The circular logic is mind-bending.
Via ThinkProgress, the Log Cabin Republicans have responded to President Obama’s statement on same-sex marriage by condemning it, calling it offensive and callous.
COOPER: That the president has chosen today, when LGBT Americans are mourning the passage of Amendment One, to finally speak up for marriage equality is offensive and callous. Log Cabin Republicans appreciate that President Obama has finally come in line with leaders like Vice President Dick Cheney on this issue, but LGBT Americans are right to be angry that this calculated announcement comes too late to be of any use to the people of North Carolina, or any of the other states that have addressed this issue on his watch. This administration has manipulated LGBT families for political gain as much as anybody, and after his campaign’s ridiculous contortions to deny support for marriage equality this week he does not deserve praise for an announcement that comes a day late and a dollar short.
The Republicans are on the ones on a mission to ban same-sex marriage, and it’s President Obama who is offensive and callous for officially supporting same-sex marriage? This coming from a group of self-identified gay Republicans?
It’s time to stop calling them “Log Cabin Republicans” and just call them “Republicans,” because there is no daylight between them and rest of them. They’re equally blinded by their hatred of the president.
