    (NEW YORK) — President Obama for the first time adopted the language of same-sex marriage advocates Monday, explicitly telling a crowd of LGBT and Latino donors in New York City that his support for “marriage equality” is a reason he deserves a second term. “The announcement I made last week about my views on marriage equality — on principle, the basic idea that I want everybody treated fairly in this country.
