President Obama's Gift to Mitt Romney

President Obama beware: You may have woken up a sleeping giant. Pastors in key swing states are ready to speak out against Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage. The President may have done Mitt Romney a favor because this issue may be the one to get those truly skeptical Romney evangelical voters off the couch and into his corner.

Romney should send Obama a thank you note. One evangelical leader told me his job will be a lot easier of a lift regarding getting voters mobilized for Romney now that the president has given them fresh ammunition.

Read below from The Washington post:

Pastors in Ohio, North Carolina, Florida and other swing states are readying Sunday sermons inveighing against same-sex unions, while activist groups have begun laying plans for social media campaigns, leaflet drives and other get-out-the-vote efforts centered on the same-sex marriage issue. Romney could benefit from a strong turnout among evangelicals and other social conservatives, many of whom remain skeptical of his commitment to their causes.

“So many people were rather lukewarm toward Governor Romney and were really looking for some more tangible reasons to support him,” said Phil Burress, president of Citizens for Community Values, who led the ballot drive that banned gay marriage in Ohio in 2004. “Then lo and behold, it just fell out of the sky when Obama came out and endorsed same-sex marriage... We are going to make this our key issue: the attack on marriage.”

Marion Barry: ‘Whatever’ President Obama ‘wants, I think we ought to do’ [VIDEO]Where were we and where we are going?Greece's president met little enthusiasm from political leaders summoned to a final round of talks on Monday to avert a new election, reinforcing fears the country was firmly on the path to bankruptcy and an exit from the euro zone. European shares slid and Spanish and Italian bond yields rose as the political deadlock threatened to reignite the euro zone debt crisis. Greek banking stocks tumbled 7 per cent. Greece's political landscape has been in disarray since an inconclusive election on May 6 left parliament divided between supporters and opponents of a 130 billion euro ($168.3 billion) EU/IMF bailout, with neither side able to form a government. After Sunday's effort at cajoling party leaders into a coalition proved fruitless, President Karolos Papouliassummoned four party leaders for a fresh round of talks on Monday evening. But the talks appeared doomed long befor
