Obama Announcement Is Cold Comfort to LGBT Americans


Obama Announcement Is Cold Comfort to LGBT Americans

(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans respond to President Barack Obama’s latest evolution on the freedom to marry.

“That the president has chosen today, when LGBT Americans are mourning the passage of Amendment One, to finally speak up for marriage equality is offensive and callous,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “Log Cabin Republicans appreciate that President Obama has finally come in line with leaders like Vice President Dick Cheney on this issue, but LGBT Americans are right to be angry that this calculated announcement comes too late to be of any use to the people of North Carolina, or any of the other states that have addressed this issue on his watch. This administration has manipulated LGBT families for political gain as much as anybody, and after his campaign’s ridiculous contortions to deny support for marriage equality this week he does not deserve praise for an announcement that comes a day late and a dollar short.”

    Wow, to see political manipulation and “cold comfort” from a president who has done more for LGBT rights that any other in history. How about we simply take him at his word that he has struggled with it and come to this conclusion. If it was politically motivated he would have siad it after the Nov. election, not before

    Perhaps because I am about the same age as the president, it took me many years to deal with something that was much more personal for me and admit 7 years ago this month that “I am gay.” perhaps it was our Christian upbringing; perhaps societal pressure. I was not under the glare of the national spotlight. While I applaud Dick Cheney for saying so publicly after he left office, I will watch this election cycle for ANY Republican to speak out at the convention or in the media and say what the president said today. Then I shall watch because they shall likely find themselves Lugarized.
