This is what a “fierce advocate” for LGBT rights looks like – NOT


From Allahpundit at Hot Air:

Weak: Obama punts on gay marriage at NY LGBT fundraiser

Remember, his base had been looking forward to this speech as the moment when he might finally finally finally confirm what everyone suspects by admitting that he supports gay marriage. The stars were aligned: It was an LGBT event, so the crowd would have been ecstatic. The New York legislature’s on the brink of approving a gay marriage bill, so the dramatic timing would have been spectacular. And his aides reportedly have been debating whether he should finally declare his true position, so the expectations for tonight were understandably high. And yet … he just couldn’t do it. I honestly though he might, although that was silly of me in hindsight. This guy just finished short-circuiting a war for purely electoral reasons; why would he then turn around and alienate seniors and black Democrats by suddenly embracing gay marriage? Makes no sense. Can’t believe I thought there was a chance. Ah well.

That was the observation of one of the other guys – you know, an evil conservative. One of the people progressives assume is a racist, homophobic war monger.

Gee, imagine if Obama had used that bully pulpit to unequivocally endorse the right of LGBT couples to marry. Maybe it would have tipped the balance in the NY Senate. But he didn’t.

Here’s what one of Obama’s deluded followers had to say:

Besides that, the usual stuff. Hope everyone got their money’s worth. But, looks like we’ll need to keep up the pressure. Remember, we’re doing this for his own political good. The President is already behind the curve of public opinion on marriage, particularly with young voters. He looks out of touch. It’s still early. There’s still time for Obama to evolve. It will be another political calculation on his part. Hopefully, he’s beginning to understand that it’s good politics to be on fully on our side.

This is a classic form of Obot denial – “He has to say/do that.

The Obots believe Obama secretly loves them but thinks has to shit all over them in public to get elected/reelected.

They said that when he campaigned with Donnie McClurkin. They said that when he refused to attend the 2008 Chicago Gay Pride Parade (he got a haircut instead.) They said that when he went on MTV just before the 2008 election and said:

I’ve stated my opposition to this. I think [Prop 8 is] unnecessary. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.

So I have a message for Joe Sudabay and the rest of the LGBT Obot community:

Put down the Koolaid and step away from the punch bowl. BARACK OBAMA DOES NOT SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE!

That is the real Obama – the guy who says he is your “fierce advocate” is the phony.

    I remember watching Obama on TV at a townhall rally somewhere out west (Montana?) during the campaign. He went off on this tangent at one point on gay marriage saying to the crowd (roughly) — with all the problems we have in the country today, do you know what people are protesting about these days, gay marriage…gay marriage, can you believe that…how can that be a national priority. He was not working from a script. And that’s what I think of Obama on gay rights…not principles, not empathy or identification, but pure political opportunism. He will bargain, but he will not care.

    My gaydar still says BO is in-the-closet in-denial, which is where all his antipathy to LGBT rights comes from. No one hates like a self-hater.

      It makes a certain amount of Alinsky sense. Obama used sex scandals to take out two opponents for Senate. One was getting sealed divorce records for Jack Ryan, his Republican challenger and the other was outing Alan Keyes’ gay daughter when he became the Republican challenger.

      • jjmtacoma says:

        What about John Edwards – I’m pretty sure obama had the goods on him by his behavior.

        • votermom says:

          I think he knew about Edwards affair, and then exposed him anyway when he didn’t need him anymore.
          ETA: I am only speculating; I have no proof.

        Voter Mom,
        I believe Larry Sinclair – could be set to music in fact. Then there’s the demise of the gay choir director at the fraud’s church. I responded to you at Hillaryis44 about this as well. I’m a lesbian and the fraud does not “feel” straight to me.

    OT Signal Boost:

    Violet over at Reclusive Leftist has an Emergency Medical Blegging post. If you are able, please consider helping her out.

    http://www.reclusiveleftist.com/2011/06/24/emergency-medical-blegging/

    Note: Please ignore this post if you are poor, cash-strapped, or otherwise struggling. This is only for those who can afford to help.
    Longtime readers have probably figured out by now that I have a couple of medical conditions that rule my life (and my pocketbook). I’ve known for awhile that one of those conditions was eventually going to require treatment, and I’ve been trying my hardest to save up for it. Unfortunately, saving-up time is over. Things have suddenly deteriorated in a major way, and I need surgery. And no, I don’t begin to have enough money to cover it. So if you are one of those people who likes the blog and appreciates whatever it is that I do here, this would be an excellent time to pitch in a few bucks. It would mean the world to me.
    I am so grateful for your wonderful friendship and kindness. I love you all.

    “fierce advocate”? of anything other than his own wonderfulness? *snort* This was the guy whose political ‘experience’ involved voting “present” most of the time when in the IL state senate. Of course, the Obots had plenty of lame excuses for that.

  5. 1539days says:

    Bush opposes gay marriage and he’s a hate mcmuffin. Obama does nothing on gay marriage and he needs time to evovle.

  6. Mr. Mike says:

    The lower his approval numbers come 2012 the fiercer an advocate for Progressive values he will become. That includes same sex marriage.

    The machine will not allow a challenger unless it looks like the “elites” might go down with the ship. If the likes Pelosi, Schumer, Dodd and etc are in danger of being ousted …

  7. My reading of this speech and other related speeches is Obama has nothing but disdain for the LGBT community. It isn’t that he just doesn’t care, he really doesn’t like them. I think he’s actually worse than Bush on that issue.

  8. votermom says:

    Just an OT vent. Some lefty bloggers are might thin-skinned. I forgot that outside of crawdad’s hole, if I disagree with a blogger on their blog when they post some questions they get all indignant and offended and have to put up another post talking about how persecuted they are.
    I thought people want to read answers when they post questions…
    *scratches head*

    Obama let his voice be used on robo calls in support of Prop 8. There is no way you could tell me that he couldn’t have stopped them. His campaign was quick to respond to such things.

    This site has a clip of the robo call. I came home to this on the answering machine and knew he had pushed Prop 8 over the finish line. Yet another stomach turning moment in that election.

    • Erica says:

      Same here, Karma. I remember the message well, and knew he wouldn’t do squat about it, despite the intensity of control his campaign exercised over everything. If they didn’t do something, it was because they didn’t want to (prop 8, Palin is a c*unt on his website, etc.) And I think he doesn’t like gays one little bit. And he may be one, too. At least that would explain his weirdness with women on the campaign trail.

      Most of my friends still voted for him.

    This is a great piece. Thank goodness for Greenwald on civil liberties.

    Climate of Fear: Jim Risen v. the Obama administration

    • Mr. Mike says:

      If the President advocates it, it is not illegal.

      There was a reason why Nancy Pelosi refused to look into what Bush and dick Cheney were doing in Iraq, now you know why.

      Too bad the voters in her district don’t have the guts and integrity to send her packing and elect a real Democrat. Same goes for a few other prominent so call Dems.

    • votermom says:

      The BO admin has been really punishing whistleblowers.
      SHows you whose side they are on.
