Sunday Tap

Earlier this week, President Obama had an interview on ABC News with Robin Roberts in which he affirmed he is personally in favor of same sex marriage. Previously, he had always been on the record for having opposition to the issue, but in the interview, he intimates that sitting around the dinner table with his wife, Michelle and his daughters, Sasha and Malia, his mind had evolved and his stance had changed. His daughters of the next generation don't see the big deal especially when their Girls Scout mom is a manager at the DC Home Depot and their choir leader is the Thursday night Drag Host at the Upside Down Stool. OK, kidding about those two things, but I'm sure it is true in some part of the country. But they get it, and the country needs to get it. Obama sees the need to not just allow visitation rights to change, but the country needs to change. Lest we forget that not 50 years ago, interracial marriage was illegal. The thought of it now is just crazy-talk. Earlier in the evening, before the interview was broadcast, Diane Sawyer reported that 61% of Americans under the age of 40 believe gay marriage is OK, yet 30 sates have banned gay marriage. Hm. Something is not right here. Get with it, America. Even the First Daughters get it. Mr President: you have my vote - again.
