Saying nothing but his personal belief, prior to the NC vote, and then announcing his support the day after the NC vote was the best way to use the circumstances for his own benefit. He will not only get much of his alienated base to take a second look at his accomplishments,he prevented the Republicans from claiming the vote was vote against Obama. We forget that he is a Chicago politician. That gives me great encouragement, considering the current non-position of the left. We need SMART tactics and I think we have the right leader with the right tactics for our current difficulties. PROGRESSIVE AMERICA THE TIME TO ARISE HAS ARRIVED. VOTE!

He will never get the votes of the religious right anyway, but it will help with those who actually think.

Obama supports gay marriage?! So what.

I mean, really, and what is he going to do about it? Let excuses surround his failure to do anythingt?!

Not impressed. It is just a campaign marketing ploy.

How can it alienate Independents when nearly 60% of Independents favor marriage equality?

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
