The Obama administration is going crazy over a new CBS/ New York Times poll that the Times hid inside their newspaper on page A17. I wonder why? The poll shows that 67 percent of American people think President Obama's change of position on same-sex marriage was done mostly for political reasons rather than principle.
Peter Wehner of Commentary Magazine:
my hunch is that what’s really driving the president crazy is that 67 percent of Americans think Obama’s stand on same-sex marriage was done mostly for political reasons rather than principled ones.... (CBS/New York Times poll)
Obama’s mask continues to slip. He is nothing like the image he created (post-ideological, non-partisan, high-minded, inspirational, unifying). He is, it turns out, a very liberal, rather ruthless, and deeply cynical politician. The fact that he is these things doesn’t bother him in the least. But the fact that more and more Americans are aware he’s these things bothers him quite a lot.
