    TRENDING: 10-year-old with same-sex parents finds pen pal in President Obama – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    When Sophia Bailey-Klugh, a 10-year-old, invited President Barack Obama to dinner, she didn't get a response.

    So when he replied to her second letter–this one thanking him for his position on same-sex marriage–the girl with two fathers was really surprised.

    One of Sophia's fathers, Jonathan Bailey, posted the letter to Facebook on October 28, saying Sophia penned the piece "unprompted" and it made her two fathers "so unbelievably proud."

    Did anybody tell the kid he swtiched his views on same sex marriage just to get some more votes, they should also tell the kid how he felt when he was sitting in Reverend Wrights Church listening to Anti America Racist shlt mixed in with a little "Jesus Stuff"

    That's nice and all but are we saying that Obama is the first president to write back to a little kid? Really?

    He wrote back to a kid and validate her views on same sex parents; I think that's a first.

    I think the term is that Obama "evolved" on same-sex marriage. Good for him.

    Even bitter righties -- well, the ones that aren't homophobes -- have to admit, it's better than "devolving" on the issue (as our recent pubbie candidate did.)

    Patters, that was touching. Thanks.

    I'm fine with all this....but if technology ever allows men to carry babies, I hope it's not allowed....the last thing we need to see is a man with a preggie belly and swelling boobs....yuk!:eek:

    Wait, I thought changing positions was "flip-flopping". Such behavior thus making the flopper unfit for high office...well, at least until November 6th.

    I thought we already knew that Obama supported same-sex marriage? He was against it before he was for it, but let's not dwell on the past.

    I guess I am not seeing anything new. Is it that same-sex parenthood is being referenced here, not just same-sex marriage?

    Yeahhhh yanno, I think that's a matter of degree rather than kind, B5.

    I also think the degree to which Obama flip-flopped (2 positions on gay marriage over a career) is way lower than the degree to which Rmoney did -- with him it was every issue, whenever it seemed important.

    One of his main stump points was to repeal essentially his own health care plan, for crissakes.

    Hell, I can even believe a guy did evolve, when we're talking about one social issue over a long period.

    Not so much when you're trying to simultaneously bad down problems with your stances on birth control, abortion, national security, immigration, health care, you name it.

    Of course, had Mitt been just one of those people who's always wrong about everything, I wouldn't be much more likely to vote for him than the version that's wrong about things about half the time, but all the time if you wait a week.

    A conservative, a liberal, and a moderate walk into a bar. Bartender says "Hey Mitt!"

    sense of humor alert.................

    It all makes sense now.

    Gay marriage and marijuana being legalized on the same day.

    Leviticus 20:13 – “if a man lays with another man, he should be stoned.”




    We’ve been interpreting it wrong all these years! :D

    Also are we saying conservative candidates are mostly not nice ... :bricks:

    Also Laura and Barbara Bush were pro gay marriage and their husbands were neanderthal on it.
