Am I forgetting anyone...?

President Obama gave a speech attempting to rally some of the folks who helped elect him to get their butts back to the polls for the 2010 midterms.

In the money quote, he urges:

“young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again.”

While Drudge is headlining this as “OBAMA PLAYS RACE CARD”, that's not the first thing that came to my mind...

I see no mention of the homosexual community. Not a peep about teh gayz. Odd, when you consider the support they showed Obama and Co. in the 2008 elections, no?

No. He screwed them. They know it, and clearly he knows it.

Wonder how many of them who voted for him will do the smart thing and vote against his cronies in November? Here's hoping the answer is "All of them."

This is always the case in the political arena. Politicians are trying to persuade people to take part in the success of their political party by voting for them. Whether they have served the citizenry or not, their concern is to let them go back to the position. Obama too has that inclination: to ask people for their support during the election. I'm just wondering too that he did not mention the homosexual community. Did he intend to forget them? We do not know. Nelson, such is a very good observation. I know, this group of people supported the president during presidential election.
