Sure the economy is still in the can in spite of billions of dollars in deficit spending, several of our largest employers are in bankruptcy, the world is in turmoil over election rigging in Iran and the military deposing a puppet of Obama's BFF Hugo Chavez in Honduras. Sure the Iranians are still working on nuclear weapons, North Korea is too and has threatened to launch a missile in the general direction of Hawaii. Sure the Congress is passing bills left and right like the "cap-and-trade" legislation causing untold damage to our fragile economy, the threat of hyper-inflation is very real and we have looming over us the mother of all unfunded mandates in socialized medicine on the docket of the Congress.
No worries though, because our President is going out of his way to reassure homosexuals that he is their "champion"
Obama Pleads With Gays, Vows to Be 'Champion'
WASHINGTON -- Countering criticism that he's done little on gay rights, President Obama commemorated the 40th anniversary of the birth of the modern movement by welcoming its leaders to the White House and reaffirming his commitment to their top priorities.
"I want you to know: You have our support," Obama told members of the core Democratic constituency as he and first lady Michelle Obama hosted a cocktail-and-appetizer reception in the East Room for gay pride month. It's been some four decades since the police raid on New York City's gay Stonewall Inn that spurred gay rights activism across the country.
As activists work to change minds and change laws, Obama added: "I will not only be your friend, I will continue to be an ally and a champion and a president who fights with you and for you."
I guess the rest of us will have to fend for ourselves while paying for his profligate "stimulus" spending that is stimulating nothing but the size of the government.
