THANK YOU MR PRESIDENT!!!!!!

Of course this may cost him Virginia & North Carolina in November, but it's nice to have a President willing to stand on principle even at the risk of their political future.

Now if only we could find some Republicans with the same courage.

I wonder what the great Flip Flopping Romeny will have to say about it. Remember Romney, the guy who said he would "be to the left of Ted Kennedy" on gay rights, and is now to the right of Dick Cheney!

It seems to me that instead of announcing "full support" for gay marriage, why not just full support for minority rights?

He has proven once again that he is completely against the American people. The people have voted on every opportunity they have been given to make marriage one man and one woman. If ObamMer really cared about doing the job of President, he would make the decisions the American people want him to make.

Obama 'Devastating' For Civil Liberties


NPR
October 10, 2011

Jonathan Turley argues in a recent op-ed in the Los Angeles Times that "the election of Barack Obama may stand as one of the single most devastating events in our history for civil liberties." He says President Obama has continued many of the most controversial Bush administration programs.

JOHN DONVAN, host: And now, the Opinion Page. After eight years under President Bush, many civil libertarians were thrilled when Barack Obama won the 2008 election. What a difference a few years make. Law Professor Jonathan Turley argues in a recent op-ed that, quote, "the election of Barack Obama may stand as one of the single most devastating events in our history for civil liberties." Now, if you supported President Obama in the last election, we want to know: How important is this issue of civil liberties to you? Will it make or break your support for the president going forward? Give us a call: 800-989-8255. And our email address is talk@npr.org. And you can also join the conversation at our website and find a link to the Turley op-ed. Go to npr.org and click on TALK OF THE NATION.

So Jonathan Turley, he's a law professor at George Washington University. His piece, "Obama: A Disaster for Civil Liberties," ran last month in the Los Angeles Times, and he joins us now in Studio 3A. So you say of President Obama that his election may be one of the single most devastating events in our history for civil liberties? That is very, very strong language, Jonathan.

JONATHAN TURLEY: It is a strong language, but I think civil libertarians are coming to grips with what is really a building disaster for our movement, and it's been a rather difficult process. You know, I have a large civil liberties blog, and there's a lot of soul-searching among civil libertarians about what exactly happened. But we are engaging in a sense of collective denial when we deal with President Obama.

Obama's Campaign said in a story that what they hear most from Big Money Donors are these 2 issues:


1) Gay Marriage
2) Blocking Keystone Pipeline




So what you see is nothing more than Obama being Bought and doing the bidding of his financiers.



What FILTH!

Well, since there are more people in the United States who favor same-sex marriage than who oppose it, it appears that he has indeed. So you have nothing to complain about.

I support black people having the right to marry.
I support interracial people having the right to marry.
And I support gay people having the right to marry as well.

God Bless America!

By Elizabeth Hartfield | ABC News Ė 1 hr 5 mins agoEmailShare4Print
Barack Obama was not the only Democrat on the ballot on Tuesday in West Virginia's Democratic Presidential Primary. Keith Judd - also known as Inmate No. 11593-051 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas - was running against him.

Judd, who is serving out a 17.5 year sentence for extortion, currently has received 40 percent of the vote, with 83 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press. Obama currently has received 60 percent of the vote.

Obama's lack of popularity in West Virginia has been well-documented. The state's governor Earl Ray Tomblin and it's junior senator Joe Manchin, both Democrats, have kept their distance from the president.

A further potential embarrassment for the Democrats, as The Charleston Gazette reports, Judd only needs 15 percent of the vote - which, indeed, it looks like he has accomplished - in order to be entitled to have at least one delegate represent him at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. this summer.

Judd would not be the first Democratic challenger to Obama to qualify for delegate representation at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. In Oklahoma's Democratic primary in March, Randall Terry, a Democratic candidate who founded the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue and has more than 50 arrests under his belt, received 18 percent of the vote in the primary, giving him one delegate.

Good to see Mr. Obama come out and do the right thing, here. More and more Americans support equal rights for gay people, and now our President does, too.

Now, when will Mittens take the same position? Or will he cater to the bigots and homophobes on the right wing of his party, who he's trying desperately to court? Or will he flip and flop back and forth like a fish on the beach, as usual?

STAY TUNED!:)

In about 6 months, Obama will go back to being a nobody.
