NATIONALGay leadersblameTVads, Obamaforloss in MaineSAN FRANCISCO (AP) Stunnedandangry, nationalgayrights leaders Wednesdayblamedscare-mongeringads-andPresidentBarack Obama's lack of en gagement for a bitter election setbackinMaine that could alter the dynamics forbothsidesinthe gay-marriage debate. Conservatives,incontrast, cel ebrated Maine voters' rejection of alawthatwouldhave allowedgaycouples to wed, depicting it as a warning shot that should de ter politiciansinother states from pushing for same-sex marriage. "Every time the citizens have votedonmarriage, they have alwayssidedwithnatural marriage," said Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, a Florida-based Christian legal group. "Maine dramatically illustrates the will of the people,andpoliticians shouldwakeupandlisten." Gay activists were frustratedthat Obama,whoinsistshestaunchly supports their overall civil rights agenda,didn'tspeakoutforcefullyindefense of Maine's marriagelawbefore Tuesday'S ref erendum. Thelawwasrepealedina vote of53percent to 47 percent. "President Obama missedanopportunity to state his position against these discriminatory at tackswiththe clarityandmoral imperative thatwouldhave helpedinthis close fight," said Evan Wolfsonof the national advocacygroupFreedom to Marry. "The anti-gay forces are throwing millions of dollars into various unsubtleadsaimedatscaring people, so subtle statements from the White House arenotenough." The White House, asked about the criticism,hadnoimmediate comment.
