    Respond to the shiny object. Ignore that he waited until after votes that rejected gay marriage. Ignore that his 'evolution' was decided weeks ago (per the mayor of LA) or that he planned to announce it months from now (per obama). And ignore that he stated it was up to each state (washing his hands of it). Just knowing you have the 'moral' backing of the most cynical and morally bankrupt president in history means you should stand up and grunt and clap your fins as any well trained baby seal should.

    At least we now have an honest and intelligent President working hard for all Americans, not just the people he agrees with.

  6. The REAL Truth...

    @Joe – "Anything to buy ANOTHER election. Obama's lies have caught up with him."
    You guys really are good for a laugh. It's been stated that American voters are intelligent. Whoever said that obviously was talking about the teetrolls commenting here. LOL . Obama, "Buy" and election?? He doesn't need to.. that's what Mittens and his handlers are trying and you teepugs are buying it – big time... Please give me one (only one little) thing that Robmey is running on? I thought so.. right up there with the Grand Obstructionist Party. The party of no – no candidate, no platform, no compromise, no morals or integrity, no shame, and no chance in Nov.
    Thanks for playing Joe.

    Uh...truth and the goong I think you mean the gong. And since the gong was used for people with no talent I think obama is going,going, and, hopefully for America, will be gone.

    So, if Obama couldn't get anything done because everything he tried got shutdown then why vote for him again? Let's try someone new.

    "So, if Obama couldn't get anything done because everything he tried got shutdown then why vote for him again? Let's try someone new."

    Wait, what? That sound like the "pay the ransom" approach. Or, as you GOBP cultmembers like to say: appeasement. Here's a better idea, lets replace your rabidly partisan hacks and their massive failures at trying to govern with Ayn Rand fairy tales, and replace them with sane Dems.

    If he wins another term, to his supporters, everyone who voted against him will be "stupid." If he loses in November, to his supporters, everyone who voted against him will be "stupid." So, basically, anyone who disagrees with him, and with them, is "stupid." That is what we're dealing with.

    Having more money, privilege and power is a sign of moral superiority when YOU'RE the one who has more. When someone else has it, then it's unfair and violates someone else's "rights." The entire premise of today's Democrat party.
