The Republican National Committee has dropped its anti-gay Hope Isn't Hiring micro-site.

The website, which went live the day after President Barack Obama announced his 2012 reelection bid, attacked the president on a wide number of policy fronts, specifically the economy.

But the website also took a swipe at the president for his support of the LGBT community.

Under a section devoted to social issues, the RNC slammed Obama for supporting repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the Clinton-era law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly, instructing the Department of Justice to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the law that bans federal agencies from recognizing the legal marriages of gay and lesbian couples, and opposing California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8.

According to the site, “Despite it being the law of the land, Obama refused to continue defending the Defense of Marriage Act in court,” “Obama repealed 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' while U.S. troops are still on the battlefield,” and “Obama opposed California's Prop 8 and has expanded government recognition of same-sex couples.” (A Hope Isn't Hiring web ad is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest gay rights advocate, had criticized the site's anti-gay message in a letter to the RNC.

“Hopefully, the Republican Party leadership has come to their senses and realized that attacking LGBT families offends the great majority of Americans,” Solmonese said on Tuesday. “Polling overwhelmingly shows that Americans support LGBT equality and the Republican Party would be foolish to campaign on a platform based on discrimination and ignorance.”
