The White House released a report on Monday designed to highlight Barack Obama’s “achievements” in the area of “social progress and equality” over the past eight years.
“President Obama has led the fight to protect everyone — no matter who you are, where you’re from, what you look like, or whom you love,” the report begins.
“From pushing through sweeping rights and protections for LGBT Americans, to making our immigration system fairer and safer, to tackling poverty and investing in communities, here’s where the Administration’s record stands.”
Protections for gay couples were first on the list, followed by policies that shielded and helped out illegal immigrants. Reforms for the criminal justice system were listed third.
One would believe that fighting for our veterans, the men and women that made it possible for the rest of these reforms to occur, would be at the top of Obama’s list, but they weren’t.
Nearly at the bottom of this list is how Obama “improved veteran services,” and there isn’t much there.
More “accomplishments” were listed to reform the criminal justice system, or to “ensure equality for LGBT Americans” than there were to help out veterans who risked their lives for this country.
