President Obama says Sasha and Malia influenced his stance on same-sex marriage
CBS ^ | 5/9/2012 | Norah O'Donnell

Posted on 05/09/2012 5:34:19 PM PDT by tobyhill

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.

Well, that’s why he says he’s pro-abortion. After all, he didn’t want them “punished” by a baby.

And Jimmy Carter got advice on nuclear proliferation from his then 13 year old daughter Amy.

Well, we all know that the smartest people in the world are teenage girls. Of course it’s comforting to know that good Democrats over the years have sought their wise counsel. (sarcasm)

He uses his kids every chance he gets... but they are supposed to be out of the lime lite... wonder if he went into any details about the gay way of having sex? Surely he would want his kids up to speed on that aspect as well..

Oh, great - now we’ve got National Policy being formulated by pre-teen ‘princesses’ (gag me with a spoon!!)...

Hmmmmm...

Upon further reflection, that’s probably an improvement on the gaggle of corrupt adolescents that currently occupy Policy Positions in the White Hut....

Did they have anything to say about nuclear disarmament? At least Amy Carter was concerned about something besides sanctified buggery.

Does this guy ever say anything that’s not...

a) Written for him by someone else, and

b) Carefully first considered for its effect among voting blocs?

The only thing I remember him saying that was off the cuff and accurate was “Guys, can’t I just eat my waffle?”

Obama's (former) "Safe School Czar" Kevin
"use a condom" Jennings
__________________________________________________________

From the Washington Times...

EDITORIAL: At the president's pleasure
'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009

A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar". It's getting hard to keep track of all of this president's problematic appointments. Clearly, the process for vetting White House employees has broken down.

In this one case in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required but actually encouraged the relationship.

According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical." Mr. Jennings' defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.

However, the new audiotape contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated."

Mr. Jennings' denials about these events reveal a lack of remorse. He has not admitted that he made mistakes in this case, and he now refuses to answer any questions about the scandal. Don't forget, this is a presidential appointee we're talking about. Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants serving at the pleasure of the president. Encouraging and covering up man-boy sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force Mr. Jennings to come clean.

Are his daughters old enough to vote? Marry?

Is this a children’s issue?

But then why should logic or morality or the best interests of our nation play a role?

We are ALL at our wit's end with this jerk, and it looks like he's gonna continue the Agenda for the next 4 years.

The GOP-e has assured him a win in November, by not running a true Conservative alternative. Two Liberals, from different parties, and now BOTH are on-board with the sex deviates to change the Creator's Law.

I used to blame everything I did around the house that resulted in damage or a mess on either the dog or my younger sister.

Of course, I was 6-years-old at the time and I grew out of it long before I reached adulthood.

Obama apparently has arrested development.
