Wondering why President Obama in the middle of the Middle East Crisis, a possible Government Shutdown, and a lack luster Economy would announce social policy changes? Wondering why he picked now as the time to declare the Federal Government would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act in Court? Wondering why he picked now to announce the Federal Government would no longer provide defense attorneys to protect Bush Administration Officials from Suits over war crimes, torture etc? Instead, in a funding crisis he is hiring private attorneys to defend them.
The reasons are simple:
1. He needs to get the Nation in a debate over social issues to get their minds off of his mishandling of the Middle East and the Economy
2. He needs to energize his base for the upcoming elections. His base is Anti – Bush and they support Gay Marriage.
Politics over the good of the Nation. He has done this before. How many times has “Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell” surfaced to turn the Nations attention from the economy or his spending.
Hopefully we as a People have learned not to pay much attention to what he is saying but to discover why he is saying it and what he is trying to turn our attention away from. We must remember all of this as
2012 is coming!!!!
