Betty White Endorses President Obama

14 May

Cheers for Betty White!

If you have ever read TSM you know how much I love Betty White.  From her role as the delicious Sue Ann Nivens on the Mary Tyler Moore Show to her current role as Elka Ostrovsky on Hot in Cleveland, Betty has won the hearts of many.  I have also loved her for supporting marriage equality–a matter of civil rights.

While Betty White typically steers clear of politics, yesterday she publicly endorsed President Obama, saying: how she “very, very much favors” President Barack Obama in this election.  White went on to say how much she appreciates “how he represents us.”   While I try not to get caught up in the lives of celebritiess, I so appreciate and respect the 90 year old Betty White for supporting a President who has a wonderful reputation globally and has the integrity to support and push forward civil rights; these qualities were severely lacking in W.  In fact, W managed to work hard against civil rights and made the US look like global bullies–what does it say that Romney has said he is even more conservative than W? Well done, Betty White!

    I think I recently signed a petition going around (as a joke of course, or sort of a joke!) supporting Betty White for President! I love that old gal!

    Regarding Ms. White, indeed she should be celebrated.

    And Romney’s position regarding marriage equality is factually more hostile than W.’s. The 43rd President favored civil unions or domestic partnerships for same sex couples, which Romney the panderer has now decided is dangerously generous to gay and lesbian couples.

    The perils of granting any approximation of marriage-like rights to same sex couples, even if the word itself is denied them, is too great to risk in Romney-land–yet another example of how the Republican Party is doubling-down on extremist positions.

      I suspect poor, old, sad, old Romney is fearful that Robert and I are at war and will destroy his marriage. We now have matching rainbow fatigues.

        Please tell me you really have rainbow fatigues, and where I can get some as too freak out my dad.
