The Ellen DeGeneres Interview That Will Haunt President Obama
Fox News ^ | February 1, 2011 | Staff

Long before his administration went into federal court to fight 27 states that are now challenging the constitutionality of the federal government forcing people to buy health insurance, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama told Ellen DeGeneres that—unlike his opponent Hillary Clinton—he opposed forcing the uninsured to buy health insurance, saying that it would be like forcing the homeless to buy homes.

Ooooh, ghosts, skeletons, some of Bammy's gay employees, in the closet. (Bammy's Administration has employed the largest number of gays.)
Merely the title of this link alone set my heart aflutter.

This may have tripped him up legally, but it will have no negative impact on all the idiots who voted for him full knowing what he really was/is.

They all knew the insurance mandate was temporary because the real plan was to destroy the insurance industry and drive everyone to "single-payer."

It just happened a little sooner than they planned.

But what does that have to do with Obamacare?

She’s the ONLY homosexual comedienne to be funnier after she came out of the closet. The others just got bitter and extremely un-funny.

....Obama doesn’t care.

His apologists in the media will ignore this and he’ll never have to answer for it.

If by some off chance, someone does present this to the president, the media will character assassinate that person.

THEY DON’T CARE.

They’re liberals. Anything that achieves their ends is just fine.

He's got an easy out: he didn't lie at all: he had nothing to do with it. You will recall that the WH left it up to Congress to create the Health Care bill. He signed what reached his desk, and had to take the good with the bad.

It's a new Obama record .... throwing all 535 congress-critters under the bus, all at once!

"we" are repulsed"

Do not speak for the "we" I know. I have a close relative that is gay. I have friends that are gay. I feel sorry for people like you. I have no one in my life like you or the "we" you speak for. I never would speak for a "we", only myself; but I stand up for them against such remarks. I respect the great, caring, intelligent human beings that they are.

Best I move on.

I was interested, however, in the Obama part of the story.

Wait, what?

But seriously he meant what he said. He is loathe for his constituents to pay for health insurance. He’s loathe for them to pay for anything. Doesn’t mean they won’t be obtaining health care. We are living John Lennon’s imagine. It’s going to be so good. Artists can art, slackers can slack, welfare queens can fight with baby daddies over the crack pipe, all without worrying about buying health insurance. It’s going to be great. Imagine all the people. Nancy Pelosi’s crazy little world inside her head becoming reality.

Has Obama been on Face the Nation? I don’t think so. Why? He doesn’t need the vote of people who might tune into Face the Nation. Now I know he’s been on The View. You figure it out.

Hey, something I agree with Obama on! And quite well said, actually. Quite articulate.

As for Ellen, she always looks like a disoriented 12 year-old pretending to be happy.

To clarify, this thread is about Obama and what he said in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Immediately, all the gay haters could think about was how much they dislike Ellen.

Ellen was incidental to this story, but that was all they could focus on. That’s what I mean by ‘too much.’

I’m not in favor of homosexuality, but, Ellen hasn’t tried to put forth an agenda like some other activists. Its a shame that she has gone this route, because I really do like her and her humor.

As someone commented - pray for her.

Placemark for pingout.

You seem to be under the impression that people who think the homosexual agenda is evil and that same sex sodomy is unnatural, unhealthy and immoral are “haters”.

Nope, we’re realists who stand up for truth and morality.

It's interesting that you used the liberal term "haters"; especially in response to post #13.

So just one more question then.

Did you start out as a guy? /sarc>

Cheers!

But the haters on this forum are too much.

I would say most here hate the sin not the sinner, as we all know that we are all sinners. I'd like to think we all would hope that someone trapped in a pattern of sodomy would see the light. But getting someone to see the error of their ways is not accomplished by denying what they are doing is wrong. We don't always take the time to reiterate this "sin not sinner" point.

I think very assertive reactions spring from the fact that at this point in time there is a very pervasive and powerful sodomite lobby which is far more successful than any other criminal, immoral or anti-American lobby. The sodomite lobby seeks to slowly and continually generate acceptance of sodomy and this influence is extremely strong in schools. The enormous political correctness which has resulted from a decades-long stealth campaign is what causes people to not mince words. Drug use is also very politically correct and acceptable in left-wing circles, but it's also acknowledged to be a problem. Sodomy is not considered a problem by the politically correct left-wing, but either a genetic pre-disposition or a right of personal choice, depending on what's more convenient to use in a debate. It is extremely concerning to anyone who believes in the truth of the Bible to hear so many Americans, in positions which years ago would have been considered pillars of society, i.e., daughters of ex-Presidents, who are so deluded as to completely accept sodomy.

Ditto and I guess they just don’t get it that FR chooses not to promote deviant lifestyles. I don’t hate Ellen, I simply ignore her, have no use for her and pity her. Her Mom is a nice woman, too bad her daughter turned out to be like she did.

You see, herein lies the problem. I'll cut to the chase. Seventy of what is transmitted, interpreted in conveyance of language, visual, audio cues, known in the parlance as physiognomy, reading of body language,visual cues, voice pitch that is lost, not at all transmitted via email. The Wall Street Journal reported that the missing visual cues conveyed in person, on the phone, does not get transmitted, the results of misread, improper interpretation in which email's glaring short-comings runs in the hundreds of millions of dollars lost as a result.

The attempt to compensate for email's horrendously poor means of communication has been the appearance of emoticons, in all the various iterations towards improved language conveyance but which has overwhelmingly failed overall.

So what is all this Sturm und Drang got to do with alll the tea in China? In person, you would never lose sight of the way I've been projecting myself to you, the exaggerated facial expression, voice inflection unmistakable in the sarcasm, irony,tongue-in-cheek style, the same sort of persona, in which all my messages were sent in low-key, good-natured, wholly disarming way that was totally lost on you. :-)

The problem with the homosexual movement has nothing to do with homosexuality, and everything to do with a sub-group’s striving to create a state of hostile tension between homosexuals and non-homosexuals, based on presumed (and usually nonexistent) discrimination.

It would be the same if any other personal characteristic became a permanent feature of a group’s claim to fame. If people with facial moles rallied for equal rights, and every political statement from them had something to do with facial mole rights, we would all get tired in a hurry. That’s where the homosexual movement finds itself today: boring, over-played, irrelevant, not consequential.

But the haters on this forum are too much.

From a purely logical and economic standpoint, for all the athiests and agnostics out there, us "crazy" Christians out there aren't recommending anything that is bad when we point out that the Bible says sexual relations should only be between a husband and wife; it avoids many problems of society that today people think the government needs to fix (think about not having your own kids having babies before they move out, or more government spending to have the government pay for other people's kids having kids.

It's a good idea to also keep in mind that fornication is also sinful behavior, i.e., any sex outside of wedlock. That should help many to become convicted of their own sin and need for salvation. Remember, Jesus words remind us that sin is sin; if I commit sin A and someone else sin B I should definitely not be pointing out sin B and hiding my own sin A. God is no respector of persons; we are all equal in his eyes. How many times does the Bible admonish us to not be hypocrites ?

The big concern as a nation - The United States of America - when we start having our government change it's laws to actually condone sin then our nation is in serious trouble. So far we have not completely legalized robbery and murder, though we certainly have made jail the Ritz-Carlton compared to when the country started. Oh, and if your mother has someone kill you in her womb before you are "viable" that's legal. Really, of course, you were perfectly "viable" from the moment you were conceived, other than the killing part, but hey, what's logic got to do with it.
