This week President Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Education Secretary Arne Duncan all expressed publicly their support for homosexual marriage (“Obama ‘evolves’ to support of gay marriage,” Web, Wednesday).
I suspect many homosexuals who want to marry will find such surreptitious assurances an offensive appeal made just to entice their votes. And I suspect many conservatives will dismiss Mr. Obama’s change of viewpoint as a shabby effort at credible deniability. I am altogether certain that the American people will see through this re-election tactic as an artless attempt to light the candle at both ends.
