"We're frustrated with the president because he hasn't been progressive enough on LGBT issues"

vs.

"We're frustrated with the president because of LGBT issues ... but let's face it, we probably would have been frustrated with a Democratic president even if he reincarnated Ronald Reagan's s corpse and granted us the legal right to marry that."

Tonight, CNN hosted that timeless debate:

Your thoughts

Obama has a full plate right now
With the economy being the most important
I personally would understand if he got to us a bit later
Even though we need him now

His place might be full but if he repealed DOMA and DADT...his "plate" would be a bit emptier...!

Here is NEFF's comment: More should take it up: http://tinyurl.com/mlv6dm
"But with four marches and hundreds of thousands of citizen activists there was one constant demand — a demand for equal rights.

Now, on Oct. 11, our community again will march on Washington to demand equal rights. Participants in National Equality March will celebrate the strides over three decades, the leaps in 30 years. We certainly are not marching from the same place we were in 1979.

But marchers also will make known that their governments treat them as second-class citizens and that they are challenging unconstitutional laws and questioning unacceptable policies for our military, our workplaces, our schools and our families."
