Carney: No list of LGBT promises for 2012 election
from the Washington Blade

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday he doesnt expect President Obama to issue a list of promises to the LGBT community as part of his re-election campaign as he did during the 2008 election season.

During a news conference, Carney made the remarks in response to a question from the Washington Blade on whether Obama would publish a list of objectives he wanted to achieve for the LGBT community during the second term of his administration.

Well, I dont anticipate reissuing a list, Carney said. I think his position on a number of issues has been clear and his accomplishments on a number of issues have been clear. So as is true with a number of the goals he set forward during his campaign and in the first two-plus years of his administration, he remains those that are unfinished.

Carney noted the president has been saying a lot lately we still have a lot of work to do, and were not done yet and maintained Obama will remain committed to a number of policy objectives that havent been achieved yet.

3. Not Surprised
If this election wasn't so critical--and make no mistake, it is--I would boycott it. Obama knows we have no options and he has learned that it's better to say nothing than to make promises he has no intention of keeping. I'm not dumb enough to think he wants to do diddly for us. He wants our votes...he doesn't give a damn about our issues.
