It's the other side who has been pushing these civil issues more and more with ballots to take rights away from minorities and women.
You think he should have waited till Romney threw it at him in the debates?
Obama ended Don't ask... and he is for equality for all Americans. Romney not so much. Let Americans choose between freedom and a bedroom nanny state. With rules meant to support a dying institution apparently. It must be if people think the State must force it on us, why else would such interference be needed?

Didn't he already clarify his position in 2008 when he told MTV he believes marriage is "between a man and a woman" and that he is "not in favor of gay marriage."
Earlier this week David Axlerod said Obama's position was on Gay marriage was "evolving".
Isn't it about time America elected an adult to be president?
It's about freakin' time...
But seriously, I don't care what he declares. I don't care what he thinks, feels, or even believes. I care what he does. He masterminded the overturning of DADT, and our military is only stronger for it. If he takes this declaration and turns it into support for nationwide protection of SSM (though it's really up to the supreme court), then he will really support it. Saying something isn't enough. Gotta do something for it to truly matter.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Real quick: Before you reply with "civil unions are enough"(which Romney suddenly doesn't support) or something of the sort you should know that a "marriage", in the legal context, boils down to a binding contract. The benefits partners have by way of Civil Unions are the same benefits "married" heterosexual partners have. The only difference is that "married" couples enter into a legal binding contract. You guys are seriously up in arms over a contract?! Lets be real here..."married" or not, gay people are still going to LOVE each other. They're going to live together and do all the same things "legally" married people do. Love is the foundation of a marriage....not the contract. You are never going to stop homosexuals from loving each other. Ever. Why cant they be legally bound to each other like we can?
Anyway, I'm guessing Romney...devolved...since he once felt discrimination against LGB&T's had to stop and now he's clearly taken another position and, I gather by your very own words, highlighting the fact Obama has taken two positions and suggesting he's a child for doing so, that this "adult" we should elect is NOT Mitt Romney?
Or is it okay to switch positions when it suits your beliefs?
"For some voters it might be enough for me to simply match my opponent's record in this area. But I believe we can and must do better. If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will." Mitt Romney 1994

Silly poor people
Tax cuts are for the rich!
Not saying this applies to the post above, but when people make these baseless remarks you have to speculate on what motivates such overzealous hatred of our President.
The leader of the free world supports marriage equality. The world and the United States is a better place.
Add to that, Navy has made many, many posts with a (IMO) homophobic tone. He is not comfortable with homosexuality. Therefore this story in particular brings out the vile rage, hating his President, President Obama with every pore of his body.
How does an American hate his President? You can disagree and criticize, but how to you call yourself a patriot and spew such vile hatred toward you President, your leader?
