Whether it was a flip-flop, or an evolution, or a change of view, President Obama is the first sitting president to endorse same-sex marriage. Coincidentally, the same week the president announced this change, Cyndi Lauper, one of the biggest activists for gay and lesbian rights in the entertainment community was in town. Lauper came to D.C. to receive an award for her work to end LGBT -- lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender -- youth homelessness. Hearing the president's support for same-sex marriage, she said, felt extraordinary.
"I've never been so proud of a president before, I'm so proud to be American," Lauper said.

I’ve been wondering what Cyndi Lauper thought about politics.
Um . . . Who is Cyndi Lauper? I feel as if I once knew, but didn’t care enough to hang on to the knowledge.
One of her albums was called “She’s So Unusual”.I think that could be categorized as “understatement”.
Obama has used up political capital on a group that was going to vote for him no matter what, at the expense of the independent voters.
She had a song “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” in the 1980s that remains in consideration for the most annoying song ever recorded.
Hey Cindy...Shut up and sing.
The libs are truly single minded one issue short sighted people. If they only had the intelligence to match their enthusiasm...
I'd rather not hear her sing either.
Many people are wondering why the Obama is doing this and I have my own theory as to why. First off it is not Obama who is orchestrating this but it is the democrat party doing so. For the first time in history the demcorats have given America a black President. Lest we forget that the demcorats are the party of the KKK. My theory is that the democrats are seeking to regain control of the civil rights issue and to control it. What is not pointed out ever (by anyone) but is amazing when looked at within a historic perspective is that we are about to have the party of the KKK, who fought against civil rights, now redefine the meaning of civil rights in America.
They want to do it now while America has a black President for two reasons; a.) it gives them cover against their past history by letting them claim they are not racist because they elected a black man President, and b.) being that they lost the civil rights issue in relation to the rights of black Americans it is a symbolic victory for them to redefine ‘civil rights’ and regain control over the issue with a black man leading their party.
Why is it never discussed as to how this issue will redefine ‘civil rights’? Is precedent being set for a person’s sexual behavior to possibly be as important (or more important?) as their race or gender? If more forms of sexual behavior or sexual identification become recoginized as protected classes then how do all these different protected classes weigh against eachother? Is being homosexual more important then being black?
It amazes me that the party of the KKK is possibly near accomplishing the complete reconfiguration of the meaning of civil rights and no one even points out that fact.
Well 0bama made some freinds among the Degeneres and the Laupers. ;)
Cyndi Lauper thinks? That's a surprise to me.
LOL! Thank the Lord that we've got a state run "media" to keep us updated about what the celebrities are thinking.
I’m so proud that Cyndi is so proud to be a proud American. I wonder if she’s having fun yet.
Nah. "Oh Mickey" by Toni Basil (same era) has that particular title sewn up and nailed down.
She of rock ‘n wrestling.
Nope, "Bette Davis Eyes" takes that title, not even close.
