Obama: ‘Gay And Lesbian Men And Women Make America Safer’
As a follow-up action to his 2010 Christmas repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, President Obama grandstanded to remind us all of that fearless display in leadership.
He chose the fifth year anniversary of his action to repeal DADT as a topic for his pre-Christmas address.
Here are a couple of tidbits from his monologue:
“Today, Americans can serve the country they love no matter who they love, and openly gay, lesbian and bisexual men and women in uniform make our military stronger and America safer.”
Nobody ever said they didn’t, Mr. President.
“Because of all we’ve accomplished together, a grieving widow can now receive her wife’s flag at her funeral. A spouse can now be part of his husband’s promotion ceremony. One person told me he had been torn between his desire to serve his country and his longing to live life openly as a gay man.”
“Together, we’ve won some big victories. And I’m going to spend every minute I have left as president working with you to move our country even closer to our founding ideals.”
Why must he turn everything into a speech about himself?
