Barack Obama's Minnesota campaign made it clear that the President is opposed to a homophobic state ballot initiative that would define marriage as between one man and one woman: "While the President does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the record is clear that (he) has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same sex couples."
Similarly, Obama's campaign in North Carolina issued a statement in March with the same language in opposition to a constitutional state amendment that would also prevent same-sex unions. Of course, the Prez has yet to actually defend gay marriage, sticking by his tiresome statement that his views continue to "evolve."
Perhaps once Romney wraps the Republican nomination and Obama begins campaigning in earnest, he can reveal his true beliefs and like Lyndon B. Johnson before him—who steamrolled Civil Rights legislation in America—at last force the hand of true justice for all. *
