A Cynical Opportunist

“….an overwhelming majority of respondents, 67%, think the president backed same-sex marriage last week “mostly for political reasons,” while only 24% think he did it “mostly because he thinks it is right.” This column agrees with the 24% more than the 67%, but in any case Obama has managed a neat trick: He has managed to look like a cynical opportunist while taking an unpopular position.”
