Repost Roulette: One Year Ago Today ..... BIG NEWS: Obama Comes Out For Equality


It was just last year that he said it, and it still makes me, grin ear-to-ear, at the idea that the first ever sitting President has publicly declared that I deserve equality.

“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a 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.” 
President Barack Obama

Bob,

This is when the dam broke. Obama deserves credit but Joe Biden is the one who gave him the final shove. Thank you Joe!
