What? Obama “Overjoyed” Gay Marriage Legal in Illinois?

Really? Overjoyed?

If you want another example of President Obama’s disingenuousness – you know, a side dish to go along with your meal of Obamacare lies – look no further than his statement last night celebrating the legalization of gay marriage in Illinois. Is it really possible, given the line we were fed, that he is overjoyed?

Obama, as you remember, opposed gay marriage during the 2008 presidential election, as did Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. All were running for president during the Democratic primaries, and it was unclear that backing gay marriage would get you through the general election.

I’m sorry, I mean they were all opposed to gay marriage out of a devotion to principle.

After winning the presidency, we were told, Obama became engaged in a tortured internal crisis of faith and morality during which his position was “evolving” on the issue.

Well, everyone knew exactly where that position was going to evolve to, assuming the polling data supported it. He, like, clearly wasn’t evolving toward a stronger stance in support of traditional marriage.

Once Biden blurted out his own support for legalization in May 2012, Obama was looking lower on the evolutionary scale than his vice president. And so Obama decided, enough evolving already, and he hastily dialed up Robin Roberts, ABC’s resident Obama booster, so he could confess to her that his aching moral dilemma had been resolved.

In March of this year Hillary belatedly joined them. And what do you know? Within a single year three grown people who’d dealt with gay issues all their political lives “changed” their position on gay marriage . . .

But it turned out Obama WAS NOT DONE EVOLVING!

Now it was time to really be down with the LGBT community and become the BSGME – The Biggest Supporter of Gay Marriage Ever.

Let’s psychoanalyze the president’s statement from last night. Please lie down on the couch, sir.

Tonight, I applaud the men and women of the Illinois General Assembly, a body in which I was proud to serve, for voting to legalize marriage equality in my home state.

As President, I have always believed that gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly and equally under the law.  Over time, I also came to believe that same-sex couples should be able to get married like anyone else.

No, turn the other way. You’re not supposed to be facing me. No, I didn’t say “I cannot even stand to look at you,” it’s just a technique.

You feel very guilty, Mr. President. You know that you opposed gay marriage out of political expediency, and now you’re trying to tell gays and lesbians that you always liked them and always supported them.

This is a very difficult thing for you, because you think you’re something very special, an enlightened reformer swimming in a fetid little puddle of preening political hacks. You had the audacity to hope, but selling out doesn’t take any audacity at all! You had to be a political hack yourself to get elected. And that really hurts.

So tonight, Michelle and I are overjoyed for all the committed couples in Illinois whose love will now be as legal as ours – and for their friends and family who have long wanted nothing more than to see their loved ones treated fairly and equally under the law.

As I said in my Inaugural Address last January, our journey as a nation is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.  And tonight, I’m so proud that the men and women elected to serve the people of the great state of Illinois have chosen to take us one step further on that journey to perfect our union.

The only aspect of your thoughts on gay marriage you truly wrestled with was timing: When to end the charade. Because no one who spends years struggling with a position on a profound moral issue suddenly adopts a viewpoint without reservation, unless God Himself communicates the marching orders to you. If God is present in the Blue Room, please let us know.

It would be very hard for you to be “overjoyed” that gay marriage is legal in Illinois if you were so reluctant for so long to support it. If your faith was so sorely tested by the notion, you’d agree somewhat reluctantly, your spirit perhaps finally at peace – but not soaring in ecstasy over the prospect of massive numbers new gay unions.

But then, nobody thought you were serious in the first place.

That’ll be $350 for the half hour. And I don’t use any of the insurers on the DC exchange.

    1. This proves we only need one adjective to descirbe Obama and everything he believes…

      * obtained, done by, or involving deception
      * done to trick someone for the purpose of getting something valuable

      Everything about this man is a FRAUD.
      No one knows for sure anything about his past life, school life, community organizer, anything he did as a state senator, us senator…etc. Everything he says as President is fraudulent.

    brothers and sisters? Spoken like a true commie.

      1. Brothers and sisters–I have enough with the real ones I have…This could only lead to some icky discussion of the American “family” and then to some “national conversation.” Shudder. Leave us alone for one day…

  2. On one level that’s a lot of hyperbolic blah-blah coming from him to take the spotlight away from Obamacare if just for a moment.

  3. I have a lot of thoughts. I’m keeping them to myself.

    Except that I thought his home state was Hawaii, not Illinois.

    And that I live for the day when he “evolves” right on out of town and back to wherever, where he will lead a millionaires life of speeches and appearances.

    And that in spite of the fact I recently read that black pastors do not support gay marriage, the vast majority of the black community will never vote for anything other than a Democrat. Ever.

    1. If memory serves me, I believe that the Good Book says that man shall not lay with man, and I’m pretty sure that the same applies for the female gender.

      Semper Fi

  4. Our homosexual “brothers and sisters” only comprise a small sliver of our population, so any attention paid to their complaints shouldn’t be of anymore concern to our President than the “sliver” of Americans who have lost their insurance because of his legacy legislation, Obamacre.
    Being overjoyed seems a little too, too much of a reaction for a heterosexual male, butt, as he advises, we shouldn’t judge other’s lives or motives. Suspicions are not facts.

    Nevertheless, good for the Illnois lawmakers, always looking out for their citizens who need help. Of course, their refusal to give any assistance to the Black community in Chicago that is beseiged by domestic terrorists intent on killing as many Black men and women as possible makes their concern suspect.

    1. Star, as I’ve written numerous times, Nobama is a narcissistic, pathological, LIAR. He wouldn’t know the truth if it jumped up and bit him in his half-black skinny posterior.

    2. We’ll see what Gallup says–their daily number drops at 1 PM–but if it starts with a 4, I’ll be surprised.

      Sillybus is back in a hearing room as I type this, for whatever it’s worth.

      1. Well, color me surprised, because it DOES start with a 4.

        And ends in a 0.

        Disapprove number still at 53.

        Rasmussen has him at a -19 approval index, worst in two months. The interesting part: The overall Approve-Disapprove is 46-54. The STRONGLY Approve-Disapprove is 24-43. So of his overall Approve, 52% is not strong. Of the Disapprove, almost 80% of it IS strong. So there’s a lot of “soft” approval in those numbers, and a lot of “hard” disapproval. One can only wonder what happens once the soft approves start getting the cancellation notices…

  5. I’m not persuaded by anything that comes from the liar’s lips. I just know Preezy Revenge’s homosexual “sisters and brothers” will also be some of the first victims of the purge if his Marxist coup is successful. His Muslim Brotherhood associates will make sure of that.

  6. Keith,
    I admire your ‘restraint’ in describing and ‘psychoanalyzing’ the Hypocrite-in-Chief!! Also, I appreciate your expressing for the ‘vast’ majority of Americans who share your worldview, the total disillusionment and disgust for the person who occupies and disrespects the Oval Office in the American citizens’ White House!

    Do you accept credit cards for your $350 sessions? jb

  7. By the way–when you said $350 for the first half hour of “couch time,” you weren’t kidding. My niece sees a shrink who charges $315 an hour–wonder what part the exchanges will pay?

    1. On the top right side of this page it is possible to make a small donation to keep this website up and running. I would urge all of you with just a few bucks to make a small contribution. I would sure hate losing this forum due to lack of support! BTW, Keith’s dog would be the one most appreciative!

  8. To save anyone else from having to read The One’s words closely, there are five I/me/mys in the first 2 quoted paragraphs, and five more in the second quote, including one personal “our.”
    You are welcome.

  9. I once knew someone who bought and sold classic cars. when I asked him if there was ever a classic car that he would buy and keep for his own and not part with it, he told me nope, everything is for sale.
    It would seem the same with O’Barry Obama, King of the Shysters. His moral and ethical beliefs are for sale to the highest political bidder. If our own president is such a non-entity, what on earth do we have to believe in? In terms of our coutnry that is.

  10. The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you’ve got it made.

    1. Thanks for sharing this link! Readers can submit ‘lies’ not on their list organized by each year he’s been in office! ‘If you like your……..!’ was listed only once for ‘brevity’…Ha!

      Will check, again, to see if readers have added a few more of bho’s ‘mis-spoken’ garbage! Why isn’t it OK to call a lie a LIE?
      It is in the dictionary! jb

  11. State senator Barry reportedly was a member of Chicago gay bath house ” Man’s Country”- even the gays were suprised when he ran for high office.

  12. He was agonizing over the issue, before becoming president, as he knew it would be a game-changer should he be open and upfront about his real thoughts. However, if one looks at his past association with Man’s Country in Chicago, which included the Rev. Wright, and the current mayor of the windy city, one has to believe there would have been a deep longing on Obama’s part to include the gay community and its issues in his administration, and the policies it embraced. Look at the information given to us by Larry Sinclair, and now by Mia Marie Pope. There is a lot of smoke here, I’m guessing there is fire.

  13. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
    appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
