Michelle Obama Doesn't Talk About Marriage Equality

Michelle Obama Not Talking About Gay M

Michelle Obama doesn't talk about marriage equality, at least publicly, it's been pointed out.

In fact, when asked for a statement directly, the response given was from her communications director, and that response was:

“Mrs. Obama has never made any public statements about same-sex marriage.”

Right, we get that. But why not? Why wouldn't someone in her position voice their opinion on something that seems to be weighing on a whole lot of minds right now? Is it because she disagrees with Barack? Or agrees whole-heartedly and doesn't want to upset anyone?

Anyone's guess is as good as another at this point, and it seems like former governor Jim McGreevey has the guess that it's probably Michelle who is pushing Barack to "evolve" on the issue:

“If he could only listen to Michelle more often,” McGreevey mused during an interview with Eliot Spitzer. McGreevey, who came out in 2004 when he resigned from office, spoke at length in the interview about how politicians tend to lag behind the public in supporting civil rights causes, including marriage equality.

But McGreevey has never discussed it with her, so, like we said, his guess is as good as anyone else's.

It'd be wonderful to hear from her, regardless of her stance. We'd like to think that she supports love, though, and those who want to be committed to each other under the vows of marriage!

Equality for all!

    It is common practice for First Ladies to keep mum on big issues when they disagree with their husbands. Laura Bush seemed to be for gay marriage but didn't say anything. Barbara Bush was pro-choice but wouldn't dare speak up while in office.

    It is proper and appropriate for First Ladies not to challenge their husbands. I support gay marriage in all 50 states but don't think that Michelle Obama has to advocate for it.

    Let me guess now you're going to label her as a "homophobe" and push your anti-woman agenda? LMAO, face it Mario, people like you are the reason why gays will never recieve equal rights.

  3. 3

    YOU, MARIO, DO.NOT.KNOW.WHAT.SHE.SUPPORTS. So, don't even guess. And Obama is 'NOT GOING TO EVOLVE' unless the polls show the election is in the bag. he does not speak until he looks at the polls, DON'T YOU GET IT BY NOW??????????? He(Obama) lets her talk about fat people and how this and that WILL KILL YOU, because it is a proven, time in and out. And she and a bunch of dieticians probably spent millions redoing that stupid food chart, NOW OVAL, instead of a triangle. But, do you ever hear a whisper about…….SMOKING … coming out of the white house????

  4. 4

    There are more pressing matters besides this right now. Such as, oh I don't know, the ECONOMY. Will job security be safe for next year? Will the housing market bottom out again? How much will food go up? Will gas go up as well? Things like this matter. Not little fairies running around worrying about getting married. Spare me the drama!

    Why drag Michelle into your gay marriage agenda. She doesn't answer to you or anybody else. She wasn't elected into office and her private thoughts are none of your business. As for Jim McGreevy he is a fucking tool. He can speculate all he wants but it's highly unlikely Michelle is going to share her innermost thoughts with that piece of shit.

    Re: TrannyTakesATumble – People like you are the reason there are so much hatred in this world.

    Equality for all.

    Oh here we go. You have your cheer leadering pom pom's going already.

    Do we really have to suffer through daily political comments from you? It will be non stop til Obama and his cronies force the country to vote for him again. UGH

    I pray this time the people take their heads out of the sand and not vote for him. Our country can't survive 4 more years of this idiot.

    I think the Obamas support gay marriage but they want to get re-elected next year before they officially say so, to secure four more years before they start dividing people over a big issue. I'd say lay off them for now and focus on their re-election and promote gay marriage in key states!

  9. 9

    She isn't a political leader, therefor her views on certain topics are no one else's business. Leave the woman alone.

    You are a dumb cun*t.

    The Obama's oppose gay marriage. It violates the muslim faith. That's why it will NEVER happen.

  14. 14

    When the fuck are people going to learn that the president is against gay marriage. He agrees that two men or women should be joined as a civil union. How the fuck do liberals not commonly know this.

  15. TCYB says – reply to this


    Re: Mad Dog – Thay have a right to their opinions. Who cares? Move on to important issues.

    B. Obama has stated from the get-go that he is against gay marriage. Amazing how a lot of gays who voted for him seem to have forgotten that! He's better than some right-wing douche bag, but not THAT much different in many cases. Re: BeautifulDisaster311 – And spare me the drama of a bunch of not-that-little breeders trying to blame their failed marriages on the 'gay agenda'.

  18. 18

    Re: Mad Dog – The Obama's are Christian..

    Re: etastic – Quite a bit of conjecture on your part. I guess they should be given a pass by Perez since they can't really express how they feel? No one gets a pass from Perez except a hot gay boy.

  20. 20

    If u didn't shove this issue down everyone's throat, maybe more people would embrace it!

  21. 21

    What? Youre not going to slam her? Just like you do with anyone else who doesnt stand on top of a box and mimic your politics????

  22. 22

    I thought obama was anti gay marraige until he realized he wasn't going to win that battle and wanted to look "cool"

  23. 23

    Maybe because there are other issues out there instead of just same sex marriage. Or maybe because it is not her place because she is only a first lady and not a political figure. I support gay marriage but she doesn't have to bring it up in every conversation in order to have her views known.
    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – Actually. You had no right to say anything to Tranny, if I understood the comment correctly. He/She is right. As long as you have homosexual people labeling every person under the sun a homoprobe or criticizing them for their opinion, then gay rights will forever be going 2 steps back. There are positive ways to get your point across and negative ways and labeling someone that shares a different view is definitely negative. At least that is what I got out of the comment. Perez pushes his "gay agenda" as people will say, and as much as I appreciate that it is his blog and it is his opinion, there is a line between expressing your views and throwing it in peoples faces.

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – Haha I am a gay boy and I'm just thinking logically! Perez is ALMOST always right… I just don't think the Obamas don't want to alienate their black voters right now. In California black voters went 7 to 3 in favor of Prop 8.

  25. 25

    Re: Mad Dog – Do you really think the Obamas are Muslims? Jesus Christ.

  26. 26

    Re: yeaman – There's no such thing as a "gay agenda" except the wish for equality and to be treated with respect. If anything it's the AMERICAN agenda. "There are other issues?" Then stop talking about it, asshole.

    Re: Canuckfuck – What the hell does that even mean you Canadian weirdo??

  28. 28

    BULLYING goes both ways! Leave her alone!

    Re: yeaman – Well, I was expressing my view on Tranny's comment.

    McGreevey!! ARe you fucking kidding me!!! He's the ultimate douche bag. You gays wan everything and everyone to support your quest to have sex in public toilets and in train stations!! You got Will and Grace, right? You have Ellen, yes?? Be thankful and shut the fuck up. Thank God Michelle Obama is staying outta this!!!!! We want a first lady whose focus is on important things!! People are out of work, we are at war and all you selfish GAYS can do is whine about marriage…meanwhile y'all cheat on each other all the time…you're all walking STDS. Jim McGREEVEy should be in Jail for what he did!!

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – You're clearly misguided, deluded, and obviously very, very angry.

  32. 32

    Like u suport 'love'! Ur all about hate, Pezzie!!

  33. 33

    assuming she has her husband's view and is against gay marriage
    what did Obama's former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. preach about gays–that will be their stand too I'm guessing, since they went to his church and were in agreement with him until politcally they felt that they had to distance themselves from him when some of his racist sermons became public and affected their poll numbers
    that may be where the truth lies

  34. 34

    Re: etastic – I put gay agenda in quotes because that is what other people call it.
    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – Then I have no idea why the fuck you said anything to him because he agreed with your opinion asshole.

  35. 35

    I think gay marriage should be legalized so we can all move on to more important issues.

  36. 36

    OMG ENOUGH WITH THE GAY POSTS ALREADY! This whole site is gay gay gay gaga gaga gaga gay gaga gay bieber anniston gaga gay gay gaga gaga= HOLY crap! Can you come up with something else to write about? HEAVEN FORBID the first lady not speak about gay issues everytime she has to speak. There are far more important things going on in the world then just marriage equality.. how about the fact that the united states school system is in the crapper- PE and Music programs and being cut from schools and teachers can't even find work as children are using out of date text books! Cmon perez open your eyes the world is much bigger then just your SMALL political platform.

    Re: yeaman – No sense attempting to argue with Glamor is Life… she is a young girl- not even out of high school who hardly knows a think about the world or the "gay agenda" to post a well thought out opinion. Don't argue with stupid it will just make you nuts LOl

    Re: MsJules – Exactly my thoughts!

  39. 39

    Re: etastic – How fucking retarded are you!! You support someone who you say isn't being honest so they can re-elected and you approve of that?!?!? Get used to saying 'President Romney” asshole because BARRY is a one termer!! AND enough with this Gay marriage shit!! Fuck, you gays are walking STDs!!

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – And you are just trash, oh no wait, I meant garbage.
    Re: yeaman – The I clearly misread, cut me some slack and stop attacking me. Besides, he did not agree with my opinion exactly, I don't agree with hate.
    Re: MsJules – I know nothing about Gay agenda, most of my friends are gay and I go to way pride every year because I'm bi.
    And if anyone is the stupid one it's you.
