Well, well, well…seems Dear Leader has decided he doesn’t need to ‘evolve’ anymore regarding his wide-stance on gay marriage…no siree, he has finally decided to ‘revolve’ on this particular day of all days. Anyone have a clue why he picked this day and this day alone to make his big announcement…hmm?
We’re going to have some fun here watching Barack Hussein Obama evolve on this issue from way back when…fasten your seat belts, or better yet keep your neck in place because the spin factor is fascinating, but oh so typical from a piece of work such as the Preezy of the United Steezy.

Today: Obama Endorses Gay Marriage
This is via the Hill:
President Obama on Wednesday endorsed gay marriage, becoming the first U.S. president to voice support for same sex-couples to marry legally.
Obama said he had concluded “personally” that same-sex couples should be able to get married. He said he came to the conclusion after years of conversations with friends, family and neighbors, as well as with members of his staff who are in same-sex relationships.
“At a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama said in an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts.
The announcement is a landmark for the gay rights movement, which has battled for decades to win legal recognition for same-sex marriages.
But the sudden shift by Obama in an election year on the explosive issue could pose a risk to the campaign by alienating socially conservative, independent voters who do not support same-sex marriage.
