Obama May Want to Re-Read King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”

By: Thursday October 28, 2010 7:30 am

Joe Sudbay of AmericaBlog asked President Obama a simple question: is DADT unconstitutional? The answer he got was anything but simple, and Obama managed to refer to Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” in a reply that told LGBTs they were wrong to be disappointed in Obama’s strategy of “not now.”

Funny, but that’s not at all what King said. Obama’s reply makes it sound not like this is one of his “favorite pieces of literature” but something someone else read and gave him some talking points from.

Obama may want to re-read that letter — because the LGBTs sure act and sound like they’ve read it a lot more recently than Obama has.
