‘Gay couples should be able to get married,’ says that nice Obama man

So, there you have it. Obama has said it. And said it very cleverly, mentioning same-sex friends, how his kids thought gay relationships were no big deal and how American servicemen and women should have the same rights as everyone else. Brave and laudable and we love him for it. And how nice to hear a politician just talking like a real person. Hats off!

Here’s what he said, in case you can’t be bothered to watch the video:

‘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.’
