No surprise here

From The Politico:

President Barack Obama ended up in the middle of an unlikely controversy this morning — the debate over Miss California’s position on gay marriage.

At a press conference addressing Carrie Prejean’s disputed title in the Miss USA competition, pageant owner Donald Trump compared Prejean’s stated views on gay marriage to Obama’s.

“It's the same answer that the president of the United States gave,” Trump said. “She gave an honorable answer. She gave an answer from her heart.”

In her own remarks moments later, Prejean echoed Trump’s statement, telling reporters: “The president of the United States, the secretary of state, and many Americans agree with me in this belief.”

In the final round of the Miss USA pageant, Prejean told judge Perez Hilton: “I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised.”

Mr Trump and Miss Prejean are both correct. Barack Obama did express almost exactly the same views during the primaries. If this causes Perez Hilton to think that Carrie Prejean is a "dumb bitch" I wonder if he also thinks that Barack Obama is a "dumb nigger" for believing the same thing?

Did Mr. Hilton want to run up on the stage when Obama was being sworn in and slap the bible out of Chief Justice Roberts' hand?

The fact is that I don't remember hearing anything about Perez Hilton launching an obscene tirade, or any other type of criticism, against Obama when he defined marriage in exactly the same way as Miss Prejean.

So how about it Hilton. Are you just going to spew your venom at a 22-year-old beauty pageant contestant when she didn't say anything different than the President? Let's hear you use the same kind of language to describe President Obama.

Or are you a disgusting, filthy coward afraid to go after anyone who you think might be able to fight back?
