In a wide-ranging interview with The Chronicle, Pelosi said she believes some voters might not have fully understood the initiative, which overturned a state Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage. The measure was approved 52 to 48 percent.
"Unfortunately, I think people thought they were making a statement about what their view of same-sex marriage was," the San Francisco Democrat said. "I don't know if it was clear that this meant that we are amending the Constitution to diminish freedom in our state."
Now, think about this for a second here... the same people, Democrats, that feel the voters "knew" what they were doing in electing Barack Obama as President Elect, didn't "know" what they were doing when voting for Proposition 8, which was a ban on same-sex marriage in California.
As I pointed out previously, when the breakdown came out as to who voter overwhelmingly on Proposition 8, it showed an overwhelmingly majority of blacks voted against same-sex marriage, the same people that turned out in large numbers to vote for Obama.
The exit polls shows a breakdown of how the initiative was voted on and by who and interestingly enough, according to CNN exit polls, 70 percent of blacks, whom came out in the highest turnout ever for Barack Obama, voted for Proposition 8 which banned gay marriage, while the majority of whites, 51 percent, voted against the ban.
Broken down even more it shows that 75 percent of black females voted for the ban with only 47 percent of white females voting for the ban on same-sex marriages.
The same people that Pelosi believes "understood" what they were doing when they elected Obama, suddenly were too stupid to "understand" a simple amendment.
Anyone else seeing the irony here?
