    Why would I have to be gay to support gay marriage? Your monicer is 'buck'. Where I live a buck is somebody who is fairly stupid. Do you also support Creationism? That's fairly stupid too.

    Or do you think maybe he's just trying to appeal to his base that has been critcizing him on this type of subject for a while now?
    Why would he have to appeal to his base? Obama's done more for gay rights than most Republican presidents in the last 30 years.

    You obviously do not understand how the department of justice works. It has nothing to do with Eric Holder's views. Obama has come to the realization that the DOMA was based on insupportable views of individual morality and can't withstand Constitutional muster. Something than many of us have been saying for years.

    America doesn't always get it right at first, but ultimately generally comes around once educated.

    not to obama's doj

    The Administration argued that the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the U.S. Constitution does not bar states from denying out-of-state gay marriages, and they cited prior cases of out-of-state marriages that were between (a) an uncle and niece, (b) a 16-year-old and adult and (c) first cousins. Comparing same-sex marriage with incest and pedophilia is what one would expect from a Republican Administration, and for a court to agree with such reasoning is unhelpful.

    Gotcha. So, your original post that this decision would only appeal to "1.5% of the pop" was fairly silly, no?


    Why would he have to appeal to his base? Obama's done more for gay rights than most Republican presidents in the last 30 years.
    Dunno. Ask his base which has been very vocal in their criticsm of what hes done or not done.

    so on what did you base your 1.5%? since the 2000 census estimated that ~ 10% of the US population was gay. what happened? did 8.5% of the gays turn straight or die? or, as usual, are you just talking out your ass without a clue as to what you are saying?
