Today President Obama scored an undeniable triumph.
He became the first “Pink Dog” Democrat in U.S. history.
What’s a “Pink Dog” Democrat?, you ask.
Well, consider the “Pink Dog”, a Blue Dog for Progressives.
You remember the Blue Dog Democrats, don’t you?
Sure, you do. Who could forget their heart-felt, public statements that they personally, strongly supported a Conservative political position (for example were Pro-Life) yet somehow, they never quite got around to expending political capital on or drafting or even supporting legislation that would actually move that political position forward.
When nut-crunching time came as in the Obamacare vote, they voted with the progressive Democrats and against their “strong, personally held beliefs”.
In fact, one might get the impression that the Blue Dog Democrats were simply cynical douchebags who publicly ran on a popular Conservative position which they didn’t personally believe or intend to act upon in order to get Conservative’s support, votes, and money.
Ahh, good times. Good times.
Well, now, Progressives have their Pink Dogs!
Let’s go to yesterday’s news about Obama’s support for Gay Marriage. Here’s the salient part:(bolding added for easy comprehension by Progressives)
…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 told Roberts, in an interview to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday. Excerpts of the interview will air tonight on ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer.”
The president stressed that this is a personal position, and that he still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own…
How did that change the political landscape in real world terms for those who support Gay Marriage?
Answer: It didn’t. This is just Obama voting “present” again or going all Pink Dog on your asses.
So, to recap:
Blue Dog on Abortion: I am strongly, personally Pro-Life (but I will not use my power or position at all to change the current state of Abortion law.) Give me your votes, support, and money.
Pink Dog (Obama) on Gay Marriage: I am strongly, personally Pro-Gay Marriage ( but I will not use my power or position at all to change the current state of Gay marriage Law.) Give me your votes, support, and money.
Still don’t believe me, dear sweet little Progressive suckers?
Let’s ask a top Democrat operative-
Liar-y, the Con Artist Democrat Donkey:
There you go, Progressives. The science is settled.
naturalfake International News caught up with President Obama on the golf course today.
We asked the President for his thoughts concerning his new designation as a Pink Dog Democrat.
“Pink Dog? That sounds delicious!
