Barack Obama: the first black gay president? At least according to Newsweek he is. Politically speaking, is this a good thing? According to a USA TODAY/Gallup poll 51% say they agree with the president’s decision. 60% say it will have no bearing on how they vote. Did Obama thread the needle?

    Gallop and Rasmussen are reporting two new polls as of today showing Romney now LEADING Obama!  This is in addition to two polls released last week showing Romney either leading or in a dead-heat with Obama!  The tide is turning…people outside of Liberal-land and Hollyweird are waking up and coming back to common sense…they are seeing what Obama really is – the weak-minded, hollow, empty, liar, panderer, elitist, socialist, gay-loving, speaking out of both sides of his mouth, anti-Israel, spineless man that he is!

      Wait… you lost me. Were you describing Romney or Obama in your last sentence?

         dw – NOTHING in that sentence describes Romney…educated people know the truth, and they would never describe Romney in those terms as just described to Obama!

          Really? No educated person would describe Romney as “hollow, empty, liar, panderer, elitist … speaking out of both sides of his mouth”? I realize that some of those words don’t apply — but c’mon elitist, panderer, speaking out of both sides of his mouth? That has Romney written all over it.

    As far as Obama being the first gay President, it has been hinted in the past that he is indeed gay.

      I think that is an excellent ad. Really compelling and effective. One of the best I’ve seen from them this season. Obama will struggle to find a good answer.

      If she does she’s apparently not telling.
