Any man who throws a ball this effeminate has to support gay marriage.

Personally, gay marriage ranks about 95th on my list of issues I’m most concerned with. Still, it’s fun watching Obama twist himself into a pretzel with his refusal to state the obvious. I still don’t get why he won’t admit it.

(Politico) — The White House wouldn’t say Monday whether President Obama’s views on gay marriage have changed, even as two high-level members of his administration have voiced support for the issue this week.

“The president is the right person to describe his own personal views. He, as you know, said that his views on this were evolving and I don’t have an update for you on that,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said at his daily briefing. On Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden said he is “absolutely comfortable” with men marrying men and women marrying women, while Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Monday morning that he believes same-sex marriages should be legal.

The administration’s “policy positions haven’t changed,” Carney said, even as some members of the administration publicly express what Carney stressed were “personal” views in favor of gay marriage. Throughout the briefing, Carney deflected a persistent string of questions from several reporters who hoped to catch the press secretary going a bit further to indicate some kind of change in position coming from the president.

The Obama administration and the Obama campaign have worked to maintain a careful balance on gay marriage, at once stressing the president’s support of civil rights and other LGBT issues, while not taking the step to fully endorse gay marriage. Obama’s Justice Department announced last year that it would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act, signed into law by Bill Clinton more than 15 years ago.
