Obama's Statement on Prop 8

Following Wednesday's ruling declaring Proposition 8 unconstitutional, the White House issued the following statement:

“The President has spoken out in opposition to Proposition 8 because it is divisive and discriminatory. He will continue to promote equality for LGBT Americans.”

Almost simultaneously, Axelrod spoke for the other side of the President's mouth:

"The president does oppose same-sex marriage but he supports equality for gay and lesbian couples," Axelrod said on MSNBC.

In the comments over at The Advocate, Joe responded:

"He will continue to promote equality for LGBT Americans.”

"Yeah right, I wouldn't be the least surprised that after the issuance of this statement, Obama instructs the Department of Justice to prepare briefs in support of reversing Judge Walker's ruling."

"I believe that marriage is between a man and woman and I am not in favor of gay marriage."
