Video: Obama Supporters at Inauguration Say They Personally Oppose Gay Marriage


The Daily Caller:

Following the inauguration of President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller asked attendees of the ceremony if they were surprised that the president mentioned gay rights in his address.

Even individuals who told TheDC that they oppose gay marriage said they still support President Obama, who “evolved” on the issue and announced his support of the practice last year.

    What a tragic lack of logic."I don't believe in gay marriage but I support the president's decision". All hail the Narcissist In Chief"!!

    Yes Barb it is the President's own decision for him to come out in support of support marriage equality. None of those interviewed will be affected if the gay couple down the street suddenly has civil recognition of their relationship. Those interviewed realize this even though they themselves would not have a same sex relationship.

    And there were many Mitt Romney supporters who DISAGREED with his stance AGAINST marriage equality. What's your point?

    It comes down to how often do you agree with your candidate? Most likely people who agreed with Romney on most issues aside from gay marriage voted for him. It's obvious that that issue wasn't as important as making sure our unemployment goes down, our debt shrinks and our economy prospers vs the left who seems to care more about what feels good , perpetuating a victim mentality for votes, and enslaving people to the welfare state to solidify constituencies, rather than actual responsibility.

    So it all comes down to priority. Do you wish to have an economically bankrupted country that has dismantled the basis of morality? Or do you want a country that prospers economically?

    edit: that prospers economically then handles social policy*
