Thomas Roberts Talks to HRC's Joe Solmonese About Obama's Next LGBT Steps: VIDEO


Thomas Roberts asks HRC and Obama campaign co-chair Joe Solmonese what the LGBT community will want from Obama if he wins the 2012 election. Solmonese emphasizes contrasts between Obama and Romney on the issues, and then suggests repeal of DOMA and passage of ENDA are next on the list, but suggests a more pro-LGBT Congress is needed to move both along.

  1. I'm not sure if we should start picking out the drapes before the votes are in. Our goal should be getting him re-elected not planning out his next term.

  2. He should have been pushing Obama to make the Executive Orders on some of these issues. I get that Obama wants to feel like he has more bi-partisan support to move forward, but he's never going to get it. The left and right are miles apart on these issues and aren't going to budge anytime soon. Obama should be more pro-active on these issues, and Solmonese should have been tougher to lobby for real change. HRC has had little to no effect on ANY of the positive action that's happened in this first term, but they are great for taking the credit and raising money at posh fundraisers. Can't wait to see the back of this guy when he steps down... hopefully Chad Griffin will steer HRC into tougher waters.

  3. Greed - its Imperative to OUR Very RIGHTs as American citizens to get him re-elected

  4. I think we're on the way to a republican congress and senate this election cycle and Obama's chances right now of getting re-elected aren't looking that hopeful
