Big news! Today President Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage, reversing his longstanding opposition, becoming the first standing U.S. President to take that position.
In an interview on ABC news airing tonight, the President said:
“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 Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve 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.”
Obama likes to think about same-sex couples. Nice.
The president’s position became a hot topic this week, when Vice President Joe Biden said he himself was “absolutely comfortable” with allowing same-sex couples to wed, and that there’s nothing wrong with that.
We all thought it was just another Joe Biden mis-speak, when it turned out to be a calculated move by the administration to test the waters on this hotly debated issue.
This is why it’s important to hound politicians about your wants, because otherwise they don’t act.
Is Maggie Ghalalger happy about the news assuming she get more funding in her hate filled war on Equality or is she fetching a new pair of undergarments to hold the massive crap she just took in her stretchy pants?
Don’t get too excited, Obama also stated that he still believes that this is his personal position, and still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own. Will this part of the Democratic plank come convention time? We think so. Soon you can make a honest man or woman out of your fuck buddy.
We think he’d be better off by reminding voters that it would save the government a big headach, time and money if they just treated everyone the same.
