Obama heads to Hills; gays ask, 'If Heidi and Spencer can marry, why not us?'

by Jeremy Hooper

If it was an all-out protest, we probably wouldn't support it. But it's not a protest -- it's a call for our president to step up and fulfill his promises to the LGBT community. So with a productive working mindset like that, we'll gladly sign on:

Picture 8-140President Barack Obama, the most LGBT-friendly president in history, will be at the Beverly Hilton the evening of Wednesday, May 27th, for a DNC fundraiser. Let's take this opportunity, just one day after the CA Supreme Court makes its decision on Proposition 8, to show our President our support for his daring promise to our community and to highlight the growing movement towards FULL FEDERAL EQUALITY.

Join us at a rally at 6PM in front of the Beverly Hilton on Wednesday, May 27th.

Rally for LGBT Equality with President Obama / Day after the Day of Decision (Rally) [Courage Campaign]

You know what would be epic? If the president stepped off his scheduled itinerary, rolled up his sleeves, and delivered a frustrated community some campaign-era "hope."

You know what would be a start? If the administration would just give us a clue that they are hearing our concerns, and that they share most, if not all of them.

We'll have to wait to see if the troops in Beverly Hills manage to sell any Wilderness Girl cookies garner any public support. Naked ring fingers crossed, everyone.

Your thoughts

I wonder if Obama and Gibbs have spoken about this issue yet? My guess is that even if there are a million angry gays and supporters out chanting for hope and change, the big man won't even so much as bat an eye in a gay friendly way so as not to upset those precious conservatives who wouldn't even dare voting for him anyway.

Oh, come on all, didn't you read that article in EQUALITY where Valerie Jarrett said we have nothing to worry about because Joe. S will be invited to dinner a lot at the WH. There problems solved. Well, theirs are...That will surely keep Joe quiet.

Sorry LOrion, I forgot about that. Now that we have one of our own at the dinner table we no longer have anything to worry about. Problem solved! What's next on our agenda?
