GAY MARRIAGE: Obama Says DOMA Will Be Dead Soon, Supreme Court Too Scary to Initiate Federal Legislation

The president, for some reason, is playing the okie doke when it comes to flat out granting same sex couples the right to be married. In a recent interview with MTV news President Barack Obama says the Defense of Marriage Act will soon enough be ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. But … umm … yeah, there won’t be any federal legislation for same sex marriage anywhere in the near future:

Historically, marriages have been defined at the state level. And there’s a conversation going on… there’s some states that are still having the debate. And I think for us to try to legislate federally into this is probably the wrong way to go,

The courts are going to be examining these issues. I’ve stood up and said I’m opposed to the so-called Defense of Marriage Act… I’ve said that’s wrong. There are a couple of cases that are working their way through the courts, and my expectation is that Defense of Marriage Act will be overturned. But, ultimately, I believe that if we have that conversation at the state level, the evolution that’s taking place in this country will get us to a place where we are going to be recognizing everybody fairly.

I’m very proud of that fact that as president I’ve got a track record of not just talking the talk on this, but walking the walk: ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, making sure that federal employees are treated equally when it comes to their partners and I’m going to keep pushing as hard as I can.

I guess he wants everything to have due process but I don’t care about that! I want equality now dammit!
