Skip to comments.President Obama says Sasha and Malia influenced his stance on same-sex marriage

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.

0bama is an inept moron.
Yes, you are correct on both
Are you serious? You think that fruit cake looks like a mobster?
Imagine if a ruler went to his child after a criminal had been convicted of theft and said to his child "What shall we do with this criminal?" And the Child said "chop him into 3 pieces". Not only is that unfair to the criminal, but also to the child because it is sick to allow a child to pass arbitrary moral judgements of which they cannot possibly really grasp what they are doing.
Fortunately he draws the line at human to human marriage. Marrying a dog, for example, would be akin to marrying a potato.
Again he is shameless......using his kids because he does not want to stand on his own two feet...........
He had to change the subject to divert attention from the results of Tuesdays primaries. Simple as that.
” Marrying a dog, for example, would be akin to marrying a potato. “
Have you seen a picture of Michelle, lately???
"Sasha and Malia influenced my stance on same-sex marriage"
is the right thing to say
No, he just looks like a guy I used to know who hung out at the track. Slicked back hair and jacket with no tie.
If he doesn’t raise enough donations from this then that’s next.
I’ve been kinda’ waiting to change the rules so I can marry my beagle.
Did he hang around the men’s room there?
Just kidding. But that guy looks as queer and degenerate as he actually is.
Incredible isn’t it? Our president depends on advice from children. Unfit for office!
what a bunch of freaks. It's like I'm living in an alternate universe where being a homosexual, communist, lying , drug addict is looked upon as "good" and being a Christian parent that remains faithful and married is ostracized for being "racist and intolerant "
We are supposed to leave the Presidents kids alone, but the damned fool keeps bringing them in.
The Headline says his kids convinced him, but the story never explains the headline.
I have often suspected Obama of being bi-sexual, so his approving of gay marriage does not surprise me in the least.
Why didn’t he just call Amy Carter?
Little barry bastard commie is a liar. He lies even between breaths. I never -that’s NEVER— believe ANYTHING the lying little bastard commie says. NEVER.
