JR_RJ saidSpiffy bone, nibble nibble... now give us our Equal Legal Rights, Mr. President!
Now give us our equal rights, Republican majority House of Representatives, and Republican State Houses across the US. No President can pass laws on his own, he can only sign what Congress gives to him. Nor can a President directly influence what State Republicans are doing to rob gays of our civil rights.
President Obama already blazed the path, by pushing for elimination of DADT, and refusing to support DOMA. By becoming the first President to say he supports gay marriage, and being the most pro-gay President ever to occupy the White House.
He wants to do much more, Republicans, that you have steadfastly opposed, with your party-line votes and Senate filibusters. When will you end your anti-gay opposition, and let President Obama and the Democrats move forward with gay civil rights? And no longer make signing a pledge to pass an anti-gay marriage Constitutional amendment a litmus test for becoming your party's Presidential candidate?
