i met pres. obama here and prague and got to shake his hand. at the point it was an amazing feeling...still high on post election hopes. first lady was just as amazing of a person also when i met her here in prague...however, now i feel a bit let down to say the least. i am tired of teh gay community being a place that politicians, including pres. obama, run to when they want to appear progressive and especially when they want our vote, but when the reality of everyday politics sits in, they and he go back to bed with the conservative Christian right. if they don't get back in bed with them they at least always seem to sacrifice the rights of the few (GLBT) for the "good" of the many. i like the president and was excited to meet him, but i for one and damn tired of being sacrificed for the good of the many. to hell with the good of the many...what about the good of the GLBT community? sacrifice the good of the many and give the few (GLBT community) our rights and then i will believe you mr. president.
