>> i believe we have grown to marriage equal.
>> that of course is south carolina congressman jim clyburn adding his support. he is the third ranging democrat in the house and one of the highest ranking african-american elected officials in this country. in a few hours, president obama will attend an lgbt fund-raiser hosted by openly gay entertainer ricky marine. it will be the first such event since endorsing marriage equal last week. tickets run for between $5,000 and $35,000. joining me now, washington correspondent for the new york times. again, another big event in the timing. couldn't be better for the president.
>> a very significant gay fundraising communicate. the president's advisers are hoping that his announcement last week will not only appeal broadly to young voters in particular who according to the polls can be very supportive of garr marriage but the gay activists and gay donors tonight will be the first test of that.

It looks like the queers are ready to come off some big bucks to Save Their Barry.
You know, this is the guy that could almost make me believe that people ARE born gay.
When he was at his peak, he had more good looking women throwing themselves at him than I could even fantasize about (and I have some pretty good fantasies). Yet through it all, he preferred guys?
He had to be born that way or dropped on his head - a lot.
He was sexually abused by a male while he was with Menudo.
A team of genetic researchers in New Zealand has announced a simple amniotic test which will determine the child's sexual preference to 99.9%. They plan to offer the testing in the next couple of years so gay fetuses could be aborted according to the preference of the parents.
The gay gene has been outed.
Looks like abortion will not be going away soon.
“”an lgbt fund-raiser hosted by openly gay entertainer ricky marine.”””
Ah yes, the famous ricky MARINE.
Brokeback Obama can collect all the money he wants...He’s still toast!
So far, the answer is Yes.
Any normal person going to this even better keep their back up against the wall.
I guess they decided to charge $35k per chair so they could make a premium if four fags (at $5k per) decided to split one chair flipped over.
Nothing but a bunch of **** *******!
Lol! another winner, dead.
Livin’ La Vida Homo.
Ah, Barry is out trolling? Just asking.
