How’s all that Hope and Change™ workin’ out for ya? The New York Times:
Saying it would appeal a ruling striking down the law that bans gay men and lesbians from serving openly in the United States military, the Obama administration on Thursday asked the federal judge who issued the ruling for an emergency stay of her decision.
In a 48-page court filing, Clifford L. Stanley, the under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness, argued that the military, particularly in wartime, should not be required to “suddenly and immediately restructure a major personnel policy that has been in place for years.” Mr. Stanley said the injunction would disrupt efforts to prepare for a more orderly repeal of the policy.
Politics as usual. Democrats are not interested in a repeal of DADT, but an orderly one. I have 3 words: Bull. Fucking. Shit. Who the fuck cares how DADT is repealed? Oh yeah, Ofuckingbama. Because otherwise how can he be our savior from republican repression. He just can’t let a group of republicans, log cabin get the credit. That would destroy his narrative that all republicans are TEH EVIL and that only he can loosen the chains laid on the homosexual community.
