Obama's same sex support brings in the campaign cash

It's been a bonanza money week for the Obama campaign. A Democratic source tells CNN the campaign raised $2 million dollars in donations in the 24 hours following the President's announcement he personally support's same-sex marriage.

On Friday, the president left on a campaign swing to Seattle and Los Angeles to pick up even more donations. The president dropped into Seattle where he collected roughly $3 million at two events. But the big haul came at the star-studded George Clooney blockbuster, where a Democratic official tells CNN, the reelection effort brought in $15 million.

      The whole line that marriage existed before governments is utter bullshitt. You know what marriage was then, it was a contract between a man and the woman's father.It used to be about owning a woman and joining families together for power and property.Why do you care if somebody wants to marry who they love?" Same s ex marriage should be legal. The fact that it's illegal is embarrassing

      If you're such a fan of Obama, buy his comedy album when it comes out, or watch him on late night ... but, don't gamble the future of America, by betting our survival on this loser. Thanks to Obama, over 5 trillion has been squandered in just 3 1/2 years ... our credit score has been downgraded ... our debt has just exceeded our GDP ... and, Obama wants to double down on his pathetic failed policies. Unlike you, I love America more than Obama.

Just look at the legislation put forward by the Repubs in the states and in the HOUSW. . Take, take, take form the middle class and the poor and give to the very rich. JUST read the ryan budget.

      • jean2009

        Sorry Steveo he was a liberal and for his day political.
        "The execution of John the Baptist is likely to have had a profound effect on Jesus. God's non-intervention might have caused Jesus to modify the apocalyptic vision of John the Baptist–which was probably a product of the perceived hopelessness of the peasants' plight–to one that emphasized change in the structure of political and religious institutions. The teachings of Jesus, who began his ministry around 28 or 29 C.E., describe an ideal world, a world that might exist if God–and not Caesar or the high priests–had his way. Jesus spoke primarily of the need to change the here and now, and less of need to ready oneself for the arrival of an avenging God. Needless to say, a religious program of the sort presented by Jesus would likely be seen as threatening by powerful beneficiaries of the status quo, from Roman leaders to Temple officials. "

        Sorry Jean! He challenged the teachers of the Law (the religious) and NOT the poltical! Plenty of scripture to back that up! He did not challenge the Roman government, that is why Pilate could find anything to charge Jesus with! He threatened the religious establishment! For that reason the Jewish leadership reviled Him! The were the ones who brought Him before the Romans authorities. One would figure if Jesus was a threat to Rome, they would have gotten Him without the help of the Jews! Back then Poltical power belonged to Rome and not the Jews as the Romans occupied Israel!

      • Steveo

        @jean, This is from the info you provided, Here are a few highlights and my comments.

        1. A formal decision to arrest Jesus had in fact been made several months earlier. The Jewish religious officials were afraid that if Jesus were to continue performing his signs, he would win over the people and the Romans would come in and destroy the Temple and nation.

        It appears the JEWS were politically afraid and NOT Jesus!

        2. There were political reasons for dealing with Jesus. There had been a dozen uprisings in Palestine in the previous 100 years, most of them subdued by Roman force. Another Messianic rebellion under Jesus would only shatter the precarious balance of authority, break Rome's patience, and might lead to direct occupation by Roman legions.

        Again, the Jewish leadership was politically concerned, NOT Jesus!

        I read this article Jean and everywhere politics was concerned, it was in reference to the Jews who were worried about the Romans!

        The article did say how Jesus bested the Pharisees in debate. Who were the Pharisees? The religious leaders! Jesus challenged the religious and not the political!

        May 14, 2012 at 10:05 pm |
      • Steveo

        @Jean,

        Here's the Major issue with James Sill who in the article said: Hebrew teachings do not specify that the Messiah would be born of a virgin,

        Really?? Read this:

        Isaiah 7:14 NKJV
        Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

        If Sill cannot get the virgin birth right which is critical to Christianity, what else is he getting wrong???

    All the gays sent their money to Obama for him trying to save them money on their tax return. All they want is to be able to check "Married filing jointly" so they can get the savings. They don't actually care about being married! Of course if the Bush tax cuts aren't extended it would probably be better that they file seperately to avoid the marriage penalty that the Bush tax cuts eliminated. Marriage should not be a government issue anyway. It is a religious issue! And by the way, according to the Holy scripture, marriage is between a man and a woman!

    Okay, gay marraige passes then it is not valid from one week or month to the next. Then if you listen close enough all you heard Obama say was that he feels they should have the same rights. He did not say he would pass gay marraige and he left it up to the states..... Double talk and all that gay people do is pour money and hopes and dreams in to silly political idiots that have not put it into law. You are being used again and if you were smart you would understand that someone is keeping count.... The economy is a problem no matter if you are gay or straight and the current leadership is has done nothing except tell us that we have to pass bills before we can see what is in it.... Give it a rest people, your rights as a human being to be treated equal in the eyes of all regarding benefits is a human right and not a gender right for either side. To all my sisters out their read up on Sharia Law because that is what is coming and everything you post on the web is subject to review, arrest and whatever this current administration passes through without all of us as human being pay attention to........ Wake Up America it is not about division, it is about our future and if we do not get this economy back in check we will all be broke.....

    Billy and Franklin Graham have changed the world with their testimony and individual efforts and so it grieves me that these representatives of a religious tax exempt organization involved themselves in a political foray. Effecting and promoting the passage of any law by a religious organization in the USA is unconstitutional by the first constitutional amendment in the “Bill Of Rights” and rightly should be so.

    Three points: 1.) It doesn't matter what the Christian Conservatives say about the scriptures and legislation because the highest law in the United States, the Constitution, has a non-establishment clause which dictates that the country will never declare any preference of religion or official national religion. 2.) Same-Sex marriage bans are not only against everything that the United States stands for, but are thoroughly unconstitutional under the 14th amendment which gives equal protection under the law for all citizens. That is not even to mention the equal faith and credit clause which would dictate that if a married gay couple were to move from Massechusetts to, say, South Carolina, the South Carolina government would be forced to acknowledge the marriage as legal. 3.) The divorce rate in the United States is around 50% which, to me, says that straight couples have already destroyed marriage without gay people being allowed to marry in the majority of states. It's not like they can't love each other.

      I thought as long as we're dregidng up the past, might as well go all in. So McCain's wife was a drug addict, so was our current President. In the next six months we're going to hear about every single mistake Obama, Clinton and McCain have made in their lives, and most voters will probably base their vote on those mistakes (because they'll get so much press) without knowing where the candidates stand on almost every issue.

    Did you know, in 2009 Union Pensions were seriously underfunded. Less than 62% funded where 65% is considered to be critically underfunded.

    Did you know in 2008 Unions borrowed over $380 million dollars from their pension funds to elect Obama.

    Did you know a large part of the stimulus bill (your money) went to fund Union Pensions.

    Did you know the Citizens United case now allows Unions to spend unlimited money on campaign financing.

    Did you know Unions are expected to spend over $400 million on Obama's re-election, from your money and given to the Unions under the Stimulus Bill.

    Its always about the money and nothing else.

    May God have mercy on obama.he is a hater of Gods holy word. he is not a leader.he is sending millions of people to hell by supporting same sex marriage.wouldn't want to be in his shoes when he stands before God.

    so now the cash is coming out of the closet. obama is the biggest suckup in the history of American presidents. what a weakling.

    At least the president takes a risk and tells the truth about his own position.The other guy keeps his money in foreign countries and can't remember attacking a guy in high school.What kind of American keeps all his money overseas.And how can anyone with half a brain forget he attacked someone no matter how long ago.You have to be a nitwit or a liar to say you can't remember such an incident.Add to that Romney said he doesn't care about the poor or middleclass,that's enough for me.Not to mention he's a little negligent with dogs.

    How may of Clooney's guests have Cayman accounts, Swiss accounts and hidden assets? Doesn't seem the President has any qualms about dipping into those to fund his reelection.

    If you don't think that this whole gay marriage thing is a smokescreen by the Obama campaign to keep America's mind off of the screwed-up economy as we approach the election, then you're not paying attention. This is important (and should be addressed on a state by state basis), but it's definitely NOT the most important issue facing the survival of our country right now.

    I just wonder how long obama will be able to create these little media blasts to redirect Americans attention from the real issues...his abject failure as a president...and the fact that Mitt is leading him in the polls and he just got started..... this gay marriage thing was just stupid...shows just how incompetent obama really is...and unpresidental.

    OMG!!...Ooooops!! Please forgive me for that last non-sensical post that I tried to write at 1:30 am on May 14, 2012. I must have fallen to sleep, mistakenly deleted som of the sentences and blatantly misspelled words, even Romney's name!! LOL! Rumny isn't supposed to be on the same line with 'We love you'; something was deleted, but I must have tried to wake up and entered it anyway!! 'fooese'?? LOL!! I just don't know, but sorry folks!!
