Monday Morning Man: President Barack Obama!
Today is pretty much going to be all about this guy.
It’s the second Inauguration Day for President Barack Obama and I’ll be watching it all unfold at home here in sunny Southern California.
Let’s hope Mr. Obama will be able to somehow break through the gridlock in congress and get even more done in his second term.
Personally, I’m most grateful for his coming out in favor of gay marriage, of his refusal to allow the Justice Department to defend the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act, of his signing the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, of his ensuring hospital visitation and medical decision making for gay and lesbian patients, of his lifting the ban that prevented people with HIV/AIDS to enter the US, of his signing of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law, and of his enacting the Affordable Care Act – better known as Obamacare.
I guess you could say I’m a fan!
