Excuse me?!

http://www.10news.com/news/obama-to-urge-supreme-court-to-overturn-californias-gay-marriage-ban

Excuse me!? I fervently support gay marriage and in the case of CA's Prop 8, I've personally participated in attempts to kill it. But when it comes to Supreme Court cases - they are about objective Constitutionality and what the President t...hinks is completely irrelevant. Obama is trying to get a cheap pop out of this, but he actually threatens gay marriage with it - he is unpopular with moderates and his support will move them to oppose it. Stop pulling executive powers out of your ass and trying to usurp the Supreme Court's check on your authority, Mr. President - no one that believes in civil liberties will take you seriously even if you came out of the closet yourself tomorrow.
