Obama: “I Think Same-Sex Couples Should Be Able To Get Married.”

by 1 year, 11 months ago View Comments

President Obama became the first U.S. president to openly endorse gay marriage during an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts this afternoon, stating:

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.

This follows Vice President Biden’s similar statement made this past Sunday, and North Carolina’s very not similar statement made yesterday.
