RE “ON gay marriage, Obama is on the right side of history” (Editorial, May 10): I find it hard to believe that the president would take this stand regarding the gay community during an election year. I would assume that the overwhelming majority of gays would vote Democratic at any cost. When states have voted on the legality of gay marriage, they have voted against it. Only when the liberal judiciary gets involved, it seems, has the law changed.
It would seem that Barack Obama should be focused on increasing his voting base. Something does not add up here.
