Barack Obama Talks Gay Marriage on The View

Obama Corrects Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Clarifies His View on Gay Marriage

President Obama came on The View today to talk hot topics, specifically gay marriage. The ladies on the show made for supportive hosts, as even the most conservative of the bunch, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, has voiced support for equal marriage rights in the past. Even so, Elisabeth challenged the president to explain how his position of letting the states define marriage differs from Mitt Romney's. She said, "at this point, you both said leave it to the states to decide." Obama was ready to respond, saying, "Elisabeth, that's actually not true," pointing out that Mitt Romney favors a federal constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a man and a woman. Obama also promised that gay marriage would provide a big contrast between him and his GOP rival. Watch the clip, and tell us if you think Obama's smart to make gay marriage a campaign issue.

It's ridiculous that this is even a debate, are Americans not embarrassed at the vast amount of ignorance prejudice and wicked sentiment offered by your so called religious lovers of God.. your God would be ashamed of you. as are the rest of the world..
