President Obama gives a rousing speech to a core group of supporters who have been thinking they were forgotten by him. He renewed his commitment to them and updated them on all the progress he has made on different things.
This speech is in 3 parts and is worth the 30 minutes or so it takes to listen to it. He was very warmly received and his speech was applauded many times. He reaffirmed his commitment to END DADT and stated forcefully that he would end it.
Listen to the President as he speaks and you will feel good about his commitments.
Again, as I said, he was very well received and I think the stories of the support of the LGBT community leaving him is overdone.. oh there may be some moving away.. but isn't that the way it always is.. For the most part this was a very receptive crowd and he got several standing O's and lots of applause.
I fully support the repeal of DADT, DOMA and all the other archaic laws on the books. No one has the right to tell anyone who they can love, who they can marry or what they can do with their body. I firmly believe that.
Let's get the government out of our lives, and back into the business of taking care of the welfare of the people as a whole.. instead of nosing into individual lives and bodies.
