    I thought everyone knew that. He may have played coy with his answers but do you think people didn't know where he stood on the issue?

    Obama says, "Ask Brian Williams if I am lying!".

    Jedi Knight..are you telling me that you didn't know where Obama stood on the issue in 2008? That he somehow concealed it from you?

    In 2008, he said: "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage." I don't "recall" Brian Williams doing the interview though. :)

    Let's look at the whole quote:

    “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about.” - Nov. 2, 2008

    That is a good example of his coy answers, "I was for it, before I was against it" typical political answer. High profile politicians are masters at this type of thing.

    Not condoning, just an unfortunate reality.

    Just like he's concealed his place of birth. His being a Muslim. How he sacrificed four good men in Benghazi to placate Islamic ideals. His disdain for America, and desire to change it by giving it away. Can hardly wait until he writes his tell all book. :smilewinkgrin:

    Truth needs not worry about apologizing.
