Obama extolls gay rights, stay neutral on gay marriage

Even as members of the crowd shouted "marriage!" during the New York City fundraiser, the president declined to take a position on a marriage bill being debated by the New York state legislature.

After last week's GOP debate it would be safe to assume that President Obama pretty much has the 2012 gay vote all sewn up.

Five of the seven GOP candidates said they would go so far as to support some form of anti-gay discrimination written directly into the Constitution, including leading candidate Mitt Romney.

Obama is under increased scrutiny about his "evolving" views on gay rights in the wake of the battle for gay marriage in New York. Obama will be in the state on Thursday to attend a high-priced fundraiser with gay donors.
In his "Keeping Them Honest" segment, Cooper said, "New questions are being raised about what the president actually believes about gay marriage and whether his public opposition to it is real or just political posturing."
