This whole issue is messed up.

Why are we putting all these SSM rights decisions to a public vote?

If women's right to vote was put on a ballot in 1928, would voters have enabled their suffrage?

If the civil rights movement had been put to a vote in the South, would the South have passed it?

No.

SO WHY ARE WE DOING THAT WITH THIS? IT'S INSANE. We shouldn't be voting on denying or not denying people's rights, because that's not how it's been done before.

Idiot Biden was sent out there to make a statement that quite frankly, Obama DID NOT HAVE THE BALLS TO SAY HIMSELF.


It's called COWARDICE.


Idiot Biden took the drubbing afterwards like a good puppy. NC Voted and BANNED Gay Marriage as a final Slap in Obama/Biden's face.

ANYTHING to keep America from focusing on all of the broken promises that define the Obama administration.

Next week Biden will run naked around the LIncoln Memorial and CNN/MSNBC will cover it for a full week.

Anything to aviod the REAL issues.

Actually, this is a 'real issue' to a lot of us. Don't worry, Romney will keep us on track of everything else.

Yeah, he does, but he won't say so, because he know a lot of dems that don't support it may not vote for him.

I'm not saying it isn't a REAL Issue. The Country needs the White House to focus on more than "social engineering".

Agreed. We are not just focused on that. Relax, all will be revealed. There's plenty of time.

Obama is using Biden to make it look like Obama is for gay marriage to get the gay vote. Chris Matthews even said yesterday that Obama can't come out and say he is for gay marriage because the blacks and Hispanics are against gay marriage. The Dems pretend to have a coalition of gays, blacks and Hispanics, except that the blacks and Hispanics hate one another and war with one another and both groups voted down gay marriage. Same time, the Dems are cutting and cutting their welfare folks to keep supporting their government employees. They have NO coalition. They're having to cut one group to feed another at this point and they have no united group of anything.

You mean when the time is right, like when Øbama whispered to Medvedev to tell Putin that Øbama willbe able to be more 'flexible' on missile defense after the election?

I mean when Obama doesn't have to worry about re-election.
Both Russia and the U.S. need to be more flexible. I'm glad Obama gave this assurance.

You and Øbama be as flexible as you want, together, when he's sent packing in January 2013. The only way the country will survive an Øbama second term is if there are veto-proof Republican majorities in the House and Senate.
