LGBT Issues Closeted in Debates

The presidential debates have ended without addressing any LGBT issues. The only mention was “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” by Obama in the first debate when listing his accomplishments during his first term. This really isn’t surprising with the extreme anti gay platform the GOP conceived for their convention but it’s a bit odd since the Dems convention had a strong LGBT presence. The Advocate even weighed in this stating, “With four debates & hours worth of questions & answers, the words "gay" or "lesbian" never broke through.” We all find this a bit disturbing but do we want to give Romney a chance to express how homophobic he is? If elected Romney wants to reinstate “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”,  he wants a federal constitutional amendment to ban marriage equality & though a year ago he told the Nashua Telegraph, “I favor gay rights,” & said he doesn’t “believe in discriminating in employment or opportunity for gay individuals…” he’s never brought the subject up again. Mitt Romney will say anything & do anything to get elected. He is not for the good of anyone except for himself. He’s just another power-hungry man that if elected he will make this country sadly unrecognizable. We have seen his ambition shatter LGBT programs in Massachusetts once he became governor. All he wants is power for power sake. Let’s hope that the independent voters who are undecided wake up & vote for Obama before it’s too late. Updated to Come…:)
