There are certainly legitimate complaints against Obama in this. He could do more, and he isn't. But the fact is, he can't do what's apparently expected of him. He can't just declare equal marriage, even if he really wanted to. And yet for some goofy-ass reason, he's catching all the blame for proposition 8.

It kind of reminds me of after the results came in on Prop 8... and suddenly California's black voters caught the blame. Remember that, Toasterlad? Hell, I think that particular sack of bullshit was being thrown around here on DU for about a month. I sure as hell remember.

So let's see. Californian blacks catching all the blame for Prop 8, and now the black president catching the blame for the decision of a mostly-white panel of judges.

Do you want to explain to my wide brown ass exactly why I have no call to think this looks a mite peculiar?
