Possibly true; but then we'd still have President Hillary right now.

Either one of them is better than a President McCain or President Romney.

Thankfully Hillary will be elected in 2016 (and again in 2020).

I have no dog in this fight but I think it is nobody's business who marries who--not mine, not yours and certainly not the government's. If you want to impose your medieval mythology on the populace you are living in the wrong country. May I suggest Iran, Saudi Arabia or the Taliban controlled areas of Afghanistan.

Yes, there is no need for either the state or federal government to decide this issue. The fact that it is even taken up is unconstitutional. There is no reasonable or legal basis for banning same-sex marriage. Ignorance, religious or other bigotry, are no justification for denying certain people the right to seek happiness.
I keep trying to point out a part of the U.S. Constitution to everyone who claims "States Rights" are involved here.

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

"Notwithstanding any thing to the contrary" means that the clause following it shall supersede and prevail over any thing contrary to this clause. Any thing that contradicts or withstands this clause shall be ineffective and inoperative qua this clause.

I suggest if you want to marry your gerbil you should have that right, and if someone wants to come into your house and debauch your women they should have that right to........after all that's medieval.

Sometimes presidential vacations are a good thing. President Bush should have taken eight years of them.

Get the flick off your platform.
Let the Judicial procss take it course. Just shut the flip up. Tyrant.
Former George W. Bush aide and GOP operative Ken Mehlman has convinced more than 100 prominent Republicans to sign a brief urging the Supreme Court to overturn California’s ban on gay marriage.

Amicus curiae briefs are necessary to ensure America continues to be a Free Nation because ANY citizen or group can petition the Court urging a specific decision that best serves their interest.

The President is a citizen. Are you opposed to citizen free expression in this democracy?

Or is it simply you don't know much about judicial protocol and procedures under the Government and laws which you reside?

If Obama were truley black, this would never come up. Blacks and Hispanics defeated same sex marriage in California. Then out came the marxist judges.
