  • I had not heard this...quite surprising actually! Its all politics. He says whatever he has to say to be in the majority! He probably feels it a "middle of the road" approach. But really, it sounds like he is talking out both sides of his mouth to try to please both sides of the issue.

  • It's pretty simple really, he is opposed to it religiously but recognizes that it is a civil rights issue not a religious one and is keeping church and state separate.

  • The President will say whatever he thinks he needs to say to appease the group he is addressing.

  • He is only for it at election time so the gays will vote for democrats. He does talk out of both sides of his mouth a lot.

  • Did you read this somewhere? Where are you getting this information? What are your sources?

    Seriously?  It's all over.,_One-Woman_Marriage/ There's video of one of the many public appearances where he's said it out there, too, if you'd care to look.  Not really understanding how anyone could vote for him and NOT know this?
