As we all have heard, there were some major Democratic losses and some major LGBT gains. I can’t help but notice though, that the blame game is in full-swing.
DailyKos blames the loss on racism aimed at the White House.
A Washington Post poll blames Barack Obama.
Obama blames himself.
Mark Morford blames Whiny, Young Democrats
Howard Kurtz of the Daily Beast blames the Media.
Katie Couric blames Obama, the economy and unemployment.
It’s intelligent to analyze what went wrong and how to do things differently, but being as we are a community with very little patience when it comes to our rights, let’s try to move on quickly and figure out what to do next.
What we do know is that 106 LGBT candidates are now holding elected positions after yesterday. What we do know is that 10 years ago, that would not have happened. What we also know is that we are talking about equality in unprecedented numbers and that is how we have come as far as we have.
