My point, overall, is that if you compare the policies of both candidates from when they were in office, there is nothing differentiating one from the other with respect to gay rights (except that Mitt Romney was governor of a state that permits gay marriage and President Obama was not and is not the president of a country that permits gay marriage).
I do think you have a fair point criticizing Obama's stance, I don;t think the comparison is equal though.
I've covered some of this before, but basically most see his campaign as pretty homophobic. Based solely on this issue I'd call him homophobic. but looking into his relationships with homophobic groups he does seem to have caved to the right/
Okay, so my follow up point is what makes him different from President Obama? The president is caving to the homophobic element in his own party, is he not?
