The pink tide has turned in Obamas favor.
After months of challenging interactions with his gay base, which included heckling from gay protestors at events and a drop in contributions from the community, Obama is back on track with LGBT voters.
The reversal, which took successfully repealing DADT and an administrative abandonment of the Defense of Marriage Act, which he ruled unconstitutional, has put Obama back on the gay radar as a positive force for the community.
As a bisexual man who doesnt hook up with guys, and having a brother who is gay, I have the good fortune of speaking to affluent members of the gay community, mostly in New York. Circa 2010, phrases I heard about Obama included, Hes not even a blip on the radar anymore. Nobody talks about him, as well as, You know, its actually becoming trendy to be a Republican.
I know: a group of gay east coast Republicans could have been a sign of the end times, and a description that woud have fit rather nicely into Bill Murrays dogs and cats living together speech, towards the final scene of Ghostbusters. Yet it very well could have happened, had Obama nixed his on my watch commitments to the gay community in favor of the status quo.
Obama is moving in the right direction towards same-sex marriage being nationally recognized and socially accepted. What would you say, its five years out, maybe 10? Unless we totally regress and allow a Palin, Pawlenty or Huckabee presidency. Gay voters are not wont to let this occur.
“Means his wife doesn’t allow him a guy’s night out!”
Means his wife doesn’t allow him a gay’s night out!
My gaydar is pretty accurate, but my lesbian-dar needs work.
“He watches Anderson Cooper 360° with his pants around his ankles.”
Ha, Ha! Good One! That’s the kind of responses I’m looking for!
You will need to power wash that board when they leave!

Haven’t I read somewhere that the Obama’s “personal trainer” is flown in from Illinois once a week? Hmmmmmm....do you think it might be one of the pretty boys from Rahm and Barry’s bathhouse.
To: SoCal SoCon
It means hes attracted to both sexes but only hooks up with women.
He only hooks up with women and bull-yikes?
Actually “Man’s Country” is the gay club that Obama and Rahm Emanuel used to frequent in the early 2000s. Allegedly.
