Obama administration appeals gay marriage rulling adult content

The Obama administration filed a notice of appeal with the US District court for the Distric of Massachusetts in support of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act that banned gay marriage, even though Obama had previously opposed the law.

Is this a setback to gay marriage?

  • If Obama going back on this issue is enough for liberals and those who voted for him in 2008 to turn their backs on him and NOT vote for in 2012, then I wholeheartedly support your decisions!! (Vote ups for all!!) LOL :o)

    FWIW...As a conservative, I DON'T have a problem with gay marriage.

  • I'm in shock. LOL honestly. I didn't even vote for the guy, but I've given him my full support as our President. I still can't figure out half of the moves he makes though. They make little to no sense to me.

  • Why would he do that? To gain votes from the conservatives? If he follows through with it I will not vote for him again.

  • He has turned his back on every promise he made gays and lesbians. I really hope he only serves 1 term and someone else who wants to represent ALL the people of the US serves next. Disgusting!
