Newsweek names OBAMA: THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT

Newsweek names OBAMA: THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT

By Meghan Keneally

MAIL ON LINE, U.K. 5/13/2012

Newsweek has released the cover of their next issue, on the  cover of which they depict President Obama with a rainbow halo and the title of 'The First Gay President'.

The news-magazine, which hits stands Monday, is using the  shock factor of labeling the straight, married, father-of-two President to draw  attention to itself.

Controversial: Newsweek released their cover early, likely hoping to drum up attention for their next issue and their same-**noallow** marriage coverage

The article accompanying the cover was written by the news  magazine's regular blogger, Andrew Sullivan, who is an openly gay self-titled  conservative political pundit.

'When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an  aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work,' Mr  Sullivan said in a statement about the article.

'He had to discover his black identity and then  reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual  identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family,' he  wrote, describing the similarities between Mr Obama and  the gay community.

 This was, however, the first time that a sitting President had done so, and the magazine asserts that such a move was a calculated one that had been thoroughly planned.

'It’s easy to write off President Obama’s announcement of his  support for gay marriage as a political ploy during an election year. But don’t  believe the cynics,' representatives from the news magazine told Politico in a statement about the article.

President Obama's announcement came several days after Vice  President Joe Biden said that he was 'absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and men and women marrying are entitled  to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil  liberties.'

On the day of the President's interview, Mr  Biden is said to have had a private meeting in the Oval Office where in he  apologized for his overstep.

Republicans, the vast majority of whom are against gay  marriage, said that Mr Obama simply made his historic announcement in an effort  to gain support among liberal voters in the lead up to the general election.

'While President Obama has played politics on this issue, the  Republican Party and our presumptive nominee Mitt Romney have been clear,' Republican national committee chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.

'We support maintaining marriage between one man and one woman  and would oppose any attempts to change that.

Newsweek Calls Obama the First Gay  President

By Katie Pavlich

5/14/2012

 

It seems as if Newsweek may have jumped the shark with its  latest cover implying President Obama isn't just a supporter of gay marriage,  but that he is actually gay himself.

The news-magazine, which hits stands today, is using the shock  factor of labeling the straight, married, father-of-two President to draw  attention to itself.

 



Last week, Obama touted his pro-gay marriage stance on his  Twitter page and on his campaign website.

 

And of course, the cover article is written by Andrew  Sullivan, the same writer who heavily questioned whether Trig Palin was  really Sarah Palin's son.

President Obama is taking full advantage of his "coming out"  moment on gay marraige and will head to a swanky NYC fundraisier with gay singer Ricky Martin today.

Obama is heading to the Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea for a  $5,000-a-ticket fundraiser co-hosted by the LGBT Leadership Council and openly  gay singer Ricky Martin. 

Ricky Martin is also an admirer and fan of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez...
