“You have to be totally operating on blind faith if you believe that President Obama and his team cannot make a difference. Tragically if we lose closely, that defeat almost can be laid at the steps of the White House for their refusal to stand by our side in the battle for freedom. The Holder remark basically gave those Obama supporters and non-white voters permission to vote against our freedom. The Attorney General let them know that Obama didn’t care one way or another so why should those voters change their votes? He gave their votes respectability which was devastating for our side.
“The failure of our national organizations to obtain a clear cut endorsement for the LGBT community is something that needs to be discussed. This one isn’t rocket science. What happened?
“We certainly know by the president’s repeated visits to Virginia, New York and New Jersey that he at least had time to issue a tough statement against this form of ballot box bigotry. What they did and failed to do these past weeks, whether we win or lose tonight, is just tragic, sad and unconscionable.” – Activist and National Equality March co-founder David Mixner, saying that President Obama will be partially to blame for any losses in today’s anti-gay ballot measures.
