Look At All The Homosexuals Obama Is Signing Paychecks For

With an estimated 150 openly gay officials appointed to his administration, President Barack Obama has trumped Bill Clinton’s stats in less than two years, notes an Associated Press story conveniently timed to the White House’s desperate efforts not to alienate more gay voters. What’s more, some of them have cleared Senate confirmation hearings without being called “militant extremists,” like Sen. Jesse Helms did with then-San Francisco Supervisor Roberta Achtenberg, who Clinton appointed in 1993. [pictured: Chai Feldblum, who required a recess appointment to get her job]

      Yeah, and Senator John McCain’s chief of staff is openly gay, but it doesn’t mean McCain is going to be advancing gay rights.

      ————————————–

      And they’re all kept on the lower 40 acres at the back of the White House plantation — out of his Cabinet, and out of sight.

      Sort of like how Pres. Thomas Jefferson invented a false wall between the kitchen and the dinning room in his mansion with a revolving serving table attached to it so that the Black kitchen slaves (behind the wall), bringing the food to his guests on his plantation, wouldn’t have to be seen by anyone. You see, Thomas Jefferson was still a little bit ashamed of keeping slaves even though he drafted those hypocritical words “All Men Are Created Equal”. …Sound familiar?

      Actually it is more then Clinton and Bush combined in 16 years. The Administrations goal was to push EDNA through first with its economic agenda, Gay inc. demanded DADT first look where that got us. Wouldn’t it be nice to have job security and still be this close at getting DADT repealed. But apparently the blow hards not in office know better then the people that are. Handing the keys to the GOP is going to make it more difficult to get legislative change for us. There re-districting power will also be greatly improved making it harder to get non-conservatives elected to state offices in previously more liberal areas. You think you are hurting the president by sitting at home? Think again his poll numbers have skyrocketed to 54%. If the economy improves over the year his prospects in 2012 will be very bright. The only people you are damaging is our community.

      @FYI: You are a dirty liar, the GBLT are appointed to high positions in the administration including the Office of Personnel Management that overseas the countries 1.9 million federal workers. So in essence you are saying that in openly gay individual is running roughshod over a lowly plantation of gays in the federal government? I don’t think so.

      great. he signs the paychecks of about one hundred and sixty employees while denying their partners health insurance, survivor benefits, ENDA, and willfully discharges GLBT soldiers.

      Doesn’t balance out.

      My fellow gays…we absolutely cannot vote next Tuesday!

      Obama and the Democrats have done absolutely nothing for gays! Zero! Zilch! Nada! I know that from reading such informative news sources such as “Queerty”

      We should all stay home and NOT vote Democrat. That’s the only way to teach ‘em a lesson!

      Trust me ;-)

      Absolutly untrue. HRC wanted ENDA pushed, and if you remember, it was discovered that they said they would give the Administration cover if they didn’t do anything at all for DADT in the forseeable future.

      @reason: AKA “Does Still Having My Head Up Obama’s Ass Make Me Look Like A Willing Fool?” [YES!]

      You left out that the Obama Administration has so become the land of milk and honey for The Gays that Lambda Legal is SUING that head of the Office of Personnel Management, top [White] House Faggot John Berry, for refusing to obey a CIRCUIT COURT judge’s order to let a lesbian federal court appointee add her wife to her medical insurance EVEN THO it wouldn’t cost the government a cent AND the judge explicitly said his order was NOT a ruling on DOMA itself.

      you are so naive. If Dr. King and Lyndon Johnson had waited for people who are very expert politicians to decide the timing, african americans would still be in the back of the bus. Instead, King had the guts to march and make his own timing demands (aided by Dick Gregory and Stokley Carmichael) and Johnson had the guts to physically bully congressmen to make it happen fast, even though he knew the democrats would lose the south for decades (certainly through the present and foreseeable future.

      @ dr RIGHT ON!
