Obama DOES Calculate

Obama has never endorsed gay "marriage."

There's a reason. Here's a portion of a report on a DC city-council meeting during which a bill to recognize gay "marriages" performed elsewhere:

The council passed the measure by a vote of 12 to 1. During the debate, council member David A. Catania (I-At Large) accused Marion Barry (D-Ward 8), who cast the dissenting vote, of having taken a “bigoted” position.

After the vote, enraged African American ministers stormed the hallway outside the council chambers and vowed that they will work to oust the members who supported the bill, which was sponsored by Phil Mendelson (D-At Large). They caused such an uproar that security officers and D.C. police were called in to clear the hallway.

Yesterday’s action could be a precursor to a debate later this year over whether to legalize same-sex marriage in the city. “There is no turning back,” said Catania, who plans to introduce a broader gay marriage bill in a few months

And there's more:

“All hell is going to break lose,” Barry said. “We may have a civil war. The black community is just adamant against this.”

The black community was also opposed to gay "marriage" in California, along with the Mormons and the Catholics.

Obama cannot afford to lose those votes, period.
