    It annoys me to no end, how politicians will make pretty speeches — and do absolutely nothing else — and call it “leadership.” Worse are the slathering sheeple who buy it.

    i hate statements like this ughh not only is it grossly offensive to all of the other oppressed people in America but same sex marriage isn’t even the most important issue for LGB americans!

    JMC:
    It is true not every one wants to get married. The important thing is not whether you want to marry but whether you can marry if you want to. In other words, it is about equality.

    The sitting Vice President of the United States of America is speaking out on our behalf and somehow people on here still find fault. I hope I never meet any of the complainers in person because you must be miserable to be around.

    If Biden said it, it must be a gaffe.

    But Democrats have committed most of the discrimination against gays. It was Dems who signed DOMA and DADT into law. It was Dems who denied gays the right to sue their government for discrimination.

    And while Dems are trying to grab the glory, most of the gains for gay rights over the decades have been achieved by gays and gays alone. Heterosexual glory-grabbers are just waking up to gay rights after willful ignorance for years and years.

    Kev C: Please educate yourself. DOMA was passed by both houses of Congress, which were both Republican-controlled. It was veto-proof.

    Your life must be remarkable if you never have to make a sacrifice for the greater good. But, the rest of us sometimes are forced to make compromises. There was nothing to be gained by having President Clinton veto DOMA just a few weeks before the election.

    But Bill Clinton didn’t veto it. He signed it into law. His John Hancock tells the world that he endorses laws against gays. And nearly 2 decades later it hasn’t been repealed. That’s Dems for you.

    But..but..but the republicans made me sign it. Wake up and realize the Dems have always been more harmful to gays than anyone else.
