Obama Supporters, Ready to Admit Presidential Candidate Obama Fooled You?

Make no mistake: Obama cleverly claimed to be a supporter of traditional marriage in 2008, because he needed to do so to be elected, and he just "came out of the closet" to acknowledge his real view of "same-sex marriage" because he thinks that it is now politically safe and probably politically helpful to do so.

It's become clearer and clearer: President Barack Obama is a liar.

Obama lied about his relationship with ACORN and about his attitude toward "same-sex marriage" in 2008 in order to win the Presidency.

The answer to his lies is the truth and the truth will set us free.

John 8:32 (New International Version): "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Evidence was there in 2008, but plenty of good-hearted people just did not want to believe it.

Remember when Obama said he didn't know that the man who supposedly brought him to Jesus Christ, Rev. Jeremiah A. ("God damn America") Wright, had said all those horrific things in his Sunday sermons?

Obama said he had not noticed. It was absurd, but lots of people took him ast his word.

Remember that presidential candidate Obama said at a private fundraiser, when he did not realize he was being taped: "You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."?

A person who thinks in terms of "bitter" Americans "cling[ing] to...religion" really does want to "fundamentally transform" America, but not for the better.

A person who disdains "cling[ing] to...guns" is not appreciative of the Second Amendment.

Make no mistake: Obama cleverly claimed to be a supporter of traditional marriage in 2008, because he needed to do so to be elected, and he just "came out of the closet" to acknowledge his real view of "same-sex marriage" because he thinks that it is now politically safe and probably politically helpful to do so.

The Obama "evolution" explanation is just another Obama lie. The truth is that he thinks that the political climate has changed enough for him to publicly support "same-sex marriage."

This year, after more than three years of the liberal media establishment (especially tv and movies) promoting "same-sex marriage," now President Obama figured it was time to say that he had "evolved" and now supported "same-sex marriage."

Obama supported "same-sex marriage" long ago. In a 1996 questionnaire, Mr. Obama, then a candidate for state senate, wrote he favored “legalizing same-sex marriages.”

Even Slate now concedes that Obama lied to win in 2008 and "liberal Democrats" quietly went along with the pretense.

"Everything about his history—his progressive politics, his civil rights activism, his own heritage—strongly indicates that he would favor gay marriage. Oh, and then there is the fact that he said he supported gay marriage, unequivocally. In 1996, as a state senate candidate, Obama wrote and signed a survey declaring: 'I favor legalizing same sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.' When he ran for president, Obama denied support for gay marriage while endorsing civil unions, and circulated an obviously bushwah story disavowing the 1996 survey, claiming someone else had filled it out. (No matter that Obama signed it.) Liberal Democrats accepted his cover story—and his obvious hypocrisy—because they knew that supporting gay marriage would have been politically fatal to his 2008 prospects." (

Sadly, "liberal" Slate would give Obama a pass: "There is no elegant way to own up to past hypocrisy. But perhaps we shouldn’t spend too much time congratulating the president on his 'evolution.' When he decided to pursue higher office, he made the wrong decision on gay marriage for political convenience. Now, he is making the right decision on gay marriage, and also for political convenience. He has known that gay marriage was right for at least 16 years—a lot longer than most Americans, including me. Let’s not praise him too much for finally speaking out about it today."

Let's call a liar a liar, replace him as soon as possible and stop pretending that "same-sex" relationships are equivalent to traditional marriages.
