don't forget while your blowing obama to mumble that he personally killed Osama
I forgot about that one, such a fake and diminishes the award. You can read the previous winners and those since then look at the description and then look at Obamas.

"for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples".

What the heck does that mean? They just wanted to give him an award.

Goodness me - you gay bashers must be either crotchety old men with no life or love or the kind of school bully who calls every a fa**ot in the playground. Shame on you.

Maybe to put your O-Derangement Syndrome and Bigotry Sydrome into perspective, it might be interesting to compare an anti-Obama violent-spewing, ignorant nutcase with an addled brain that looks like a fried egg (Nugent) to an Obama supporter like Mr. Clooney who seems to have a brain and a successful career.

Yes, the difference is worlds apart, dontchabetchathinky winky!

I was always under the impression that marriage was a legally binding contract between a man and woman, often, but not always also sanctioned by a religious entity or institution. I do understand that for whatever reason, two members of the same sex choose to join together in a permanent relationship. Whether it is my age, upbringing or religious orientation, I cannot comfortably define this as marriage. I don't understand why such a relationship cannot be legally acknowledged as a domestic partnership, allowing for shared assets and other considerations that gays complain that they are denied. Of course, the down side of this should the relationship fail could also result in a legal minefield...dissolution of assets, claims and counterclaims concerning finances, possibly even alimony paid by the wealthier partner to the other. Sometimes we should be careful what we ask for.

If neither ask you to participate in a threesome, or for financial support for their adopted Child, what does is take from you?

Divorce in America is a blood sport. There's an entire industry dedicated to divorce and it's pretty lucrative. What's the impact on the kids from 50% of American marriages ending in divorce?

I don't back gay marriage, but I detest unequal access to Constitutional Rights. For that reason anyone in a free founded on the principle every citizens has access to happiness should be able to enjoy the rights of all citizens, not two levels of Citizenship.

It only serves that a President of a Free Democracy should back entirely basic Civil Rights for all citizens, his primary responsibility is to ensure Constitutional Protections for all citizens.

Only those in support of the looser of the 2008 Elections say he sucks, that's to be expected.

That's not the majority, but rather a loud,lying and scheming Mob. Other wise known as the Rabble.
