Our Mutant-In-Chief

Forced by the loquacious lips  of "Tail Gunner Joe" Biden, President Barack Obama announced the current stasis of his ever evolving position on same-sex marriage: to no one's surprise Obama is for it.

Evolution is one of those phrases used by liberals when someone has come around to their way of thinking. Other words include growth, maturity, nuance--well, you get the picture.

Evolution, of course, describes the changes experienced by biological organisms over time. Geneticists attribute many of these changes to mutations in the DNA. Most mutations are actually harmful. It remains to be seen whether or not the mutations in the President's core beliefs will prove harmful politically.

The President's evolution has not been a consistent development from a more simple to a more complex arrangement of his thinking. It has even reversed itself.

In 1997, he ran for a position in the Illinois state legislature. He supported same-sex marriage.

In 2004, he ran for U.S. Senator from Illinois. He opposed same-sex marriage.

(Working backwards does not sound like evolution. It sounds more like the controversial theory of devolution, or DEVO

In 2008, he ran for POTUS. He opposed same-sex marriage.

In  2012, he is running again for POTUS. Now he supports same-sex marriage.

But maybe instead, his evolution is driven not by mutations in his thinking, but rather by environmental factors, i.e., the context of his election campaign.

Barack Obama adopts whatever position on same-sex marriage will enhance his changes of election.

The hypocrisy of the left is amazing. In any event, it is funny how progressives believe they are the voice of science because they believe in evolution. Well, if they believe in "survival of the fittest" then why do they believe in welfare? Then whey do they believe climate is influenced by man and not naturally changing? I like you line that evolution is when you come around to my way of thinking. that is about right.
