  1. wonderful and thrilling news to everyone except gay republicans, who will have to once again accept the fact that a black liberal democrat with foreign-sounding-name is doing more for them than the white conservative republicans whose feet they've been licking.

  2. He didn't hear her question: I don't think she misspoke. She asked him if he would fight to see that HETEROSEXUALs states rights be changed to match those of HOMOSEXUALS!!! That is a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

  4. Get off "The View" You're the President of the United States. Stop governing by Robin Roberts, Jimmy Fallon and Barbara Walters. This topic is a good diversion from the economy, unemployment and his lackluster performance as president. Bum F--ker rights takes top priority.

  5. Okay now watched them all. Right here in our boat in Santa Barbara harbor using ECCO wifi! Thanks for these. Love the man! He is, as always, his own best spokesman.
    ....and gee, did he mean, Romney in the crack about the goal of 'only winning' an election, but having no plan past that?

  7. It will be interesting to watch the ever rising level of self-loathing
    among Republican gays, as they support an actual gay basher
    Like Mitt. Even Bush didn't chase after a gay kid and attack him.

    Gay GOP, how low can you go???

  8. I hate The View, but if you're trying to speak to lower and middle class women, there really is no other better venue (except, of course, Ellen).

  9. Did the President out Robin Roberts? He said he had been looking for a same-sex marriage endorsement interview where it would not just be political, but personal, and that he passed up The View in favor of Robin Roberts.

  10. He's burning too much capital on this subject, especially since nothing has been signed, Nice way to secure gay votes. When rest of country freaks, that will be his way out. We elect an African American president and we get a fairy fighter? He would have lost if this was anticipated.

  11. He's got it right and my vote screw all this...BLABBER!

  12. Canada has done a very thorough job ensuring that I never see this video.

    There are a lot of things to like about Canada, but our repressive culture and censorship laws are not among them.

  13. I'll second what Randy said.

    I'm a little tired of the excessive double standards that exist in media and the internet.

    On the bright side, I loathe The View and now I don't have to see it.

  14. @Jason
    We got a supporter of the Constitution of the United States. It is not the fault of the President of the United States that a very large portion of the electorate will wildly wave the first and second amendments for all to see, but they have no idea what the 14th amendment does for American citizens. You can complain about his being a fairy supporter or use any of the other pejoratives in your vocabulary, but the final outcome is that he expressed his support of the Constitution of the United States and ALL the citizens of the United States. In other words, he did his job, he spoke as the president of all citizens, and he followed his oath of preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution of the United States.
