The timing of this announcement regarding the president's views on gay marriage caught me by surprise a bit.
However, it was a happy surprise. To hear the president of the US finally say something so simple and logical and fair. How remarkably candid and unusual! As most Americans support the rights of LGBT to marry, it was not sticking his neck out as far as some people have been implying. It is not like he is stating he supports legalizing medical POT! Now that would be just too much fairness, too just and simplistically logical. Too much truth for the American public. We don't want to confuse them!
