It’s All Part of a Plan

President Obama coming out in favor of marriage equality yesterday was a bombshell.  People were surprised that he would come out with this in an election year.   But I think it’s all part of a plan.

Someone doesn’t become President by doing dumb things (unless you’re George W. Bush).  Obama wants to change the conversation, and he knows that come convention time, the Republicans won’t be able to resist dragging every crazy Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachman, Pat Buchannan type onto the stage who will be so nutty that they will turn suburban voters off in droves.  Republicans already have a woman problem, a working class problem, a Latino problem, their only hope is suburban white swing voters who are more concerned with jobs and the economy than they are gay marriage.

Expect President Obama to talk about immigration reform next…
