President Obama Vows At Midtown LGBT Gala To Keep On Fighting For Same-Sex Marriage June 23, 2011 8:29 PM
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) President Barack Obama urged his supporters to recapture their enthusiasm from his 2008 campaign even though he says hes old news.
Speaking to high-dollar donors Thursday night, Obama said he may not be the new, fresh candidate anymore, but his vision for the country is still the same as it was in 2008. Obama spoke at a fundraiser at the exclusive restaurant Daniel on Manhattans Upper East Side.
The dinner fundraiser which reportedly cost over $35,000 per person is one of three money events Obama is holding in New York City on Thursday. Money raised goes to the Democratic National Committee and Obamas 2012 presidential campaign.
The campaign is aiming to raise $60 million in the second quarter, which ends in June.
Separately, the President also spoke at a LGBT fundraiser at Sheraton on Seventh Avenue and West 53rd Street.
Saying he believed the Defense of Marriage Act was wrong and unfair, the President added his voice to the debate still raging in Albany over a bill allowing same-sex marriage.

President Obama Vows At Midtown LGBT Gala To Keep On Fighting For Same-Sex Marriage
Satan is proud of his human tool.
Code words for “I will say anything, including lie, to get your/anybody’s vote.” =.=
Get that evil thing out of our White House.
I read earlier that he was examining the “gay marriage” issue to see if it would be to his advantage to come out in favor of it tonight. I guess he decided he might get a few points out of it.
Fortunately, I think he’s miscalculated. This won’t do him any good.
Obama angered gays by supporting the repeal of DOMA, then the DOJ filed a brief comparing same sex marriage to incest when the could have remained neutral when DOMA was challenged. Then Obama orders the DOJ to not defend DOMA. Now he says he is evolving on the issueof dame sex marriage while still fully supporting traditional marriage
more votes for obama.
I think the boy swings both ways. JMO.
KEEP ON FIGHTING! and I’ll KEEP ON GOLFING!
This guy is so clueless he puts forth the idea that he may
not be able to hold onto this old
special interest group.
HIS HANDS ARE TIED, except when he’s reaching for his putter. Obama is now , sadly, in the make-believe self-effacing mode where he refers to himself as being “old news”. The man is SO MODEST! /sarc/
That must have been some kind of Gayla!
He truly looks evil in that Photo...Scarry!
Damn; he’ll probably get the Gay vote now..... (tongue in cheek.)
During the campaign he said marriage is between a man and a woman. I’ll bet he says it again in this campaign.
I think you are right.
The LGBT (sounds like a really &h!++y sandwich) community has two options — one is to support a party which by and large doesn’t support gay “marriage”, but also by and large doesn’t support raising their taxes; the other is to support Zero who is clearly lying pretty much all day long every day. Oh, look, he gayed up the military, but by and large the LGBT community only likes the uniforms on the Village People.
It doesn’t matter if he believes the law is fair or not. That isn’t the Presidents authority to say. It is his job to ENFORCE the laws and he has abdicated that.
I hope anyone that debates him rips him to shreds. He is a liar in the first degree.
This jackass also said he was against it in the debates.
COME ON, NOVEMBER 2012!!!!!
He’s “evolving” on the issue. /s
HOMO in chief worrying about the most filthy component of society.
With Moochelle on a romp to Africa, Obama is free to romp around the WH.
By the way has anyone seen O’s lover Reggie Love.
I liked Obama better as the monkey.
It is unbelievable.....a suspected mussie,commie-loving homo set out to radically change America. And he's doing it.
How can this be true? You wouldn't believe it in a $10 novel.
I will campaign to the group that votes overwhelmingly Democrat and comprises an upper limit of about 2 percent of the nation’s population.
Does this sound redundant to anyone?
