(article has citations for all the Obama quotes over the years)

Or maybe they have gotten upset with him, which is why he has taken the time to express how he personally feels (while supporting a state's right to ban it).
It may be less that that aren't getting upset with him, and more that the alternatives are always so much worse. Having someone who goes "Well, I dunno. Yes? Maybe yes. Or no? Uhm... can we talk about it more...?" is preferable to someone who's more like, "No, you're subhuman and you don't deserve the same rights as the rest of us normal people."
