    Unlike Hillary Clinton who made marching in the annual Gay Pride Parade a tradition of hers as New York Senator, and marched in Pride as a First Lady too, Clinton promised to be the first President to march in a Pride Parade as well. Instead of marching in Chicago‚Äôs Pride Parade, Obama went to the barber shop for a haircut, then over to the elite East Bank Club for some basketball and a nice long whirlpool and steam. Yep, I think we’ve been taken for fools.

    It’s more than a little troubling that Obama is tone deaf on the matter of Rick Warren and why his involvement in the inaugural events is so hurtful to the gay community. He was masterful in concealing this antipathy during the primary. Maybe Obama’s real calling was acting in movies or the theater?

    I think Obama was looking at this more as a relationship between two men that developed over the summer. He invited Obama to speak at his church, and Obama wanted to return the favor. Sure, they have difference, but let’s get along.

    Obama, in his arrogance, in self-assured-talk-to-the-other-side-mantra, doesn’t have the ability or the will to see how he is disparaging and hurting people who once were a solid base to his party…He may appreciate the importance of the gay vote, but I don’t think he appreciates the importance of their need to be treated with dignity.
