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.

That makes more sense and is far more believable than his “evolving view” claim!
Prayers for our country. If enough of us petition, perhaps he will spare us his wrath.
This, and the abortion abomination, not to mention abundant idolatry ... I fear.
That was the big wow moment of this interview:
think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf...”
Fighting on HIS behalf? Does this man’s narcissism have no bounds?
The day after NC, which went heavily for Obammie the Commie in 2008, trounced gay marriage...not just in a piece of common legislation but in their state constitution.
He’s hoping the homosexual lobby can successfully attack the black voters who support Obammie the Commie, or he’s hoping that they will vote for him no matter what (because he’s black, oops, no one but he is allowed to mention that, right?), or he hopes the independents will swing left because of this and take up the slack.

what if it is michelle who plays for the other team?
A real leader would have put little jo in place a long time ago: "JOE, I'm the President so STFU and do as you are told."
We need a candidate that uses ridicule like the perfect weapon that it is. The left cannot stand, and does not know how to respond to, ridicule.
What states that he won last time, will he probably lose over this?
Here's what Romney really did.
At the beginning of his governorship, Romney opposed same-sex marriage and civil unions, but advocated tolerance and supported some domestic partnership benefits. Faced with the dilemma of choosing between same-sex marriage or civil unions after the November 2003 Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision legalizing same-sex marriages (Goodridge v. Department of Public Health), Romney reluctantly backed a state constitutional amendment in February 2004 that would have banned same-sex marriage but still allow civil unions, viewing it as the only feasible way to ban same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. In May 2004, Romney instructed town clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, but citing a 1913 law that barred out-of-state residents from getting married in Massachusetts if their union would be illegal in their home state, no marriage licenses were to be issued to out-of-state same-sex couples not planning to move to Massachusetts. In June 2005, Romney abandoned his support for the compromise amendment, stating that the amendment confused voters who oppose both same-sex marriage and civil unions. Instead, Romney endorsed a petition effort led by the Coalition for Marriage & Family that would have banned same-sex marriage and made no provisions for civil unions. In 2004 and 2006, he urged the U.S. Senate to vote in favor of the Federal Marriage Amendment.
Way to pander to 3% of the population at the expense of the other 97%, Obama.
Evolving = the liberal definition of “waffling”
So when is he coming out?

I heard an ABC clip on FOX:
“The LGBT army, airforce, marines and sailors who fight for MEEEEEEEE!” POTUS 0h0m0,9/5/2012
Horrendous to say the least.
Proud of N.C. here, and a proud member of Knuckledraggers United ... LOL

Wow. I bet he has the liberal gay vote locked up now.
It probably didn’t make BO feel any better also knowing that a convict garnered 40% of the Democrat vote against him either.
