Newsweek Cover: 'The First Gay President' (rainbow halo and all)
Politico ^ | 5/13/12

Posted on 05/13/2012 8:52:19 AM PDT by markomalley

"‘Let the games begin," Tina Brown said last week after Time Magazine released its controversial breastfeeding cover.

Brown, whose tenure as editor at Newsweek has seen an array of controversial covers, will respond with the above, pegged to Andrew Sullivan's piece on Obama's support for same-sex marriage: "The First Gay President."

The magazine is currently available on iTunes.

I know, I know, it's Politico.

Had one of us Photoshopped that cover, it would be considered "hate speech."

But I guess Newsweek decided to do the heavy lifting...

LOLOL!

There will now be “glory holes” in the Whitehouse mens rooms.
being told Obama is gay is like being told the sun is hot.

The progressives want to first molest the minds of children and then molest their bodies later.

People just don’t want to pay public welfare benefits for two lunatics sodding off all day.

Muslims would just kill homosexuals.

Taking into consideration broken clocks tell the correct time twice each day, maybe “spread the other cheek” is not a good public policy.

In your unabridged Oxford Dictionaries, the word “faggotry” denotes the bundling of steel to be hammered or rolled together.

Mammalian evolution is entirely heterosexual.

 Monogamy is not required for evolution, monogamy is a tenet of religion.

To prohibit polyandry and polygyny is an ecclesiastic rule of law.

To establish an ecclesiastic standard of monogamy for homosexuals is nothing but RELIGIOUS FAGGOTRY.

Democrats live in a fantasy world where fairies wave magic wands over their anus and babies materialize out of thin air.

All men are born of a woman.

If you have to tell grown men that babies will not come out of their rectums, there is no hope for any rational discourse...

If Bathhouse Barry doesn’t come out of the steam room voluntarily, the POTUS (Poofter of the United States) should be forced out involuntarily.

The magazine won’t come out until May, 21. They still have time to pull the cover, if it hurts their hero’s poll numbers.

Yeah, it’s still out there: you can pay $5.95 for a single issue, or $1 for the whole company.

DAMN, GUYS.

I *just this morning* predicted he'd come out of the closet, but I thought he might wait until after his term or terms were up!!!!

Looks like Newsweek is doing the leaking for him, but to my mind, this is Obama *directly* coming out as a ghey boi.

OMG, is that the real cover?

I saw this earlier, and thought it was a joke.

They actually are putting a rainbow homosexual themed halo over his head?

I can’t believe this is for real.

Geez Louise.................

Like this topic. It gave him millions from Hollyweird last week and drove his ratings down to 42%........and I’m no longer believeing any more than half of that 42% is really solid for him.

Seriesly! I see it once in a while on my neighbors stoop where the postman drops it - it looks like a small brochure and about as thick as a "Watchtower" or LDS phamphlet.

My prediction is that since Obama now knows that he's in for another "shellacking" akin to 2010, he'll come out and sacrifice himself on the alter of political correctness by proclaiming himself bi-sexual.

The courage!

Oh, and NewsWeak, James Buchanan, thwe 15th president was the first queer president of the United States - go read freaking history.

Oh lordy! Is this real? With a byline to the despicable Andrew Sullivan!

No, if we had done this is would have been considered, not hate speech, but a completely over-reaching parody.

This is it, between this and the “rambo mommy” cover and the Mitt Romney was a bad, bad, boy story the MSM is officially beyond parody.

Mark the day May 13, 2012.

"They actually are putting a rainbow homosexual themed halo over his head?"

Looks like he's graduated up from that old messiah's halo:

"Obama is our "Light-Worker" our "messiah"."

PICTURE

"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" - Barack Obama, Lebanon, New Hampshire. January 7, 2008

I know that the Newsweek toadies believe that this will “help” Obama in his poll ratings. Au contraire, I believe it will help soften his poll ratings and they will go down (again) this week.

Oooh boy. I never heard about those 3 guys before.

I wouldn’t think some gay choir people would be likely targets of gang bangers, beat them up, maybe, gun them down, not so much.

I wonder if the Washington Post ever looked into these things?

Could this story grow legs now that Obama is a “hero” to the gay community?

Suppose for one moment it was all true, and let’s also assume that the 3rd guy died of natural causes. If it were proven that Obama, or someone working in his behalf, had 2 gay black men murdered to shut them up, would anyone care? Would the black community care? Would the gay community care?
