    Vv DOMA is a law at the federal level, but not part of the Constitution. Therefore In point of fact, he did *not* swear to uphold DOMA.

    This video does re-write his past handling of LGBT issues a bit, at least in the sense that it makes him seem more enthusiastic about them than I think he`s actually been. Regardless, the fact remains that he has done the most for that community than any other president. Some of that is just the way our culture is changing, but I`ll give him credit too.

    I watched this earlier in the day. Obama has done so much for the gay community. I am so proud of our President - I just love the man. He has a well deserved lock on the gay vote.

    Washington State votes by mail so I will be in DC with my buddy the week of the election.

    Republicans need to leave the social issues to the state (which is how they want everything else handled) and stop making bigotry a platform issue. Then intelligent free thinking people can make decisions based off policy ideals that are important to our country. We can decide which party has the best ideas and plans. But this stuff just reminds us that the republican party is the party or racists, bigots, hillbillies, and religious zealots. I have no interest in being part of that. This is such a non-issue. A person having equality in America in 2012 shouldn`t even be a topic of conversation.

    And this, Markust my friend, is why Obama says these things. He`s playing folks like you. The president of the United States can`t really do much more for the gay community than Obama has already done - that is up to congress and the state legislatures, yet Obama continues to harp on issues such as these instead of addressing the more important issues he should address.

    Frankly, I don`t particularly care whether Obama is doing this out of the goodness of his own heart. He`s a politician and I expect politicians to do shrewd things. He didn`t have to come out in favor of gay marriage; the gay community would have voted for him anyway, since they wouldn`t vote for Romney.

    Lincoln freed the slaves for reasons more calculated than just morality, but the end result was moral.

    "Lincoln freed the slaves for reasons more calculated than just morality, but the end result was moral. "

    That`s highly debatable. Lincoln was by far the worst president this nation has ever seen. Some of the things he did compromised a lot of what this country stood for and quite possibly ended up making things worse for African-American minorities than it would have been had slavery been killed off more peacefully. Hell, Lincoln was a racist himself.

    I think this blog article sums up nicely what the Obama campaign is trying to accomplish with all this media hoo-ra.

    Oh, and Fools. Let`s not forget about all the things that Obama has yet to do. Sure, what he`s done (not said) for the gay community so far has been great, but how come he`s still ranting about it when he has no more power to change it left? Shouldn`t he be addressing some of the issues he`s failed to tackle so far?

    There are far more important issues than this one in the country and the world--and Obama is on the wrong side of all of them. This is because he is, philosophically, a statist and collectivist. His collectivism also drives his basic racist perspective. Look into his past, and please have a sense of perspective.

    a) Thrown around 800 people in jail without trial due to opposition to a war.
    b) Waged an illegal war against his or her own people
    c) Publicly expressed extremely racist beliefs against not only blacks but Native Americans as well
    d) the list goes on and on and on...

    "There are far more important issues than this one in the country and the world"

    Thank you. Though, I don`t completely agree with the rest of your statement. This sums up most of my feelings. Human rights and equality are important, but they aren`t an issue Obama can really do anything about in his position as president. He needs to be focusing on more pressing, and the reason he ignores them is because there is no simple solution, he would actually have to do some work. It`s easy to resolve the gay rights issue - accept homosexuals as equals and allow gay marriage. However, it`s not so simple to deal with the other mess our country is in.

    Perhaps you misunderstand me. I`m not saying all republicans are racists, bigots, hillbillies, and religious zealots. I`m simply saying almost all racists, bigots, hillbillies, and religious zealots are republicans. Come on. Certainly you can`t argue that. If you go ask a KKK member or someone holding a god hates fags sign what party they affiliate with we both know what the answer is going to be.

    I`m aware of the racist quotes attributed to Lincoln. I`m also aware that he was opposed to slavery before he was president. The fact is, most of our presidents could be considered racists. Andrew Jackson pretty much waged a holocaust against Native Americans.

    Morality evolves in a society. It`s hard to judge someone`s feelings on race from a modern context. My grandfather made statements that would be considered racist to a lot of people today, but he was also one of the few people in his community to welcome the first black family to move in. Actions are what matter.

    Again, my point was that Lincoln may not have approached the issue of slavery from what we today consider to be the correct perspective, but the result was moral for the people who were freed all the same.

    I`m not going to get into your other qualms with Lincoln.

    @HolyGod Oh, okay I`ll agree with that. Keep in mind that there are equally crazy folk on the other side though. (ex. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson) That`s the way partisan politics work, and that`s why I`m not a fan of our dual-partied political system. (Which is why I give markust a hard time for claiming to be `against partisan politics`.) I usually fall on the liberal side when it comes to social issues like gay rights, but there are some certain economic and structural issues that I tend to agree with republican politicians on.

    @FoolsPrussia He didn`t pull the emancipation proclamation until 2 years into the civil war, and even when he did it only freed the slaves in the south (not the north). Also, let`s not forget that he instigated THE CIVIL WAR (look very closely at the politics around it, including some of the big industries at that time, which Lincoln was in cahoots with). The Civil War was brutal and inexcusable.

    @FoolsPrussia In fact, MANY northerners at the time didn`t respect Lincoln even at the end of the civil war. When he was assassinated, some northerners were even happy. Lincoln was a tyrant, there`s no getting around it. Sure, it could be argued that his lunacy ended up doing some good, but that argument still goes both ways. It`s history and there is really no way of knowing what would have happened if the civil war would have been averted and the south allowed to secede. I would like to think that a lot of the hate, bigotry, and ignorance that plagues the south wouldn`t still be around had the war never happened. (A lot of the poor farmers were starting to detest slavery in the south, themselves, and 3 confederate states were on the way to discussing its abolition before the war broke out.)

    @HolyGod For the most part, yes. I think that there are some things that both the federal government AND state governments should be spending on though, such as public education. I don`t really like to say that I agree with any party though because I wish there weren`t any. Both the republican and democratic parties do a lot of damage at the state level here in the south.

    I know the republicans campaign on smaller government and fiscal responsibility, but they don`t necessarily run the country that way when they are in power. Reagan, Bush, and Bush all increased the size of the government and added a majority of the current national debt. The only president in the last 30 years was Clinton.

    I think education is really important. Would you support cutting the defense budget by 30% to properly fund education?

    @HolyGod Of course, keep in mind I always use the term `mostly` for everything. I *mostly* agree with republican politicians on economic issues. I think that sometimes it is necessary to increase the power of the government with regards to certain issues when it has gotten too small to fulfill it`s purpose, but I think that it is mostly a good idea to keep it smaller. I definitely would like to see the US take an isolationist approach to foreign issues for a little while though. We spend way too much money on military. (I don`t agree with it to the degree that Ron Paul does though. I think there are certain areas that the US can`t afford to completely pull out of at this point in time.)

    Fair enough. I just find it staggering that the defense budget was over 700 billion dollars in OFFICIAL spending. We could cut that in half and still spend more then 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th COMBINED. Of course if anyone mentions cutting defense they get crucified. We have 8,000 nuclear weapons, more than enough to kill everyone on the planet several times, but our students need to share books and buy their own art supplies.

    @HolyGod Right, I think people are scared of `cutting defense`, but I don`t really think of it as `cutting defense` I think of it as `cutting ridiculous military spending`. A lot of the spending is due to the fact that we`ve been in a war(which hasn`t been defense for a long time), but I don`t think we need the huge military that we currently have unless we are planning on going to war again sometime soon. We need to have enough resources to be able to deal with national defense issues if the need arises, but I don`t think we should plan on taking offensive action any time soon. We just can`t afford it.

    Obama still took the chicken sh*t road making it a states rights issue. Please point out any other instance in which Obama has supported a states rights issue. He agreed with James "the bitter peanut" Carter who said on Charlie Rose that states rights are just another word for racism.
    It was a political calculation forced by Joe Biden who was making his own political calculation.

    Straight people need to stop with the public displays of affection! They insist on rubbing their relationships in our faces. They even have this ceremony called "marriage" where they kiss right in front of all their friends and family!

    And worse, the liberal media has FILLED our screens and newspapers with this filth! I can`t turn on the television without seeing some straight couple making out.

    How many male politicians must we see with their arm around the waist of their wives whilst out campaigning? And they kiss them too! In public no less! Sickening!

    I`ve got nothing against breeders, but why must they rub it in our faces like that? Keep it in the damn closet!

    The President of the United States being in favor of gay marriage and equality is a huge deal. This is one of the many reasons a paid commenter like @[email protected] is sent to sites like this to distract from Obama`s accomplishments. It`s a classic Karl Rove move and pretty amusing to watch once you recognize it.

Also, I would like to remind you that people were thrown in jail for slandering him around the time of the civil war, and many history has been skewed and mis-written to represent Lincoln as a hero and not the murderer that he was.

    @markust123 Markust is right guys, NO ONE could possibly have a negative opinion about our lord and savior Obama. 5cats, myself, and anyone that speaks negatively about our president are paid to do so.

    Now, Markie, I`m going to actually comment on your argument: Obama has not been the first president or politician to support gay rights, so it`s NOT a big deal. Bill Clinton supported gay rights if I remember correctly, and plenty of politicians do as well. However, I will say again, Obama`s current support of gay rights does NOTHING to actually help the gay community. It`s up to congress and the lawmakers to create legislation that will create or destroy equality. Obama can only sign it into law if it is made a federal issue.

    "states rights are just another word for racism"

    That`s a million times wrong. States rights are about letting a small, more controlled, and less diverse population decide what is best for THEIR state. (For example, the needs of New York are probably WAY different than the needs of Alabama on many different issues: education, industry and bussiness, etc.) It is also about giving the people more control over their own government, which is what a lot of the founding fathers had in mind when creating our government from the start. Pulling the race card isn`t even relevant anymore. There isn`t really any institutionalized racism these days anymore, it`s all mostly instigated and egged on by individuals. (and the news media) In fact, there are a lot of local black politicians in the south. Probably not as many as there should be due to prejudice from individual voters, but the system itself isn`t
    preventing them from being there.

    @FoolsPrussia Also, I`d like to discuss more what the man DID than what he SAID. So, if you want to continue this debate, I`d like to discuss more about his actions than his speeches, since speeches can only do so much good as the president.

    "Obama`s current support of gay rights does NOTHING to actually help the gay community. It`s up to congress and the lawmakers to create legislation that will create or destroy equality. Obama can only sign it into law if it is made a federal issue. "

    Doesn`t it seem a little hypocritical to say that it is all up to congress when it comes to changing things like this but then rag on Obama when things you want done don`t get done? You can`t have it both ways. Either he is in charge and gets credit or you can`t blame him.

    There isn`t institutionalized racism because the federal government stepped in. If it wasn`t for the national guard forcing equality on the southern states in the 60s who knows how long it would have taken them to have it on their own. And it will take the federal government to force gay equality on them as well.

    Certain things should be state issues, but things like human rights should not.

    I think you misunderstood me. I wasn`t ragging on Obama for all of these things not getting done. I was upset that he made these promises that he most likely wouldn`t have been able to single-handedly do in the first place, and then he doesn`t even so much as address these issues. All those things he said were empty promises. Why are the things he`s saying now about gay rights any different? My point is that I don`t think the position of president is supposed to have as much power or influence as the media and American public seem to attach to it. This country isn`t supposed to be ruled by one man.

    "Certain things should be state issues, but things like human rights should not."
    I agree completely, but I think claiming that states rights is a form of institutionalized racism is nothing more than media flaim-baiting.

    "There isn`t institutionalized racism because the federal government stepped in. If it wasn`t for the national guard forcing equality on the southern states in the 60s who knows how long it would have taken them to have it on their own. And it will take the federal government to force gay equality on them as well. "
    An interesting point. I`ll agree that the federal government actually did do a decent job in getting rid of institutionalized racism at that time, and I agree that the federal government should get involved if such laws ever come up again, as laws such as these are unconstitutional. However, like I`ve said before, my opinion is that the rampant racism that was present in the Jim Crowe south may

    not have been there in the first place if the southern states were allowed to practice their constitutional right to secede and make their own decisions. The southern politicians were mostly racist, but a lot of southerners were actually starting to show opposition to slavery, even during the civil war. (Blacks that served the confederacy in the war were promised their freedom and some were even promised land)

    I have a very positive and fun job that pays quite well thank you.

    Here`s a tip @eddy666. Or should I say 5Cats. If your favorite band is something obscure as Blue Oyster Cult don`t put that down as the only identifier in your fake person. The other give away was you were defending 5Cats yesterday when he was nowhere to be seen and had not been mentioned.

    It`s good to see that you are working though 5Cats. Even if it is something as scummy as being a paid commenter - it`s a job. And that is awesome.

    @markust123 Blue Oyster Cult isn`t even obscure and 5cats recommended I put that on my profile or whatever since I didn`t have anything previously. You were participating in that thread when it happened, you silly goose.
