You couldn't be more wrong ["Great Expectations," April]. Not only is Barack Obama not in favor of gay rights, he's in favor of watering down a whole bunch of existing rights and privileges, such as the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, as well as the expectation of the people of this nation to be able to work and succeed without being punished. The gay rights agenda is just another tent of the Democratic Party, something in which I am not at all interested. Who needs gay rights if we're disarmed and impoverished by the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, whose sole claim to success is "We're not Bush"?
This administration is not just homophobic, it's also misogynistic. Even with a few gay hires (note that none are in the cabinet), there is only one woman among them. Now that's change I'm still not seein'.
I'm sure glad Joe Solmonese is enjoying the new D.C.--sounds like the old one to me. Don't let yourself be so impressed by limited access, Joe. You're being used. Nothing will come from this administration. What have you missed since November 5?
