Obama Evolution And Devolution
Today the President announced that he has evolved on the issue of gay marriage and that, contrary to what he said in 2004 and 2008, he now supports it. But there's reason to question whether Obama was ever really against gay marriage or whether he simply took the path of least resistance to get elected to the Senate and then the White House.
Over at BuzzFeed, Andrew Kaczynski points out a questionnaire Obama filled out for a gay newspaper in Chicago back in 1996. At the time he wrote unequivocally "I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."
