    I'm saying that gay rights have to be treated equally just like any other policy. What part of the Constitution don't you understand?

    •  So Gitmo should have gone after DADT? (0+ / 0-)

      If we're going to go with Constitutional issues ahead of all others, then is GITMO second?  Or am I mistaken and you actually mean that Constitutional issues go after pressing economic issues and health care reform?

      I'm not getting a sense of your priorities here except a general complaint that this one isn't being taken care of early enough in your opinion.

      •  There you go again. (1+ / 0-)

        Making shit up. Let me try again -- no means no. No, we are not going to go to the back of the bus. The Constitution comes first. Obama took an oath of office to defend the Constitution, not to cater to this interest group or that interest group. Everything else will follow.

      •  They can happen at the same time (2+ / 0-)

        Why is this so hard for you to grasp? Obama does not have 5 people working for him. He has thousands working in his administration. There is indeed someone who can spearhead this issue and get it going, CONCURRENTLY with closing GITMO.

        Gosh, why did Obama deal with swine flu, he had so much to do...

        Until Obama does something tangible for the GLBT community, beyond pretty speeches, he is just "All-Talk Barack"
