Do they even care about civil rights, or just money and votes?

Kos has a good round-up of reaction in the gay blogger community to the Obama administrations's latest evidence of not "getting it."

Michelangelo Signorile:

Scrambling to do damage control re: the DOMA brief the Obama administration is throwing us a pathetic bone.

John Aravosis:

So, because of Obama's inaction on his main presidential campaign promises to our community - DOMA and DADT - we have a scenario in which gays will get fewer benefits than their straight colleagues, and some gay federal employees will get benefits (civilians) while others (military) will not. See how complicated it gets to do anything when you fail to keep your basic promises?

This is just NOT good. Very disappointing and disillusioning.
