How Obama Breaking Other Campaign Promises Threatens Gay Rights

Every time Barack Obama breaks a promise, it’s a perfect time to point out how the president has turned his back on the gay community. Turning over detainee abuse photos? Military tribunals for terrorism suspects? Letting HIV-positive foreigners enter the U.S.? All that just points out that Obama also made a few other guarantees, like repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. The bad news?

If everyone starts pointing out how Obama reneged on his campaign promises, his lies to the gays could get washed away as “just another issue.” And we’ll be marginalized all over again. Oh no!
