Obama Disappoints...Again

The Barberini Palace in Rome

Blogger John Aravosis on Obama at last nights HRC soiree:

All in all, the evening was a disappointment, but not unexpected. President Obama doesn't do controversy, and we, my friends, are controversy. So, the bad blood between this administration and the gay community will remain, and continue to worsen. It's unfortunate, but at some point you have to have enough dignity to say enough is enough. The Obama administration doesn't respect our community, and doesn't respect the seriousness of our cause. It's our job to hold them accountable.

At some point the The HRC set has to stop being Obama's gay house niggers. The rest of us recognize what's going on...mere lip service from a president who has failed to keep his campaign promises to the gay community. The time for campaign sppeches is over. The time for action is here and past. Issue the stop-loss order to end discharges of gay and lesbian service members NOW. Provide a time frame and a legislative action plan for the repeal of DOMA NOW. Enough of the feel-good rhetoric. DO SOMETHING.
