White House: No Substantive Announcements at Monday LGBT Event


White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked today whether Monday's LGBT Celebration of Stonewall reception at the White House was scheduled because the President is feeling "political heat" over the gay community, and whether there would be any substantive announcements at the event regarding key issues DOMA and "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

In a word: "no".

  1. Love it. Gibbs "doesn't know much about it," but he sure knows there won't be anything substantive announced. What a tool.

  3. The real question is is have you written your representative yet? Do you know how? Well let me help you out.


    Whenever you post anything regarding gay writes. Post links that helps people find out who their representative is and how to write to them. Internet yelling in the end does very little. Action is what's needed.

  6. This is disgusting. We will now be treated to the spectacle of a sucker punch directed at Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach who will be attending this "celebration," hosted by his boss, who will offer him no protection from DADT and instead tell him "you're fired."

  7. This is a disgrace....
    To Haveyouwritten:
    Andy doesn't write about gay WRITES....Tool. We do need action! Send a message to the Dems in 'power' that we will not stand for this and will send Republican to replace them if they can't produce.

  8. Gays that believe Obama is going to do something for us are fooling themselves.Like 99.5% of americans blacks Obama is anti-gay to the core.His upbringing is against believing that gays are worthy of equal rights.He will do just as much as necessary not to look totally anti-gay and that's all.He needed our votes and courted us with fork-tongue.Just as the saying goes:"Promise her the everything but give her (the shaft)".Next election he'll repeat all the promises again and gays will vote for him,again.Fools,fool,fools.

  9. Give me a break Clint, you republican plant. No doubt you're praying for republicans to storm into power so they can knock gay rights out the books.

  10. @Paul-- You're right.

    Is Obama really going to have the balls to look Victor F in the eyes, tell him he admires the man's service, and then let him get fired because he's planning on taking this up a year or two down the line?

  11. Excuse me Oscar, please tell me, what do you know about black people? Are you black yourself?

  12. Obama the ball-less; What a bitter pill this is.
