Obama Gay Marriage

President Obama publicly endorsed gay marriage — and celebrities such as Kim Kardashian & Rachel Zoe took to Twitter to show their gratitude!

President Obama has just taken a definitive stance on one of the most controversial and politically charged social issues of the decade: same-sex 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,” Obama said during a televised interview on May 9.

Within minutes, various celebrities took to their Twitter accounts to praise Obama’s message of equality.

“Thank you, President Obama! No more living in the past!” tweeted Kim Kardashian.

“Thank you Mr. President for your support of gay marriage…” wrote hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons.

“Such an exciting day!!!” echoed fashion stylist Rachel Zoe.

“Almost all of the NY trends listed on Twitter right now are about marriage equality. Amazing!” posted Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer.

He’s lying of course…he lies every time his lips move – Personally, I wish he meant it because it’s probably the ONLY thing I agree with him on but truth is….it’s an election year and the Prez needs voters so he is busy playing up to ALL those voters who may not be in his court. He’s tried animal advocates and that backfired. He’s tried women’s rights and heaven only knows what will be next. He is a desperate man and will tell anyone whatever they want to hear to get their vote.

“should” is as good as his use of the word “hope”. Meaningless.

Presidential election is getting close and every aspiring candidate woulddo anything to win the heart of every voter esp celebrities who have their followers.

I am happy that people of the same sex can get married but that is not the biggest problem of the USA: ECONOMY, jobs for everyone.
