And Obama had the gall to state the following, after the gut wrenching decision of the California State Supreme Court regarding the status of Prop. 8, during the protests at which Lt. Choi spoke that occurred outside of that fundraiser:

At this point, does anyone think that Obama really cares one whit about equal rights for Gay people? Does anyone see Obama as anything but a smart, charismatic, charming shell whose chameleon-like principles are akin to those of Bill Clinton whom we have to thank for DADT and DOMA?
Obama could get rid of DADT at the drop of a hat! Moreover, by stating a few words, he could set the tone to get the ball rolling on the repeal of DOMA.
Yet he cruelly makes a cheap joke at the expense of millions of Gay Americans, many of whom he wooed to get their votes, and now it seems he couldn't care less about them. After all, he got what he wanted from them and, besides, he probably thinks, "Who else are they going to vote for?"
