    "The pressure on Obama and the White House to reverse their craven decision not to go foward with the executive order barring federal contractors from discrimination based on sexual orientation is about to get a good deal more intense."

    Have these same gay activists asked the Romney campaign for the governor's response to this same issue?

    Romney has signed the NOM pledge to destroy gay marriage with a constitutional ban. Does anyone think he'll be signing an executive order to fight anti gay discrimination?

    "Romney is not the President, nor is it clear if he will be the President."

    Great Point!

    And let's make certain that there is no chance in Hell that Romney gets his hands anywhere near anti gay legislation, because we both know he'll sign any hateful NOM-backed bill to crush gay rights.

    I'm quite impressed on how President Obama has taken a moderate approach to a liberal topic: LGBT rights.

    I'm quite pleased with LGBT progress in one of the most conservative institutions in our nation: the military.

    The Republicans are clear in their political platform that they would, in essence, turn back the clock to the days when LGBT persons would have to wear pink triangles on the way to gas chambers and crematory ovens after execution.

    Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are not right for leadership in the White House, nor either chamber of Congress.

    I do hope the Republican Party can get back to its' roots and be more like during the days of Eisenhower or Lincoln. We need a strong multi-party system in our system of government. Unfortunately, the Republicans have gone radically fascist and xenophobic. Sad.

    Agreed. What Obama has done with DADT is comparable to Truman in 1947, when he integrated Black soldiers into the US armed forces by Executive Order. Republicans at that time also opposed Truman, just as Republicans oppose Obama's DADT action today.

    And yet there are some RJ members here who insist that Obama has done nothing for gay rights. And that as a result, we should instead support the likes of Romney, and other Republicans, who have signed the NOM pledge to eliminate gay right with a US Constitutional amendment.

    HUH??? How does that make sense? Obama allegedly hasn't done enough (when in truth he has done a great deal for gays), so instead we should vote for the gay haters? How in Hell does that make any sense? Only if you're a Right Winger, apparently.
