Obama Gave AIDS Prevention Efforts $4 Billion And all He Got Was This Lousy Heckling

Following the Democratic fundraiser heckling last month, President Obama was treated to another round of AIDS activists interrupting his prepared remarks, this time at a speech in Connecticut to drum up support for Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal. "Excuse me, excuse me young people," Obama told the zappers. "You've been appearing at every rally we've been doing. And we're funding global AIDS and the other side is not, so I don't know why you think this is a useful strategy to take." So there!, says the guy sending another four billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It's like Tea Party activists who hate on Obama for his taxation, and have absolutely no idea he actually granted tax breaks to 95 percent of Americans.

Can Rahm Emanuel win mayor’s race with serious heckling?

It looks like Rahm is seriously considering a run for Chicago’s mayor. I have news for him. The LGBT community is no friend to those who advise a President to throw us under the bus. I hope he hasn’t miscalculated that the LGBT community will support him. When deciding to run for Chicago’s mayor, he had better realize we know he has been no friend to us, and he’d better be ready to hear catcalls and chants about the failure to follow through on the specific promises to our community to end DADT, DOMA and pass ENDA.

Oh, and Rahm, the gAyTM is “out of service.” You can’t expect the gAyTM to keep working when our civil rights problems aren’t addressed.
