To me that is not the trait of a true leader. A leader must stand by their convictions, even unpopular ones or they are not leading.Regarding gay marriage, I think he always was in favor of legalizing it, but was unwilling to come out of the closet about that until the poll numbers showed it wouldn't hurt him much.
All I see when I look down, something jumpin' on the ground, Scratchin' dirt, cluckin' in the barnyard -
Tell me, could that be you?
A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

They moved to the right in an uneven fashion, but I can agree with that assessment.
In fact, there are valid reasons to compare so-called "communist" governments to right-wing ones. Certain differences in theory don't mean entirely different realities. Power is power.

It's not mere disagreement. Looks more like near-pathological hatred to me.Actually I don't mind Democrats...traditional, meaning middle American kind. Its primarily the Politicians, and liberals claiming to be Democrats that I can't stand. As for the race card, why is it left wingers are so narrow minded as to believe that just because I or any other disagrees with Obama or his supporters that I or they must therefore be a racist?
But truth, Hajjaj was convinced, held many layers.
