Political Pander of the Day

One or two people booed a gay soldier who appeared on video at a recent GOP debate.  That was all it took for Obama to turn the event into a GOP gay-bash and to demagogue the issue ever since then.  Last night he did it again while speaking to some LGBTC (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered, confused) group and tried to make it sound like he was the great defender of the American fighting men and women.  Apparently Obama thinks the debate should have been stopped and every candidate required to make an abject apology to the gay guy because a couple of idiots in the audience made a comment.

I found this quote interesting:
“You want to be commander in chief,” the president said, drawing cheers, “you can start by standing up for the men and women who wear the uniform of the United States, even when it’s not politically convenient.”
So, based on Obama's own logic, President Bush should have stood up for the Army guards at Abu Ghraib prison.

Logic can be very inconvenient.
