President Obama endorsed same-sex marriage Wednesday, just hours after North Carolina adopted a constitutional amendment to ban it -- one of 41 states where same-sex marriage is illegal.
President Obama's declaration does not change any law, but it does inject a contentious social issue into the race for the White House.
"For me personally it is important for me to affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Mr. Obama said.
CBS News correspondent Norah O'Donnell reports Mr. Obama has often said he was in favor of civil unions for gay and lesbian couples and in favor of equal rights, but on marriage, for years he has said his thoughts were evolving.
Advisors admit it was not the president's plan to announce his support for same-sex marriage Wednesday. Ironically, his hand was forced in part by his vice president, and by growing anger among gay and lesbian financial supporters who felt it was time for the president to clarify just where he stands.

The nobama “family” is really screwed-up. Just what kid of morals , if any, are their girls taught? All family members are diagnosable. I bet one, if not several, psychiatrists and psychologists are going to make a lot of money off those pinheaded marxist losers. It will be interesting to watch this “family” disintegrate or end up in jail.
I think he’s spent most of his life under the influence of one thing or another.
IMHO, people as perverted as Obama have some very, very dark secrets in their past and telegraph their true natures in such statements.
Too often observers of such behaviors attempt to perceive it from their normal thinking, while the reality is so far more perverse that truth seems stranger than fiction.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he were a pedophile and his comment telegraphs something that happened in his thinking with his children.
I'm sorry, but I have to be consistently pro-life here. I don't want to abort any babies, not even Barack Obama. God gives the right to execute people only for actual crimes committed, not for being a baby who might commit future crimes. Even then, people are to be killed only following a trial before civil magistrates or in an act of war. Obama is almost certainly never going to face any human court for his deeds, though I would not want to be Obama facing his sentence before the Lord God of Hosts.
Now on the issue of Obama citing his kids, if you read the article and Obama’s interview, he says that he believes opposition to homosexuality is a generational thing and that college Republicans who strongly oppose him on economic issues don't have a problem with homosexual marriage.
Here's the quote: Its interesting, some of this is also generational, the president continued. You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same-sex equality or, you know, sexual orientation, that they believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and were talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldnt dawn on them that somehow their friends parents would be treated differently. It doesnt make sense to them and, frankly, thats the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.
I'm afraid Obama has a point. Four decades of unrelenting liberal propaganda out of the entertainment industry has done serious damage to our young people — INCLUDING CONSERVATIVE YOUNG PEOPLE.
We're going to lose the homosexual battle if we don't re-convince our young people that marriage is a foundational cornerstone of society. Libertarians teach that free choice is the foundation of society, and in a libertarian mindset, homosexual marriage isn't all that bad.
This is why we're conservatives, not libertarians, and we need to make that distinction clear to our young people because it's become quite clear they're not getting it.
The old political props Sasha and Malia again. Likes to showcase them constantly to remind his adoring followers about what a wonderful family man he is. A regular Ward Cleaver, oh yeah, right, sure, uh-huh. (not)
And he is offering to the nation the guidance of children, children of monsters, through no fault of their own.
If you went to the backwoods to get away there would probably be a mosquito buzzing around with an Obama head on it.
What? His kids are gay too? Shocking and weird!
Ultimately, endorsement of social liberalism always lets to fiscal liberalism/statism/socialism. The libertarian mindset of endorsing sexual immorality and drug use result in consequences that result in calls for a bigger government. I believe both homosexualism and socialism go together and are in fact God’s judgment upon us, i.e., giving our nation up to our own sinful desires. Not unlike Israel who wanted a king just like other nations and He gave them what they asked for: Saul. How did that turn out?
Yes. I hesitate to bring his girls into the discussion, but it is Barry himself who constantly injects them into his political propaganda.
And usually, as you say, in a disagreeable light.
He started off by excusing his support for abortion by saying that he didn’t want to “punish his daughters with a baby.” So, evidently, their uncontrolled behavior excuses his support for killing born-alive children at taxpayer expense.
And now he says that they have convinced him to support gay marriage. I suppose one of them probably said at the breakfast table, “Daddy, you’re gay yourself, aren’t you? So, why on earth don’t you support gay marriage? After all, we’re entitled to have lesbian marriages when we grow up. We’re proud of the example you have set us, and we’ll follow in your footsteps.”
Or words to that effect. In his sick mind, at least, if not literally.
Obama hopes he will have a gay marriage.
