Combine that with conservatives wanting states to have more governmental control over it's people. The only ones that are going to applaud Obama if he goes after these states are hardcore, right wing, Christians. That's it. He can never, ever, please them outside of this one opportunity. And let's face it, Republicans are fighting for their future lives in elections because of their unwillingness to step further away from them.
Obama needs to find a way to tactfully let this play out. This is how prohibition's end got started. State by state.
