In 2010, after controlling Congress for 4 years and the Presidency for 2, the Lame Duck Democratic Majority undid what a Democratic President and Congress put in place in 1993 and repealed Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

In 2012, with the President desperate to consolidate his fracturing base of support, the President stopped evolving on Gay Marriage and has adopted the position of Dick Cheney.

Not exactly a profile in courage.
