    I haven't seen recent language from him (which may be me being blind)  This is an honest question, cuz I don't know

    Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.

      Probably not much on the issue of not being especially fond of gay political activists. But he's not anti-gay in the sense of the Tea Party nuts, he's not one of them and from everything I can tell can't stand those bozos.

      At a minimum, he has essentially waved the white flag on things like gay marriage. I doubt he had any problem with ending DADT, which was always a stupid policy anyway.

      He apparently didn't care for some of the more, shall we say... passionate members of the gay rights movement. And lets be honest with ourselves, political activists are not always the easiest folks to deal with. This site has been a testament to that the last couple weeks.

      You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.
