Every time I watch this, I can’t help but laugh.

This is great, however lets remember Bill Clinton ALSO attended that shindig and we all know what he did to the gay community.
To the thousands of people planning on marching in Washington, WTFBLOG thinks you are AWESOME!
On the eve of the National Equality March this Saturday, President Obama will speak at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner in Washington D.C.:
“Mr. Obama’s appearance on Saturday at the annual dinner for the Human Rights Campaign, a leading gay rights advocacy group, represents a significant show of support for gay rights at a time when many prominent gay and lesbian activists have been questioning the president’s commitment to their issues…While it remains to be seen what Mr. Obama’s appearance at the dinner will do to his standing in the eyes of gay rights activists, his speech may mollify some of their concerns. His appearance will mark only the second time a sitting president has spoken to the Human Rights Campaign. The first time was more in 1997 when Bill Clinton spoke to the group. That was the first time a sitting president had ever addressed a gay rights organization. A person with knowledge of Mr. Obama’s plans confirmed his appearance at the dinner. But this person spoke on the condition of anonymity because a formal announcement is expected later today.”
The following day, thousands will march in D.C. demanding that Obama fulfill his campaign promises.
I certainly hope Obama has some big news or additional plans for the following day because choosing the black tie dinner over the grassroots march certainly won’t garner him much respect unless he does.
