Obama started saying in 2010 that his views were evolving on the issue and in May 2012 Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage, citing “the evolution that I went through.”
But privately, Axelrod wrote that Obama made no secret of his support for same-sex marriage.
“I just don’t feel my marriage is somehow threatened by the gay couple next door,” Obama said, according to Axelrod’s book.
In the chapter, in which he notes the “recurring tension between Obama the idealist and Obama the politician,” Axelrod writes that Obama’s public stance didn’t seem to sit well with him.
“Obama never felt comfortable with his compromise and, no doubt, compromised position,” Axelrod writes. “He routinely stumbled over the question when it came up in debates or interviews. ‘I’m just not very good at bulls—ting,’ he said with a sigh after one such awkward exchange.”
Axelrod’s book only confirms previous reports that Obama had, in fact, supported gay marriage for a long time.
And yet because he holds the politically correct position, there will be no outrage over the fact that the President of the United States flat out lied to all of us for years.
