Sirius OutQ host Michelangelo Signorile and Log Cabin Republicans' Charles Moran faced off on CNN. At issue: Is President Barack Obama living up to his campaign promise to be a "fierce advocate for gays and lesbians"?
Obviously someone is writing material for Moran who quipped: "The most we've gotten is a little bit of a circuit party with a Madonna remix in the East Room of the White House."
But the most interesting comment came from CNN anchor Don Lemon, who is from Chicago, anchored at the NBC O&O station where we worked for a number of years, and, was very well connected to the Obama campaign. Lemon wrapped the segment by saying: "Political insiders say the issues you're talking about, especially when it comes to gay rights, that those are second-term issues. They want to make sure he gets a second term, and then he will do that. In the meantime, a lot of people are waiting for him to overturn or do some things when it comes to the campaign, the promises he made."
In June, Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry suggested some of the Obama Administration's LGBT legislative goals would be second term priorities.
Watch, WHEN YOU JUMP. Oh and do "political insiders" say these "second term issues" would come before or after the 2014 midterm elections? Just curious ...
