President Obama said Wednesday that he doesn’t think the “disillusionment” that some LGBT people have for his administration thus far is “justified.” He also refused to say whether he believes “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is unconstitutional. And he said he has a strategy for getting the military ban on gays repealed in the lame-duck session.
The remarks came during a 45-minute group interview Oct. 27 with a group of five progressive bloggers. Only one of the five was gay: Joe Sudbay, who blogs at americablog.com. The interview took place in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, a daily meeting room next to the Oval Office.
