Good! It's about time he spoke up!
What happened that night should NOT be tolerated! At all!
During a fundraiser in San Jose, CA, President Barack Obama openly condemned the audience members at the Fox News-Google GOP Presidential debate in Orlando, who booed and jeered soldier Stephen Hill, currently deployed in Iraq, for his sexual preference!
"I mean has anybody been watching the debates lately? You've got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It's true. You've got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don't have healthcare. And booing a service member in Iraq because they're gay. That's not reflective of who we are. This is a choice about the fundamental direction of our country. 2008 was an important direction. 2012 is a more important election."
It's absolutely terrifying to think about how truly ignorant and hateful some of these candidates are - and even more so that they seem to have an audience to cheer their bigotry on!
Keep on standing up to hate, Obama!
Enough is enough!
