I -- O'Reilly hey thanks for watching us tonight the politics of gay marriage not working out real well for Barack Obama so far that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
You may remember that then Senator Obama ran on a platform of uniting the country in transforming politics into a positive for the folks.
That was what hope and change.
Was all about.
Well according to new CBS news poll the president has failed to do that.
When asked do you think Barack Obama publicly supported same sex marriage mostly because he thinks is so right thing to do or mostly because some political reasons.
And a whopping 67%.
Of the country say the president.
Flipped his gay marriage position for political reasons just 24%.
Believe he did it as a matter of conscience.
Apple's devastating because it says that most Americans now think President Obama is just another politician.
Who would change positions if he thinks it will personally benefit him.

16% more likely 26%.
Less likely 57%.
