It’s official, I’m in!
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you have probably noticed drips from my liberal bleeding heart partially saturating my posts but you might also have taken note that I’ve had several issues with some of the Obama administration’s policies (it should be single payer, universal healthcare for one).
Well, something happened today that brought me to happy tears.
“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, 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.”- President Obama
I didn’t think he’d do it preelection,if at all, but thankfully he proved me wrong.
Thank you Mr. President. I’m in.
If anyone knows of a Demorcratic group of American expats in Rio or the surrounding area or any way I can help from here, please let me know. Thank you.
