    Obama needs to stop being so indecisive on this issue. You are either for gay marriage or against it but stop riding the fence.

    Since Obama believes America is One nation Under God. We know what side of the bed he lays on.

    He would of started the wheels from a turning by now if he was going to do anything, he just wanted the gay and bisexual vote thats all.

    With time running out for Obama it may well be many years until this thing some like to call "gay marriage" become on the ticket again.

    Oh thats the issue it's not been on the ticket with the Obama administration; they just wanted the gay vote and fooled you into giving it.....

    PS if gay marriage come to pass, Will one also have a gay mortgage. A gay car, gay health insurance too?

    Yes, he does need to stand up for gay marriage. Is he going to, no, at least not until he gets re-elected.

    The language might have changed in America about gay marriage, but the voting record hasn't changed in nearly every state where this has been an issue.

    If Obama takes this to the national platform, he's going to divide his democratic vote and lose. Is it right, no? But politics was never about doing the right thing.

    I have confidence that he's going to use his next 4 to try some really good stuff. My confidence is based on some sources but I guess we'll see how it pans out.

    This is mostly true. He's made some progress, but not nearly what the gays thought he would do.

    The old bit about things selling to the good folks of Peoria (ie typical middle-age to senior citizens of Midwest America) still holds true: the majority of Americans cannot be arsed to worry about any issue that does not affect them - or the other members of the 97% part of the citizenry that is exclusively heterosexual.

    That, and most of y'all will vote for Obama pretty much regardless of his stated views on marriage, so... who ya kidding anyway?

    Ugh Obama has been indecisive about a LOT. Oh let's not do this it may offend this type of people. Oh let's not do that. It may offend someone in another country. icon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gificon_rolleyes.gif And if he was for one nation under god it would be back in the Pledge and back in the schools and blah blah blah.

    But great video clip.

    Obama ain't gonna do nothin, because he know it will lose him the next election, because America is One Nation Under God; Obam's words.

    I can see him doing this IF he wins a 2nd term. But even democrats are split on this issue and some see marriage as more of a "religious tradition". Clearly, even the liberal states are having problems with the vote.

    Also, what few may not know is that Obama has given a number of "pro-gay support" speeches to the black community which is nearly 75% anti-gay anything. His own demographic is perhaps more resistent than the entire Republican party!

    Young, non-conservative people support gay marriage by a huge margin. But they're least likely to vote.

    The problem are the bitter and hateful social conservatives, christians, bigots and uneducated people (90% republican). Republicans put these anti-gay amendments on the ballot to max out turnout of these mostly republican "family values" morons.

    A majority of Americans support gay marriage, but it's the "47% who are assholes" that are most likely to vote on election day.

    theantijock saidCheney supports that the federal government ought to demand that gay people should be treated as 100% human beings? Not according to this...



    "...one of my daughters is gay, something (like a disease) we've lived with for a long time."

    This guy is still dirt.

    The guy's name is Dick;not because he has one, but rather because he is one.

    Obama supports gay marriage.
    He's just waiting for America to catch up with him.

    Aren't we all waiting for America to grow the fuck up and quit with the hate?

    Fail. Equality should not depend on popularity. America is not going to catch up just like that, it needs more of a fight.

    Thanks for your opinion.
    But, you're wrong to declare "Fail".
    We just have different opinions.

    If President Obama pushes gay marriage and the Repubs use it against him in the 2012 campaign - and it helps to elect a Repub in 2012 the same way it helped elect Bush in 2004 - gay rights will have to suffer through four more years of an anti-gay Repub prez and Repub obstruction of gay rights - and we won't have a Dem in the White House to prevent a Repub attempt to reinstate DADT.

    I'd rather have a Dem in the White House who supports gay rights, but sidesteps overtly pushing gay marriage - than a Repub in the White House who opposes gay rights and actively supports banning gay marriage.

    Yes - "equality should depend on popularity" - agreed.
    But GETTING ELECTED TO POWER DOES DEPEND ON POPULARITY.
    And having a pro-gay president in power is a hell of a lot better than having an anti-gay president in power.

    That's my opinion.
    You're free to disagree - but unlike you I'm not going to say that your opinion is a "Fail".
