Skip to comments.Gay OK for a president
Posted on 03/30/2010 3:10:35 PM PDT by presidio9
Half of Americans say they are fine with an openly gay president -- and they're even hotter on a lesbian Miss America or homosexual Super Bowl quarterback, according to a poll released yesterday.
Fifty percent of those questioned by the 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair survey said they'd have no problem with a gay commander in chief.
Even more said they'd support a gay Miss America or NFL quarterback.
The poll also found:
* More people define being rich as earning at least $300,000 a year.
* The director who most would chose to direct a movie of their life is Steven Spielberg. The not-so-close second was Quentin Tarantino, followed by Woody Allen.
* Sex addiction is bunk, according to

I see American’s have their priorities in order.../sarc
While the country goes to he** in a handbasket....
Trial balloon for the current potus?
Who takes these dumb-assed polls?
A gay President? They should be happy.......they say we already have one.
Obama’s not open about it, is he?
If Obama can happen to us, anything horrible can happen.
Was he born in the USA and is his wife named Michele?
Another good example of checking out for youself anything and everything the MSM vomits out - don’t take a liar’s word for anything, right?
I’m so sick of “gay” this and “gay” that and “gay” everything.
You’d think that 95% of the population was gay or something. Sheesh; enough already.
“Who would you most like to direct a movie about your life?”
“I’m hanging up now.”
“No, wait! I haven’t even asked you who the cutest Jonas brother is!”
There are 300 million "normal" people in America, but the only ones we hear about are the one-offs. It's just plain stupid!
And that 50% will only incease as Ricky Martin plans his run for the White House.
Worse yet, how “scientific” was this poll? 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair are not exactly the epitome of fair and balanced, IMHO.
My guess is they got 100 drag queens in SF for this poll, given the money required to live in that hell-hole.
Instead of falling on his sword he can swallow one.
Stopped right there. I know an agenda driven push poll when I see one.
Somebody must be just about to out somebody big.
How much LOWER can our standards go?
What difference is race, age , sexual orientation or sex? The left cares about that crap. The focus should be strictly on a candidates governing philosophy. If Ronald Reagan, Bill Buckley or Barry Goldwater were re-incarnated as homo, would conservatives support him?
I don't think he's done a very good job so far.
That's right. We should call them what they are...homosexuals.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Or was it "WET Dream Team?"
Their dream may come true. Tebow is headed to the NFL.
“Even more said they’d support a gay Miss America”
Well,,,,, okay,,,, if I can watch!
How about an African-born, Muslim, socialist, megalomaniacal bi-sexual for Prez? Heaven forbid.
Where is the picture of Barry missing the plate from the mound? Nice wrist action, Shirley.
And if Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater or Bill Buckley were homosexuals, they wouldn't be conservatives, because homosexuality is incompatible with conservatism.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
These fools sound like they’re talking about a collection of Pipka Santas or Hummels.
What’s the fascination with labels?
People, it’s people, character and abilities...
Question: Would American voters be more comfortable with a gay candidate who could produce documentation for having been born in Hawaii, or a straight candidate who was born in Peurto Rico and spoke English as a Second Language?
I would support the more conservative candidate, even if he were gay.
“phone call for Mr. Larry Sinclair”.
Okay, I get the appeal of a Miss America who’s not only smoldering hot but likes girls in, you know, that way [cue the vintage porn flick bow-chicka-bow-wow]. But the notion of an NFL QB who likes to get under the center both on and off the field...I don’t know that I need that in my head. And as to a gay president...I think the bad ones are perfectly capable of screwing more people at one time than they could ever stick their junk in anyway.
As far as the director for my biopic...John Landis. And Harold Ramis does the screenplay.
They don’t mention this was an internet poll. Anybody going to the CBS site could click and vote.
You do not see a glaring difference between being against gay marriage and not caring what a leader’s sexual affiliation is????
Dumb asses. :-)
You forgot to add, "Not that there's anything wrong with that."
I guess I’ve got a small libertarian streak in me.
That's how my generation got brainwashed into the notion that 10% of the population is gay. They projected a survey of prisoners, Catholic Priests, and guys who had been marooned on desert islands together onto the the entire population. And the survey declared "gay" anyone who had ever had any sort of same-sex contact even once, or had fantasized about someone of the same sex. I'm not making this up, that's where that figure comes from. I can remember being in health class in an all-boys Catholic HS, when the liberal teacher told us: "There are 30 boys in this room. Three or four of you are gay." This was in a Catholic school! Meanwhile, according to more scientific surveys, the numbers are more like 1-3% of the adult popluation, with gay men ournumbering lesbians significantly.
Certainly we would, but none of those men WERE gay. I can't imagine one of them BEING gay, because I have known more than my share of gay men in my lifetime. Even the conservatives were nothing like the three men you mentioned.
Vanity Fair is a pro-Obama, GOP-hating publication while 60 Minutes....you dont need an explanation.
Damn, I always forget to vote in the online poll whenever I visit the CBS website. Or watch their TV station for that matter. I'm usually too busy changing the batteries in my smoke detector, or something like that.
In that case, I don't know why you're a fan of Reagan's. He hated libertarianism.
Oh good, Obama can come out of the closet and save his poll numbers now.
Well, I’d prefer she be bi :)
Barney Frank could care less - what he REALLY wants to be is ... WAIT FOR IT ... Miss America !!!
I pitch 1000 percent better than that, and I'm a grandma!
