-Perry v. Schwarzenegger attorney David Boies from Maureen Dowd's latest column, commenting on President Obama's lagging behind Ted Olson on the issue of marriage equality

Amen. Just don't forget constitutional law professor Barack Obama, Mr. Boies. In terms of falling short, the president's marriage stance would seem to be letting down that earlier bio line even more than his current one!

The whole thing reminds us of another timely quote:

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
-Martin Luther King Jr.

And right now it's deafening, Mr. President. What the hell?

Your thoughts

"Obama sees himself as such a huge change that he can be cautious about other societal changes. But what he doesn’t realize is that legalizing gay marriage is like electing a black president. Before you do it, it seems inconceivable. Once it’s done, you can’t remember what all the fuss was about."

Also from Maureen's OpEd... Maybe our "friend" is listening!!
