Captive Audience

Dear Mr. President,

You know there’s no way in hell I am going to vote for a Republican, so you think you can take my vote for granted?

Throw the gays a bone – say that you’re going to extend federal benefits to partners – but oh, DOMA says you can’t offer them health or retirement benefits.

And the justice dept doesn’t have a problem with the constitutionality of DOMA?

Eff you, and your little dog too.

  1. Very well said!

  2. Yup. I can’t bring myself to vote for a Republican, but I can sure as hell stay home.

  3. Yup. After the McClurkin debacle I was afraid this was what we had in store.

  4. yeah, that!

  5. I totally agree, except for the part about Bo. Bo is innocent.

    I couldn’t believe that the benefits extended did not include health or retirement benefits. What other benefits are there? Seriously!

    I’m livid about the brief. The administration did NOT need to go there and they chose to do so. Maybe Obama thinks he has our votes locked in, but he doesn’t have our money and that’s where our affluent brothers and sisters need to hit him. (And who knows? The Republicans may take a page from Meghan McCain and in keeping with their “govt stay out of our lives” philosophy, drop some of their socially conservative stances and support same-sex marriage. That’d sure be interesting. I don’t know how likely it is.)

  6. I may have misheard on Countdown last night, but doesn’t Congress have to repeal DOMA? I didn’t think the President could unilaterally get rid of that bill. If that’s not the case, then I’m equally pissed off. Must go research that…
