There has been a lot of cranky complaints from gay activists since President Obama took office; that he was not doing enough, that he was not moving quickly enough, and that he was just paying lip service to the support of the LGBT community and the cause of equality for all. However, when you truly look at this president's record, it's remarkable what has actually been accomplished in less than four years. I would go so far as to say it's astounding. His administration has made it clear over and over again that gay rights are civil rights. Nothing more and nothing less. And that is revolutionary.
This progress is made even clearer in a new video released by the Obama campaign today which summarizes the president's bona fides for the cause of equality. Is there room for improvement? Certainly. That's what a second term is for. People seriously need to start looking at how this glass is more than half-full and get to work on re-electing the LGBT community's greatest Oval Office advocate in history.
