President Obama voices support for same-sex marriage

U.S. — President Barack Obama, who previously said his views on the issue were "evolving," said Wednesday he supports same-sex marriage.

"At a certain point, I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to affirm same-sex couples should be able to get married," Obama said in an interview with ABC News.

Obama was "disappointed" by Tuesday's vote on the issue in North Carolina, which he described as discriminatory against gays and lesbians, a spokesman said earlier Wednesday.

North Carolina voted to implement a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, which was already prohibited in the state. Supporters of the measure pushed for the constitutional amendment, arguing that it was needed to ward off future legal challenges.

We should all think twice and consider the long term impact of anthing the chameleon sitting in the WH does until and until the coming election. Then thank God we voted this moron out of office. What he will do for a vote just simply boggles the mind! He has no respect for even himself. Where is the fast forward button people so we can get this November election over and take back our nation for our children and grandchildren.

I do not support gay marriage and I am disappointed that the president of USA does.
