Obama 'disappointed' with NC ban on gay marriage
AP via Yahoo! News ^ | May 8, 2012

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.

“Obama ‘disappointed’ with NC ban on gay marriage”

Well then, might I suggest Obama find his old sarong and a VHS copy of “The Crying Game”.

And maybe some ice cream.

That might cheer him up.

does the Obama campaign spokesperson speak for obama ?
If so, looks like Obama’s position has fully evolved.

Time to take it to Carney again and watch his head explode some more.

Any bets that Obama’s lips will either be purple or black before the week is out? This jugged eared Marxist will be hitting the crack pipe hard. Just to reiterate what that lady said at the Romney rally the other day: “Obama should be tried for treason!” This POS should be spending his days in a federal prison for what he's done to this country!

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.

Agreed.
and Obumo is disappointed
that the people of NC democratically made a statement
which “his highness” finds troubling.
Poor boy.
Free choice just sucks when you don’t get your way.

He can use one of Michelle’s dresses to create a sarong for himself.

It would be nice- then we could be certain they’d go someplace else.

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.

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.

"Now if they would just move the DNC Convention....someplace like Antarctica would be good."

Actually a better suited location would be Kansas.

Specifically Ft Leavenworth, Federal Penitentiary.

Where most of them belong.....

“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.

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.

On the contrary. I think it's an excellent idea to have the dim convention in a right to work state. Good opportunity to show BO’s union thug buddies how things should run.

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.
