The man I voted for

The 2007 edition of Barack Obama appears to be back in the house:
In some of the sharpest comments he’s made this election cycle, President Obama attacked Texas Gov. Rick Perry and recent Republican presidential debate audiences tonight at a fundraiser in Woodside, California.  
“Some of you here may be folks who actually used to be Republicans but are puzzled by what’s happened to that party, are puzzled by what’s happening to that party. I mean, has anybody been watching the debates lately?” Obama said, per a reporter who was there.
“You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change,” Obama told donors referring to Perry. 
“It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have health care and booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay. That’s not reflective of who we are,” said Obama
However, Perry, Santorum,  and the other phony Christians on that panel showed us exactly who they are when they permitted the debate audience to jeer a gay soldier. Someone qualified to lead the United States of freaking America would have silenced the crowd, and said "Shame on you. This young man deserves your thanks and your respect regardless of his sexual orientation."

Instead, your GOP contenders stood like mute morons, silently witnessing the humiliation of a US soldier. If they haven't got the courage to correct a crowd of Tea Baggers, how do they expect to lead this country?
