JOHN ARAVOSIS: White House admits Obama “benefits” speech simply political ploy, plan still being created after it was already announced.

Plus, this: “The obsession with not repeating the mistakes of 1993 has resulted in a huge mistake in 2009. Somehow, despite all the progress and the massive shift in public opinion on gay issues since the early 90s, at the White House, the conventional wisdom on gay-related issues has been dialed back to 1993. . . . They only decided it was a problem when the gay ATM started to shut down.” Hope and change!
