    Link: Pres. Obama Hates Gay People (Or Wants 2nd Term) - That or he just hates gay marriage. At a White House press briefing yesterday, Obama`s lackey shuts the issue down.

    Of course he hates gay people. What do you expect from a Muslim atheist Kenyan socialist communist dictator with a plan to enslave white people?

    James Brady is just the Press Secretary. The question given to him was unfair, as it is simply concerning the President`s personal opinion. Now, the President has recently gone on record to say that he is for same sex marriage. Did he say the contrary before? I wouldn`t doubt it.

    Regardless, the man is entitled to his opinions. As are each one of us. Can opinions change? Damn straight, I am now an atheist. But HAS his opinion changed? I would doubt he would tell you the truth of the matter, if he was against it.

    Unfortunately politics has become a popularity contest. Regardless of his views on gay marriage (or gays serving in the military as he did initially try to block it in a certain manner), I agree with a number of his policies. All of them? No. But I respect him for what he has done for this country.

    Fact of the matter: Welcome to American politics. Blame the electoral system and the media. Blame the parties in power, money runs it. Moderation is what wins.

    Nothing new here...moving along.

    @ ggolbez, First his name is Robert Gibbs. The reporter had a legitimate question that was dodged. Obama has recently said that he supports civil unions but is having difficulties with gay marriage which indeed means he`s backtracked on his views.
    A word of support for equality from the nations first black president would go a long way towards the inevitability that will be gay marriage.

    SlothofDoom-- It`s pronounced `murca.` Stop being a socialist/ nazi/ commie-loving/ cry-baby/ baby-killer/ killer of the American dream, and get on board.

    W/regards to Obama--I wonder if anyone really thought that Obama was ever actually opposed to gay marriage. When I heard him say he was opposed to gay marriage, what I heard through the screen of political discourse was "I`m for gay marriage, but I won`t push for it during my presidency." The context of his history, political leanings and experience would make one taking his statement during the campaign literally either indubitably gullible, or more likely simply dense. That`s why every time Carrie Prejean cited Obama`s opposition to gay marriage in interviews, the interviewers would either roll their eyes or stare disbelievingly.

    <sigh>

    I`m not going to say Obama is right or wrong, or that he backtracked or that he didn`t. It is, however, possible, that people`s opinions/beliefs changes with time. I used to be a Sunday School Teacher, now I`m an Agnostic. People change, so do their beliefs.

    @madest Yea, you got me. I just saw James Brady on the screen. I don`t follow/care about the speaker of the house enough to learn his name.

    On the other point you made, you completely lost what I said. He has the right to his opinion, whether you and I agree with it is uncontroversial. He has the right to believe what he wants to believe. Will he lie about it? Sure. But, if I am understanding you right, you want him to lie about it to support your opinion. I personally would rather him just tell us how he truly feels, rather than what people want him to feel.

    JUGGALETTEx0, if someone gets called a racist for simply not agreeing with a person, that is ridiculous. However, I don`t doubt that for some people, race is a factor.

    madest, I would obviously prefer that everyone voted for Obama. I`m just done with this whole "He didn`t keep his promises" thing. It`s just inaccurate to the point of being wilfully ignorant.

    People are just enraged that Obama didn`t wave his magical cxck and make everything late 90s again.

    But he did get us out of a recession, he is fixing things to the best of his abilities (which is getting harder what with the opposing congress)

    I would like to ask everyone this....what has Barack Obama done in office?

    The only thing I have seen him do that sets him apart from what any other president would do is Obamacare and personally I believe it is unconstitutional.

    If someone can honestly give me any evidence that Obama has actually done something I would be greatful....And I would also like to ask if anyone still believes that Obama deserved the Nobel prize now seeing all that he has done.

    He went on a lot of trips. I figure that the more time he spends away from Washington, the better off we are.

    Childrens Health Insurance Reauthorization Act.

    With no way to pay for it. Fail.

    Repeal restrictions on federal funding embryonic stem cell research.

    True. An ethics question for the ages.

    Christopher/Dana Reeve Paralysis Act.

    With no way to pay for it. Fail.

    Stimulus package $18 billion for nondefense scientific research.

    Costing on average 400k each to create and produce nothing. Fail.

    Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act.

    This one actualy seems to be working. Win.

    Executive order to close the prison at Guantanamo.

    2yrs later its still open. Fail.

    Ended CIA program of enhanced interrogation.

    Thats a tuff one. Do we baby this guy and let 1000 people die or kick his ass and save them. I am against torture but this has to be a hard piece of ground to stand on.

    Obama is for same-sex marriage and is essentially playing this game of non-commitment so as to appear as middle-of-the-road as possible. It`s all politics people.

    It would be great if the just flat out said he supported it, and if he would flat out be the "fierce advocate" of gay rights he said he was, but the fact is, this country is 50-50 when it comes to gay acceptance. Literally. Look at the polls, the gay marriage ballots, studies on what people think when it comes to homosexuality being acceptable. It`s basically split down the middle, with a SLIGHT edge to the pro-gay side. Until that edge become more than a small one, and until that edge is strong and not wavering support, he`s not going to risk going all out for gay rights. We see that conservatives essentially are doing anything and everything to eliminate any gay accepting thing in the US, and Obama would be right on their radar. It`s sad, but it`s the country we live in.
