Last night CNN’s John King interviewed Joe Solmonese, President of the Human Rights Campaign, and discussed the failed Senate ‘DADT’ repeal bill.
According to Solmonsleaze:
“I think everybody involved in this process let the community down. Every one of the players in this process let the community down because the fact of the matter was there was a path forward, whether it was the White House, the Democratic leadership, the Republicans who supported this bill. I have to believe we could have found that way forward and we could have gotten it done.”
Of course Joe did not include the HRC in his critique.of the problem which HRC and himself are a major
reason for the failing because of their spineless ass kissing ways.
In September Andrew Sullivan and also this blog clled upon HRC to fire Joe Solmonese or for Solmonese himself to do the right thing in resign. Those calls fell upon deaf ears. Now after the massive lying, ineptitude and the spinelessness of HRC and its President Solmonese has finally come to light others are also joining the call.
Joe Solmonese should do the honorable thing and step down. It is shameful to cash all those checks without the follow through on the job. The White House was never put under serious pressure; the late calls now in the e-blasts for the President to do something ring hollow after the toadying that has gone on for two years
. Its well past time kids. If HRC wants to represent us Solmonese needs to leave and the entire organization needs to be restructured. But the first move is getting Solmonese out of there!
Our house is only as strong as the foundation that it is built upon and Solmonese and HRC are rotten to the core, need to be excavated and rebuilt.
Anyone volunteer to write up the petition?
