Speaking for myself, I'm annoyed, but its not as much at the president himself as the situation. I understand the political realities of him saying something like this.....and I'm also of the opinion that supporting gay marriage should be basic human decency, not a political victory, a major commitment, or something I should feel grateful to Obama for.
So yeah, I'll cop to being a Gloomy Bear or whatever the hell you want to call it. Woohoo, our president is on board with my basic civil rights. And also has no problem using that fact as political capital with the left. Or feel any need to address the REAL problem in all this, ie - the rights of a minority should not be a matter of popular vote.
Hell, I'll even admit to being childishly peeved that something that's all about our civil rights has been turned into 'omg Obama's so progressive, yay, everything's better!'.
Cuz, you know, its not. What happened yesterday still sucks. Nothing's actually changed today. And someone saying 'I support gay marriage'....but only now that I've carefully weighed my options and feel that its safe enough to stick my head out there now....yeah, no. My hero. Swoon.
