The President Contributes to "It Gets Better"

And totally blows my tiny mind.

OK, I am late to the party with this, probably because I am totally confused by his message.  Now, if I (an openly gay man) am confused, what on earth are young people thinking when the president's words are no match for his administration's actions,  DOMA, ENDA, and especially Don't Ask, Don't Tell?

It hasn't gotten better for our men in women in the military even with the latest ruling.  What is Obama's point?  To score with the progressive base for the mid-terms?  Forget that move, the GayTM is closed.

Still, I was moved by this video; this is the man I voted for and believed in.  Look carefully at the numerous edits in this piece.  Far too many for my taste.  What was deleted, and why?  I will not be taken in this time. Results, not words, are what matters as we get down to the wire. Here is the video:
Don't get me wrong, I am pleased that the PoUSA has shown an interest in Dan Savage's project, but he needs to put his pen to paper to end injustice (which he can do) instead of appealing court decisions at every turn. I will not be grateful until he grows a pair and makes real changes. Empty words don't carry water.

And so it goes.


  1. I too have ambivalence about Mr. O and the Dems. I am thinking of sitting this one out.

  2. There have suddenly appeared a score of these vids from those scrambling to sucker us once again. I agree. His actions do not measure up to his words. This is a calculated political move and it rings hollow with most of us.

  3. I'm with you all the way, Brother.
    Your Friend, m.
