Doesn’t this reek of the AARP and the AMA supporting Obamacare over the opinions and views of the elderly and doctors?
The NAACP sells its soul and out its peeps in order to back Barack Obama and his endorsement of gay marriage. A hue & cry went through out the black community and the black churches following Barack Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage. make no mistake about it, the black community does not support gay marriage and if asked, they will say yes only not to go against their leader, Barack Obama. As the Gateway Pundit states, these far Left lapdogs will stop at nothing to support Obama.
The board of the NAACP, one of the nation’s oldest and largest African American advocacy organizations, has passed a resolution supporting gay marriage in the wake of President Obama’s public endorsement of same-sex unions.
“The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure the political, social and economic equality of all people,” board chair Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement following passage of the resolution on Saturday. “We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law.”
The chairman emeritus, Julian Bond, had already pledged his support earlier this week as part of a coalition of black leaders trying to tamp down speculation that Obama’s support of gay marriage would divide the black community.
Obama Can Kiss North Carolina Goodbye … Rasmussen Election Poll 2012: North Carolina President North Carolina – Romney 51%, Obama 43%
RUT-ROH … more bad polling data for Barack Obama. The Tar Heel state is turning into an unmitigated disaster for North Carolina.
In a Rasmussen poll following Obama’s flip-flopping on the “Gay marriage” issue, Mitt Romney takes a 51% to 43% lead in North Carolina. The two were nearly tied just a month ago. However, that was then and this is now that Obama has become the “first gay” President. No sooner had 61% of North Carolinians voted for a referendum adopting a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, than Obama declared himself in favor of gay marriage and insulted Tar Heel voters. This was certain to take NC out of the so-called battleground states and into the leans Republican.
Mitt Romney has moved out to an eight-point lead over President Obama in North Carolina after the two men were virtually tied a month ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State shows the putative Republican nominee earning 51% of the vote to Obama’s 43%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
To make matters worse and completely awkward for Barack Obama and Democrats is that the Democrat National Convention is to be held in North Carolina later this summer. Oops.
President Barack Obama’s decision in February 2011 to hold the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina looked like a bold move to reclaim a state he’d won in 2008. Today, it’s more like an awkward fit.
The state’s Democratic Party is mired in a sexual harassment scandal. Voters just approved a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, which conflicts with Obama’s view on the issue. Convention fundraising has been slow, and labor unions tapped to fill the financial gap are angry the convention will be in a city — Charlotte — with no unionized hotels and in a state where compulsory union membership or the payment of dues is prohibited as an employment condition.
MSNBC’s Arrogent Lib Chris Matthews Says to Black Pastor on Gay Marriage: “I Hope You Evolve” (Video)
Chris Matthews, the MSNBC host who usually plays the race card and deems folks racist who do not agree with his opinion, has entered new and appalling territory. Matthews said to black pastor Bishop Harry Jackson, who opposes gay marriage, … “I hope you evolve”. Really? So much for someone having a differing opinion and set of religious values. I guarantee if anyone on the Right made the comment to a black individual that I hope they evolve, would be called a racist.
Hardball anchor Chris Matthews, who routinely smears his political opponents as racist, on Monday lectured an African American minister who opposes gay marriage, “I hope you evolve.” The host patronizingly added, “I’m just teasing.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.] How would he (or MSNBC for that matter) react if a conservative said such a thing to a black leader?
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think he would have been chasing after the kid with long hair and cutting his hair or he would have been the one protecting the kid with long hair in high school?
BISHOP HARRY JACKSON: He would have been protecting the kid with long hair.
MATTHEWS: Right. I thought so. But you’re with the guy who was going after the kid with long hair.
JACKSON: No, no, no. I’m not necessarily with him right now.
MATTHEWS: Oh, you’re not with Romney?
JACKSON: I’m not with Romney at this point. I want to say something about righteousness and justice. The Bible talks very clearly about how righteousness, which is like personal morality and holiness. It also talks about justice. What’s broken in American politics is that the Democrats think they own social justice. The Republicans think they own righteousness, but the Bible doesn’t take righteousness or justice, it takes righteousness and justice.
JACKSON: Why not let the Muslims have polygamy and bigamy?
MATTHEWS: Mr. Bishop, I hope you evolve. Thank you very much. I’m just teasing.
JACKSON: That’s all right.
The position taken by President Barack Obama is going to hurt him dearly in the black churches. Now its up to the MSM to go after those blacks and demonize them.
WELCOME TO THE POLITICS OF DISTRACTION … The economy is in shambles, a record number of Americans are on food stamps, one in three Americans are underemployed, the US debt is out of control and even the fabricated unemployment rate is over 8% … however, the news story of the day is Barack Obama, the first gay president.
From Newsweek magazine :
UPDATE: Newsweek forwards the following preview for Sullivan’s piece:
It’s easy to write off President Obama’s announcement of his support for gay marriage as a political ploy during an election year. But don’t believe the cynics. Andrew Sullivan argues that this announcement has been in the making for years. “When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work.” And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. “He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family,” Sullivan writes.
So Democrats think this is now a winning issue? Well, they most likely never thought that it would come to Obama being dubbed the first gay president; however, when one has to distract and distance themselves from their terrible first term as president, anything is better than having to defend the pathetic and terrible present economy. So why did Obama bite the bullet and finally admit his position on gay marriage? To get the campaign dollars of course, 1 in 6 bundlers identify themselves as gay. However, this might have damning political consequences to Obama in swing states in the 2012 election. As the Gateway Pundit reminds us, 32 states, including North Carolina where the Democrat Convention will be held this year, have voted against gay marriage.
As Protein Wisdom stated, Clinton was the first black president and now Obama is the first gay president. Too bad we did not have a president who actually cared about getting people back to work and the growing the US economy.
What has occurred is that the complicit liberal, in the tank for Obama MSM has taken their taking points and orders from their favorite candidate as they are trying their best to make this a story with legs rather than discuss the economy.
