    Thank you ,Mr. President! Wishing you the best of everything and four more years in the oval office.

  2. Intelligent, liberal and sexy. Why would anyone not want him as president?

    1. Huumm, talk about sexy !

    Typical Republicans, the states should be allowed to do whatever they like unless it’s something they don’t approve of.

    There’s no chance of an amendment to the constitution banning gay marriage at this stage. They need 67% of both houses to vote in favour and then 75% of state governments to support it. That’s not going to happen.

  4. Why oh why can’t Cameron say this to our UK LBGT community? Instead of pussyfooting and pandering. Wish Obama was our PM.

  5. It’s easier to blow up the WTC again in another terrorist attack in New York, than to approve an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    I have so incredible strong fear in this last weeks about upcoming November 6… What, if – if – Barack will loose? Even this four ‘referendums’ on same-sex marriage are for me at the moment not so very significant as the victory or defeat of our dear friend in the White House.

    1. I am afraid as well. One thing my 34 years on this planet has taught is to NEVER underestimate the power of stupid people.
      And Amrikka is FULL of stupid.
      As a woman who is bi and has a trans medical history, has bipolar.
      AND I worship as a Muslim. Yes! MY LIFE LITERALLY depends
      on Obama winning. If Mitt wins then My life is done. My medicare will be cut. Ssi which is my ONLY income will be gone. The few rights I have Obama has granted my kind will be snatched away. Smh.
      Please America Vote back in President Obama. :(

    I noticed today on another news item that a lot of US folks think that liberal, progressive people are the enemy…

    Do they not know the opposites are “oppressive” and “regressive”?

    1. They are repeating what Fox has told them. What right-wing hate radio has told them. They are the perfect tools of the propaganda merchants – lacking intellectual curiosity and easy to manipulate (note how often they will say “socialist” and “communist” when clearly they have no faculties to even explain what those words mean).

      In short – Morons.

      I have never met someone who identified themselves as Republican than I didn’t think was a dumb frightened little sheep.

      1. Do you not think that the liberal, leftist biased media is putting out its own propaganda? Don’t be so simple minded to think that only the right-wing has a strong agenda. Many lliberals are ignorant, poorly-read voters and are like sheep following the majority of media in the USA

  8. I love this guy. Massive crush.

  9. Good for him. “We the people” means ALL of the people, not just the one’s the mouth-breathing evangelicals approve of.

    Rmoney has already said he doesn’t represent 47% of the population. Add in the LGBT people, the Latino people he has infuriated, a whole pile of women (Binders full) and the only people he really believes in are the wealthy straight white men.

    How anyone can think the hateful mendacious “Bishop” of a boneheaded cult is leadership material boggles my mind.

    It is easy to believe that Barack Obama stands for all (even those who don’t like him) and will uphold his oath. RMoney? No chance.

    Oh, and the White House social media tools went purple yesterday for Spirit Day. Good for them too.

    1. Gripe as much as you like but after Nov 6. Romney will be our new Pres. — thank you God!!!

  10. Obama is no angel or even very competent – few politicians ever are – but the world will be even uglier than it is if he doesn’t win. What really disturbs me is that an oaf like Romney can spout crap – he claims he will cut the deficit AND cut rich people’s taxes AND increase defence spending AND create 12 million jobs – and express contempt for nearly half his fellow citizens – and deny States’ rights to their own marriage laws – and it can still be a close race. America is really scary now.

    What a contrast President Obama is to Mitt Romney, who seems set on removing the rights of gays and lesbians across America. VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA

    1. He is not going to remove LGBT rights, all he wants to do is make sure that the Bible is not outlawed in the USA, as Obama would like.

  12. PeterinSydney 21 Oct 2012, 3:46am

    What a contrast President Obama is to Mitt Romney,. The later seems intent on removing all legitimate rights already gained. He must be stopped. VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA

  13. It would be a tragedy for the USA if Mitt Romney were ever to become its President. Let’s not forget that Romney is actually guilty of a vile, disgusting homophobic, sexist, misogynistic and transphobic assault on a young student which might even have been sexually-motivated. The fact that it happened several decades ago and his victim is now sadly deceased doesn’t alter the fact that Romney tried to conceal this crime and when it finally came to the surface has taken a dismissive attitude to it with the backing of a republican biased media who have attempted to sanitise it as a ‘prank’. It’s a sad indictment of the USA that this criminal has even been thought to be fit enough to be selected as a presidential candidate let alone the disasterous prospect of a deranged person like that ever coming to power.

  14. Also, I read that Romney’s son was actually caught expressing a desire to physically assault Obama the other day and confessed that the only thing that was stopping him was that knew he wouldn’t be able to get away with it in the full glare of cameras and publicity. Now, supposing a member of the public was caught expressing a desire to launch an attack on the president of the USA – we’d probably be locked up as suspected terrorists before you could even say Guantanamo Bay! . One law for the rich; one law for the poor, eh? You gotta love the irony of calling the USA the ‘land of the free’ as it’s fairly obvious that you have to pay for everything!

  15. I voted for President Obama and plan to vote for him again. It is seldom said, but he has exceeded expectations as our President. The idea that this country would choose to return to Bush like thinking is beyond understanding. When our choice to move FORWARD is on the line this really should have been a landslide for Mr Obama.

    1. Obama’s actions are much more pro-muslim than it is pro-America. He is a dangerous man in having the USA live up to its Constitution. Romney will protect our liberties and freedoms much more than is Obama is doing. We have less privacy and rights than we did 4 yrs. ago. Let Obama go back to his 3rd world country and lead them to wherever he likes.
