10. Obama says he thinks African Americans and the LGBT community should stand together
for equal rights. But the closest he's willing to stand to the LGBT community is 50 yards behind us. He doesn't support full equality for LGBT Americans, the furthest he's willing to go is to work for a "basic set of rights". I don't want a basic set of rights, I want 100% full equality. How hard is that for Obama, Clinton, and Edwards to understand?

The sooner the Obamanauts understand that many people who don't support Obama also don't support Clinton or Edwards, the sooner they will return to reality.
