Tally’s response (see comments):

People always think they’re taking the higher ground… then they look ahead and see Obama is already standing on it.”

** President Obama will sign the repeal of DADT on Wednesday at 9:15 a.m. during a ceremony at the Interior Dept **

    And this is why I could never be President. I wouldn’t want to be even the same room as Choi.

    I bet Dan Choi being the famewhore he publicly decline and bash Obama about the bill not being good enough.

      I really hope he doesn’t. It will ridicule him.

      “I bet Dan Choi being the famewhore he publicly decline…”

      I wish he would decline just so we don’t have to see his ugly mug in any photo especially since this ceremony will be preserved for posterity!!!

    Dan Choi won’t act up. He’ll be just like the other smack talkers – he doesn’t have the guts to talk smack to Obama’s face. He won’t get the chance to make a scene either. There will be a ton of people at the signing.

    As I said on BWD’S blog, it may sounds cheezy but there’s no other way to put it: President Obama is fighting hate with love, and fighting darkness with light. Not only he wants to rebuild America, he wants to heal it. Let’s never forget his heroes are Ghandi and MLK. People who call him weak don’t get it. At all.

      Not cheesy at all, it’s absolutely true – BRILLIANT comment 😉

      You’re so right. He’s a better human being than I am. Maybe one day, I can reach that pinnacle. God blessed him already!

      I agree with your perceptions, they are mine as well.

      “Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.” I don’t know who to attribute this quote to, however, it reminds me of our President’s strength of character.

    A supreme example of why my President remains a better person than me. I love him.

      Ain’t the truth. I try to be a good person, but there is no way that I would respond the way that President Obama does to some of the crap thrown at him. I would have to resist the tempatation to go off just once.

    WOW you guys are so amazing I guess that’s why I have started to begin my day here and end it here. It has made me a more tolerant citizen to those that don’t get it. What a wonderful collection of inspiration
