It is sad to watch everyone jump for joy over the Presiden't's eventual realization that gay couples should have the same rights as everyone else. He didn't take this stance until now. Meanwhile the dark lord, the arch criminal Dick Cheney did 4 years ago. Politics in this country is nothing more than team fandom. Jump for joy, but don't make this into something it is not. The President is a political opportunist and you have been played. Yeah yeah yeah he's got my vote. But don't lie to yourself. Obama is four years behind Cheney on this issue. Explain that.

25% on taxes.
20% on health coverage.
