Let it be marked, today, that President Barack Obama, Barry as call him at our weekend barbecues, has endorsed same-sex marriage.
“I’ve concluded that for me personally, it’s important to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.” – President Obama, May 9, 2012.
Naysayers will claim re-election ploy – and maybe it is, who knows? – but even if that is the case, it’s not one he can likely turn around and take back. So, I consider this a win for the United States of America.
