Hillary continues Obama admin contradictory policy on gay civil rights

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

From Dana Milbank in the Wash Post:

Clinton herself repeated a phrase she delivered to the same audience a year ago: “Gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.”

If so, wouldn’t the same apply at home to gay Americans seeking equal treatment? Her husband seems to think so: Bill Clinton, who signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law when he was president, now supports gay marriage. But Hillary Clinton told the Advocate earlier this year: “I have not changed my position.”

Speaking at the gay-pride event about the “especially momentous and extraordinary” New York vote, Clinton departed from her script to describe the legislative victory in her adopted home state. “We have to continue to stand up for the rights and the well-being of LGBT people,” she concluded.

A worthy challenge — so why doesn’t the administration answer it?
And, as you can see in the video in the post below, the President still won't answer it.
