“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don't ask, don't tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

    He must me the one or two soldiers that like him. He can't mean the whole military. He is trying desperately to get votes anywhere he can.

    I am a U.S. Army veteran. The President was talking about soldiers fighting on his & our behalf as American citizens. It's really easy to misunderstand things if you really want to.

    He said, 'MY behalf' No amount justification can change the fact that he said 'MY BEHALF'
    No where was he inferring anything about the Citizens of the United States.

    I know what he said and I also know what he meant by it. It's easy to find fault when you want to, isn't it?

    It's time to look at this man for what he is and not just because he is black.

    A person needs more in common with me than race to get my support. Apparently, you don't know me.

    Just because Obama carries the title Commander-in-Chief doesn't doesn't mean the troops under his command care enough to put him first ahead of their family and friends to fight for. No they fight for all America and he is part of this America, the same as all of us here on SH.

    Too bad they can't openly say their opinions about him in during their free time without fear of repercussion.

    You don't know grammar rules otherwise you would know he used the only possessive pronoun he could in the context in which he was speaking. Doesn't surprise, though.

    Or, he could have just used the word "our" instead of the word "my".
    Nah. His ego wouldn't let him.

    lol...As if Obama was using "rules of grammar" when talking-- just like his educated conclusion about the debt ceiling as a Senator! His words aren't based on facts, it's based only on his perception and ambulance chaser's view of the nation.

    Clearly you're SO intellectually superior to everyone else and we should all just stop responding for fear the grammar police may slap us down and invalidate our content based on mistakes! Too bad you're not as harsh on Obama and his self proclaimed visits to "57" States! "Not surprised."

    No President in the history of America has EVER used the word 'MY' when referring to 'OUR' troupes. If you would pull your head out of the mire of Liberal slug you would at least see that comment as ridiculous.
