    If Obama had a time machine, would he go back and make Biden STFU, or even decide to not come out about gay marriage himself? This could be the turning point of this campaign, where the moderates finally leave Team Obama for good. They have been growing tired of the radical social issues with race, gender, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc, etc. This may have broken the stone wide open.

    What does it say about the right wing when equal civil rights is considered "radical".

    I think this is absolutely fantastic. Comments by the Far Right, comments from people like you on message boards like this make it clear that there are still those willing and eager to relegate gay citizens to the Second-class Citizen catagory.

    He's basically called all your bluffs. And opened that can of nasty homophobia up so that Americans the used to think this was a non-issue can see all the ugliness out in the open.

    Good for him. :clap2:

    Obama had to throw the far left a bone. Yes, he regrets it already. See how many follow up comments Biden is allowed to make in the next couple of weeks.

    You didn't give us the option of "No, since the majority of Americans support it, it makes sense that the President would also".

    Here's the thing; it's not that we support gay marriage. Saying that someone supports gay marriage is like saying that everyone should marry a gay person. What we support is the right of a gay person to marry another gay person if that is their choice. And no, if certain churches do not support this, they should not and cannot be forced to marry gay couples.

    And thats why it was worded like that. 50%+ of people in over 50%+ of states rejected it. Most are opposed.
