1. My friend, you are either beyond clueless or are a plant on DU.

Your attacks on President Obama are incessant. Your "facts" are decidely twisted. you MUST realize that an EO is absolutely the worst and most counterproductive action that President Obama can take to improve gay rights? If President Obama signs an EO, republicans have an instant and powerful club to beat President Obama and Congressional democrats with all the way to November elections, defeating some or many of them in the process. If President Obama takes a kleenex from a subordinate to blow his nose, republicans accuse him of abuse of power and intimidation. What do you think republicans will say if President Obama bypasses Congress by signing an EO? Republican governors will immediately refuse to implement it in their states, republican AFs will sue setting up the rightwing Supreme Court for more activism, every republican talking head will be screaming about the imperial Presidency and failure to listen to the american people. Full rights for gay people simply is the right and moral end goal of any civilized society, but making the path to that end harder with ill advised political actions serves no purpose but to embolden and strengthen republicans. I feel that you fully know that the last point that I made would be the end result of an EO, yet you relentlessly weigh forward on DU seeking to damage and destroy our President and democrats in general. Can you bash a republican ONCE? Can you?
