President Obama at Int'l Women's Day praises our "gay and lesbian brothers and sisters"
President Obama "The story of America over the past 200 years -- past 233 years is one of laws becoming more just, of a people becoming more equal, of a union being perfected. It’s a story of captives being set free and a movement to fulfill the promise of that freedom. It’s a story of waves of weary travelers reconsecrating America as a nation of immigrants. It’s a story of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters making the most of that most American of demands –- to be treated the same as everybody else. And it’s a story of women, from those on the Mayflower to the one I’m blessed to call my wife, who looked across the dinner table, and thought, I’m smarter than that guy."

Following Mrs. Obama as only a brilliant orator could, President Obama captured the spirit of International Women's Day as he adoringly spoke of his wife and what incredible sacrifices and contributions have been made to bring Womankind to where we are now in society.
Suddenly my chest swelled with pride and I stood and applauded as our president proud of our efforts included LGBT people in his woman's day remarks! God, I am so proud to have Mrs. and Mr. Obama guiding our country.
