“I doubt very much the president knew this was coming”
—Howard Dean

Well, Ok, maybe he didn’t, but he certainly hasn’t done much to distance himself from even the most noxious parts of the DoJ Smelt brief either.

I want to like Obama and continue to support him, but this is not making that easy.

The GLBT community needs to contact their senators and ask why nothing is being done!!! If we wait for OBAMA that would be a huge mistake. But no more $$ and no blanket support for him until he puts some actions behind his talk.

IT’s time to step up and make our obvious objections known to the administration. This kind of behavior by the administration cannot be accepted or tolerated by any of us. Using the Bush administrations words against us is tantamount to saying everything Obama said about us in the election was simply lies given to only get our votes. It’s time he stands behind his previous words of support to our community. It’s time for him to state his objections to the actions by people in his own administration.

This whole thing reminds me of when Shirley McLain was talking to Jack Nicholson in the movie “Terms of Endearment” when Jack’s character was trying to explain how he felt about Shirley’s character. The quote is, “Blaw, Blaw, Blaw..” Forget any explain ation Mr. Obama gives, it all politics. And politics is “Blaw, Blaw, Blaw…” More of the same slop.

I LOVE Howard Dean. Is it any wonder he does not have a Cabinet position? He speaks clearly. No BS. Why didn’t I marry him?
