2. Correct me if I'm wrong but... of the things I heard when the McDonald v Chicago ruling was handed down that the ruling allowed dems to stop playing for gun control votes because they could point to the ruling, shrug their shoulders and say, "Oh well, I wanted to but the courts tied our hands."


...WTH can't the administration say this court ruling leads them to endorse equal rights?


Someone explain this to me please.

If anyone tried to say Obama was a homophobe I'd laugh at them and if they tried to say Obama is trying to gain points with the right I'd laugh at Obama.

Can anyone make sense of this?
