It’s awkward to have President Obama celebrating LGBT Pride at The White House at a time when he refuses to support same-sex marriage which just became legal in New York.

“I’ve met my commitments to the LGBT community,” he told the crowd during remarks made last night in the East Room. “I have delivered on what I promised. Now, that doesn’t mean our work is done. There are going to be times where you’re still frustrated with me. I know there are going to be times where you’re still frustrated at the pace of change. I understand that. I know I can count on you to let me know. This is not a shy group.”

2 Remarks

  1. I agree with him, however, its just a shame that when he and the Democrats were running the show they couldn’t get ENDA passed, all this emphasis on marriage all the while, millions are discriminated against in jobs and housing based on sexual orientation, but, I guess those voices are not heard in the big cities and large states along the coasts. And, I also guess that the vocal ones who are so unhappy and mroe disrespectful towards with him than they ever were with anti-gay anything Bush, will get a better deal under Mitt if he wins.

  2. It’s been clear for a long time that Obama has a core set of beliefs that he religiously (no pun intended) sticks to. The issue here is, he doesn’t seem to recognize that his ideas have shattered everything they have touched repeatedly throughout history. It’s ok… if we survive until next year, the difficult road to Reconstruction -I use that word on purpose- can begin.
