Is Obama intent on destroying the Democratic Party? One might think so after seeing the dramatic losses Democrats suffered in 2010 after only two years of hope and change in power. Now he’s put them on the defensive again with his “evolution” on gay marraige.
That didn?t take long. Just over a week since President Obama flip-flopped to endorse gay marriage, a significant split among Democrats has opened and threatens to become Grand Canyon-wide in moderate and conservative states where congressional candidates fear the issue will sink their election chances… The issue is helping Obama raise money in liberal circles, but the South Dakota and North Carolina fight shows that it is also energizing conservatives and threatening establishment Democrats in red states.
The Washington Examiner also discusses Senator Johnson’s timid approach to gay marriage as it was reported in Tom Lawrence’s column from the MDR.
As for Varilek, he doesn?t appear to be alone in his opposition to Obama?s views. When the Daily Republic asked Johnson about his view, he deferred to a state law barring gay marriage. ?Some states choose to allow it and some states don?t.?
