Lane Hudson, a blogger and activist who attended the Human Rights Campaign event, said while Obama's speech was well-received, it probably would not erase doubts about his commitment to fulfilling his campaign promises.And if he doesn't get to it in this term, well then just vote for him in 2012 and he is SURE to get to in the next.
"It was the kind of feel-good speech we are used to from the president," Hudson said. "It lacked any specific details on fulfilling his promises and he failed to say anything new at all."
Campaign promises are worth squat. Politicians will say whatever the people in front of them want to hear. He made promises last year. He made promises yesterday.
