Skip to comments.Obama announces his support for same-sex marriage
Posted on 05/09/2012 11:43:02 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Obama today announced that he now supports
same-sex marriage, reversing his longstanding opposition amid growing pressure
from the Democratic base and even his own vice president.
In an interview with ABC News Robin Roberts, the president
described his thought process as an evolution that led him to this place,
based on conversations with his own staff members, openly gay and lesbian
service members, and conversations with his wife and own daughters.
"I have to tell you that over the course of several
years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about
members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous
relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I
think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there
fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't
Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at
a certain point Ive just concluded that for me personally it is important for
me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get
married, Obama told Roberts, in an interview to appear on ABCs Good Morning
America Thursday. Excerpts of the interview will air tonight on ABCs World
News with Diane Sawyer.

Blackmailed by his own base. Support it or be outed. Grab the popcorn!
I agree -- he should be arrested immediately and all children access rights except for supervised visitation be pulled.
I am not surprised that he has flipped on the issue, (probably what he really believed from the start). However, the timing of the announcement is curious!
I pegged him as a catcher.

Since Romney als supports gay marriage, I don’t see how this is a nail in his coffin... or even a factor at all.
0h0m0 is desperate and acting like an incensed fighting fagot!
Now, “some” decent blacks will sit home in November!
The militant fagots just cut their own throats by forcing the cowardly fagot to come clean, er, come DIRTY is a new expression that should be used in the 0h0m0 era!
The fags also got Romney’s contribution to an anti-fag marriage organization and gave it to the a fag co-chairthing of the 0kaka reelection campaign! (just heard FOX recounting this felony!)
This thread should be pinged to the 0h0m0sexual Agenda Ping List.
His base wouldn’t let him vote “present”.
No, the problem is that he is low on money and has been having a hard time fundraising. He is looking to motivate contributions. He certainly will get some cash for this.
“One is campaigning on opposing it; the other is for it.”
This might flip Mitt again. He tried to run to the LEFT of Ted Kennedy in a senate race, especially on gay issues. It will be difficult for Mitt to keep up his act in the face of this.
Obama may be doing this explicitly to force Mitt to shout Me Too!
Did he have a heart to heart with Larry Sinclair?
Didn’t it start with Kinsey’s report? Similar to the 99% vs 1%.
The Lord God Almighty defined marriage in the very beginning there in the book of Genesis. All these thousands of years later He certainly isn’t going to revise the standard for a bunch of arrogant degenerates. We should take some peace and comfort that we stand on the right side of the equation set by Jehovah!

His hardcore supporters would have voted for him even if he didn't "come out" and support perv marriage. But IMHO this will turn off some of the mushy sentimental ignorant people who voted for him. I think team Zero is getting a bit desperate. "Their knowledge is stolen by illusion" comes to mind. People who are desperate make stupid choices. Now, if we can only get a real conservative to run against him.
I remember O’Reilly over and over again before 2008 saying, “Obama is for traditional marriage”.
And I remember thinking, well Orally, that’s because you are dumb enough to believe what the man says, not follow what he does. Anyone with half a brain could see the man was progay anything.
I’ll bet Orally is also dumb enough to say Obama has “switched sides”. Hah.
“think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained”
On who’s behalf are they fighting? This dude is certifiable.
“Girls, your mom is a beard, and a ugly one at that....”
Hey Barack you arrogant a$$hoele, you can’t define marriage, only the Bible can.
Probably the same amount that Amy Carter had about nuclear war.
