So Many Of Us Had High Hopes...

Blogger John Avarosis sums up the way many of us feel about Obama, who allows the Department of Justice, which is under his direct authority, to continue to defend unconstitutional anti-gay laws in the courts:

So many of us had such high hopes that an African-American president, because of his own life experience, would be more tuned into, more sympathetic with, the civil rights struggle of others. We believed him when he said he'd be our "fierce advocate." And now he's undercutting our entire civil rights legal strategy before our eyes.

Yes, I'm sure the Republicans would be worse. And if that's the best thing you can say about Barack Obama and the Democratic party, that the Republicans would be worse, then it's no wonder we're having such a hard time in the polls.
