Evolve Already, Mr. President (the video) -- but he won’t tonight

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Many, many reasons for Obama to evolve:

The big fundraiser in Manhattan starts soon. The protest for equality begins at 5:30 PM.

Be great if the people attending the fundraiser would actually demand that Obama evolve and accept that we're equal. Cause, right now, he doesn't.

And, here's the confirmation from the President's Press Secretary who talked today on Air Force One, via the White House transcript:

Q At the Gay and Lesbian fundraiser tonight, is the President going to address the pending vote in the New York State Senate on gay marriage?

MR. CARNEY: I'm sure he will mention it and I think make the point that, as he always has, that he believes that this is something that states should be able to decide. And that's one of the reasons, because of the -- that the President believes that we should withdraw from our participation in DOMA cases, because he believed it was unconstitutional.

Q Is he going to endorse the bill, the New York bill?

MR. CARNEY: He's not going to make any new declarations of a position. He's simply going to address it.
