incomplete reactions

Mr. Obama gave his address today to the LGBT community. I've read through it once; it sounds okay, but as everyone here should know, I don't give a rat's ass what you say until and unless it actually produces action, which so far, Mr. Obama has not done. Dan Savage is mostly holding off on comment until tomorrow, except for a first-read reaction of, "I'm not sure we should be applauding the president for passing the buck, however eloquently he is while he does so." Pam at Pam's House Blend is not impressed because of the contradictions between his speech tonight and Mr. Gibbs in the press briefing earlier in the afternoon. (For example: in his speech, he claims he's working with the Pentagon on DADT; Mr. Gibbs earlier had said Mr. Obama hadn't been involved in any meetings.)

So that's that, so far. The first link (...and also the second) contains the full text of the address, so read it for yourself.
