80 reasons why no thinking American should vote for Obama in November 2012
Newsweek, Monday, May 14, 2012
Despite the fact Barack Obama is married with two children, Newsweek magazine is dubbing him "The First Gay President" on its latest cover, crowning him with a rainbow-colored halo.
The cover comes in the wake of Obama's newly declared support for homosexual marriage in America.
The May 14, 2012 edition, which hits newsstands today, features a column by Andrew Sullivan, an openly homosexual self-titled conservative political pundit.
"When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work," Sullivan said in a statement about his article.
"He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family," he wrote, discussing similarities between the president and the homosexual community.
Obama's declaration that he's now backing same-sex marriages is the first time a sitting president has expressed such an opinion.
"It's easy to write off President Obama's announcement of his support for gay marriage as a political ploy during an election year. But don't believe the cynics," representatives from Newsweek told Politico.
Obama's announcement came just days after Vice President Joe Biden indicated he was "absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and men and women marrying are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties."
This week's Newsweek cover is prompting a lot of reaction online already.
"This is the best," said Wilder Napalm of Louisville, Ky. "The left wing media is doing everything in their power to portray this as a good thing for Obama when in fact this is a disaster. He never had any intention of openly supporting gay marriage, if he did he would have done it long ago. But good old Joe stepped in it again. He left Obama no choice but to support gay unions or risk losing the support of the gay community. I'll bet Obama could kill Biden about now."
"I am surprised," says John Wolf of St. Louis. "Newsweek has six subscribers? I dropped them when they made up stuff for Obama during the election.
And Larry in California noted: "Clinton was our first black president, according to author Toni Morrison. And Chris Matthews says we can't vote Obama out because he's our first black president. I'm confused. Is Obama our first black president, or our first gay president, or our first affirmative-action president?"
