    HELLO???? They couldn’t do this when there were clear majorities in both houses????

    This is nothing more than empty posturing and pandering to the LGBT community whose support and dollars are desired as we approach the 2012 elections.

    I’m not moved.

    Pfui!

    Even 2 years ago when Dems had majorities, there was not as much support for LGBT issues as there is today. Support has grown by leaps and bounds lately. And, now they even have the cover of court decisions that have called DOMA unconstitutional. Politicians seldom lead, they follow when they feel it is safe to do so.

    Actually, it is more than empty posturing and pandering–frankly, we’re not that important as a voting block (unless we falsely flatter ourselves) for the Democrats to step up to the plate for that reason. Is it perfect timing given the number of Republicans in Congress? No. But this marks an important cultural shift, one that brings more people on board so that the foundation supporting DOMA will continue to crumble. My Senator, Sen. Leahy, has been more and more outspoken about repealing DOMA (and he voted for it!), and, as a shoo-in in VT, he doesn’t need to pander for votes or money.

    Dismissing support is not constructive. Praising support and continuing to demand more action is constructive.

    It’s fine to be critical, but at least be informed. The Democrats couldn’t pass a DOMA repeal two years ago when they were in the majority, and they still can’t now. Nothing has changed. There were never 60 votes in the Senate, and there was never a majority in the House.

    That doesn’t mean you stop supporting good progressive Democrats like Pelosi and the signatories on the amicus brief–it just means you need more of them!

    Blame them for failing to pass bills they actually might have passed if they’d tried, like ENDA. DOMA will die in the Courts in the next two years, but we need ENDA to be passed into law.

    Thank you President Clinton, for signing DOMA into law, all the dems who voted for it, and especially Bob Dole and all the Republicans who started this to begin with.

    You write: “Even 2 years ago when Dems had majorities, there was not as much support for LGBT issues as there is today. Support has grown by leaps and bounds lately.”

    Where exactly is your evidence for this? Your personal interactions? Don’t make me laugh. You sound like the pollsters whose numbers were telling them that Sharron Angle was going to beat Harry Reid in the Senate race in Nevada last year (yea I know it’s been a year and the average person’s memory never goes back that far).

    Often what gets mistaken for support of gay rights issues is nothing more than lukewarm posturing for purposes of being politically correct. This is The Stupid United States of America, where we have popular referenda. So the only true measure of support is what happens in the privacy of the ballot box. That’s where the latent anti-gay animus harbored by most people usually shows its full colors.

    Politicians seldom lead, I’ll give you that much. But then true leaders don’t hide behind the tide of public opinion. A true leader has the balls to say and do the right thing when it’s not popular. So if the democrats in congress are not doing the right thing, they’re not leaders, they’re political opportunists.

    That was a really good article, thanks for taking the time to put it together! You have managed to point out some very good points. I can’t say that I completely agree about some points, but you certainly have a unique perspective. Anyway, I like your post.
