    Yes he did. Stop making excuses. He's not an idiot, he's not blind, and the very things he ran his campaign on are the very things he's juggling now.

    Come on.. he didn't know? That's really reaching.
    I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.

    The president is not so totally unlike any regular job as far as what it appears to be on paper doesn't even come close to what one does when working. Considering most civilian jobs do not have to deal, to the same extent, with behind the scenes power plays and other issues the general population knows nothing about, I would have to assume the "I can do anything" bubble explodes more rapidly than for a layperson entering a job.

    I don't think Obama fully realized how many things he would have to juggle.
    Obama realized the slate of things he'd have to juggle. But I think he overestimated his popularity on issues like healthcare reform and DADT and thought that he could use it to buy himself time.

    I was at the march and it wasn't a waste of time. The HRC hosting Obama and the crap speach he gave was a waste of time. Young gays came from all over the country for the march, and I felt more proud than I have in my 47 years to be gay. I hope the younger generation of gays who supported Obama continue to put pressure on him to repeal these ridiculous laws NOW.

    Gays in the U.S. are second class citizens, and have less rights than ANY other group. Actually, I can't think of any other group of individuals who don't have equal rights. Sure, people are still racist, but blacks and other minorities still have equal rights under the law. There will always be homophobes. I'm just sick and fucking tired of their views being supported by federal law.

    Oh. And Barney Frank SUCKS. Literally.

    My my, didn't we all just dip our tongues in some acid today.

    It is indeed shocking that gays are not protected under discrimination laws.
