"This memo from the Justice Department is more Bush than Bush. It takes the only minority group left in America that national politicians can publicly discriminate against and still see their numbers go up in the polls and it reinforces the horrible stereotypes about our friends and neighbors."In comparison to the marshmallow-spined Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger decided not to support Prop 8 in court. In other words, the Gubenator, whatever his personal or even political beliefs, recognizes that Prop 8 is probably unconstitutional. Prop 8 overturned same-sex marriage in California, but also established a dangerous precedent in which a majority of voters can decide to deny rights to a minority. Whatever I may think of the Gubenator's politics or films, he at least seems to have some backbone. Hopefully Obama can recognize that leadership cannot happen by compromising until there's no there there. The President must actually push this country in a direction, not get stuck in the middle with the rest of the crowd. Otherwise, those with strong principals, including the likes of Schwarzeneggar, will push this country in the wrong direction on everything from gay rights to endless war to the distribution of wealth. Perhaps Obama can get a spine transplant- terminator steel instead of gooey marshmallow?
