Nathaniel Frank: President Obama and Gay Rights: Forgetting the Lessons of the Campaign

Nathaniel Frank: President Obama and Gay Rights: Forgetting the Lessons of the Campaign . . . . . The Obama is a lying, abusive, manipulating gonif who either fails to see what he has done to innocent people whose only mistake was to trust in and to vote for him, or whose desperate hope was misplaced, or he is nothing more than an unethical political whore. Notwithstanding anything further he and his White House and congressional minions may do, as if it should be sufficient to throw us doggies a bone, we should shun him and them, as the Amish do to their interlopers. We no longer have any need and / or use for POTUS. We must do for ourselves whatever we need. To hell with the Obama! To hell!
