69. Nobody is saying that. But the candidates are making it very clear what their priorities are...

 

Because he does not like gay people? C'mon.
Nobody is saying that. But the candidates are making it very clear what their priorities are, and they are being given multiple opportunities to do so. These are fair observations, not accusations.

This is ridiculous. He was helping LGBTQ long long ago in his state.
It saddens me to see any politician with a perfunctory attitude about these things. I hate it when it's treated as just one more thing on a long "to-do" list... something to "get it over with" so that he (or she) won't have to bother with it again for as long as possible.

And even then, after it's done once, or said once, the politician and his (or her) followers can always point to that ONE TIME that he (or she) did, or said something in support of said-group.

Maybe it is all the bad things he says about gay people? WTF?
At this critical juncture, I think that it will be a mistake for any candidate to shun (or "not have time for'') our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, children, parents and loved ones.

It's not like anyone is being accused of being a bigot or hating the community... but everyone IS correct in pointing out that this is a very clear indicator of what a candidate's priorities are and where the LGBTQ community (and its issues) fall in the candidate's order of importance.

I think it would be weak sauce if the sum-total of a candidate's LGBTQ advocacy and support be limited to his (or her) one time appearance at a Pride Event.

All I'm trying to say is that this really isn't a one-and-done kind of thing, is it?

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
