Obama Helping One Gay at a Time


Are you one of those people who isn’t completely satisfied with the way President Obama is taking his sweet time repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the Defense of Marriage Act? Almost as if he’ll get to them when he has some spare time, or when nothing else important is going on, both of which will never happen? Well, turn that frown upside-down! Because Obama does care about helping gay people — specifically, gay person David Huebner. Just days before Obama speaks before the Human Rights Campaign, the White House has announced that the lawyer for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination Defamation will soon become the ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa. Which is great, for David Huebner.
