Obama Appears in Radio Ad for Marriage Equality in Maryland: AUDIO


President Obama's statement endorsing marriage equality serves as the centerpiece of a new ad for marriage equality in Maryland.


WOMAN 1: So who are you voting for President?
WOMAN 2: (laughing) ...Who do you think?
WOMAN 1: I know...but what about Question Six? My Pastor says he's ok with it, but I just don't know...
WOMAN 2: I didn't know either, but then I heard President Obama supported marriage for gay couples.
WOMAN 1: Really?
WOMAN 2: You haven't heard him? I've got the clip here on my phone...
WOMAN 1: You have that on your phone?!!? (teasing)
WOMAN 2: Yes! It's THAT important...listen up:

OBAMA CLIP: "Same-sex couples should be able to get married. I had hesitated on gay marriage because I thought civil unions would be sufficient ... You know, Malia and Sasha, they've got friends whose parents are same-sex couples, it wouldn't dawn on them that their friends' parents would be treated differently. That's the kind of thing that prompts a change of perspective. When we think about our faith, it's also the golden rule..."
WOMAN 1: That is SO true...
WOMAN 2: Isn't it though? I'd always kinda been on the fence, but Obama makes it so simple: it's about fairness -- treating everyone equal under the law.
WOMAN 1: Well, if that's what a vote for Question Six means, I'm fired up and ready to go!

  1. We can't let Romney steal this election. Please everyone - Vote and tell your friends to vote! Romney will turn back the clock on LGBT progress, and we can't let that happen. We can all help with this election. Here are some ideas on how you can help -

    1. Join your state's Obama group on Facebook or Twitter (to show your support), and then share the group's news & events with others when possible

    2. Make a donation to Obama's organization - Organizing for America at - www.BarackObama.com. Every $10 helps.

    3. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, explaining why you support President Obama and VP Biden.

    4. Bring some drinks or food for the volunteers at your local Democrats/Obama office. This fuels the campaign.

    5. Volunteer at your local Obama office - Make some calls or knock on some doors. Remind people to vote!

    6. Do you know someone in a battleground state? If you know someone living in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado or Nevada - Tell them to vote! We need them!

    7. Share this list of ideas with others. Explain why you support Obama and why Romney would be a disaster for LGBT people and their cause. Every conversation helps.

    8. Vote early if possible. When you vote early, you're freeing up some space at the polls on Election Day. To see whether you can vote early, go to - www.Gottavote.org

    9. Show your support for Obama and his team - Put a yard sign in your yard, or put a bumper sticker on your car. We should show that the Prez has support.

    10. Elect officials who can work with Obama. As we've seen, the GOP has continued to obstruct President Obama, and that doesn't help us. We need a government that can work together. Please Vote!

  2. Great list, Tyler! I'm heading to Pennsylvania from New York to help protect the vote. That voter ID law in PA that's supposed to be suspended there for this election is still causing enough confusion there, that some folks may be discouraged from voting.
