If you hug your religion or your bigotry or you are a one-issue voter, these folks may not vote for President Obama but I believe the voters understand the "fairness and equality" issue - especially the young folks.
When asking my daughter if she thought this would hurt Presdident Obama's young supporter vote, she rolled her eyes and told me that the young generation is a smart one!
LOL! Obama will do ANYTHING to rev up the young voters like he did in 2008. hes having alot of trouble in that arena this go-around. many people below 30yrs arent voting for him this time because theyre getting out of college and are either unemployed or under employed. Now his stunt is give them breaks on their student loans. Hope this new "smart generation" is smart enough to see thru all this.

If a young American can't find a job or is underemployed, all they have to do is remember which party has been the "Party of No". Which party has purposely voted against them and all average Americans every chance they could in favor of corporations & the 1%. That's what this new "smart generation" will see. And you really think they will vote for Romney?? LOL

You are right texasmiss.

Obama could piss and shit all over the blacks in public and 95% of them will still vote for him because, although he's only 44% black,(50% white, 6% Arab) he looks like them and so is regarded as a 100% black brother.

The majority of latinos will vote for him too because they "really" do "believe" he's going to give them amnesty. Of course that's just an Obama con game to get latino votes. The sad part is they're ignorant enough to believe him. Amnesty will just never happen with the House being controlled by Republicans. That's very very unlikely to change come Nov. 6

It's not really even a partisan issue,unless you're one of those neocon moral majority members, most people regardless of political affiliation don't really care either way about gay marriage, especially when 50% of all traditional marriages are already in the crapper.

Jerry Falwell must be really pissed off when he regained consciousness and discovered his entire life was wasted spreading demagoguery and bigotry in the name of God. Reminds me of Newt Gingrich and his idea of the sanctity of marriage, that is, an open marriage. All those fundamentalist baptist act as if they might go gay at any moment unless they put up the greatest threat to their masculinity which of course to them are homosexuals.

I don't understand why homosexuals want to purchase tickets to a ship that has taken on water and is almost capsized, good luck with that endeavor.

Mutt Romnutz is for the rights of gay couples to adopt children.

His attitude and strong beliefs about this subject flip and flop depending on where he feels the wind on his wet finger.

Bush Jr. already pissed and shit all over the economy when he nearly doubled the national debt, plus the neoconservatives got us into a war with Iraq based on a bogus casus belli, and pretended there was a close connection between the 9/11 attacks and Iraq, so now your bitching about Obama?

By the way amnesty was provided for 1.7 illegal aliens by Ronald Reagan in 1986 and that was under a Republican controlled congress.

Bush was very lenient on illegal immigration, there was more illegal immigrants entering America under Bush Jr., Obama has so far had record high deportations. People like to pretend that conservatives are so much tougher on illegal immigration, but it's just more dung-filled neocon demagoguery.

Matter of fact the Department of Homeland Security recently said that under Obama deportations of illegal immigrants are double annually the numbers under Bush. What were you driveling about?

The way to pay Clooney and the stars that support the gay one in the white house is to stop seeing their movies.
