    Friend, Obama doesnt give a flying fuck about you or your gay pride issues. You are just another voting block he is pandering to for votes. He tossed you a bone by saying he is in favor of gay rights whatever the fuck that means after grandpa Joe stuck his foot in his mouth.

    Hate to hit you again with those pesky facts but Obama's words have plenty of action behind them.


    No one should rest until we have full LGBT equality. But after eight years of Republican disrespect, progress is being made. In its first term, the Obama Administration has...

    FEDERAL LEGISLATION SIGNED INTO LAW

    Signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which expanded existing United States federal hate crime law to include crimes motivated by a victim’s actual or perceived gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability -- the first positive federal LGBT legislation in the nation's history
    Repealed Don't Ask/Don't Tell
    Signed the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act


    POLICIES CHANGED

    Reversed US refusal to sign the UN Declaration on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
    Extended benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees in 2009 and, further, in 2010
    Lifted the HIV Entry Ban
    Issued diplomatic passports, and provided other benefits, to the partners of same-sex foreign service employees
    Committed to ensuring that federal housing programs are open to all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity
    Conceived a National Resource Center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Elders -- the nation's first ever -- funded by a three-year HHS grant to SAG
    Banned job discrimination based on gender identity throughout the Federal government (the nation's largest employer)

    Eliminated the discriminatory Census Bureau policy that kept our relationships from being counted, encouraging couples who consider themselves married to file that way, even if their state of residence does not yet permit legal marriage
    Instructed HHS to require any hospital receiving Medicare or Medicaid funds (virtually all hospitals) to allow LGBT visitation rights
    Required all grant applicants seeking HUD funding to comply with state and local anti-discrimination laws that protect LGBT individuals
    Adopted transgender recommendations on the issuance of gender-appropriate passports that will ease barriers to safe travel and that will provide government-issued ID that avoids involuntary "outing" in situations requiring ID, like hiring, where a gender-appropriate driver's license or birth certificate is not available
    Extended domestic violence protections to LGBT victims
    Extended the Family and Medical Leave Act to cover employees taking unpaid leave to care for the children of same-sex partners
    Issued guidance to assist tenants denied housing on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and banned LGBT discrimination in all HUD-assisting housing and HUD-assisted loans
    Issued a National HIV/AIDS Strategy praised as "long-overdue" by the Task Force, Lambda and others
    Issued guidance to 15,000 local departments of education and 5,000 colleges to support educators in combating bullying
    Cut back authority to discharge under Don't Ask/Don't Tell from hundreds of generals to just 6 civilian appointees, effectively ending discharges while working toward a permanent end to the policy.
    Led the fight that reversed a 2010 UN vote removing sexual orientation from the list of things people should not be killed for
    Launched the first-ever national study of discrimination against members of the LGBT community in the rental and sale of housing
    Determined that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional
    Determined that LGBT discrimination should be subject to a standard of "heightened scrutiny"
    Stopped defending DOMA, leading to "dramatic changes across the country and the federal government in the way that lawyers and judges see legal challenges brought by LGBT people - and, slowly but surely, in the way that LGBT people are able to live their lives"
    Filed an unprecedented brief detailing the history of discrimination faced by gay, lesbian and bisexual people in America, including by the federal government itself -- the single most persuasive legal argument ever advanced by the United States government in support of equality for lesbian, gay and bisexual people
    Vacated a court order that would have deported a gay American's Venezuelan partner
    Begun recognizing joint bankruptcy petitions filed by same-sex married couples
    Endorsed the Respect for Marriage Act
    Reduced the deportation threat faced by binational LGBT couples
    Authorized military chaplains to perform same-sex weddings on or off military bases
    Upped the nation's commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS at home and abroad
    Launched a muscular, game-changing campaign for global LGBT equality, highlighted by the Secretary of State in a half-hour address to the United Nations
    Extended the gender-based employment discrimination protections of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to transgender employees
    Added an LGBT representative to the diversity program at each of the nations 120 federal prisons

    RESPECT & INCLUSION

    Endorsed the Baldwin-Lieberman bill, The Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act of 2009, to provide FULL partnership benefits to federal employees
    Released the first Presidential PRIDE proclamations since 2000
    Hosted the first LGBT Pride Month Celebration in White House history
    Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Harvey Milk and Billie Jean King, joining past recipients such as Rosa Parks
    Appointed the first ever transgender DNC member
    Testified in favor of ENDA, the first time any official of any administration has testified in the Senate on ENDA
    Hired more openly LGBT officials (like these) in its first two years -- more than 150, including more than 20 "Senate-confirmables" -- than any previous administration hired in four years or eight
    Sworn in Ambassador David Huebner
    Changed the culture of government everywhere from – among others – HUD and HHS to the Export-Import Bank, the State Department, and the Department of Education
    Appointed Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, instead of conservatives who would have tilted the Court even further to the right and virtually doomed our rights for a generation. To wit (quoting McCain): "I've said a thousand times on this campaign trail, I've said as often as I can, that I want to find clones of Alito and Roberts. I worked as hard as anybody to get them confirmed. I look you in the eye and tell you I've said a thousand times that I wanted Alito and Roberts. I have told anybody who will listen. I flat-out tell you I will have people as close to Roberts and Alito [as possible]."
    Named open transgender appointees (the first President ever to do so)

    Emphasized LGBT inclusion in everything from the President’s historic NAACP address (“The pain of discrimination is still felt in America. By African American women paid less for doing the same work as colleagues of a different color and a different gender. By Latinos made to feel unwelcome in their own country. By Muslim Americans viewed with suspicion simply because they kneel down to pray to their God. By our gay brothers and sisters, still taunted, still attacked, still denied their rights.”) . . . to the first paragraph of his Family Day proclamation (“Whether children are raised by two parents, a single parent, grandparents, a same-sex couple, or a guardian, families encourage us to do our best and enable us to accomplish great things”) and his Mothers Day proclamation ("Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by two parents, a single mother, two mothers, a step-mom, a grandmother, or a guardian. Mother's Day gives us an opportunity to celebrate these extraordinary caretakers") . . . to creating the chance for an adorable 10-year-old at the White House Easter Egg roll to tell ABC World News how cool it is to have two mommies . . . to including the chair of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce along with the Secretary of the Treasury and the President of Goldman Sachs in the small audience for the President’s economic address at the New York Stock Excha

    Just for a little historical perspective. A couple of years after the great depression was over, the world wound up in World War II

    Anything that is better than WWIII is a fabulous success.

    Yep, Obama inherited a recession, and made it worse.

    There are fewer Americans working today than when Obama took office.

    About 2/3 of the American people agree that Obama has changed America, for the worse.

    Obama "saved" GM as payback for his UAW supporters. Obama saving GM required violations of the nation's bankruptcy laws, resulting in many investors getting ripped off. GM is "profitable" not because it has a new business model, but because the taxpayers are out $25 billion which hasn't been paid back, and GM is excused from paying federal taxes. It's more Obama scam, which makes drones swoon.

    Like visuals? Here you go...

    I'm no fan of George W. Bush nor his father. IMO, Neither was a good President. But my reasons for what I believe is far different than yours,

    If you wish to be taken seriously, you should at least name the laws they tried to pass that were anti-gay. I am not aware of any, but you seems to know of a few. Please inform us about it from your own knowledge of these anti-gay laws they tried to pass.

    The roots of the 2007 - 2008 crises began

    In legislation during Jimmy Carters Presidency: See

    http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/watkins/CRA.htm

    And furthered by the Clinton Administration.

    Thanks Jock. I know your post is accurate except for your derogatory comment to David, which I find to be inappropriate.

    What more can be said except that people hear what they want to hear and disregard the rest. Many here think President O'Bama is pro-gay. I believe they will sooner or later realize this is not so. His allegiance lies elsehwere.
