The Wrap-Up: May 10, 2012

In case you've been hiding in a cave since yesterday, President Obama said this.

Another former legislator from the GOP is stating how the party has become increasingly extreme.

After President Obama's announcement on marriage equality, the Log Cabin Republicans (a conservative gay group) praised calling the announcement callous and offensive. I don't understand their "logic" either.

Based on information from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, gay men face higher rates of hate crimes than Jews, blacks, lesbians, etc.

In the wake of Amendment One's passage, a petition is circulating asking the Democratic Party to take their convention out of North Carolina. Because of North Carolina's importance to the national election, I doubt the DNC will take heed (but I signed it anyway on principle).

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
In a monthly newsletter, a Republican group in Greene County Virginia is suggesting an armed revolution if President Obama is reelected.

Support for the "Buffett Rule" just came from a place where no one looked for it: actor Will Smith.

As time ran out for a vote on civil unions in Colorado, the Governor called for a special session to vote on the bill.

Here is a sample of positive reactions about President Obama's marriage announcement.

And lastly, Democratic strategist James Carville wants to issue a wake-up call to his party about this election cycle.
