks tonight.

widestanceromance May 9, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Thank you for bringing the 'meep meep' thing up. I sometimes think Obama is too smart for we lefties, in our various frustrations, to fully comprehend.

nonbeliever7 May 9, 2012 at 5:52 pm

It's more like he has the patience to let the morans slowly, but surely, self-destruct.

starfanglednut May 9, 2012 at 8:43 pm

My thoughts exactly.

Reginald_Perrin May 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm

How long will it be before Romney claims Obama stole his position on same sex marriage?

anniegetyerfun May 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Heh. "Position."

Of course, no matter WHAT Obama's stance (heh, also) on teh gayz, it will inevitably overlap with one of Romney's past stances on teh gayz.

If the dog didn't know how to obey its master, it didn't deserve to get married.

No, I'm not going to post the inevitable TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH or WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT screed – no, I won't do that because some things are above snark. This is one of those moments. A sitting president has just come out for gay marriage in an election year. Fuck the haters – whether they think it's too late or because they're anti-gay marriage.

YOU GO OBAMA!

Fuck you, Christianists.

Shit. Way to hand the Republican base an excuse to hold their nose and vote for Mittens. :-(

GOPCrusher May 9, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Ummm, the President's skin color was already all the excuse they needed.

Wile E. Quixote May 10, 2012 at 12:29 am

You seem like a nice person but Jesus, your post is some seriously epic pearl clutching. Are you trying to parody David Brooks or Kathleen Parker? Did I miss something here because this comes off as some serious high Broderism.

Fuck the Republican base, pop out their eyes, fuck their skulls and shoot a greasy load all over the inside of their largely empty craniums. I didn't caucus for President Obama in 2008 and vote for him because I thought he would be concerned about the hurt fee-fees of the racists, bigots, losers and scum that make up the Republican base. My unhappiness with President Obama over the last three years has not been because I feel that he's not solicitous enough of the fee-fees of the Republican base. Since the 20th of January, 2009 I've never once said "Damn, I really wish that President Obama would be more bi-partisan and spend more time reaching out to the lazy, ignorant, hate-filled morons who drove America into a ditch by electing George W. Bush in 2000 and 2008 and have been doing their level best to turn this country into a theocratic, third-world shithole."

The authoritarian slaves who make up the Republican base are going to hold their noses and vote for Rmoney in 2012 just as they held their noses and voted for McCain in 2008. The reason they will do so is because they're stupid and easily manipulated by charlatans like Roger Ailes, Karl Rove and Frank Luntz, they follow orders unquestioningly and because at the end of the day the only ideology they have is hatred and fear and they can serve this ideology by voting for Rmoney.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 9, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Hey, how 'bout instead of calling them Gheyz, we call them "Job Creators." Obama should just announce he is in favor of "Job Creators" getting married. Then the Republicans will be all over it.

(This posting inspired by Frank Lutz)

Geminisunmars May 9, 2012 at 4:30 pm

"Job Creators" is already taken. How about "Stability Securers" or "Family Values Enhancers".

Right now the entire wingtard element of this country is experiencing a massive rockin' and rollin' Turd Nugget style release of frothy santorum from their collective righty-tighty asses.

Speaking as a person whose bro-in-law (minister) decided my mom's funeral was his platform to speak about the sinfulness of gay people, I applaud you for your vision.

CogitoErgoBibo May 9, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Only evolving back to the 1990's? Big deal. The GOP has evolved back to a time before the wimmens had the vote and actual control over their own vajayjays. You really have to go back a good 50 or 60 years these days in order to truly impress.

HistoriCat May 9, 2012 at 4:31 pm

I think you dropped a zero or two in that last sentence.

marinmaven May 10, 2012 at 2:09 am

It really depends on the issue. Some issues the GOP want it to be 1950s, but alot of times they really want to go back to 1875, no wait, 1400? Oh, sorry, that was 1400 BC.

finallyhappy May 9, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I guess now the wingnuts will have to include Islam as a target of the Obama War On Religion.

So, I'm guessing Biden spilled the beans and they had to go live with this now instead of whatever exceedingly embarrassing-for-Romney time they had originally planned?

Free food? I judge weddings on the quality of the food at the reception – can we assume that this will be either fabulous cuisine that we will reminisce over in later years or a good base for imbibing large quantities of alcohol and partying all night long?

Also, am I seriously supposed to think that this will somehow influence a person who would consider Mitt anyway? I honestly to my soul believe it will come down to the straight up bigots versus the rest of us by the time Nov rolls around. And maybe we are half bigot as a poulation, but we'll definitely know for sure by then. This shit is gonna get so much worse – how do you get worse than "worst ever?" Just wait.

I don't know if Biden's "slip-up" or Amendment One or just the fact that it's an election year and you got a lot of pissed off people in your base prompted you to do this, but…it's okay, Obama. You can do this. Just relax, close your eyes, and pretend that we homos are Israel or Wall Street.

Ultimately, I think he finally accepted that this election will be based on culture wars. His record on the economy is actually quite clear, and there isn't much he can do to prove himself to those who refuse to acknowledge the facts. The people who REALLY want him gone are the ones who hate blahs/wimminz/gayz/poorz/illegals/educators and students and unions. So lets just be up front about that and have an election which serves as a referendum on national demographics. Even Megs McCain may eventually have to admit that "her" party may not actually represent anything she really believes in.

Oh, wait. No, they're not.

Listen, I keep reading this shit all over the place, but have yet to see anyone give me a good, logical reason why it guarantees Obama's doom.

Supporting gay marriage and wanting to change the law to do so ain't the same thing, and Obama came out for the former without necessarily endorsing the latter. While I find that a tad chickenshit, it might be the difference that makes a … well, difference.

Of course, all of this is moot if what you meant by "brings back memories of Feb 2004" is "the GOP will ensure voting machines record Democratic votes as Republican ones throughout Ohio."

Biff May 9, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Mumbly_Joe May 9, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I think Governor Gay Marriage might be a bit strong for Romney's previous position; at least nowadays, he's inordinately proud of using an obscure 90-year-old anti-miscegenation law and preventing a major tourism windfall for the MA state economy, to keep out-of-state couples from getting married in his state.

So again, good for him.

pinkocommi May 10, 2012 at 1:36 am

I like to think that all those people who oppose gay marriage really mean to say is that they want all the non-married gay people to keep having lots of hot out-of-wedlock sex. Because this explanation makes a lot more sense than any other rationale they come up with.

Also, they are bigots.

Tommy1733 May 10, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Naturally I applaud his historic announcement. My understanding of Obama tells me it is a timed political gamble; I'm somewhat sure he is fine with same-sex marriage, but he is also pretty conservative. I believe that he had Biden test the waters to see if such a position would help boost his campaign. I think it will because we had the excitement of electing a Black president in 2008, and now again we get to vote for him as a daring visionary. So in summary this was I believe an astute political move – he calculates it will offer some improvement in his popularity among his base, and is likely to do no harm, because the same people who virulently and stupidly oppose same-sex marriage are already going to vote for the other guy anyway – no loss, and some gain. Don't get me wrong – this is a great step forward for those of us who care about freedom and real American values. Let's all make his gamble pay off help re-elect this dude or else the stupid organized republicans and their money could sweep him out and then where would we be?

PlanetWingNut May 9, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Hey Remember when a certain President was in favor of racial integration in North Carolina…did his desire for it make those states to do that magically made them compliant…yeah i don't remember that history on this earth either.

SorosBot May 9, 2012 at 4:18 pm

That's the law, though; as President he has to enforce the law, whether he agrees with it or not. To just ignore legislation he doesn't like is a Bush-like violation of the law.

sullivanst May 9, 2012 at 4:19 pm

One outcome of Democratic support for racial equality is the South's transformation into a solid block of red states.

sullivanst May 9, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Yes, that too.

Also, Obama's "evolution" was on the question of whether to use the word "marriage". He's always supported equality in the rights attendant to whatever-you-choose-to-call-the-marriage-like-thing, and always supported civil unions, so he's always opposed measures like Amendment One (which didn't affect the short-term status of same-sex marriage anyway, because that was already prohibited by statute and with the state leg. under goober control that wasn't going to change).
