Jay-Z speaks out in support of gay marriage

HollywoodNews.com: President Barack Obama recently spoke out in support of gay marriage and now Jay-Z is doing the same.
The rapper recently spoke with CNN about the issue and commented that he agrees with how President Obama handled the situation, states TMZ. “I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love,” Jay-Z commented.
“That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple,” Jay-Z added to his argument.
Do you agree?

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Jersey Shore’s’ Jenni “JWOWW” Farley isn’t too happy about Bristol Palin’s recent comments in regard to same-sex marriage, and she is not holding back.
JWOWW took to Twitter to respond to Bristol not supporting same-sex marriage as she reacted to President Obama’s recent comments, states UsMagazine.com. “Bristol should keep her uneducated, ignorant mouth shut. If you’re living in the past you wouldn’t have a kid without marriage. Hypocrite. It’s 2012!” JWOWW commented.
“My best friend will get married one day and not just have civil union with his man. Stop hating people,” JWOWW continued with her slam.
Bristol previously commented on Obama as she felt like he was making a poor decision to support same-sex marriage.

Bristol Palin slams President Obama for decision to support gay marriage

HollywoodNews.com: President Barack Obama recently spoke out in support of same-sex marriage, but Bristol Palin is apparently not approving of the way he made the decision.
Bristol took to her blog to comment on Obama claiming he is supportive of same-sex marriage after discussing the matter with his family, states UsMagazine.com. “People automatically assume that a Christian female President isn’t capable of making decisions without her spouse’s stamp of approval. So let me get this straight – it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?” Bristol commented.
Obama commented that in speaking with his daughters he listened to how they didn’t understand how their friend’s parents who were a same-sex couple were any different.
However, Bristol doesn’t think that should have an impact on his opinion: “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.”

Barack Obama documentary “The Road We’ve Traveled” is creepy propaganda

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: Maybe I’m just too cynical. But even while I agree with about 90% of the content of this 17-minute documentary, I can’t help but be creeped out by the context. With Tom Hanks’s narration, generically swelling music, and various stills of Barack Obama looking ‘presidential’ while various Americans smile or cheer approvingly, this is the kind of thing that bugs me on a number of levels. First of all, I cannot help but be repulsed by the idea that a president ordering a military execution, even one on Osama Bin Laden, is seen as a crowning example of ‘leadership’. Putting aside the issue of how much Obama’s foreign policy has resembled Dick Cheney on steroids (Obama doesn’t torture, but he will hold you in indefinite detention and/or order your due process-free execution while randomly bombing the crap out of civilians with unmanned drones), there is something deeply wrong with a nation that puts the ability to order the killing of another person, even a sworn enemy under just cause, as paramount example of ‘leadership’. Aaron Sorkin of course rebutted the idea in both several episodes of The West Wing and during a key first-act juncture in The American President, where Michael Douglas explains in detail why ordering military action that will take human lives is perhaps ‘the least presidential thing I do’. No, President Barack Obama never donned a flight suit and gave a presidential address from an aircraft carrier, but the idea that the (perhaps lawful/justified) killing of another person should be among the crowning accomplishments of any person, let alone a leader, is distasteful. It was distasteful when Bush played cowboy while other people’s sons and daughters bled out in the Middle East, and its only a little less distasteful when Obama claims this single military action as a shining example of ‘leadership’.

Aside from that personal issue, the documentary frankly represents a testament to the dumbing-down of our political culture. This is not a straight-faced, fact-driven information piece designed to explain in any detail the various accomplishments (quite large in number, frankly) of Barack Obama’s first term. No, this would-be viral video is clearly intended to make we voters warm and fuzzy about the current Commander-In-Chief. As such, there is little context, little insight, and no real worth as a factual document of the various achievements and [...]
