I would definitely vote for an Obama-Biden husband-husband team.

Heck, I would love to be married to Joe Biden myself.

A secret Obama/Biden love would certainly explain their "evolution" on the issue.

They were made to be together!

Obama just wants to marry a U.S. citizen so he can stay in the country.
 
2012-05-09 02:23:02 PM  
oooh...

I can't wait to watch some derpers' heads assplode.

Vice First Lady Biden...it has a nice ring to it.

LOLOL

He has this election in the bag. If he 'comes out' as pro-gay marriage he is gonna take a serious dive in the polls

Obama: *unzips pants*
Biden: That is a big f*ckin' deal.
 
2012-05-09 02:23:29 PM  
I just can't hate Biden. He just says what he thinks. He's lost that filter or parking brake that younger people have. He reminds me of my grandmother shouting "Will you look at that woman's ugly clothes" to me within earshot of the woman she was talking about.
 
2012-05-09 02:23:56 PM  
The people have spoken on whether gay marriage should be in America. Why does Obama hate state's rights?
 
2012-05-09 02:24:05 PM  
It's not flip-flopping when Obama does it.
 
2012-05-09 02:24:09 PM  
I really hope this non-issue doesn't torpedo Obama's campaign. Why the heck would gay folks anybody want to live in North Carolina anyways? Who cares what they do? Move to a good state where people have their priorities in order.

Wow. First liberal thing he has done all term.
 
2012-05-09 02:24:29 PM  
Why is this a newsflash? The administration has been pretty blatantly floating trial balloons for the last couple of weeks. If you *DIDN'T* know this was coming, you weren't paying attention.

Good for Mr President Obama.

2012-05-09 02:24:41 PM  
If he announces his support of SSM it will be one of the politically bravest things an up-for-reelection POTUS has ever done. It could really backfire with the religious blacks who voted for him in 2008.

I sound like Rick Romero.

I'd like to take a moment in this thread to express my love for NC.

We are not all hateful religious homophobic, bigotted zealots - most of us are rational, thinking human beings. Please do not let recent political events skew the good people of NC. We are just as embarrased about the aforementioned freakshows as the rest of the nation.

You are now returned to your thread, already in progress...
 
2012-05-09 02:24:51 PM  
hope he clarifies "evolving" by meaning that he was waiting to see if the US was becoming a little more compassionate and progressive toward human rights. Perhaps he's going to tip the scales a bit...
 
2012-05-09 02:24:57 PM  

Sin_City_Superhero: Obama just wants to marry a U.S. citizen so he can stay in the country.


Speaking as the liberalest liberal that ever liberaled...
That's funny right there.

Before people point out the missing period in the headline, I would like to clarify that when I submitted it, the headline was properly punctuated.

He's smarter than that. He must have information that this is good for him to do now. This administration is really excellent at timing.

Pictured here applying for a marriage license.

Oh and he is totally staying married to Michelle too. It'll be gay and polygamist. Suck on that, Romney.

I can. That doofus is proud of the fact that he voted for the 1994 "assault weapons" ban.

ModernPrimitive01: The people have spoken on whether gay marriage should be in America. Why does Obama hate state's rights?


Because putting equality up to popular vote is misguided.
States not not have a right to permit mob rule and oppress minorities.
We've been down this road before.

Saturday: honeymoon. IN KENYA!

I chuckled.
 
2012-05-09 02:26:34 PM  
Wow, he's finally decided to embrace equality for everyone, four years after he shied away from saying anything about Prop 8 during the 2008 election because it wasn't politically opportunistic. He's also finally making the rounds on colleges to get the young vote after he spent 4 years doing absolutely nothing to either help kids get to college, or afford it.

This is all just grandstanding for the upcoming election. Forgive me for not being impressed.
 
2012-05-09 02:26:38 PM  
I'd rather have vote for a crusty old, piece of shiat Republican that tells it like they think it is than vote back in a pandering asshole like Obama. His thoughts on gays are "evolving" , yeah, that's not a cop out. He can kiss the ass of the gays, then turn around to the bible thumpers and say "welllllllll, I'm not totally convinced, I can see their point of view, but I haven't really decided, so I'm still on your side"

Barack can do better. Unless Biden's packing a Spiro Agnew

Mitt Romney signed an assault weapons ban when he was governor.

The most restrictive in the country, as I recall.

ModernPrimitive01: The people have spoken on whether gay marriage should be in America. Why does Obama hate state's rights?



For it to be a states rights issue DOMA would have to be repealed. As long as it is on the books there is a federal law overriding states ability to grant marriage benefits.
 
2012-05-09 02:27:07 PM  
Oh boy. I really hope this doesn't backfire for him, although I bet it'll cost him at least NC and VA. Either way, good on him for doing this.

Well, you're certainly a master at reading polls. The people who will hate him for this already hate him, and they were coming out to vote against him already. This move is designed to recapture his momentum with the youth, a demographic he desperately needs. Disillusionment among young voters is something the GOP badly needs. It becomes harder to claim that Obama is the same old same old when he makes such a radical move (no president nor major presidential candidate has ever taken such a step.

How? The rabid right that oppose gay marriage won't vote for him anyway. Most Democrats support him, and this may be enough to sway the hardcore liberals to come back to the fold.

So that leaves Independents. And poll after poll show at best, indifference to the issue at best. All Obama has to say is, "I personally support gay marriage, but it is up to states at this time to decide the issue."

Some of you gun guys give me the willies, so that's not a convincing argument.

And before you yell at me, I actually do shoot, and had to get a FOID card when I lived in Chicago. I can only go so far with gun 'rights' before I think people start sounding like David Koresh.

Romney wants a federal constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Why does Romney hate state's rights?

Saturday, Obama enters into polygamist marriage with the family dog.

Apparently the "good people of NC" had something better to do yesterday than vote?

If that's true, why didn't you guys vote?
