Actually, a person who never changes their mind is a danger.
Presiden Obama thought that a civil union approach was a solution. When it did not, he changed his mind for the legalization of same sex marriage.
As for the election, a person in favor of sane sex marriage would still consider Obama a better option that Romney - who had a proven dislike for gays as shown in his prep school assault.
Actually, a person with double standards is a danger.

Remember when Romney had a change of heart about abortion? He was chastised up and down by the left. Only Romney's change of heart didn't happen right before an election.

Funny how you can't see the difference.

DOH! Silly me should have known that you, from the Democrat Party devoid of principles would simply excuse Obama for doing the same as Bush. You guys campaigned over four years ago that Republicans should go because of what Obama is doing now.

Gee - DOH!

How silly of me not to predict you would be a hypocrite.

<quoted text> Exactly what are you talking about?Countless presidents were self proclaimed racist, owning slaves & all. Even signed the constitution that stated black people were only 1/3 human. Not to mention, there just happened to be recordings of Romney's 47% blunder, but no recording of Obama at any of the sermons of racial rhetoric. You people look for contrast, & when you can't find any, you make shit up!
Oh, for heaven's sakes. That was long before the Civil War. In case you haven't noticed, things have changed a bit. Many former slaves were voted into office in the Republican Party from the late 1800s until the Democrats won them over in the late 1930s. Then there was the Civil Rights Act.

And, of course, we won't even mention the number of blacks who have become CEOs, physicians, lawyers, professors, politicians and heads of state to name just a few since then.

Holding a grudge this long is unhealthy and doesn't ease racial tensions.

That was never the purpose though - easig racial tensions. Obama feeds off of it.

Whatever happened to the Benghazi terrorists?

Nothing, you say?

That's what I thought.

After 911, Bush kept us safe.

What about Obama?

Dead people and over 100 in the hospitals in Boston?

N. Korea, Iran.

Anyone feel safer now?

<quoted text>What deaths caused by Obama? Osama bin Laden? HE didn't start those incompetently run wars; he didn't arrogantly ignore warnings from the CIA and FBI. Wanta' guess what else the simple Shrub did? "Bipartisan Elites: Yes, the Bush Administration Totally Tortured
Brutal, illegal interrogation tactics are detailed in a new reckoning assembled by centrist, establishment types." (you can check the current "Atlantic" for complete details.)
I think we ought to try him in Texas. I don't even believe in capital punishment, but I could vote to fry him and Darth Cheney without batting an eye...good thing they already allow execution of the retarded in Texas.
Wow...you've done gone and buried yourself in the throes of denial.

Ever hear of the accelerated drone program? Or the "right war"? He's actually following in Bush's footsteps.

That can be good or bad depending on how you look at it.

A List Of Children Killed By Drone Strikes In Pakistan and Yemen
http://www.policymic.com/articles/24164/a-lis ...
Obama has authorized 193 drone strikes in Pakistan four times the amount authorized by George W. Bush. According to Global Research, over the past 4 years Obama has authorized attacks in Pakistan which have killed more than 800 innocent civilians and just 22 Al-Qaeda officers.
That constitutes at least 36 civilians per target.
The new level of animosity towards the United States under Obama's drone program pales in comparison to the Iraq War.

You're the one that inferred there was some type of black , by inferring that had a white presidential candidate done what Obama had done by going to a church where the pastor sometimes spoke with racist rhetoric. He would've been disqualifies. All I did was point out evidence to the contrary. I don't hold grudges. Who's to say the laws of nature doesn't? It's called karma!

The Senate votes on the gun control/background check measure today. Sen Wicker is seen as one who might break with Republicans and likewise for Senator Shelby. It was reported earlier that the letter to Wicker was postmarked Memphis.

<quoted text> They owned slaves doesn't mean they were racists. You cannot look at the past with todays eyes. You know the first slave owner in this country was black? Whites were slaves too. The 3/5 clause was so the south would not have a super majority in the House. Not that bullcrap brain capacity nonsense. You are better than that!
The institution of slavery began when we were still British beginning in the 1600s. It was a heated issue in southern states mostly after the signing of the Declaration of Indpendence and before the Emancipation Proclamation.

It took 87 years after we became an independent nation to end it but the important thing is that it ended.
