Obama was in New York City last night at an expensive gala for the LGBT community, marking the start of what will surely be an aggressive courtship of gay dollars for his 2012 re-election campaign.

Compared with all previous presidents combined, Obama has a commendable record when it comes to LGBT rights. He has been a staunch supporter of the gay community, and has always supported equal rights for the LGBT community.

And yet, even when the crowd of $1,250-a-plate supporters called out “marriage,” he brushed it off. He talked about “the power of our democratic system” when discussing New York’s current debate on gay marriage, and steered clear of stating direct support of same-sex marriage.
