One response to “Obama: “met my commitments to the LGBT community””

  1. Francoise

    Well if smarmy sycophants and pettifogging politicians could fly, that ballroom would have been an airport. Frankly, I find the obsequiousness revolting.

    He talks the talk and the walks the walk but he does not walk his talk. Translated from Ketman, the phrase “met my commitments to the LGBT community” really means I have done all I am going to do. That’s it folks.

    Where is there a journalist or activist with the guts to demand that this so-called “civil rights lawyer” actually provide a LEGAL reason why the does not support ‘equal protection of the law’?

    Again, he only gets away with it because of toothless lap dogs who let him cavalierly toss-over the insult of ‘states’ rights’ claptrap that was flatly overruled by SCOTUS in Loving v. Virginia. That Obama does as he does is Politics. That the self-anointed high priests of the LGBT ‘leadership’ and the press let him get away with it is a disgraceful dis-service to the Community and more a tribute to propaganda but a disgrace to journalism.

    Brace yourselves for when SCOTUS finally strikes down all these despicable gay jim crow laws, these Giucci-shoed sycophants and propagandists (not any Stonewall activists) are the one’s who will be taking credit for it. Frankly our heroic lawyers are the only ones we can rely on.

    How ironic that two conservative straight men may give us our biggest victory despite the obstruction of our own leadership.

    When it comes to political donations the LGBT community might send out a better and stronger message by letting Obama know that instead of contributing to his campaign their dollars will go to the anti PropH8 legal team.
