    CNN) – A well-known, openly gay supporter of Mitt Romney in New York has decided to withdraw his support for Romney and back President Barack Obama instead.

    The clincher: Romney's stance on same-sex marriage.


    CNN pressed White: Why now, given that Romney's stance is not new?

    "I had a very visceral reaction to him – he had a great opportunity… to get on the right side of history," White responded. "And to be someone to the country that helps to unite us, versus what divides us. And I just think his very proactive intention to pounce on this issue now has sent me to the other side."

    "Now, I feel like he's declared war on my marriage. And I could just sit back and not say anything. Or I could do something about it. And I've chosen to do something about it."

    I read this earlier and it made chuckle with glee. I'm enjoying all these fragmented reactions and consequences to Obama merely stating a clarified stance on marriage. It's opened up a more of pandora's Box than originally thought. Both for and against the president. However immediately after he made the announcement i thought that strategy wise, the only republican/conservatives that could potentially vote for Barack would be gay or gay supporting conservatives who are conservative fiscally and loathe government spending.. but otherwise are "liberal".. those are usually conflicted log cabins and conservative leaning "progressives" who don't go to church and like their sodomy but don't admit it. Every other conservative is staunch and stubborn. It looks like that side of the plan is working to a degree.
