Barack Obama is doing well with 90% or more of Democrats so the White House views this opposition as really part of the Internet left fringe.There are times when "gay" doesn't mean "happy," and they're definitely not happy about this little backhanded insult. (Did the "Internet left fringe" remark refer to Andrew Sullivan?)
Another Black Conservative hopes this a wake-up call to gays, who have apparently been so happy riding on the back of Obama's magic bus:
Perhaps things will start to come into focus for everyone that the disdain this White House has for Fox News and Tea Parties really isn’t the story. The truth is this White House has a problem with opposition in general.To which Pundette adds:
Obama resents "chatter," a.k.a, criticism of Obama, from any source. We knew about this intolerance for dissent before the election but unfortunately no one on the Left wanted to pay attention.Wouldn't it be a kick in the head if the gay-rights radicals joined Gay Patriot and conservative lesbians like Cynthia Yockey in supporting the Tea Party movement? Honestly, who treats people with more respect, Glenn Beck or Barack Obama?
