How much longer do we give Obama the benefit of the doubt?

President Obama has been noticeably silent when the Iowa Supreme Court overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage as well as the legislative decisions in Maine and New Hampshire regarding equal marriage.
Mr. Obama’s new global health initiative has infuriated many health advocates who say he is not financing AIDS programs generously enough.
While the president has strongly urged Congress to pass a hate crimes bill, a high priority for gay people, he has canceled delayed action on one of his key campaign promises, repealing the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” rule.
Many are still fuming over his choice of the radical cleric Rick Warren, the evangelical pastor who opposes same-sex marriage, to deliver the invocation at his inaugural.

Lap Dog Joe Solmonese of the HRC meet Monday with top low level officials, including Jim Messina, Mr. Obama’s deputy chief of staff, to plot legislative strategy on the hate crimes bill as well as “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Afterwards Joe Solmonese said that the gay rights agenda might not be “unfolding exactly as we thought.”
