    Because Obama is a shrewd and cynical political opportunist. He has a history of trying to play both sides of any issue for maximum political benefit. Obama doesn't seem to really believe in any cause other than furthering his own political career and ambitions.

    Maybe he'd be less opportunistic in a second term and pursue his true ideological goals -- if he actually has any -- and that's actually what scares me most about an Obama second term. As he told Medvedev, he'll be more "flexible" in his second term on a lot of issues. I don't personally care about the gay marriage issue. That's not my concern. My concern is Obama's true ideological position on a host of other issues that affect all of us, not just a small demographic.

    it's about trying to sit the fence (as usual) and take no responsibiltiy for his own words (as usual) and leading from behind (as usual) so that he squeak out another win for president.

    Nice try! Self Defense is a Basic Right! One of the most basic!

    And you're saying Bidens Gaff is not a problem for a guy who has yet to clearly state his case on the topic?

    Or does Anderson get thrown a Milkbone by his hnadlers that pay him over 3 mil a year?

    Self defense and neighborhood watch are two different things, Of course both of which need to come with pictures with you.

    Obama will do just fine no matter what. Anderson had a good question. ehh such is politics.

    Yeah sure! I still have a "Picture" of three men who attempted a home invasion and my Pop popped a cap into one of them! This in a wealthy neighborhood! I also sat in court listening to the testimony of a girlfriend of mine who was raped repeatedly at gun point by Illegal Alien Gang Members who had done this to over 6 women and murdered ones husband!

    Now take your "Tra La Laa the worlds a peaceful place" and draw an accurate picture!

    Once again as you try to conjure up some lame comment. I am not a "Romney Supporter"!

    Would I vote for him to get Dumbo (who you have a boner for) out of office? Maybe? I really have not decided.

    Oh and my Brother is on Neighborhood Watch and when so carrys a gun! Perfectly legal! And as stated my family has defended itself from persons attempting illegal things with firearms legally & successfully!

    President Obama is quite decided on the issue, and supporters of same sex marriage already know this. He is just keeping his mouth shut as not to alienate voters who are against same sex marriage and might not vote for him if he takes a position.

    In his statement issued today,
    he criticized North Carolina voters
    (a state he needs, but he did the same thing to Pennsylvania in 2008 and won there),
    and took a position on same sex marriage; he is for it.

    Perhaps they are calculating that sitting on the fence would be more damaging than taking a position, not sure. But considering that even the blue areas of North Carolina went strongly for the amendment, and every other state that has put the issue on a ballot has turned down same sex marriage, I am not sure it was a very good strategic move. The "black vote" always goes about 90% for a Democrat presidential candidate, so no loss there, but the so called "hispanic vote" (which I do not think is a monolithic voting block to begin with) should take a major hit from this, and the Catholic Church's opposition to a second term for Obama.

    But he is still sitting on the fence because he kicked the can down the road for others to make the decision by saying it should be left up to the states....he should feel the same about health care!!!! Why is that so different? Because he is pandering. Pandering to the Hollywood Elite Progressives, pandering to the poor, pandering to the minorities and college age, etc.
    He could be hurt by the Hispanics because, down here, they are still VERY Catholic.

    The "hispanics" label is as good as "whites", as it means very little as far as a group of voters go. But yes, many people from the south of our southern border are indeed Catholic, and pro-life to boot. The only "hispanics" that will be voting for Obama are like their "white" counterparts, ones who want free stuff.

    Obama panders well to Hollywood, he still has that down pat, but he needs to be concerned about the electorate in general, and the only groups of voters he has left are women voters (he has apparently not gone below 50% yet, which amazes me), and college age voters. Good luck to him winning an election when he has alienated and upset quite a few groups of voters.

    The man is a damn fool, which we know, but talk about putting it on display, my goodness.

    If he comes (poor use of words) out and says yes then he offends the Christian right and loses votes. If he comes out (there I go again) then stands to lose money and votes with the gay/lesbian community. Once again he straddles the fence as he does with just about every evry major decision. If reelected he is going to have one hell of a time trying to catch up to the back log since 2009. What about the new challenges that he will face?
