By now, everyone who pays attention knows that President Obama claims to be “evolving” on same-sex marriage. That evolution was first announced on October 27, 2010 in an interview I did with the President.
Guess who else is now claiming that his views have evolved? The despicable Delegate from Silver Spring: Sam Arora.
This has been an emotional debate on all sides, and my own views on the best way to achieve equality under law for all Maryland families have evolved.
I think the more accurate term would be “devolved.” And, he devolved rapidly.
Of course, in 1996, President Obama supported marriage equality as a state senate candidate. Then, a few years later, he didn’t. Now, he’s evolving. At least Obama is heading in the right direction now. Arora went backwards over the course of a couple months.
So, Arora is using Obama’s talking point. It’s bad enough when anti-gay Republicans say they have the same views as Obama — when that is patently false. But, who wants to have the same message on marriage as a liar like Sam Arora?
