Hmm, I'm still seeing it on the Civil Rights page.
http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/civil_rights/
"President Obama also continues to support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and believes that our anti-discrimination employment laws should be expanded to include sexual orientation and gender identity. He supports full civil unions and federal rights for LGBT couples and opposes a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. He supports repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in a sensible way that strengthens our armed forces and our national security, and also believes that we must ensure adoption rights for all couples and individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation."

Thanks. It didn't come up on my search - I've edited to add this. The other day the head of the lesbian and gay community center in LA sent an open letter protesting the removal of the commitment to repeal DOMA and the watering down of the commitment to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell and it looks like that's still where it stands - not good but not nothing.
