Skip to comments.Obama weighs in against Minnesota's marriage ballot
Posted on 04/09/2012 6:48:40 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Obama's Minnesota campaign waded into the state's marriage amendment fight on Monday with a statement saying the president opposes the proposal that would define marriage only as the union of a man and woman.
Obama for America's Minnesota communications director, Kristin Sosanie, said in a news release that "while the President does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the record is clear that the President has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same-sex couples. That's what the Minnesota ballot initiative would do -- it would single out and discriminate against committed gay and lesbian couples."
Minnesotans will vote Nov. 6 on a state constitutional amendment that would, in effect, ban same-sex marriage.
Rep. Steve Gottwalt, R-St. Cloud, one of the House supporters of the marriage amendment, said he was "disappointed" in the Obama campaign statement.
"Frankly, I think it's unfortunate that the president of the United States is getting involved in a state issue," Gottwalt said, "but that's certainly his right."

There is no bottom of the sewer for this classless POS Ubama.
Government by Obummer, of Obummer, and for Obummer shall perish from the face of the earth.
His heart is blacker than he pretends to be
I second that!
Obama’s still working hard to lock in the fag vote.
We’ll show you in November pretender-in-chief!
Of course the First Bonesmoker opposes any and all such measures for the protection of marriage - after all, didn’t he and Frank Marshall Davis consider themselves to be man and wife? And what about Reggie Love - he’s biting the pillow while Moochelle gets to be in lights. What pathetic miserable degenerates they be.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
If I can remember correctly, didn’t Obummer say, during his last campaign, that he thought marriage should be between a man and a woman????? Anyone remember?
Given Mitt ROmney’s record on Gay Issues and implementing the first State Gay Marriage system, you’d think he’d be chiming right in agreeing with Obama on this issue.

I thought Obama claimed he was a Christian..

Yep. That was at the televised interviews of McCain and Obama conducted by Rev. Rick Warren at his church. That WAS the reply Obama gave when asked the question.
That was before the election. Now Obama is a lawless criminal Marxist, and nobody in our House & Senate seems to care.
