Has Barack Obama done something silly? well something else thats silly anyway.

Barack Obama has come out, if you’ll excuse the pun, for gay marriage. Has America suddenly become incredibly liberal and nobody but the President has noticed.  Wasn’t being for gay marriage considered the definition of being a lose lose political issue? He’s not going to attract any voters that weren’t already going to vote for him, but he’s done the equivalent of put a landmine in the breakfast bowl of every Bible belt believer, clearly he thinks he shouldn’t even bother courting the votes of middle of the road religious conservatives.  If that is the thinking of the president of the USA, and he wins the next election, the world is in for a rocky time of it indeed where anything can be presidential policy just so long as 50% of people are in favour of it.

Has Barack Obama just handed the election to Mitt Romney? time will tell.
