WTF Wednesday Posted on May 9, 2012 by Amy I’m really short on time today so I’m kind of phoning this one in. This award was easy, though. I’ll give you a few hints. This just in! President Obama seconds the nomination! So North Carolina, WTF? Rate this:Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related
Makes me almost wish I watched the news more often… or not… LOL
I literally only found out about his support through WordPress. I can’t remember the last time I saw the news. All I can say is, it’s pretty sad that we live in a world where people STILL can’t freely live their lives and where a leader only publically says what he thinks will get him (re)elected.
(That’s honestly not a dig at Obama… just every kind of politician alive today and the whole damn system.)
I don’t feel like what Obama said was to get him reelected. Those that feel the same way were most likely already voting for him and those that feel the opposite were most likely not going to vote for him. I think he felt it was the right thing to do so he did it. Unfortunately, there are probably a lot of people who feel that it was all political, but it doesn’t change the fact that he said it and is for it. Those campaigning for office can say whatever they want to influence voters, but when you are the current President and make a statement like this, it holds a little more weight in my opinion.
True enough… but if he had that opinion before – and I believe he did – why didn’t he say it?
He approved of gay marriage when he ran for state Senate and then said he approved of Civil Unions and full rights for gay couples when he ran for US Senate, but wouldn’t commit to saying he approved of gay marriage again until now.
Okay, so kudos in the early days… but again, why not say anything since?
Anyway, I think you see my point… I don’t like to argue politics, honestly… and frankly, it’s a moot point for me since I can’t vote LOL
Amo, you may have just lost your all republican friends on this one, all I can say is politics is a no, no amoung our friends and even relatives (as well as religion.) Good luck.
Why? I didn’t mention one thing about Republicans. I just believe that everyone deserves to have equal rights. I don’t care who disagrees with me – that’s THEIR right, but no one will ever be able to convince me to think otherwise.
