Mr. Obama has, in his short political history, shown he can and will throw supporters under the wheels of his bus - especially when there is political collateral to be gained. So why would the GLBT community feel it's different - or otherwise immune - to the same treatment?
Perspective: See article here.
Senior Pentagon leaders on Friday warned Congress not to tamper with the ban on gays serving openly in the military until he can come up with a plan for dealing with potential opposition in the ranks.
In a strongly worded letter obtained by The Associated Press, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen told the House Armed Services Committee that forcing policy changes on the military before it's ready would be a mistake.
"Our military must be afforded the opportunity to inform us of their concerns, insights and suggestions if we are to carry out this change successfully," Gates and Mullen wrote to the panel's chairman, Missouri Democrat Ike Skelton.
So my open question to Cynthia Yockey, Trey Givens, Jenn at Conservative Shemale, and all within the sound of my voice who have a "dog in the race" of GLBT rights and liberties is: Why are you surprised?
You really want to know when Mr. Obama is going to give lip service to your constituency? Try spring of 2011. Mr. Obama has no viable reason to NOT defer the things you feel impact you TODAY until he wants something from you again - like re-election. And you who mindless follow the DemoNazi party - believing they will provide for you - are getting exactly what you asked for (NOT!).
Fact: This statement comes with Mr. Obama's implicit blessing. Mr. Obama doesn't really give a flying f*ck that your lives can be bettered today - it's all about HIM. It always is in Obama's world. And if you didn't know that until today, you should know it now.
Expect Obama's continued indifference until he faces re-election - I'd bet yours and my pay on it. In the meantime, you can bask in the glow of his pathetic approval ratings, and his utter lack of oratory ability when separated from his conjoined twin, TOTUS. All the while believing that he will for some unknown reason rise to any given occasion and declare you "NORMAL". (I mean no with the comment - those of you who are or know someone GLBT know what I mean to relay with the comment).
I hope you who have counted on Mr. Obama to normalize existence as a GLBT citizen in the United States realize exactly where he has put you. I encourage you to remember all the way to the polls next month, June and November. Or, you can always wait until spring of 2011 when he'll throw you a bone for your vote. I promise he will disappoint you until then - and if I were to be a betting man - long thereafter as well.
Sorry folks. I just call them as I see them....
