Obama supports same-sex marriage!

Yesterday, Obama stated that, “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.” Before this, he said things such as “my views on same-sex marriage is evolving” but he never came out and directly said that he supports gay marriage. My guess is that he did this to gain support from conservatives choosing between him and Mitt Romney. Although it is great that he supports same-sex marriage, many supporters may now turn to Mitt Romney!

What do you think about this?
