Werl, I certainly think that The Obamaniac sank his chances of winning North Carolina's electoral votes. And the Presidential Election is ALL ABOUT winnning electoral votes.

Obama is disrespected enough these days that his caving into radical homosexual donors likely negatively effects efforts to disenfranchise Americans on the legal definition of marriage.

The NAACP’s move comes as attitudes about gays and lesbians in the African American community are changing rapidly. A recent poll found that 54% of African Americans supported President Obama’s recent decision.

More good news: "In each of North Carolina's five largest cities, voters in majority-black precincts rejected the measure: Charlotte (52 percent), Raleigh (51 percent), Greensboro (54 percent), Winston-Salem (55 percent), and Durham (65 percent). Durham's results were dramatic: NOT A SINGLE MAJORITY-BLACK PRECINCT SUPPORTED THE AMENDMENT. SEVERAL CRUSHED IT BY MARGINS OF 3-TO-1 AND EVEN 4-TO-1.
