Gays set back their own agenda

If several raised fingers are any indication, some LGBT activists who visited the White House last week are fully evolved on what they think of President Ronald Reagan.

In a photo, removed from her Facebook page Friday afternoon (but posted here by the Philly Post), Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss is pictured waving two middle fingers at Reagan's presidential portrait. She did, at least, have the courtesy to tag Reagan in the photo.

Strauss joined Matty Hart, national director of public engagement at Solutions for Progress, in using the White House's 2012 LGBT pride reception to express his distaste for the late Republican president. On Friday, Hart posted a similar photo on Facebook, accompanied by a certain four-letter word and the ex-commander in chief's last name. source

No. The opposing team is feigning anger, as they always do. They've shown multiple times during this presidency that they have no respect for the office of President of the US. Where is the outrage when Obama was interrupted? Accused of lying? When Jan Breur got in his face like she was his mother? It's not just one time, it's over and over and over again.

That is where you are wrong sean...I am on that opposing team, and this pisses me off.

Bush had to put up with jackass organizations like code pink being disruptive and downright disrespectful...not once did the media stand up for him, and neither did you.

sean_renaud said almost 3 years ago ...

No he didn't and yes the media did stand up for him. Were you completely absent when he got a shoe thrown at him? America, all of us, stood up and cheered that he was pretty fly for a white guy and that was all. There was no "I wish he got hit". Because he was the president and when all was said and done we supported him. And yes the media did stand up for him. Go google Bush shoe. And after that be silent. Bush dodged a shoe. Obama killed Osama. Bush got love from everybody in the country for it Obama got scorn from 50% of the country.

d6fer said almost 3 years ago ...

Obama got his props for getting Osama....just like Bush 41 got his for kicking Saddams ass back to bagdad....but as you know those kind of things don't always result in immunity for the rest of policy.

Obama's problem is the people he chooses to surround himself.....he is surrounded by crooked anti-American leftists.

sean_renaud said almost 3 years ago ...

Obama did not get his props from the right for getting Osama. And I'd forgotten about Saddam but he actually went down before Bush stopped being popular so I'm not sure that counts.

d6fer said almost 3 years ago ...

I have heard Sean Hannity give Obama his props on Osama! does it get anymore right wing than that?

sean_renaud said almost 3 years ago ...

Link? Cus all I remember hearing from the right wing was at best kinda sorta congratulatory. This isn't cheer leading Obama. Sure they aren't denying him credit but this should have been a fuck yeah moment. Like I said, Bush dodged a shoe and for a few weeks he could do no wrong. That's all it took. because Dems simply don't have the same level of completely irrational hatered that the Reps do.

d6fer said almost 3 years ago ...

so it wasn't enthusiastic enough for you? What were you expecting? Chants of "4 more years" by Rush Limbaugh and fox news?

sean_renaud said almost 3 years ago ...

No. I don't expect integrity from Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. That would be stupid. Nobody was chanting four more years for Bush/McCain either at the time. They were just, "Bush kicks ass" for a couple of days. Compare and contrast with Osama where before Obama is even mentioned they start in praising Bush and his interrogation techniques. The closest to complimentry they got was "at least he didn't use a drone."

d6fer said almost 3 years ago ...

You didn't hear it because you weren't listening to them.....I'm sure Obama got his dick sucked real good on MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, The NY Times, and nearly every other dead fish wrapper in this country....I witnessed people on the right giving him more kudos than I was even comfortable with.

sean_renaud said almost 3 years ago ...

Feel free to provide me with some links to this stuff.

d6fer said almost 3 years ago ...

I had to scroll up to see what this post was about....we've gone from Obama cohorts behaving badly, to Obama supporters crying over his lack of cred....just like Obama cries over it.

sean_renaud said almost 3 years ago ...

Because he doesn't take the time to spike the football. He's really bad at that.

As for the core point the core point is nobody who's truly upset that someone flipped off a painting was gonna vote for Obama in the first place and they likely weren't supporters of the gay community to begin with. Everybody else sees some hooligans behaving poorly and not an outright act of war.
