  •  This white-house has really failed the gay (3+ / 0-)

    Community I'm sorry to say. It's a shame really, just when you think the white-house might have some fight in their hearts they wallow in cowardice again. I'll do everything in my little precint to get dems elected, but I'm getting really tired of the bums in the Obama white-house.

    •  Other white- houses didn't? (0+ / 0-)

      come to think of it, 64% of Republicans support repeal of DADT, so Republicans in congress are also failing their constituents.

      This implication that somehow, Barack Obama is the one oppressing gays is sickening. 41 Republican congressmen boldly stood and blocked a bill in congress, and Barack Obama is being blamed by Democrats! This is beyond ridiculous.

      •  Other WH didn't promise to be a "fierce advocate (0+ / 0-)

        for gay rights".  Other White Houses didn't have a majority of Republican voters in favor of ending DADT.

        This implication that somehow, Barack Obama is the one oppressing gays is sickening.

        Your pathetic straw man is sickening.  Obama promised to be a "fierce advocate for gay rights", and to end DADT.  He's failed on both counts.  Deal with it.

        41 Republican congressmen boldly stood and blocked a bill in congress, and Barack Obama is being blamed by Democrats! This is beyond ridiculous.

        Beyond ridiculous that you're continuing to make lame excuses when Obama has two wands to halt DADT for as long as he is president: either under a stop loss order, or under DADT itself by directing Gates to classify gays as needed personnel.

        Next weak excuse for weak leadership?  You've been trolling DADT diaries for months, think you'd have some new ones by now.
