Just What The F*** IS Wrong With Obama?

Vice President Biden says he's comfortable with marriage equality...and the White House panics! You have to wonder just how stupid some people are in the White House...maybe even the president himself. This stale policy of Clintonesque triangulation when it comes to full equality for GLBT people is a losing strategy. The New York Times nailes it exactly:
by failing to go the next step and actually say that he supports the freedom to marry as Mr. Biden does and as polls show nearly a majority of Americans do, Mr. Obama risks dampening the enthusiasm of allies without gaining the support of equality’s opponents. It’s not an unfamiliar place for this president to be, unfortunately. It would be good for a broad range of Americans to see him articulate a clear position of principle and then defend it before the voting public.
