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.

Exactly, Mr. B. I think that some of Romney’s folks have been reading their Alinsky very carefully.
They literally broke into regular programming on NBC to announce this - absurd.
This is entirely about the fact that the homosexual community was sitting on checks. However, Obama will pay a price for this w independents, Catholics, and Hispanics.
He is now toast in NC, the convention is going to be a disaster. Also hurts Obama in PA, NM, NV, possibly Iowa.
Willard’s always been for fag marriage. That is why we need a REVOLUTION AT THE CONVENTION!!!

-Romney willfully authorized tax-funded elective abortions
Romney has an out; which he's been consistent on from the get go. He'll say that yes he did do it in Mass., as the governor, and that it is a state issue, and the Federal government has no business in it. That will put the ball back into obama's court. He either agrees with state sovereignty, or he says that the Federal government's wishes are more important than the states.
How well do you think either one of those answers will go over with certain portions of the population?
Probably be able to marry Moochelle.
Obama was going to be outed by his own people if he didn’t go on the record supporting it today. Blackmail, democrat style.
Did he think the queers WERE NOT going to vote for him?
Or was the largely-gay Mainstream media pressuring him??
Romney did not have to do anything. Goodrich unconstitutionally (MA Constitution) instructed the legislature to change the marriage laws, which they refused to do. Should have been the end of the issue, but Mitt sprang to the rescue!
As I stated above, no mass laws changed.
Prop 8 passed with support of 80% of blacks.
Odumbo knows they will still vote for him because, despite being 1/2 white he is still considered black.
Nothing will stop blacks from voting for Obama. NOTHING! In the end (no pun intended) I think this will hurt Obama more than help him. Did he miss the NC election results yesterday or something or is he just doing his ‘reverse parallel universe’ stuff again?
Barry comes out of the closet for NAMBLA. Surprise, surprise.
No, they made another mistake that helps Romney more than they thought. See my post upthread. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2881754/posts?page=47#47
How does one define incest wrt happy marriages?
He’s brain damaged and stupid. If he didn’t have a teleprompter with stuff written by other people he’d be drooling and talking baby talk.
Team Zero is desperate, this is clear evidence.
This is a great term, I needed a laugh!!!:
-—Ill bet Orally is also dumb enough to say Obama has switched sides. Hah.-—
You are correct!
Van Jones said something on TeeVee not along ago that blacks would vote for Zero even if Zero came out as “gay” or words to that effect.
Year, right...many would not!
You don’t. The dog is in play at this point.
At least the convict is not a mentally ill sex pervert (afawk).
Oh, then this is going to get interesting.
Now, I know Matt Drudge but who’s Matt Rhoades?
