President Obama says Sasha and Malia influenced his stance on same-sex marriage
CBS ^ | 5/9/2012 | Norah O'Donnell

Posted on 05/09/2012 5:34:19 PM PDT by tobyhill

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.

Earlier he said Jesus “influenced” this decision. I guess that story “evolved” too.

Apparently they have their dad's homosexual traits since gay marriage seems to be top priority to all of them.

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.

To follow up with what I said....

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.

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.

Republicans are so stupid. When asked about "gay marriage," they should all just state their belief that all marriages should be happy...blissful even.

Force the questioners to clarify that they really mean "homosexual marriage," then they can point out that it's an oxymoron.

YOU took the words right out of mouth!

I thought the very same thing of Obama and girls, who remain unchurched and have not a clue in sight that marriage was ever a commonly held to be a sacramental state, in the USA. Poor things are raised heathens.

What, a 9 year old in the 80's greatest concern coming to pop saying " Daddy, I'm comcerned about stopping nuclear proliferation". Deadpanned ever so sincerely by Carter in some dang debate. I remember. :)

That's almost certainly BS. His real advisers probably just think it will warm people over and explain away his sudden "change of heart" on the issue.

REV. WARREN: Okay. There’s a lot more I’d like to ask on that, but we got 15 other questions here.

Define marriage.

SEN. OBAMA: I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. (Applause.) Now, for me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. You know, God’s in the mix. (Applause.)

REV. WARREN: Would you support a constitutional amendment with that definition?

SEN. OBAMA: No, I would not.

REV. WARREN: Why not?

SEN. OBAMA: (Applause.) Because historically, we have not defined marriage in our Constitution. It’s been a matter of state law that has been our tradition. Now, I mean, let’s break it down. The reason that people think there needs to be a constitutional amendment, some people believe, is because of the concern about same-sex marriage. I am not somebody who promotes same-sex marriage, but I do believe in civil unions. I do believe that we should not — that for gay partners to want to visit each other in a hospital, for the state to say, you know what, that’s all right, I don’t think in any way inhibits my core beliefs about what marriage are.

I think my faith is strong enough and my marriage is strong enough that I can afford those civil rights to others, even if I have a different perspective or a different view. (Applause.)

I believe this means that Obama has made arrangements to marry his daughters to some geriatric Muslim sheik in Saudi Arabia for a major score of bling. The money will go into his secret offshore account in the Caymans. Paging Reggie Love. POTUS needs a bag man.

It's not BS. Obama is pandering to the “youth” vote by using the advise of his daughters. Even Obama admits to as much.

Obama is going to lose on the issue, just like the vote in NC.
