Is Obama Failing in His Promise to Be a "Fierce Advocate" for All LGBT People?
Ya know what I enjoy, my president making one-liners at the expense of equality.
At a fundraiser in California last night,
where tables were $34,000 a pop [Correction]at $30,000 per couple for dinner, there were protesters outside the Beverly Hilton in regards to President Obama's new found silence about LGBT issues.
During his speech, President Obama retorted:
"One of them(the signs) said, 'Obama keep your promise.' I thought that's fair. I don't know which promise he was talking about."
Andy at Towleroad summed it up well:
Which promise? How about starting with the repeal of DOMA, the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', a federal hate crimes law, and above all, the promise to be a "fierce advocate" for all the LGBT people who voted him into office?
I have been in a foul mood this week and not felt like posting. Then this occurs and my gay ass gets angry.
