I”m thinking that Obama is going to help Republicans win black votes by doing this. Blacks are not so hip to gay marriage. I think this is yet another example of Obama touching something, causing the worsening condition of it. I knew, when zero put Missouri Tigers in his bracket, that they would lose immediately. Obama is going to hurt the gay marriage push.

Racial animosity has been managed well by the Dems; I don’t think they’ll have to work hard to keep the black votes (they’ll simply dangle freebies until they forget their “hang-ups”). On the other hand, as an increasingly marginalized voting bloc, the black vote isn’t something any politician should reach for on a national level at the expense of any other one (Obama gets them for free).

Obama avoided this issue in 2008 because he had to deceive white Americans that he was a “regular guy” (and the issue failed in every state - including the most liberal ones - whenever put on the ballot); that mask slipped a long time ago, and cannot be re-fitted. At this point he’s just destroying as much as he can before he’s out, and has been promised something lucrative for doing so.
