Voice: Obama, we love you!
President Obama (D): ....You know, last night, Governor Romney looked you right in the eye, looked me in the eye, tried to pretend that he never said, let Detroit go bankrupt.

Backers of Minnesota Marriage Amendment Use Controversial Parenting Study

Conducted by University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus, the National Family Structures Study has been used by opponents of same-sex marriage to suggest that the children of same-sex couples fare poorly on a number of issues including relationships, abuse, and poverty.
