Obama on gay marriage: 'Right thing to do'

May 14, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WTOP-FM Washington

President Barack Obama on Monday defended his view that gay couples should have the right to marry, saying that the country has never gone wrong when it "expanded rights and responsibilities to everybody." "That doesn't weaken families.

When I was a boy America was a great country, People worked hard for what they had, They grew their own food and they canned their own food, they had family dinners together, They watched 3-4 hours of television and went to bed, Got up early and went to work once again, There wasn’t any class envy, or liberals indoctrinating our children, If you went to a college you received the education that you paid for, Instead of receiving an indoctrination. The leftist have infiltrated our schools and our government.
They teach class warfare and liberal coward policy.
Children are now taught that there is no need to work hard, They are indoctrinated into believing liberal government policy is the fix to all problems, They are told that they cant think for themselves, it reminds me of the Hitler youth program. Union radicals have now made our children American terrorists. Little Bill Ayres programmed to be OWS protestors. They are indoctrinated by radical union school teachers and professors that Business is bad in our country. They are radically taught that Rich people are bad people, and that they can never be rich. They are taught that socialism is good, and capitalism is bad.
Its time that every parent in this country reaches down and pulls themselves up by their , Bootstraps and Go down to the local schools and personally speak with these radical liberal union democrat teachers.
We must as a people “Wake Up” to the leftist agenda in this country!
The left is pushing for a “GOD LESS”“Moral less” Country.
If this isn’t what you stand for , You must speak out. If you still have Christian values in your household, its now time you have an awakening in your family. Our country is still Center right, Marriage is still just between one man and one woman. We are still a Capitalist country.
Its time that the Silent majority register to vote and get ready to speak loudly. Our country is in trouble and its time for a major awakening, Liberals intend to take your weapons, take your religious freedoms, and slowly remove your Constitutional rights one by one. Remember Hitler took everyone's weapons and gave them all free radios and then took over the radio stations. If you do not learn from history you are doomed to repeat it. I suggest all American citizens read books and study history. I suggest you all make it your job to wake up your neighbors. I suggest you take Obama at his own words. I suggest you listen and watch what is going on in your country and your local community.
Leftists are trying to get you to remove your flag poles and your crosses. Liberals will kill the unborn and not think twice about doing so. But do not ever water board a terrorist. These modern day American terrorists will steal your children and kill your family, They are already flying drones over your home, your private property. They have no respect for your right to privacy. They tell you that you can note smoke, and they want to tell you what kind of vehicle that you can own. They strive for $8.00 a gallon gasoline, They have drove up the price of food, and the cost of your utilities, This Obama and his indoctrinated followers will destroy your life and destroy our country, and now they seek absolutely more intervention.
And the liberal media still wont report on the young Obama's drug use history.
His father was a Marxist and a woman abuser, But the liberal press covers it up. The German press also suppressed Adolf Hitlers back ground.
Sound familiar? Now the Obama admin is coming up with a strategy to be able to use the race card and the gay card and induce more voter fraud in order to wax over the people. You had better all wake up soon, Before this country is completely lost.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!

Romney has made this pledge:

Support sending a federal marriage amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the states for ratification.

Nominate to the U.S. Supreme Court and federal bench judges who are committed to restraint and to applying the original meaning of the Constitution, appoint an attorney general similarly committed, and thus reject the idea our Founding Fathers inserted a right to gay marriage into our Constitution

Defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act vigorously in court.

Establish a presidential commission on religious liberty to investigate and document reports of Americans who have been harassed or threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if needed.

Advance legislation to return to the people of the District of Columbia their right to vote on marriage.

Marriage is a lifelong commitment between consenting adults. I am not gay and I don't understand why anyone would be gay. It really doesn't matter though. I've seen gay people fight like husband and wife because one of them thought that the other was looking too much. I've seen gay people loose their significant other and they morn just as any straight person who has lost their life partner. It's sad that we live in a country that focuses on crap that doesn't matter to the lives of their citizens. We are involved in wars in places that war will not change. We are in a serious financial crisis that we refuse to acknowledge by raising tax and cutting costs. We have businesses hiring people that they cannot legally hire depressing wages for the legal workers and leaving a large percentage of native citizens without work altogether. Forget these issues that serve to sidetrack us and divide us. Let women choose. Don't like abortion? Don't get one! Don't agree with gay marriage? Have a miserable one! If it doesn't apply to you, stay the fk out of it! You have no business tossing your two cents in, especially if you are against it. It's none of your business if two girls want to tie the knot. They didn't want you and you ain't getting none even if you outlaw their lifestyle. Government should stay out of the bedroom and Romney needs to tell everyone in the United State why he knocked up a sixteen year old girl when he was dodging the draft.

I hope that makes someone happy, and I hope it pisses someone off.

I am a legally married gay man and an Honorably Discharged United States Veteran.
Despite having been a life long democrat, I did not vote for Obama in 2008 and had no intention of voting for him in 2012.
I think he made a mess of health care reform, Afghanistan is a slow motion disaster and his economic policies (as best as they can be discerned) have provided questionable benefit...but he has finally done the right thing when it comes to gay and lesbian equality.
It took courage, it took leadership and it took a great degree of humility to step up and say "I was wrong" on an issue as controversial as this.
Courage, leadership and humility, three qualities I had never associated with Obama the politician.
Until now.
In 2010, 31% of voters who self-identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual voted republican.
The divide between the democratic party under Obama's leadership and the gay and lesbian community has been larger than anyone understood and it was getting worse.
4% of all voters in the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections identified themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual. A large and increasing number of those voters have been voting republican in each consecutive election.
There may still be policy differences and it may take some time to repair the damaged relationships.
Trust won't come easy, but speaking for myself the war is over and for the first time since 2007...I'm listening.
I agree with you completely.I did vote for him in 2008,I guess because of all this hype around him.But in my eyes he is a weak president and divider.Have no demonstrated courage,leadership and his politics go nowhere..Was not able to carry out immigration reform(easy humanitarian issues)and now he talks about gay marriage.Who is he fooling? Why is he doing this? All his empty promisses and lack of decison and action just devide country and make citizens angry.USA deserves and can do better.

Marriage standards are everyone's business; marriage is a public act. Local government has been regulating marriage standards, registering marriages and licensing marriage since we've had government. Now you want to change those standards.

Same sex marriage says gender is insignificant; we know gender is significant, most gays understand that too. Same sex marriage would harm gays because of new rules requiring gender neutrality in venues where gay's have a gender preference.

What? Your writing style is nearly illegible. Next time try to have a well thought out message and deliver it in coherent sentences so y your target audience will understand what you are trying to say.

You lost me with saying that "marriage is a public act". I don't feel that you or I have a right to tell two people that they can or cannot get married.
That's simply a control issue [on your behalf] that effects you in no way.
That's right! The government issues marriage licenses every minute of every workday knowing that over half will end in divorce. It's not like we get to flog heterosexual divorcees in public. That would be fun though. I would pay to see that. lol

Actually, SSM says gender is very important.

having SSM won't affect you in any way. it won't harm anyone or anything in the US.
those marriage standards you mentioned neve always changed. no one died...lighten up.
