President Obama is an anti-gay rights President. I know that he threw a sop to the gay rights community by "supporting" the repeal of don't ask, don't tell. However, due to his hardcore (Christian) religious beliefs, he stand firm against gay marriage and other fundamental rights.
For some reason gays supported his run in 2008, even as John McCain made noises that he might be willing to back gay marriage, even if only in the states. McCain's daughter openly supports gay rights-- just as Obama openly opposes them.
And now the Obama Administration broke up a protest in front of the White House by pro-gay protesters, hiding it from reporters (almost). The Obama Admin and Democrats are expecting gays and their supporters to fall into line because they should feel like they have no other options.
That being said, an increasing amount of Republicans, conservative Republicans are backing gay marriage. These include none other than Dick Cheney and former Solicitor General Ted Olson. If Dick Cheney, the guy who was considered the worst part of the Bush Admin by leftists, supports gay rights, what's Obama's excuse?
