DNC head: ‘Awesome’ that many voters see pro-gay marriage stance as political winner By Geneva Sands - 05/15/12 11:50 AM ET

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) called it "awesome" Tuesday that favoring same-sex marriage could be viewed as politically expedient, saying it shows advancement in people's perspective on the issue.

"As someone that represents one of the largest LGBT communities in the country, I think it's actually awesome that we've come so far in advancing the rights of the LGBT community that people would question that it's a good thing politically for the president of the United States to come out for marriage equality," said Wasserman Schultz on MSNBC.

A CBS News/New York Times poll released Monday found that most Americans believe President Obama publicly endorsed same-sex marriage for political reasons. Twenty-four percent of those surveyed thought Obama came forward because he felt it was the right thing to do, while 67 percent thought he was politically motivated.

The Florida congresswoman told MSNBC that although she thinks the poll represents progress in society, she argued that Obama made his announcement for personal reasons.

"This is the civil-rights issue of our generation. President Obama came out for marriage equality because he believes in it personally. He believes that no one should be discriminated against and that the laws of our country should reflect an opportunity for equality for all Americans," she said.

I see she's sticking with that “I'll just declare everything a win, even when it's a giant stinking loss” strategy. At least she's consistent (delusional).

That's another component of the Zeitgeist.

The Palistinians do it. Every time they're crushed militarily, or kicked out of some country they've squatted in, they hold a "victory celebration" as they're leaving.

Clinton got a "victory party" after he was impeached.

I think it's a consequence of pervasive media in the modern world. Put on a show to distract people from reality. It's a win-win: keep your (surviving) followers from giving up, and infuriate/demoralize your enemies.

Of course, if your enemies aren't restrained by the rules of civilization, it can lead to problems. That's why the Right doesn't use this approach. Well, that's one reason, anyway.

The spin that I especially liked in the past was her response to the question of when 0bama would take responsibility for the economy.

Her response was that as long as the economy was bad, it’s Bush’s fault, and when it starts to recover, that will be 0bama’s policies taking effect.

Trying to create the illusion that the issue’s a winner. These Democrats are really pathetic. They think they can manipulate anyone.

That is delusional. The electorate breaks down basically into people who have always opposed it and people under 30 who are basically agnostic on the issue. Only the gay community itself is actually striving for it.

“This is the civil-rights issue of our generation.”

That’s what bothers me .. this generation is trying so hard to make gay rights equate to the black civil rights struggle of the 60s. Not even close.

They are so “married” to their agenda and cloistered with a few folks that think the same way that they can’t really understand that other viewpoints exist, much less that they exist to a great majority.
