The DoD FB was trying to pimp this event....it got ugly, as does all things they do with regard to Obama. I can promise you the military is NOT buying what they are selling.

So it's someone elses fault if I turn away all the minorities and gender benders if I have a publicly funded function at my house?

These people and the frickin media are more twisted, bizarre, and strung out on ego than Charlie Sheen.

“...the Administration is moving forward with the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ quickly and efficiently,” she said. “However, it still remains the law.”

well, HELL.......the administration has broken so many damned laws, it’s a wonder they can keep UP with them.....Why do they “remember” DADT is still in affect, when they don’t “remember” the POTUS is supposed to be Constitutionally eligible!?

“The President has been crystal clear that the Administration is moving forward with the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ quickly and efficiently,” she said. “However, it still remains the law. The White House, including the First Lady and Dr. Biden, look forward to working with the families of gay and lesbian service members after certification occurs and repeal goes into effect.”

You have entered a homo free zone, sorry.

I am soooo glad I am retired so I don’t have to support this “it’s OK if you’re in the military and pack the fudge” insanity.

I would now doubt have been called in on the carpet repeatedly for my steadfast refusal to acknowledge the sodomites in my Army.

"Yet our thousands of gay military families are shut out from being represented today because of nothing but lingering political homophobia.

Are there really THOUSANDS of gay military families?

I though Michelle might have been worried her hubby might run off to listen to cowboy poetry and have some pudding during the event if there was some competition there?

Dr Biden only recently discovered his newly found intellectual and professional title when he got an honorary birth certificate from Hawaii. The state though it would be a nice gesture to make him an Honorary Doctor in the state, with all the work he did on the new healthcare legislation.

Biden is also the only known doctor to have been so as the recipient of the birth certificate and as the attending physician!

Advice for the lefty whiners: Get used to it.

Obama has announced his intent to run for re-election in 2012.

Look for him to hold his nose and pretend that he honors American servicemen and women; look for him to pretend that he respects the American flag and the Constitution and all that they represent; and look for him to pretend that he cares about little things like American laws and traditions and freedoms.

In other words, for all of those Obama-butt-kissing leftist sycophants out there, in cities and towns and universities across the nation as well as in the MSM, you need to be prepared to “take one for the team” between now and election day, as he pretends to toss you under the bus, even though deep down inside he's the same America-hating fellow traveler that he has always been (the one that causes that tingling in your, um, leg).

Doctorate in Education from the University of Delaware

Los Angeles Times story pointed out that Jill Biden, who holds a doctorate in education, prefers to be called “Dr. Biden.”

In my neck of the woods, unless the PhD is a degree in HARD SCIENCE, it is barely worth the paper it’s printed on.

Other’s mileage may vary, however.

Isn't there a bank she should be bilking somewhere?

I was unaware that the Amtrak station master had a Phd in his family. Isn't she a little above his pay grade? Does her Phd mean she gets to ride in the limosenes and he doesn't?

I sure do miss Joe's shark jumpin senate hearings!

Dear Minority Group Members -

Do you get it now?

Obama is NOT one of you. He never was. He never will be one of you.

He will be dismissive of your wants, hopes, and desires while still expecting you to vote for him and cheer him on. If you dare to talk back, you will be labeled racist or worse, a sell-out.

Can you finally, do something for your own self-interest and survival and vote against this ego maniac?

The Obama White House and Administration have so many communists/marxists/socialists, crooks, cronies, child pedophilia supporters (re NAMBLA), incompetents, liars, and spindoctors that you would think that they would welcome some people who actually want to serve their country.

Oh, I forgot. Outspoken patriots are not welcome at Obie’s affairs. Neither is the American flag (until called out on it).

Just another day in Obama’s America, and we cannot stop crying about it.

Homosexuals can never be a part of anything without putting ‘gay’ in front of it and the most important part of whatever it is. That’s what outs homosexuality as nothing more than a serious neurosis.

Gay and lesbian military families should not have to fight this hard just to stand in the back of the room in 2011.

These queer MFs should not even be allowed in the room, IMHO. They need to STFU and sit down.

I seriously doubt it. Probably not even hundreds, maybe there are but thousands? Doubtful. Remember, this is the same bunch that overinflated their numbers to 10% of the population when in reality, they probably represent at best 2% to 5%.

Never understood these moves. From a purely political standpoint it just makes no sense. The right won’t give him any points for it because they know he is all for gays in the armed forces, which is way more important than gays at a picnic, and the left will only get mad.

It is almost like this guy is trying to lose his first term so he can get out and start cashing in on those speaking fees and board of director seats.

But the ruling class in the GOP also pulls similar crap on the right, e.g. compassionate conservatism. This is why the Tea Party movement needs to take over the GOP. RINO socialism light is economic suicide, and going third paty is political suicide.

Budget tricks helped Obama save programs from cuts (spending cuts exaggerated)

No, there are a lot more Blacks and Latinos who abhor most homosexuals than gays.

Gays are loud, but Obama is bisexual, and realizes most people think the “gay rights” issue is dead as there is no civil right denied a homosexual, other than marriage, which, by definition is a religious term for man and woman...and in some states, they can marry.

Obama is always trying to win votes.

That’s what outs homosexuality as nothing more than a serious neurosis.

The psychiatrists had it right, back in the day 40 years ago; that's why the homosexuals mugged them first.

The movement gays are slowly but surely proving all the old shrinks right, whose research was stopped dead when the homocabalists took over psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy (the three different APA's).

I still can't quite figure out what the White House's play was here.

"Chewy" -- lol!! Damn, that's mean! But then, that's a mean woman ..... and she advertises, showing off her biceps all the time, trying to intimidate the other women would be my guess. "Gaze upon my pythons and tremble!!"

Is there at least one person in Washington politics who's family thrives in some discipline or industry which does not exist off of the peoples taxes?

Is there any royalty in Washington that manufactures some sort of goods or services which includes a payroll which has to pay taxes?

Ross Perot was correct about the giant sucking sound. It's not the Mexicans or NAFTA though. It's government employment.
