From Fox News:
President Obama will address the nation’s largest gay rights group Saturday, trying to quell an uneasy Democratic constituency.
Obama will speak at a fundraising dinner gala hosted by the Human Rights Campaign, a group that recently blasted the Obama administration for attempting to dismiss the first gay marriage case filed in federal court.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Friday that Obama was working on his speech and would talk about a range of issues.
The dinner falls on the eve of the National Equality March, expected to draw thousands of gay and lesbian activists to the National Mall.
Obama has, previously, stated his opposition for repealing the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. As with most of his campaign rhetoric, I suspect it was nothing more than a sop to the squishy, moderate middle of the American electorate.
To this point, Obama has lurched left with the stimulus, Cap & Tax, his continued support for the corrupt political machine in Chicago, Obamacare, payoffs to political cronies and the takeover of the auto industry. His only “moderate” position has been the continuation of the Patriot Act provisions. That was, in my view, a political necessity as another terrorist attack on the country would destroy any chance for his re-election.
Surprisingly, the socialist agenda has not been enacted with the urgency and speed that the 20% of the electorate (including the media) expected. Obama is taking heat, as evidenced by last week’s Saturday Night Live sketch. Despite the, “brandie new” Federal Hate Crime statute that Teh Won just signed, he is hearing increasing opposition from the leftists who are intent on the destruction of free enterprise and the totalitarian enslavement of the American people.
This will be a perfect opportunity for Obama to call for a Federal Gay Marriage act. He can safely announce it and pledge his administration’s support knowing that Pelosi will have his back and the Senate is unlikely to go along. His announcement will cause a great outpouring of support (and $$) from liberal bastions from San Fransisco to New York. The Gay/Lesbian/Transgendered liberal establishment will lionize Teh Won during their march in Washington and safely insulate Obama for some time.
Anyone want to bet this is the strategy?
