Obama, Gay Rights, And Congress

What, exactly, has Obama done to push gay rights legislation in the current congress? Little or nothing! We were told he has a full plate and to be patient. After the mid terms, when Dems will lose seats and perhaps one or both houses of Congress, then we'll be told, "well, we couldn't get Congress to pass our legislation." Let's wake up a bit here. The phony DADT "repeal" bill that is yet to be voted on was noved by Congress to be sure, and Obama only jumped on the bandwagon with it at the last minute. Gays and lesbians invited to White House schmooze sessions and who buy the crap they they hand out are doing a disservice to our community. We need to insist that this president exercise moral leadership on our issues.
