“Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”
Yeah, that was President Barack Obama this week, the first president ever to say the word gay out loud in public, and he said it in his inaugural address number two. A big deal speech, and obvious leadership on gay rights, even if it took him a while to evolve enough to get there.
But where does that leave Chris Christie, who gets plenty of mileage among national (and NJ) right-wingers accusing Obama of failure to lead. Where does that leave Chris Christie now in a state where the majority of us back marriage equality? Rob outlines Christie’s ME problem here. It’s a good read.
