Damn, I'm impressed! Shouldn't the "president" be doing more important things like studying the economy and coming up a reasonable, intelligent plan?

It looks to me as if he's tried to implement a plan but the obstructionist Republicans in the House of Reps have blocked almost all of it. They apparently don't care that they are taking the American electorate down as long as it gets Obama too.

and, isn't political equality for all Americans an Ideal of the American Dream? Why shouldn't he spend a little time on that?
Is he for real

Yes the Republicans will be obstructionists to any of the marxist obamanation's policies whenever the policies are clearly subversive, anti-American, lawless, overreaching, trampling on the Constitution, power grabs, hispandering for votes, etc, any and all of the above.

The liberals only care about human body parts and what interesting things you can do with them.

The thing is with the Baptist extremists, they now backing Obama for his stance on Gay Right. Totally going against God's will. I have moved myself away from the US because there is something gonna happen in America especially states where Obama supports are strong..:)

You do realize that huge numbers of heterosexuals engage in sodomy, don't you? It seems you are operating on a very limited information base.

Marxist?? LoL!

I could call the christianist right wing of the Republican party fascists then, no? I mean, they have to be that far right to make Mr Obama look like a marxist. He's actually what used to be called "center/right" but I guess you are too young to remember the days when there were rational and moderate people in the Republican party.

There is literally nothing right with this president and to think that this man may have a chance at re-election just goes to show how much our country has morally decayed over the decades, gay or straight. Thank you.

You're entitled to your opinion, as am I. I just think that equality under the law for all Americans is a worthwhile pursuit and that the President should be commended for engaging in that pursuit.

Young voters strongly approve of the President's endorsement of gay marriage.

"...firing up his young, liberal backers."

Libertarians are right behind the cons--------- The editors of The Freeman have included Henry Hazlitt, John Chamberlain, Suzanne La Follette, Paul L. Poirot, Brian Summers, Charles Hamilton, and John Robbins. Henry Hazlitt, an economist and journalist, had been one of FEE's founders and his articles continued to appear regularly in The Freeman after its take-over by FEE. John Chamberlain became FEE's regular book reviewer and his reviews appeared in The Freeman until his death in 1995. Leonard Read, FEE's President, was also a regular contributor, as was FEE's economic adviser, the noted Austrian School economist, Ludwig von Mises. Other contributors in the 1950s included: Barbara Branden, James Burnham, Frank Chodorov, John Dos Passos, Max Eastman, John T. Flynn, F. A. Hayek, Frank Meyer, Raymond Moley, Roscoe Pound, Wilhelm Röpke, Murray Rothbard, Morrie Ryskind and George Sokolsky.[3]

The Freeman is widely considered to be an important forerunner to the conservative publication National Review magazine, which was founded in 1955, and which from its inception included many of the same contributing editors.[4]

FEE's Freeman is published monthly. During its more than half century of life it has published articles by economists, businessmen, professors, teachers, statesmen (domestic and foreign), students, housewives, free-lance writers, and budding libertarians. Many of its authors have gone on to become noted authors, teachers, and founders of other libertarian organizations. It continues to discuss current economic and governmental issues from the same pro-private property, free market, limited government, libertarian philosophy which sparked the founding of FEE and all its publications. Ronald Reagan was photographed reading The Freeman on an airplane when he was running for the Republican Party's presidential nomination.

Can't out do those Freeman they even blog about themseleves. Never trust a Libertarian! The Freeman Perspective
I am referring to Satanic Ritual Abuse..... Explore hundreds of photos of the elite
in politics, banking, religion, and entertainment, as Texe and Freeman illustrate ...

Is this what "equal" citizens do when allowed to enter one of the most hallowed structures of freedom in the world?

Exactly, this is of no suprise what this President is doing with respect to garnering more votes in desperation. I haven't been happy with either party since proir to Gulf War II. It never seems to end either way. I support the abolishment and restructuring of the tax code and for the federal reserve to be audited asap. Until Mitt Romney can convince me otherwise I will vote for Ron Paul.
