The President’s announcement today shows how out of touch he is with the values of American families. The President continues to practice the politics of division and diversion. He’s tried to divide the country over gender, education, class, and now he’s attempting to divide families all as a diversion to his failed economic policies that have affected all Americans.
…I was proud to introduce the first Constitutional amendment proposal in Minnesota when I served as a Minnesota state senator. I’m pleased that this November Minnesotans will have an opportunity to vote to defend traditional marriage. I will continue to protect traditional marriage, despite our president’s decision to thumb his nose at the traditional institution of marriage.
Michele Bachmann, May 9, 2012
Bachmann’s response to President Obama announcing his support for gay marriage.
Take 2 minutes to watch this video of Michele Bachmann being put on the spot by a teen who leads the GSA (or Gay-Straight Alliance to help folks like Michele who don’t know what that is) at their local highschool. This courageous teen ask
Teen: Why can’t same-sex couples get married?
Michele: Well they can get married. But they abide by the same law as everyone else. They can marry a man if they’re a woman or they can marry a woman if they’re a man.
Teen: Why can’t a man marry a man?
Michele: Because that’s not the law of the land.
Truly, my favorite part of the video is when Michele argues that same-sex couples can get married, it’s just they have to get married to the opposite sex. Not sure if she gets this whole concept yet… ;)
Aww, Kristin Chenoweth on Michele Bachmann, Christianity and gay marriage.
A last place finish in the Iowa caucuses will mark Michele Bachmann’s last stand as a presidential candidate.
Bachmann, who has been a vocal supporter of the Minnesota Marriage Amendment, announced that she would “stand aside” in the 2012 run for the GOP nomination.
And we all let out a collective sigh of relief.

Mitt Romney has defended gay marriage and even signed marriage licenses for same sex couples and Ron Paul doesn’t believe the government should protect the institution of marriage… I have a record of defending life, marriage and the family and I’ll protect them as president of the United States.
