Obama Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

President Obama endorsed same-sex marriage on Wednesday in an interview with ABC News, ending speculation following Vice President Biden's seemingly off-hand remarks in support of gay marriage rights earlier this week. The endorsement also comes one day after the passage in North Carolina of a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, and raises, at least for the moment, a controversial social issue in a campaign season that has largely been focused on the economy.

As an openly gay man, I find the Log Cabin Republicans' spin on Obama's support for same-sex marriage as twisted as Romney's many contradictions on the same subject. It boggles my mind how the Log Cabin people can be so self destructive.
