In a bold move, President Barack Obama says he’s ALL FOR GAY MARRIAGE…
Some may think this was merely a political move to stay out front of Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The Republican candidate immediately jumped on it and said, "Marriage is between a man and a woman only!"
And with Obama is only slightly ahead in the polls that matter – far from where he’s been in the past – many think this will be a very close race. Most observers feel the President’s position on gay marriage will not help him much and in fact, may cost him valuable support.
Let’s face it, this much of this nation still leans away from gays getting married. Me, I say live and let live. If two people want to marry that are of the same sex, and it doesn’t hurt anybody else, let it be.
Besides, those divorce cases will be a hoot!
If Obama wins – and I think he’s still unbeatable barring a major turn of events or scandal – he will likely one day go down as a great president. I know many of you don’t agree, but he will probably get credit for STOPPING A MAJOR DEPRESSION, ENDING THE WAR, KILLING OSAMA BIN LADEN & GETTING HEALTH CARE FOR EVERYBODY.
Yep, it all will have happened on his watch and that’s how it works.
The bad news is the economy is still weak, money is tight for most people and jobs are scarce. Good ones that pay anyway. However, he wasn’t the president that got us into this mess.
The best thing the President has going in this race is Mitt Romney himself, a major millionaire, who was born into money. Mitt has little first hand knowledge of economic pressures a family faces. He doesn’t have a strong platform, other than to attack Obama and fingerpoint. His saying, I will fix this economic nightmare is simply talk, there seems to be no plan.
I think all these economic issues are simply going to take time – years unfortunately.
Hey, with Obama behind gay marriage, can legalizing marijuana be far behind?
The truth is both of these will happen, but like the troubled economy, it will take years.
