I went and visited several blogs & twitters by misc gay people who happen to be conservative. They are mostly going “Hey! The Economy! National crisis! SSM = Distraction!”
They are also doing quite a bit of “well, this is a useless (from a gay viewpoint) bit of transparent pandering.”
To paraphrase one post: “so now if a gay single man is unemployed he can become a gay married man who is unemployed.”
Personally, I think it’s interesting that BHO comes out with his lukewarm little status quo endorsement (and calls in important) AFTER the NC vote, not before. My guess is that he thought that if he “endorsed” SSM before the NC vote, which was pretty certain to pass, then he would be seen as having a “defeat.”

OBoBo can bob and weave, but his teleprompter script is still the *Wiley Coyote* & his ACME weapons versus the “Speedy Dog on top of his Station Wagon” !

That’s an awesome photoshop. What’s the original? You could also use the Jimmy-Cagney-smacks-the-grapefruit-into-Mae-Clark’s-face image (“Public Enemy” (1931)).
