Michelle Obama Talks Supreme Court and Marriage Equality
The First Lady made an important point about the role of the Supreme Court in marriage equality while campaigning for her husband. Yesterday at a TriBeca fundraiser hosted by Robert Deniro and his wife, Mrs. Obama said "...Let us not forget what [the Supreme Court's] decisions — the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come — on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and, yes, love whomever we choose."
She made a similar statement at a fundraiser in Chelsea earlier that day this time citing how today's court decisions can affect future generations. "Let's not forget the impact [the Supreme Court's] decisions will have on our children's lives for decades to come — on their privacy and security; on whether they can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever they choose."
Personally, I think President Obama holds the same position as his wife on gay marriage, but can't say so out loud because it would likely cost him votes and/or the Republicans would try to pull a 2004 and make it a wedge issue. Especially with their current quest for a "true conservative." But I have a feeling if he gets a second term he'll "evolve" in the right direction.
