Skip to comments.Obama backs gay marriage, answering speculation on 'evolving' position (Sign an Executive Order)
Posted on 05/09/2012 1:33:03 PM PDT by tobyhill
President Obama on Wednesday endorsed same-sex marriages, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to take that position following days of speculation about his "evolving" stance on the issue.
The president used a hastily called TV interview to make his position clear.
"At a certain point, I've 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 ABC News.
The president, who was previously opposed to the unions, explained that he's gone through an "evolution." Obama said he initially thought civil unions would suffice as a vehicle to give same-sex couples the rights commensurate with those of heterosexual couples. "I'd hesitated on gay marriage in part because I thought civil unions would be sufficient," he said.

next obama triangulation?
He himself comes out of the closet.
He’s still trying to walk the fence. “For me personally....”
Might as well come on out. NC is out of play. I wonder who else he can completely make look like a fool?
BHO will come out of the closet with a new birff certificate for Barricky O’homo aka Danny de Fag.
To win re-election, Obama would embrace the devil...and probably will, anyway.
This whole charade is amazing.
We should not be surprised at this. He has always been a liberal and he always will be a liberal and his beliefs will always fall on that side of an issue. But on the bright side, this gives the republicans some ammo for campaign ads.
He Had a wet dream about his Lover Larry Sinclair and Now he wants to Marry Him
I hope that some reporter with guts asks Obama if he’s comfortable with the idea of Malia or Sasha marrying another woman in a few years.
That was the last nail in his coffin. Imagine what the WH internal polls are showing! George Step on my toes said people under 40 are 60/40 in favor of Gay “marriage” as if THAT will get them to vote. Of course they will just disregard the fact that they were’nt voting before and say “Hey now that Obama is for Gay marriage who cares that I’m out of work? He offers me no hope for anything but a life of misery,but I was wrong to ever decide NOT to vote - I’ll be there!” Yeah right!
And PLEASE OBAMA DO IT WITH AN EXECUTIVE ORDER AND YOU”LL BE LUCKY TO GET 35%.
He didn't want to do this because this position may alienate some blacks, but for Bambi money is King.
Hussein stirs shit once again.
He signs an Executive Order on this and he wipes out the 10th Amendment completely. Impeachment must take place upon this illegal action.
Not quite enough to make me vote for WrongMe, only enough to think about this now...
And I thought Joe was the gift that keeps on giving.
For the most part.
However, there is a difference between liberals and leftists.
Liberals are just pawns in the war the leftists have been waging on America for well over a hundred years.
As a leftist, Obammie the Commie seeks to destroy America. He will use any tool and any agenda item to succeed at that. The left is the one who introduced the anti-establishment agenda items in American politics? Why? The communists and socialists knew they could not conquer America, that America had to collapse under its own weight (both economic and cultural) from having rotted within. Thus they launched a massive culture war in order to destroy all of our traditional, Judeo-Christian values.
This is just another tool in Obammie the Commie’s war chest, just another play in rotting America from within, another tool to pit one group of Americans against another.
Liberals are just stupid, blind dupes in this battle. Those who are aware of what is at stake and support this culture war are not liberals, they are leftists.
