Yesterday was a big day. Prop 8 was ruled unconstitutional and nearly everyone was talking about it – almost everyone that is. LGBT advocacy organizations sang the praises of the 9th Circuit Court while anti-gay groups and some Republican presidential candidates decried the ruling as judicial overreach. But what did our so-called “fierce advocate” have to say about it? – Nothing much at all. Obama is still “evolving” on the issue and seems quite content to remain far removed from the fray.
This cowardice should come as no surprise. This is the same man who ignored the entire Prop 8 protest movement that spread across the country shortly after the election. It’s the same man who refused to even file an amicus brief in support of the case against Prop 8; the same man who spent nearly the first two years of his presidency DEFENDING the DOMA policy (by equating gay marriages to incest). It’s the same TIRED PATHETIC BULLSHIT that we always get from this farce of a “fierce advocate.”
