White House Will Not Support SOPA
Well that just confirms it, they will back SOPA.

"Maybe this was all a set up"
Yes, and maybe I'm a three legged baby from mars. No, there was enough lobbying, corporate backing, and hidden deals in this whole SOPA thing that made it legit enough in my eyes. SOPA was and is still a real threat even if the White House doesn't support it. Yes, the president has to sign, but I've heard of signing statements and other things that could make the White Houses' disfavor irrelevant.
God forbid you agree with Obama on something. God forbid that Obama actually stands for something within your spectrum of belief. It must be a trick, an illusion of sorts.
Please, stop it ATS, stop it. You all know what I mean even if you pretend that you don't.

Maybe this was all a set-up, so Obama could shut it down to gain votes and confidence... Because internet is a common interest amongst ALL North Americans for sure.
How did the bill get this far along, knowing it would get shut down? Interesting... Maybe it wasn't "tight" enough yet and was just an introductory? In a few year, it will be tweak and re-announced?
