“Yes, it’s a much-needed advance for the country. Obama has done a lot [for LGBTs], but he hasn’t done enough. I understand the frustration of the LGBT community. They should have the same rights as everyone else. But I don’t think Obama will do it because he sees it as a minor issue.”

“Yes. If it has any impact on his re-election bid, it would be negligible. And the executive order will create a friendlier workplace for everyone. It’s sad that we even need it. But discrimination still exists in society.”

“Yes. It’s his job. He’s the president. Everyone should have equal rights. The activists should keep pushing Obama. It won’t hurt his re-election bid. If anything, it will help him. He’ll get more support from the LGBT community.”

“No. Obama inherited a big mess that he’s trying to clean up. And Congress is really on his back. His plate is full. I say give the man more time. He’s for LGBT rights. But there’s only so much he can do. Was Rome built in a day?”
