WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama's campaign says he's "disappointed" with North Carolina's constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
Obama campaign spokesman Cameron French said in a Tuesday statement that the ban on same-sex unions is "divisive and discriminatory." French says same-sex couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.
North Carolinians overwhelming voted Tuesday to amend their state constitution, strengthening a state law that already outlawed same-sex unions.

Now if they would just move the DNC Convention....someplace like Antarctica would be good.
Guess North Carolina is ‘disappointed’ with good ole Barack Obama.
Eric holder has NC in his sights now.
Get over it. And you ain’t seen nothing, yet...
Time to take it to Carney again and watch his head explode some more.
Why is Obama “disappointed” I thought his views on fruit cake marriage were “Evolving”
I wonder if he’ll be gutsy enough to risk pissing off NC by getting Holder to do something to block the law from being implemented. Could get very interesting!
Doubt Obie will find the ice cream if Moochele’s not off on an exotic vacation. The freezer is locked or she’s already eaten the stash.
Isn’t canceling conventions in states that adopt a policy they don’t like the standard? Let them move the convention out of NC. Who wants their lousy EVs anyway? Can you imagine the reaction if O weren’t desperate to keep NC’s EVs? They’d get the Full AZ treatment.
I was expecting to hear the One say that the voters in NC acted stupidly...
Obama wanted to marry his cousin Raila.
and Obumo is disappointed
that the people of NC democratically made a statement
which “his highness” finds troubling.
Free choice just sucks when you don’t get your way.
Carney..isn’t he the guy that never lies? I’m sure we’ll hear the truth tomorrow of Obama’s stance.*sarc*
“Isnt canceling conventions in states that adopt a policy they dont like the standard?”
It would be nice- then we could be certain they’d go someplace else.
“Well then, might I suggest Obama find his old sarong and a VHS copy of The Crying Game.”
Bozo can always borrow a MooMoo from MoMo!
Deal with it Barry!
The fudgepackers will just have put stay put in the northeast and pay high taxes there. Now we need more anti-Sharia legislation and the gays and muzzies will have screw each other in the blue states.
Hmmm...Maybe two or three sarongs. Skinny dude doesn’t need a lot of fabric. :)
What’s a Marxist to do?
If they are dissapointed that perversion is not the choice of the NC electorate, then just how twisted are they?
In knots, I hope.
If he wants to marry another man I advise him to move to a state that allows it.
If pervertage (homosexual marriage) were “natural”, the epithelium of the terminal colon would be the more durable stratified squamous instead of the more friable simple columnar variety.
Actually a better suited location would be Kansas.
Specifically Ft Leavenworth, Federal Penitentiary.
Where most of them belong.....
The people of NC are just not as smart as Barack considers himself.
GOPe told us that no one cares about conservative social issues anymore. Were they lyin’ again? They better be careful...
“French says same-sex couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples. “
Well, this amendment insures that same-sex couples DO have the same rights as straight couples. Straight couples may only marry members of the opposite gender. For gays to marry someone of the same gender would require a *different* right than what straight couples have. Why is that so difficult to understand?
In other words, gays *don’t* want the same rights. They want special rights.
Real estate values just shot up in NC.
Oh, I hope Holder has them in his sights. That`ll sell well with the NC voters and those in VA just north.
So this is a measure of how much Obama`s views on queer “marriage” have “evolved,” I guess.
Sorry, Barky.. not every state wants to be like those liberal cauldrons of social “change” in the NE.
As my son says, “It’s an exit.”
NC is fairly ‘disappointed’ with Obama,too. Whaddya know?
It’s also funny to see the leftards from NC on Facebook or what have you that want to slit their wrists because the “barbaric” amendment passed. And these are not the ones that gay marriage is intended to “help” - just their enablers.
