All the Feds can do is recognize it on tax forms and extend benefits to its married and partnered employees. So, as a logical person trained in the legal profession (and a sitting President in an election year), he can only really comment on his home state's marriage laws. After all, the President never weighs in on age of content for marriage, waiting period rules, divorce and family court laws, or any other legal part of getting married and unmarried. Heck, even commenting on polygamy gets the President in trouble.
You KNOW he's for gay marriage. And, now that he's said as such, the right-winger bloggers will be all over his Muslim-Commie butt, quoting Jefferson on States' rights, and telling you how he's now ready to destroy marriage and your right to marry and divorce as many times as you please.
There is no easy fix for this issue. No magic wand that will make the country agree. Marriage is a state-level issue, and will need to be fought state by state. There are no shortcuts.
