Obama Knocks GOP for Booing Gay Soldier
Oh Mr. President, can you do any more for the LGBT community (other than the numerous things you already have)? Apparently, yes, yes he can.
At Obama’s first fundraiser in San Jose, California, the president took aim at GOP candidates and some recent (shameful) debate behavior.
“That’s not reflective of who we are,” Mr. Obama said. “This is a choice about the fundamental direction of our country. 2008 was an important direction. 2012 is a more important election.”
Zing! Get it, Obama!
I don’t know how everyone else feels, but it really makes me support and appreciate Obama a lot more when he can point out stuff like this and say, “Hey, that’s not OK and that’s not what America is about.”
In case you guys need a refresher, the incident Obama’s referring to was during a GOP debate last week when a gay soldier asked Rick Santorum a DADT-related question, only to be met with boos from the audience.
As far as the stuff about Rick Perry and climate change, it’s good to know that there are OTHER people who also think these guys are crazy.
Also, while we’re on the subject about GOP candidates, I have a question: Since when did it become OK, or rather commonplace, for GOP candidates to infuse so much religion into their campaigns? Rick Perry’s co-chair claims God is sending disasters because of gay people and Michele Bachmann has called the homosexual lifestyle “Satanic.” Whatever happened to “Separation of Church and State?”
Don’t even get me started on how wrong it is that someone as crazy as Michele Bachmann could even be seriously considered a candidate for the presidency…
But, I digress. How do you guys feel about President Obama’s support? Are any of you ex-Republicans like he mentioned?
