President Obama signs the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010 at the U.S. Department of Interior, Dec. 22, 2010

The Hill: The nation’s largest gay-rights groups endorsed President Obama for reelection, praising him for historic accomplishments for the LGBT community. The Human Rights Campaign posted a page on its website Thursday …. offering its endorsement of the president.

“From signature achievements like passage of the law to end ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ to administrative changes throughout government, President Obama has done more to improve the lives of LGBT people than any President in history,” the group said. “The following is a compilation of many of the actions taken by the Administration on LGBT issues.”

Obama had for some time faced scrutiny over the extent of his administration’s promises on gay rights but won a significant amount of praise for delivering on its promise to repeal “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” the military’s ban on openly gay and lesbian service members, late last year.

HRC’s endorsement, which comes at an especially early point in the cycle, should go some lengths to quieting criticism of Obama, who’s on the record as being against same-sex marriage but has acknowledged his viewpoints are “evolving.”
