Anybody else see this editorial, A Bad Call for Gay Rights, tucked away at the back of this morning’s New York Times? Let’s just say it is not a positive view on how the president is handling gay issues. It ends:
But busy calendars and political expediency are no excuse for making one group of Americans wait any longer for equal rights.
While I am not the biggest advocate in the world for marriage of any sort, I can’t help but wonder why the president seems to have done little to nothing (that I can tell) for a population that he so directly courted and still spares few opportunities to mention in an inclusive manner. I cannot imagine the stress and challenges President Obama faces; then again, I did not run for president.
Perhaps taking action is scheduled for later?
