Gay Marriage - Hmmm. Obama Could Have Said That Better

While I agree that there are bigger things than gay marriage (passing non-descrimination, etc), Obama could have been a little better when speaking...
The reason that we have to talk about and deal with these divisions is because we get distracted every political season and election cycle by these divisions. And then we end up ignoring these big problems. Think about what these last few election cycles have been about. We argue about immigration, but we don't try to solve the immigration problem. It's an argument that is all about people's passions instead of trying to figure it out. We argue about gay marriage. In the meantime the planet is...potentially being destroyed. We've got a war that is bankrupting us. And we're going to argue about gay marriage? (applause) I mean, that...doesn't make any sense.

I watched Obama's speech & found it very disturbing. Gay marriage is not one of his issues & why should it be he's legally marriage with all the rights & protection for his family that marriage brings. FYI, Hillary Clinton was key in passing Gay Marriage in Massachusetts by having her campaign manager, Terry McAuliffe, quietly calling legislators to sway their votes. Obama did nothing....
