The Real Problem With The "Gay White House" Lights...
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've undoubdetly heard the news of the Supreme Court's ruling to allow same-sex couples to marry, regardless of state laws or voter's decisions. And regardless of your stance on gay marriage, the Court's overreach in this case is frightening. That's the story here. Not legally recognized rump-ranging, but unprecedented overreach from the courts.
But I digress.
President Obama is particularly proud of the Court's decision – AKA his latest "accomplishment" with which he had absolutely nothing to do – The media hails his greatness, ooooohing and aaaaaahing at how much he's done for us even as a "lame duck President."
You know, that same Barack Obama who previously declared,
"Marriage is between a man and a woman."
Guess he's evolved on that one. Could he maybe evolve on ISIS next?
And maybe Michelle's proud of her country a second time now? Anybody have a sound bite on that? Wait for it. It's coming.
The family currently occupying our White House know no shame. It's really all about them. Fresh off the President's heckler lecture about how it's "my house" (when actually it's WE THE PEOPLE'S house), we have this:
Let us repeat, shall we? This is not the Obama's house. It's our house.
It's one thing for the President to call the case's victors after the ruling and give a speech hailing the Court's decision. He's flip-flopped on rear-admirals getting married. That's cool. I don't really care. It's quite another thing to plaster the 'gay flag' all over the people's house - a slap in the face to many religious groups, millions of Americans who strongly believe marriage is between a man and a woman, and the voters who'd previously opposed this measure in their respective states. Voters who've now been told that their vote is meaningless.
But perhaps more importantly, consider this. We've looked. Maybe we just haven't looked hard enough. But as best we can tell, no other flag - or its colors - has graced the White House via lights at any time in the history of ever. Not even red, white and blue on the 4th of July.
Think about that one for awhile.
