The Evolution of Count Dragula Obama
Obama indicated he supported Gay Marriage during his 1996 Senate campaign yet, his aides later disavowed the questionnaire claiming it did not reflect the Obama’s position. Obama wrote, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages… and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”
During his 2004 Senate campaign, Obama stated, “I’m a Christian. I do believe that tradition and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.”
Apparently, Obama maintained that position through his 2008 presidential campaign until 2010 when Barry began evolving after telling ABC News‘ Jake Tapper that his feelings about gay marriage were “constantly evolving. I struggle with this.”
In October 2011, Barry told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “I’m still working on it… I think that there’s no doubt that as I see friends, families, children of gay couples who are thriving, you know, that has an impact on how I think about these issues.”
During an ABC Exclusive Interview with Robin Roberts, Dragula Obama announced he supports Same-Sex Marriage after Biden stated he was comfortable with Gay Marriage. – ABC News Special Report – May 9, 2012
While Dragula Obama evolved on Same Sex, Mitt Romney ordered town clerks to issue Gay marriage licenses on May 17, 2004 per the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts (Goodridge v. Department of Public Health) ruling on November 18, 2003.
“All along, I have said an issue as fundamental to society as the definition of marriage should be decided by the people. Until then, I intend to follow the law and expect others to do the same.” – Mitt Romney May 17, 2004
LIAGRA Romney knew the law defining marriage as between a man and a woman was never changed by the Legislature. Romney enforced a court opinion not Massachusetts law. Yet, Mitt Romney claims he opposes gay marriage, and as governor, he fought his state’s highest court before Massachusetts became the first state to ‘legalize‘ gay marriage in 2004.
“My view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and a woman and that’s my own preference…I have the same view that I’ve had since running for office.” – Romney May 9, 2012
Dragula Obama Evolves and LIAGRA Romney Flip-flops.
Note: On October 6, 1994, Mitt wrote, “If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will.” – Campaign against Ted Kennedy
The Massachusetts Moderate with Progressive Views
Romney vowed to protect and expand the rights of gays and lesbians when he ran for Governor in 2002. Mitt also refused to back a proposed state constitutional amendment to prohibit same-sex marriage in 2002 because Romney promised that domestic partner benefits would be “hallmark of my leadership as governor,” according to the Boston Globe.
“But marriage is a special institution between a man and a woman, and our Constitution and laws should reflect that.” – Romney’s reaction to the Supreme Judicial Court’s ruling that same-sex marriage is protected in the Massachusetts Constitution. Nov 18, 2003
On May 17, 2004, Romney enforced the Unconstitutional Supreme Judicial Court Ruling knowing that the ‘right to same-sex marriage’ was NOT in the Massachusetts Constitution. According to the New York Times, Romney promised the Log Cabin Republicans that he would not champion a fight against same-sex marriage in 2002.
In order to ‘legalize’ Same-Sex Marriage, four judges of the Supreme Judicial Court ruled Chapter 207 of of the Massachusetts General Laws as unconstitutional yet, the marriage statute (Chapter 207) was never changed, repealed, or suspended. In other words, the Constitutional marriage statute is in full effect and prohibits Same-Sex Marriage.
Romney knew he was violating Chapter 207 Section 48 when he ordered town clerks to issue Gay marriage licenses beginning on May 17, 2004.
