Is Stephanopoulos Lying or Soft?

Is George Stephanopoulos delusional or is he a liar?

There's no waayyy this is a plan... this is a matter of core conviction says the president.

After saying the gay marriage decision is a matter of core conviction for the president, George says Obama was forced to make the decision because the politics had passed him by! And he fails to mention that the president was for gay marriage (in 1996) before he was against it (when he ran for senate in 2004).
