Obama’s priorities

- John Johnson, Lakeland

I was so pleased to see that our president immediatel­y called some gay and lesbian couples to congratula­te them for their “courage” after the Supreme Court ruling (June 27 article, “Gay rights victories / Top court allows marriage in Calif., spousal benefits”).

I wonder when he will find time to call the families of the courageous heroes who died at Benghazi while he was hiding in his room to avoid taking a stand that might hurt his election chances. It won’t be soon, as he is off on his $100 million African junket.
