After President Obama announced his support for gay marriage today, the White House sent this document to allies. The tone is soothing, not celebratory: “We make it absolutely clear that we are talking about civil marriages and civil laws. This isn’t a federal issue.”
It takes a modest leap of logic, but Gingrich, getting blown out, spins the win as a victory for his “insurgency,” “meaningless” for Santorum, and a blow to Romney, as the talking points obtained by BuzzFeed indicate.
Bring these with you to the game, and you’ll sound like a regular football fan. Maybe this year you’re trying to impress that special someone at your Super Bowl party. Maybe you enjoy the elaborate performance art of pretending to know what you’re talking about. Either way, we’ve got you covered, with handy cut-out talking points tailored to whichever team you choose to pretend to root for.
A source forwards the campaign’s official spin: “This will prove a pyric victory.” They spelled Pyrrhic wrong, but the losing candidate will make the case that it’s now grassroots vs. Establishment, “Ford/Reagan all over again.” No mention of Rick Santorum.
None of that headline is a typo. O’Reilly systematically dismisses a number of popular Obama myths, including the one fueling Donald Trump’s new-found birther obsession. Bill may not understand tides, but at least he understands the president was born in Hawaii.
