Like I said....call them back!  Plead your case to someone who will listen.  There was a thread here just recently about a lady who was denied a Chase card.  She REALLY REALLY wanted it but she got the denial letter just like you did.  She called back 5 times until she finally got approved.

 

Here is the thread....maybe it will give you some inspiration

Seems like you should have been approved, even w/a low starting CL. How long ago did you app? If it was within 30 days, then try calling the backdoor #. Most have reported no luck with this, but couldn't hurt to try. If longer than 30 days, then maybe reapply.

 

Alternatively, call and ask for a supervisor. If it's been over 30 days, they probably would need to do another HP, though. Maybe a supervisor could enlighten you as to the 2 year waiting period. Maybe say you have a friend (us!) who got a Walmart card less than 2 yrs post Bk, so why do they have the requirement for you and not for your friend.
