Now don't get me wrong - I agree with what you wrote, and I understand what your arguments are. What I'm curious about is - why oh WHY are you guys surprised?
Obama said in as many words that he disapproved of gay marriage - indeed, of gays in general. Granted, he was very VERY careful how he said it, but the basic message was STILL crystal clear - that as a President, he'd do NOTHING to interfere with states' gay issues because he as a person agreed with homophobes (although he said it was because he felt it wasn't a federal issue, he did nothing to hide his personal bias). Now that he's in place, he's upholding those views he expressed while still a candidate - and you guys are surprised... Why?
Again, I agree with you. He fucked up - big time. And I admire you for writing this letter. But I'm still curious why you folks overseas are surprised. Did they censor those interviews he gave on the issue back in the US?
