JUST CANNOT CATCH A BREAK!
He hasn't even taken the oath of office yet and already President-elect Obama is receiving major bad press! It is true that, much more than Republicans, Democrats eat their own.
The cause this time? The invocation speaker for the Inauguration:
Disenchantment seems to be galloping in at a dizzying rate of speed! On the popular Perez Hilton gossip blog (don't judge me because I'm human), Perez came right out and said that this wouldn't have happened if Hillary Clinton had gotten the nomination! This may turn out to be the shortest honeymoon any new president has ever had!
Barack Obama’s choice of a prominent evangelical minister to deliver the invocation at his inauguration is a conciliatory gesture toward social conservatives who opposed him in November, but it is drawing fierce challenges from a gay rights movement that – in the wake of a gay marriage ban in California – is looking for a fight.
Rick Warren, the senior pastor of Saddleback Church in southern California, opposes abortion rights but has taken more liberal stances on the government role in fighting poverty, and backed away from other evangelicals’ staunch support for economic conservatism. But it’s his support for the California constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage that drew the most heated criticism from Democrats Wednesday.
