Default Obama Supports Same-Sex Marriage

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/obam...legal-16312904

In case the video doesn't play for you, here are the two main quotes:

Quote:
"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Donít Ask Donít Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point Iíve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."
Quote:
ďItís interesting, some of this is also generational. You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same sex equality or, you know, believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and weíre talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldnít dawn on them that somehow their friendsí parents would be treated differently. It doesnít make sense to them and frankly, thatís the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.Ē

Actually it was probably because South Carolina just voted to ban it through their State constitution the day prior.

Either way, a step forward is a step forward. I think it's high time this country stops acting like neanderthals.

Thought it was North Carolina? A solidly Obama state in 08. They aught to love his stance on this.

Get Gov out of the marriage business and be done with it.

This.

Gas prices are dropping $0.05 per day. He's sided with same-sex marriage. The presidential election is in November of this year. Coinkydink? I think not.

Was it North? It was one of them. I was probably thinking "South" and then typed it.

And politics never make sense.

It was North Carolina and Biden . . . his hand basically was forced.

I'm not sure this will hurt him in NC . . . they put this issue up during the primary for a reason . . . they thought it would be a hotly contested GOP primary and they would all come out . . . well, it wasn't that, and almost no one came out . . . except people who feel really, really strongly about gay marriage . . . and most of the people who feel really, really strongly are either a) gay or b) fanatically opposed.
