So does Pajamas Media paraphrase a question I explored for them. Let me give you a taste of how I addressed he issue:
Even though Barack Obama captured 70% of the gay vote in 2008, he ran behind the share John Kerry won four years previously. At least according to CNN exit polls of 77% of gay, lesbian and bisexual Americans preferred the 2004 Democratic nominee to George W. Bush (who had that year signaled his support for the Federal Marriage Amendment).
Still, 70% of the gay vote is nothing to sneeze it. With promises to repeal Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell (DADT) and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) while including gays in federal hate crimes protections and enacting the Employment Non-Discrimination ACT (ENDA), Obama rode a wave of hope that, once elected, he would sign legislation designed to bring positive change for gay Americans.
Yet, once in office, he has failed to deliver, save on signing a more comprehensive hate crimes bill which includes sexual orientation among the groups previously covered.
