Barack Obama isnt exactly famous for his loyalty; he has a history of jettisoning people once theyve outlived their usefulness to him. This time, its the gay community.
On Friday, Obama told an MTV audience that he would not fight for gay marriage his second term, intoning that it would be up to future generations of Americans to implement meaningful reform.
Heres the kicker; realizing that some states are now endorsing gay marriage, Obama suddenly became a champion of states rights, asserting, For us to try to legislate federally into this area is probably the wrong way to go.
When the states endorse Obamas positions, hes a states rights guy. When they dont, he runs roughshod over them with the federal government.
Obama continued on Friday:
First of all, I've been very clear about my belief that same-sex couples have to be treated before the eyes of the law the same way as heterosexual couples. I think that's the right thing to do. It's based on my personal experience, seeing loving couples who are committed to each other, raising kids and are just outstanding people. And I was supportive of civil unions, but they taught me, if you're using different words, if you're somehow singling them out, they don't feel true equality.

ok, 10th also applies to the nullification of Obamacare, good to know O is on board..
Sure, he no longer needs the homosexual votes.
“ok, 10th also applies to the nullification of Obamacare, good to know O is on board..”
He’s only for it when it serves his purposes.
He is not going to waste his political capital on 2% of the population.. he has bigger fish to fry..
When will the Useful Idiots learn they only stay useful for first terms?
The fools got used by the usurper. Once he got their money and vote, he’s done with them. Serves them right for believing that he cares. He only cares about himself and his cronies, and money.
God help us - this country is in serious trouble.
BS. Don’t be baited
har har dee har har
Must have made a deal with some black preachers.
See ya, homosexuals.
“When will the Useful Idiots learn they only stay useful for first terms?”
They didn’t seem to care when an openly gay ambassador was raped and killed.
My crystal ball says that he will become very interested again somewhere in 2014.
I betcha Romeny would of.
He’s a leftist. If it’s bad for the country then of course he’ll be for it.
Singling who out? Civil Unions were for Queers and for Men and Women who chose not to marry, but lived as husband and wife. Therefore they had ALL the benefits as married couples.
My state of WA had Civil Unions, but that was not good enough for the Queers. Now I wonder what will happen to the Civil Union privileges for those who choose not to marry. Will they still receive ALL the privileges that marrieds do?
My guess is that he comes out of the closet short after be leaves office.
