How Obama talked about LGBT equality at MTV forum in 2007

The President is doing a Town Hall meeting on MTV, BET and CMT this afternoon at 4 PM ET. As Nick broke the story that MTV wants “light questions.” Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

Be interesting to see how 2010 Obama will answer questions about LGBT equality today’s forum — if he gets any. The President will be taking questions via social media, one of the young people will ask him something LGBT related. Freedom To Marry has been tweeting this:

@BarackObama When & how can we expect you to take action to overturn #DOMA? #askLGBT

Getting a real answer on that would be a good start. Explaining what the hell is going on with DADT, too.

Sounded good, huh? But, actions, as we all know, speak louder than words.
