Being critical of Obama on gay rights.

I really liked the criticism of Obama on promises to act on inequities affecting the homosexual community. It does not stop me from being supportive of the president. I have a number of areas I am in disagreement, but like most liberals, I differentiate and prioritize. But that doesn't mean we are obliged to just look the other way, to not question, or to not speak out and challenge. We have a right to expect more and push for more, without being on the opposite side. Conservatives seem to have some problem with that.
