Oh no Toto, Obama refuses to support gay marriage, and his sequined-heeled Judy Garland queens just can’t understand why he won’t come over to their side of rainbow.  Even though he said he never would.

The left assumed Barry Obama’s election meant he would completely cater to their political whims.  They truly believed the supporter of gay unions and rights would automatically endorse and back gay marriage.  After all, he’s a radical.  But Obama has always opposed gay marriage, despite supporting gay rights while in the Senate, and his continuance to do so is angering his supporters.

During his campaign, Obama emphatically stated he would never support same sex marriage. So, when he turned around and signed legislation to overturn “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” gay activists believed he would actually change his mind about gay marriage: “Barack Obama supported gay rights during his Illinois Senate tenure.  He sponsored legislation in Illinois that would ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation,” but he completely stood up against Proposition 8.

Evan Wolfson of Freedom To Marry wrote in his blog:

During the 2008 campaign, Obama took what many on both sides of the freedom to marry debate viewed as a straddle.  He publicly announced his opposition to marriage equality, but he also said that he opposed the California ballot measure seeking to ban it, Prop. 8—the same ban Walker ruled unconstitutional Wednesday.  Obama explained the seeming contradiction at the time by saying that he opposes any measure singling out a group for adverse treatment by amending the U.S. Constitution or a state constitution, as Prop 8. did, even though legal experts said that was the only viable way to block marriage equality in California.  Gay activists lauded Obama’s stance, but remain disappointed and a tad puzzled by his unwillingness to simply endorse the freedom to marry.

Obama, who varies opinions in order to please every voter, gay or straight, is acting like George W. Bush when it comes to the issue of traditional marriage!
