Even Romney endorsements show contrast between pro-equality POTUS and GOP challenger

by Jeremy Hooper

Suburban Chicago's Daily Herald did, in fact, endorse Mitt Romney. But it's interesting that even this endorsement highlights President Obama's "notable accomplishment" on behalf of LGBT civil rights:

Mitt Romney said he would've stayed in Iraq, has vowed to overturn Obamacare on day one, and has signed the National Organization For Marriage's truly chilling pledge against LGBT rights (with no substantial promises that would promote LGBT welfare). If editorial boards who support things like peace of mind for their LGBT readers are still able to endorse his candidacy despite these crucial accomplishments (and so many more), then that's on them. But let's all be honest about the stakes.
