NYT on Obama’s evolving, and devolving, views on gay marriage, and a new excuse from the White House

The latest explanation from the White House, for why President Obama filed out not one, but two, questionnaires in 1996 claiming he would support same-sex marriage, is that the future President, and constitutional scholar, didn’t understand the difference between “civil unions” and “marriage” when he repeatedly stated that he was in favor of legal same-sex marriages.

I hope this gives folks some sense of why many in the gay community have become so frustrated with the President.  There’s a lack of seriousness in the way he treats our community far too often.  It’s almost as if he thinks we don’t deserve a real, adult answer.
