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.

California voted against gay marriage.
I’m reading that he is surrendering NC to Flip Romoney.
Interesting picture. Says so much more.
I wonder what Cesar would say about someone who walks their dog like that.
“When you see the President of the United States coming out of Air Force One, you always see the dog in front. When you see the President going inside the White House, you see the dog going inside first. Bill Clinton couldn’t control his Labrador. Nancy Reagan had to exile her Bouvier to the Reagans’ California ranch. You can’t let a powerful breed take the lead. If you did that with a pit bull, there would be no Presidents to meet with.”
Not only is Obama’s dog in front, it’s totally out of control.
The Admin figured that the gay community was a little too excited about the republicrat nominee from "MA".
Louis F and the gang aren’t going to appreciate this...
You're high! (By about a foot.)
LOL I know who he is..like I said, Obama likes to play for both teams..who can blame him, being married to THAT
Or was the largely-gay Mainstream media pressuring him??
I honestly think that Obama lives in a bubble where everone around him supports gay marriage and that he honestly believes that the vast majority of Americans want it and that poll results like the one in North Carolina yesterday are just a fluke caused by a minority of homophobic tea partiers (sort of how he has explained away the 2010 midterm elections). I think (I hope) he's in for a very rude surprise this November...
Leftists are ecstatic this afternoon.
Isn’t tomorrow Unexpected Thursday?
Watch for NO BAD NEWS tomorrow morning, just a big bump in “The Man”’s alleged approval ratings.
A Great Idea. What say Everyone?
Yep, (to paraphrase Rev. Wright) Zer0’s riding DIRTY!
only thing that makes sense why he’d do this is that he’s losing enthusiasm with his base.
maybe we can help?
He more than likely catches for both teams
Matt Rhoades = Romney campaign mgr.
The guy's a frikkin genius, I tellya!
Obama just managed to do what Romney never could have...
I will be voting for Romney for sure now!
Thanks Obama for making this decision a LOT easier!
(who would of thought that Obama would be dumb enough to run to the left for the general?)
I just sent an e-mail to this godless Marxist queer and told him that he is a disgrace to the office. I pray every day that God would execute judment on him and his evil co-conspiritors.
——I do not know what has occurred but a deep level of brainwashing has gone on here. I think this is something we are destined to lose.——
I’ve long promoted the following measure of cultural change.
When the sixty-something’s say, “well, that’s what they’re doing these days,” whatever it is that “they’re doing” has won political and popular acceptance.
This shift in attitude of the politically and culturally indifferent middle is brought about by the media/political/professoriate complex. Through legislative efforts and suffocatinging propaganda, the indifferent middle comes to the conclusion that the end result is inevitable and that opposition is futile. The switch isn’t consciously considered. The conclusion is arrived at sub-critically -—”it’s just the way it is.”
We are close to the tipping point regarding sodomy-”marriage.”
Pitching AND catching..you can just look at him and see that he’s a flaming homo
