Video – Obama’s Speech At The Sheraton, NYC LGBT Fundraiser: Enjoy The Tiramisu And Thanks For The $$$’s Suckers!

OBAMA: Part of the reason that DOMA doesn’t make sense is that traditionally marriage has been decided by the states and right now, I understand there is a little debate going on here in New York about whether to join five other states and DC in allowing civil marriage for gay couples. And I want to say that under the leadership of Governor Cuomo, with the support of Democrats and Republicans, New York is doing exactly what democracies are supposed to to do. There is a debate, there is a deliberation about what it means here in New York to treat people fairly in the eyes of the law and that is — look, that’s the power of our democratic system.

Actually America should NOT be voting on Civil Rights Mr. President because if it were the norm and the “democratic” thing to do you would have never been born and if you were you would never have been able to become President.
