Listen (And Applaud) President Obama's Speech From Last Night's HRC Dinner

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack Obama

He talks Don't Ask Don't Tell, the hopeful repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, and Lady GaGa.

Yeah, it's worth the listen.

Last night, President Obama brought the congregation at the Human Rights Campaign's 15th Annual National Dinner to it's feet with his speech about furthering the rights of homosexuals in America. We encourage you to watch the video in full, but just to have an idea of the kind of commendable things he said at the podium, here is a taste. He said:

"Every single American — gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender — every single American deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society. It's a pretty simple proposition."

It certainly is Mr. President. How sad that it is that it is taking this long to get the country on board with equality for all. Let's just hope in the next four years, the right leader will take BIGGER strides towards making that dream a reality.

    i hope he becomes a gay marriage supporter if he gets re elected.

    but i find it funny that half of the time, you bash on him.



  2. 2

    Does the HRC know that Barry Obama opposes gay marriage? Did they forget that Barry invited anti-gay Rick Warren to speak at his inauguration? Gay people who support Obama are like Jews who supported Hitler.

    ""He talks Don't Ask Don't Tell, the hopeful repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, and Lady GaGa."" Yeah those ARE the most important things going on in the world right now.

    Oh yay, Lets waste time on a minority when their problem is completely irrelevant (marriage) compared to all of the other crap.

  5. yeez says – reply to this

    Marriage laws regarding who is allowed to marry (minors, distant family members, etc.) are determined by individual states, not the federal government. Stop acting like Obama needs to fix this.



  6. 6

    Also in his speech, he supports polygamy. Within 5 years we will be able to marry more than 1 spouse….and even of different sexes. We are finally evolving.



  7. 7

    This man will do anything, everything just to avoid facing the real problems that are facing this country
    Unemployment, inflation, security

    PS
    And seeing Michelle shopping Targets was just too priceless, didn't anyone tell the handlers, that is a non union store ???

    He's paying attention to the gay vote again? Wow - Is election time that close?

    Re: COL Kurtz – into a pile of shit…..get therapy…you were obviously abused as a child….severely…



  10. 10

    Guess he got tired of promising to create jobs and fix the economy… what a waste of time! Obama is a joke!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Nice try but if you think you're tricking us into voting for a conservative, you're so dumb that I feel bad for you. I don't understand why conservatives think they can trick gay liberals? I don't try to trick anyone. I don't get it.



  12. 12

    Re: COL Kurtz – where did he says ANYTHING about polygamy? UGH.



  13. 13

    Hey I am all for eqaulity, but it doesn't happe over night. How long did womens suffrage take? How long did it take for segregation to end? Also, take into account that women and blacks and hispanics still face neglect in this world so just because your asking it to happen does not mean it will happen over night. There is a lot that needs to be done and changed before equality truly exists it's just really sad that people forget about everything that has been fought for in terms of just paying attention to the now it seems naive to me. Ahhh well I hope some day it works out.



  14. 14

    70% of blacks voted for Prop 8. Truth be told, this president is a black man first and a democrat second. Stop thinking he's in your corner, Perez



  15. 15

    Sexual deviancy is not something to be proud of.



  16. 16

    He's such a tw0-faced, politically expedient MORON. Will he say he supports gay marriage? NO, he's willing to sell you up the river if it will get a few more votes.

    Why are you such an idiot?



  17. 17

    Well, I've got to say I've gotten tired of hearing President Obama say the right things when he's trying to appeal to the gay community, but not in his actions (unless he's forced to). I really almost wish that Hillary or someone else who might actually do something would run against him. I'm over it!



  18. 18

    He's just appealing to his base here…which, really shouldn't be that pleased with him anyway considering his stance on gay marriage.



  19. 19

    another week another outlook, like any other chameleon he changes his coloration to hide in the surroundings. TWO FACED sack of shit



  20. 20

    The word is PANDERING



  21. 21

    Bravo President Obama!
    I am happy that there is fire in your belly finally!
    It is time to lead the country out of this despair & show the Republicans what a real leader can do.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver

    Um no. Obama is a good and decent man. Your Hitler comparison makes no sense. If you want to find sexual deviancy the first group you should investigate are Republican holy rollers. They are always after the young boys in the men's room. Obama will win next year!!! The Bush tax cuts will be rescinded. And all will be well again!!!!!!!



  23. 23

    Stuff like this doesnt happen overnight. It doesnt matter whos President. Facee the facts that there are people in this country who dont like gay people, dont believe in gay marriage and dont support either. Its no different than going thru womens rights and civil rights, and even now its still a struggle.



  24. 24

    Obama says what he has to say to the group that he is talking to. He is a piece of crap that lies and is in way over his head and now our country is falling apart. Perez you are all excited about Obama's new rhetoric but he only says what he has to to get re-elected.

    You better learn Chinese because if he gets elected again, we will be all be speaking Chinese. They will own us.

    AND BTW you won't have to worry about gay rights…..in China you can't even have more then one kid.

    Please keep in mind this piece of shit for president is against gay marriage. Well at least he was the last time he was running.



  25. 25

    So… has he officially given up on the economy??? I'm sorry but this should be far from the top of his agenda right now…



  26. 26

    At this point, if you support president obama you are a brainwashed lemming.

    BUSH = obama



  27. 27

    SaggyASs With a name like that: your the idiot!! Seriously!!!!



  28. 28

    FIRST OF ALL DIDNT HE SAY THE OPPOSITE OF THAT WHEN HE FIRST GOT ELECTED ?
    I SMELL MORE BULLSHIT FROM HIM….
    NOW THAT ELECTION TIME IS COMING UP, HE'S BACK TO SAYING WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET RE-ELECTED….
    It is time for him to GET OUT…..
    He spent more time trying to be a celebrity than a President…
    he is so full of shit I can smell it here in FLORIDA… ( which by the way will be the one to give you the BOOT)….
    TODAY he's for GAYS BUT tomm you better bet your ass he wont be…..
    Don't be a SUCKER for more of his BULLSHIT….



  29. 29

    It disgusts me that Presidents have to acknowledge things like celebrities, we have bigger issues going on, then to waste his time with such bullshit! Yea, lets bog down the courts with cases about kids bullying and calling other kids names, and have the trials held on the tax payers dime…. gtfo!



  30. 30

    "to it's feet" Perez, take a f-ing grammar class. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  31. 31

    It's funny how re-election time isn't too far away and he's now 'supporting the gays'. Far cry from what he said at Rick Warren's church a few years ago…
