  1. Obama does not deserve to be re-elected. He has turned the economy into a basket-case. His record on gay rights is awful. His lies and deceptions are well known in relation to his failure to act on his promised "fierce gay advocacy".

    He deserves to be a one-term President. Oh, and why aren't there any gay men present? Didn't want to offend true homophobes? This reminds me of the first same-sex Navy kiss which Obama ordered be female-female and not male-male.

    The man is a true homophobe.

  2. Jason, hating Obama won't make your dad love you. You should know this by now. you were born a disappointment and you'll die a disappointment, and hating blacks, liberals and women won't change that.

  3. Yeah, we should have some religious zealot there instead.

  4. You really are an angry man, you might want to look in to that.
    You'll be better off after he wins a 2nd term, but tell me how do you know he "ordered" the kiss to happen?

  5. It is well known that the Obama administration was apoplectic about the notion of the first Navy kiss being a male-male one. I have sources.

    As for his economic record, it's dismal.

  6. You have sources?

  9. jason forgot to take his meds again

    anyway; 1 of the best state of the union speeches

    & now pasty troll ghost daniels in blah blah blahing. What a horid choice for the R rebuttal. The worse hair plugs ever, boring, and known for being "P whipped" by his cheating wife who he took back after her affair

  10. @Kiwi, you're obviously bright, but these constant references to daddy issues have gotten old. It makes you resemble Rick/Jason in obsessiveness. Sorry, but move on. You have so much more to say.

  11. Obama focused on (1) getting Congress to do its job and (2) tax equity for everyone. Seems like a good message. Solid speech.

    I only saw Boehner roll his eyes once.

    Jason - what's your damage? Did you forget that the stock market crash happened in 2007, under Bush's watch?

  12. What STEVE, SAY WHAT, and PAUL R said. Fantastic speech that told Congress where to stick it.

    Posted by: David R. | Jan 24, 2012 11:19:55 PM

  13. Yeah, great speech. But even before he gave it, Boner was out there spouting the "same old failed policies" meme. Whatever his flaws, Obama has always had an impossible uphill climb. I really wish people listened, especially to the ending, when he talked about working together and watching each other's backs. It truly is how we can be great. "Rugged individualism" and "me first" relies on crumbs falling off the table in order to get away with looting the spoils. And as we have seen since the mortgage/banking debacle, "me first" really means Firetruck you.

  14. PUBLICLY ACKNOWLEDGED strategy for President Obama's 2012 campaign is to 'court' so-called minorities [especially Hispanic; black folks are old news and have been eclipsed in the 'minority' department by Hispanics], women [white women are very important swing vote]; and to right off, even demonize, 'white' so-called working-class [pretty much any white who isn't living in the suburbs and employed in a 'profession'] especially, of course, white males [those evil white devils]. Gays are too small in numbers and as far as a 'rainbow' coalition, here's a newsflash: Most fellow so-called minorities are just as homophobic if not more-so than anyone else. The only time they pay attention to gays [correction: pretend they care] is when they need $$$ or a vote turns out to be very close and then every 'progressive' vote counts.

  15. Jason, Obama didn't turn the economy into a basket-case. Bush did that. Obama just made it worse. I'll agree that he is a very disappointing "fierce advocate."

    Little Kiwi brings up daddy issues in two comments and racism in one. Completely acrid and off topic as usual. Dude needs some meds.

  16. MORE has been done for Gay Rights during the Obama administration than ANY time in history. Period! The Gay Community had better get behind this man or you will all end up with the sad excuses from the Republican party. STOP this bashing of the President!

    Posted by: Jim | Jan 24, 2012 11:46:21 PM

  17. ratbastard well then white working class males will be left as orphans since the latest polls show them totally turned off by the repubs

    Anyway; your observation is a false one. In fact I could make an argument that a large part of the reason obama is center right economicaly (even Reaganesque, the real reagan of history who could never make it as a repub today not the zombie reagan myth) because he is trying to fulfill some subconscious need for approval from white males

    Posted by: say what | Jan 24, 2012 11:55:18 PM

  18. You can tell how effective Obama was by watching the squirming of the Repubs, just like the squirming of Repub Jason here.

  19. Seriously Kiwi. We get it. You have daddy issues. Stop projecting onto other people.

    Posted by: Markus | Jan 25, 2012 12:53:30 AM

  20. Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing for the gays.

  21. video not showing..?

    Posted by: jameel | Jan 25, 2012 1:40:01 AM

  22. M scott

    yeah , having an openly gay military man sitting in the First Lady's box is totally nothing .

    It has always been done and doesn't signify the repeal of DADT at all

    Nothing what so ever

    (snark tag) in case you are snark impaired

    Posted by: say what | Jan 25, 2012 1:49:43 AM

  23. SAY WHAT: "Snark Tag" - can anyone use that, or have you copywrited it?

    Posted by: TJ | Jan 25, 2012 2:25:59 AM

  24. MARKUS: Um, I don't think that daddy issues are KIWI's problem. But the indication I'm getting that the message is getting lost might be worth looking into (hint hint KIWI).

    Posted by: TJ | Jan 25, 2012 2:30:25 AM

  25. Lets not forget President Obama made it possible for the LGBT community to visit their sick or ill partners in the hospital without familys permission. Thank you President Obama.

    If it wasn't for this President we would be still waiting outside in the waiting room area begging the nurse to let us in.
