Elizabeth Warren Says Obama’s Gay Marriage Views Need To Evolve Already
5:00 pm, March 22nd | by Laura Donovan
President Barack Obama resembles a fickle, commitment-phobic college kid right now. Nearly a year ago, he said his views on gay marriage, which he initially argued should be between a man and a woman, were “evolving,” leading many to conclude he was on the verge of taking a more progressive stance on marriage equality. Nine months have passed and we still don’t know how the president has progressed (or even regressed) in the evolution process.
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren isn’t going to let Obama forget his striking comment. Speaking to the Washington Blade, Warren said she hopes to see Obama finish what he started and support gay marriage:
“I want to see the president evolve because I believe that is right; marriage equality is morally right.”
That’s quite a bold statement for a person seeking office to say about our commander-in-chief. The president may still be sorting out his thoughts on the matter, especially as he prepares for election competition to get serious, so now would be the time for him to expand on his “evolving” standpoints with the media. The push from Warren could be what he needs to revisit the issue again.
