I am much more upset and flustered that we are now allowing illegal aliens to assimilate into the U.S. At least most gays don't rob, shoot, steal, etc. from others; unlike illegals. But to really answer the question ... i don't think he's done a good job because he has been duplicitous. But the structure of the job position is not functional ... what other business requires the leader leave after 4 or 8 years, even if successful? How can huge plans be made and actuated in 4 or 8 years? And then to deal with another party (republican) that votes for the party, rather than what is right or best for the most people?
Not me. I think gay marriage is an essential step forward for the culture because until it is recognized, gays and lesbians are not equal in legislation and in personhood. I hope gay marriage becomes legal everywhere.
Anger, no. But it was the wrong thing to do. Even his reasons were motivated by politics. He don't care about the gays. He just wants their money and votes. The man will say or do just about anything to get reelected .

I'm not really angry...I actually support marriage of ANY type...:)...but if he's doing it just to get votes then that is wrong...I guess you can say. I'm kind of in-between and neutral on the whole subject.
Obama didn't "allow" gay marriage. Because we live in a democracy, our President cannot make the laws all by himself and however he pleases. Obama merely stated that his personal belief is one that is supportive of gay marriage. It is still illegal in the vast majority of our states. But good for you for thinking for yourself! That is a wonderful thing.
If only gay marriage was the biggest problem we have in America!!!!!! Quite honestly, I don't believe in gay marriage, but I think that each state should have the final say so as to what kind of civil unions will be legal and each church should have a say as to whether they will allow gays to marry in their church. The government has bigger fish to fry than gay marriage.
