Barack Obama does have a history of making Joe Biden type comments at fundraising events. And while jobs and the economy will be the determining issues in the 2012 election, the president now finds himself in a serious bind on a divisive social issue.
As in 2004, many of the 2012 battlegroundÂ states particularly in the Sunbelt, are not in favor of same-sex marriage. If Obama mishandles this issue, it could cost him the White House. There is a 100 percent chance that whatever the President says (or doesn’t say) in New York today, some folks will be bitter about it come Election Day.
