10. But even then, he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. He's taking a chance

 

either way:

Come out in support of gay marriage, and you've lost many moderate Republicans and perhaps some minority groups who have "religious" objections to gay marriage.

Don't come out in support of gay marriage, and the LGBT community and many liberals will be upset with you.

Either way, this man can't win.

As for R-Money, why doesn't the Corporate Media give him a litmus test on his views of gay marriage and abortion. Why? Because they are shilling for Mitt.

And, he does seem like the Corporate Media's meme that Obama took too much credit for the bin Laden killing has worked on Americans. This is swiftboating just like they did John Kerry. I don't know what Obama can do to beat it. There's simply way too much money to combat these lies coming from the Right.
