White House stance on gay marriage not evolved enough to be spoken out loud

And the “enlightened” media give it a pass.

It is the policy that shall not be named. First, frantic walking back of Joe Biden’s all-in endorsement of gay marriage. Then, the gutsy call of flat-out ignoring Amendment One in North Carolina. It’s swing state-y, you see. Obama is only for gay people if they can help him with votes.

Now? They can’t even “evolve” enough to say “gay marriage” out loud. The press lets them have a pass, but Twitter does not.

Jay Carney keeps repeating, re: Obama's "policy," "it is as it was." Does anyone notice he won't say what "it" is?

preferring the soft, distancing, indirect pronounial reference.

And since when are politicians giving a pass on making a sharp distinction as to their BELIEF versus their POLICY?

The White House keeps repeating its POLICY — but will not say that's their BELIEF.

Do we typically permit politicians to hold policies in perfect opposition to their beliefs– or do we rap them as cynical and craven?

@jaketapper Here's my theory: If you actually believe in a policy, you can unapologetically state it, not refer to it only as "it"

"It is our policy to wholeheartedly support that *THING* which is so hateful we do not dare even speak its name" = not our real policy

@jaketapper I'm noting the interesting fact that @presssec cannot speak the Hated Name of the "policy" the WH supposedly supports.

Craven, White House. How does it feel to constantly use people for your own end only?

And, win.

You guys! Obama TOTALLY BELIEVES in gay marriage! If by "gay marriage" you mean "dog eating."
