Video: Oh look, the inevitable reminder that Pres. Obama sees us as separate, unequal

by Jeremy Hooper
"The president does oppose same-sex marriage, but he supports equality for gay and lesbian couples, and benefits and other issues, and that has been effectuated in federal agencies under his control," Axelrod said on MSNBC.
...
"The president opposed Proposition 8 at the time — he felt it was divisive and mean spirited," he said, adding that Obama believes that governing marriage is "an issue for the states."

It gets more insulting with every victory.

What's it going to take, Mr. President? More photos of our loving families? More fully highlighting the inequalities of civil unions? A promise that you'll get a pass at any same-sex weddings that choose to feature a chicken dance? We're open to suggestions.

**Oh, and by the way: To all of those who keep saying "that's his position, he made it clear form the beginning" (something I'm reading in email from even prominent activists: Where is the point in that "explanation"? Yes, he and all of the other Democrats stopped short of full equality in '08. Just like most of us in the LGBT commentariat pressed them all to go further, then, now, and beforehand! But in the years since, many prominent Dems have come around. So can the highest-ranking one.

The questions: What's it going to take to show constitutional law scholar Barack Obama what should be so obvious?!? What can we do to more fully make our case?! And why should we sit back and accept that on this issue, the 'rack is immovable?
