As a result of this political decision, Obama raked in at least $15 million in campaign cash, and last night, took in another $1 million at a fundraiser headlined by Ricky Martin, where he stated that he believes the Defense of Marriage Act should be repealed. It is really difficult to decide what is truly in his heart because of these major flip-flops. More and more each day, he is starting to resemble somebody the United States became very familiar with back in 2004.
Obama's taking advantage of a voting bloc for campaign benefits is shallow, transparent (the only thing he's done that's transparent) and continues to ignore the issue that nearly everyone in the United States faces: the economic challenges caused by this president's policies. The Republicans have responded in kind, as they should, but are also staying focused on the economy to force this president to defend his record, as he continues to run from it.
James Carville, in 1992, came up with the phrase, "It's the economy, stupid." In 2012, we need to adopt, yet amend, and remember the following:
"It's the economy, and we're NOT stupid!"
