Video Democrats Evolution on Gay Marriage or Political expedience?
The following video is of senior Democrats supporting traditional marriage. Seems to us that Democrats have evolved nearly at the same time. Biden, Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Dick Durbin, and Harry Reid have all evolved within the last year.
If one knows Democrats, like we know Democrats, their evolution on same sex marriage is similar to what happened following the Civil Rights movement. The same people that wore white sheets, authored Jim Crow laws and shouted segregation forever, found out that with those viewpoints would not get be re-elected.
So in order to protect themselves, they became champions of Civil Rights. The same goes for this issue. Today, African-Americans almost exclusively vote for Democrats , but after each election blacks fail to see their political promises fulfilled
A warning to homosexuals, Democrats use identity politics for their own benefit, not the intended target
Democrats know that the Senate is up for grabs in 2014 and like other elections have conducted focus groups to see how they can pull a fifty percent plus one victory in the seven states needed to keep control.
Democrats change as often as the wind blows. It is what they do best. The problem with politicians like that? You don’t know from election to election if they will be on your side when your group is less relevant. Beware.
