    Last campaign he didn't reveal he viewed marriage as between man and woman until the last day.

    Or this time around will he just skip that little detail in order to keep from upsetting gay people with what he actually thinks?

    It'd be nice if the media put some pressure on him to expose his views a little earlier, but is there anyone who expects him to do that.


    Imagine the media posting a truthful headline. "Obama shares Santorum and Bachmann's view on gay marriage."

    I agree. It's a big deal if a republican says marriage should be between man and woman, it's nothing if Obama says the same thing.

    Oh I imagine he will avoid the question.....but he will have a lot more flexibility to answer it after the election is over.

    Yes but with gay marriage being an important topic to a lot of ppl he should talk about his stance more imo.

    I'm talking about what he thinks about you and the person you're either married to or want to be married to for example.

    I think the main reason is the republican party wants the monopoly on being anti-gay marriage and the democrat party wants to pretend they favor gay rights. Both are lies in order to get votes and the media shows their ever-present obedience to gov't by not questioning it.
