I’m pretty convinced O-Blame-Bush made a big-time mistake. His campaign is in their own echo chamber and they hear from everyone that gay marriage is a winner! It is clear from all the White House gay paraphenalia that this announcement was pending sooner or later. But I don’t believe the 50-50 polls on this issue. Way to many real polls have said no way.

North Carolina must have been a shock this week! Especially since this is where their convention will be. Dems,please decide to move it out of NC. That should be a total logistical nightmare.

And ... with his numbers dropping like a rock, maybe Hillary will take the plunge. Not likely, but possible, especially with Bill encouraging her. (He really, really, wants to be co-president.) She wants to run in 2016, but not after, hopefully a successful Romney admin. Now might look more tempting if they all start to figure he’s totally lost it.

Oh, yes, total democrat disarry. Smells nice.

The 24 percent of Democrats who say they are more likely to vote for 0 were going to vote for him anyway. The 52 percent of Republicans who said they were more likely to vote against 0 were going to vote against him anyway (OK, maybe they are less likely to vote third party).

The 10 percent of Dems OTOH, who are now less likely to vote for 0 is a big deal as are the 23 percent of independents who are now less likely to vote for him.

0 stepped in it again.

Maybe it has something to do with the political pandering and the idea that the guy is a prostitute who will say or do anything to get himself elected.

We're not talking about Romney.

He is either a dumbass or he already concluded that he’ll lose the election and wants to go down in flames making a statement.

He wants to be the new male Oprah on TV after he loses. To do that, he'll need a lot of big-time Hollywood celebrity guests lined up to kick off his show. For that to happen, he needs to pander to the liberal agenda big time, especially when it comes to courting gay support. They'll respect him if he goes down in flames fighting for their cause, but not if he tries to be moderate and loses. One thing I can guarantee, just because Obama loses the election, does not mean it's the last you'll see of him. Far from it. He will continue being the biggest political celebrity in history. And he'll always be able to hold out the fact that he can still try running again for another term if he wants to, and will probably eventually do it and win the nomination. But only if he goes as hard left as possible now and gets the base on his side. Do that, and he can go on being a celebrity and win the nomination again someday. Just look at the Democrat field...they don't have anyone lined up who will be able to appeal to the base as much as Obama. He's got the nomination lined up to run again any time he wants it.

Twas merely a calculated fundraising ploy amidst a well timed Washington post hit piece. A test run if anything. Attention spans are short and they are well aware of that. Doubt any of the duplicitous statement he made will be campaign fodder later on. His forgetting about the scale and scope of the recession should be front and center if Romney’s folks aren’t of the McCain cloth.
