Jamie Kirchick Reminds Everyone Dem Prez’s Have Done Squat For Gays

The New Republic’s James Kirchick says “Gays, don’t get your hopes up” in an op-ed today. Kirchick points out that while it’s nice that an Obama administration will be sympathetic to gay causes, neither it or the Democratically controlled Congress is likely to do anything at the federal level about same-sex marriage. Kirchick’s makes some salient points amid race baiting comments like “It’s worth noting that many of the voters in Obama’s winning coalition, notably blacks, remain culturally conservative – and helped those referenda prevail.” [NY Daily News]
