My president has handled this beautifully.

I really have to give him credit. I thought the NC vote yesterday would be the final nail in the coffin to any possibility of support for it in 2012, since he could point to that and tell the activists to calm down if they want to win.

Goes up a few in my irrelevant book. Smiley

Romney's 180 turn on this will make for an interesting topic come the debates.

His reelection fate is sealed.

Uh, no.  People who vote on the gay marriage issue alone and oppose it weren't going to vote for him, anyway, especially since his true feelings on this issue were generally assumed prior to this.

OMG, Romneyslide!!!

Most of the people who are against it weren't going to support him anyway and any people who are against and voted for him before will not change their vote, because they don't usually vote for candidates based on the issue.

I don't think he's turning anymore; I think he's just become an amorphous blob:

Moderator: Do you support gay marriage?

Obama: Yes.

Romney: Well, um, uh, well, I, um, certainly support the, um, gay and lesbian, um, well...I'd like to pass on this one, Bob.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

I'm sure there will be much debating about how this helps or hurts him in November. But win or lose, it's good to see our President standing up for what he believes, and what half of Americans now believe, is simply the right thing in this country.

I'm just glad Obama finally decided to stop riding both sides of the fence and just went ahead and stood up for what he believes in. It's about time.

Good job President Obama!

I assume North Carolina's vote made him support gay marriage I guess.

Well, finally. I doubt this will affect him; most people already assume he supports it.

Great news.

His reelection fate is sealed.

I take back this comment. Regardless of his beliefs on the matter, this is the smartest or the dumbest political move made by this President. We'll find out in November.

But wait a minute, I thought that the economy is going to decide this election?

Romney's position has "evolved," too ... backwards! He must be the only person in the country who was more comfortable with gay rights in the 1990's than he is now.
