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.

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.

What a pathetic lie. Who believes this drek? He is spinning @ 10,000 RPM ...... loser punk homo begone. Mitt’s lies will be a vast improvement over JugEars’s.
Big fail for Axelrod the man behind the curtain
Obama receives his orders on that from KGB Putin. Not that he needs to be persuaded.
Perhaps Barry’s preparing his children for his eventual announcement....
This is waaay beyond strange, even for that marxist faggøt
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.
I’d say it was Larry Sinclair who most influenced Obama’s wide stance on gay marriage.
Such a great role model.
“For me personally .... “
Me me me me me ... Figaro!
So, not only is he gay but his daughters are as well? Breathtaking.
Earlier he said Jesus “influenced” this decision. I guess that story “evolved” too.
"Psst. I gotta a tip for youse in the thoid race. C'mon a bit closer an I'll tell yuh bout it."
Why? Are they dykes?
Wait,...an hour ago it was Jesus. WTF, lightbringer.
Make up your mind.
The Marxist weather vane.
Hey Black Democrats! What do you think of the Morality, Decency and Souls of your President and your Party *NOW*?
Too bad his mother didn’t have an abortion.
Really kind of sick that a Father would place the responsibility for a morally controversial decision on his children’s shoulders. What if they grow up and are troubled by being a primary reason for something they later decide they personally do not agree with? Actually , it is rather sick.
