Fair and balanced video coverage…
At the Saddleback Civil Forum, Barack Obama addressed his definition of marriage.
While he said he believes that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, he also said that he would not support a Constitutional definition of marriage as so.
His argument is that marriage has not been defined by the federal government, traditionally. He said that it is up to the states to decide
Via The Huffington Post: “An unexpected surge in support to place same-sex marriage on the Democratic Party platform at the August convention has energized LGBT advocates and complicated an already delicate situation facing President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign…”.* Should president Obama put gay marriage on the platform?
Should Obama Push Gay Marriage In 2012?
WASHINGTON — In a nod to a dramatic shift in public opinion, Barack Obama on Wednesday became the first sitting president to announce his support for same-sex marriage.
So you get how it goes. MSM was slobbering all over themselves and not a word on his flip-flopping in an election year. WAKE UP Liberals. Get a clue Democrats! It is all because of North Carolina passing the same-sex marriage ban. He all of a sudden no longer has his Christian views on marriage JUST one day after N.C. says NO! So he’s blatantly using the Gay Community. What I can’t figure out is why would he think he’d get more of the gay vote and that surpassing the religious right he has sorely offended by this? Oh, thats right I forget, he will be fixing this election & helping illegal aliens vote. ~ JP

Values: The president’s coming out in favor of gay marriage shows he’s to the left of most black Americans — and willing to throw his most loyal backers under the gay pride float.
Under pressure to assuage the gay lobby and young voters ahead of November, Obama on Wednesday told ABC News “it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”
By finally taking the controversial stance, which won’t go over well in the black community, he’s clearly counting on African-American voters remaining loyal to him this election out of racial pride and a habit of voting Democrat.
But he may have miscalculated.
Gay marriage is highly unpopular among black voters — and he’ll need every one of them to beat presumptive GOP foe Mitt Romney.
Then again he has a long list of Flip Flops
