POLL: Do You Agree with Obama on Gay Marriage Support?

The president told ABC that 'gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly and equally.'

U.S. President Barack Obama told ABC's Robin Roberts in a sit-down interview that will air on "Good Morning America" on Thursday that he is supportive of gay marriage.

The Huffington Post reports that Obama told Roberts, "I've always been adamant that gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly and equally.

" ... It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."

The economy has created 4.5 million jobs since he's been around. That isn't anything little considering how many were lost each year the years before he took his oath. And, who exactly were homosexuals voting for before his announcement? The guy who signed a pledge vowing to never allow marriage equality??? I don't think so.

As opposed to all other politicians who never pander to their base? Who are those politicians, exactly?

Read the Bible, please! Just remember this Sunday to stay away from bacon and don't ever eat at Red Lobster. The next time a girl you know has her time of the month be sure she stays away from your village for the week and then makes the proper sacrifice before she is allowed back.

BMF - You really believe that lie from his ad? His math is way off. He claims in his campaign ad that there were “4.4 million American jobs lost” in 2008 prior to Obama’s presidency. That's a don't blame me, blame Bush tactic that he always falls back on because he cannot accept responsibility for his failures which are many. This job loss figure is a lie because according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 2.8 million jobs were lost in 2008. A full 1.6 million less than his campaign ad claims, meaning he inflated the number by almost 40%. Then there is the lie that he created 4.2 million jobs (not 4.5 millon). Another BIG lie. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the total number of Americans employed has shrank 322,000 under Obama; from 142.187 million in January 2009 to 141.865 million last month. How can Obama create 4.2 million jobs throughout his presidency when total employment has actually shrunk by 322,000? The Flim-Flam Man strikes again.

It has already impacted insurance premiums. If you were married, you used to be able to get insurance for your husband/wife at a reasonable cost. NOW that insurance companies have to factor in how many MORE domestic partners will be added. Rates have at least doubled.These companies will not say it, but Gay couples have a risker lifestyle.
