Openly gay actor and Obama supporter, Alan Cumming, lambasted President Obama on his blog over the weekend as doing “diddly squat” for gay rights. "We keep hearing that Obama is an ally, that DADT will end under his watch, but what do we actually get? Diddly squat thus far on a federal level and in addition to that some very offensive statements that would have made the Republicans look bad. In a time when America is full of hatred of all kinds, but especially hatred towards young gay people, what message is the president sending when he repeatedly goes out of his way to spread the message that the gay population is not worthy of the respect that everyone else is?!" The Huffington Post picked up the story and included it as part of their home page cover story on Gays and the Midterm elections. Disappointed with the lackluster attitude of the Democrats and broken promises by President Obama on equality issues for the LGBT community, many gays are considering staying home this election season. Robin McGehee, co-founder and director of the national gay-rights organization GetEQUAL calls the mood among gay voters a "disappointment canyon" but still encouraged the gay community to go to the polls. "We can't not take advantage of the right to vote, but that doesn't mean we can't vote smartly," said McGehee, and then added "If I was a leader in the Democratic Party, I would be worried. Either we're important enough to fight for our equality or we're worth losing," she said. "Right now we're being treated like we're worth losing."
