"A document has emerged suggesting that Obama had taken more public, liberal stands in the past than had been revealed . . . In a 1996 questionnaire . . . Obama came out clearly in favor of same-sex marriage, which he has opposed on the public record throughout his short career in national politics. “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages,and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages,” Obama wrote in the typed, signed, statement. . . . On another questionnaire the same year, Obama said he would support a resolution in support of same-sex marriage. . . . Obama now says he opposes same-sex marriage . . ."
Wouldn't it be nice if the press had done their job, treated Obama like any other candidate, and researched / verified his promises and record during primary season, not two months after the election.
