    I compare them because he was the last President, and from the opposing party.

    I have the strangest feeling of deja vu.

    The startling pronouncement, which could re-open a dormant battle in the culture wars and distract from other elements of Obama's agenda, came during a Gibbs exchange with members of the public who sent in questions that were answered on YouTube.

    "Thadeus of Lansing, Mich., asks, 'Is the new administration going to get rid of the "don't ask, don't tell policy?'" said Gibbs, looking into the camera. "Thadeus, you don't hear a politician give a one-word answer much. But it's, 'Yes.'"

    The Obama transition team declined to elaborate on that one-word answer when asked by FOX News on Wednesday about a timetable for repealing the policy, which was enacted by Clinton after a protracted public debate. Obama officials also would not explain which lawmakers or Pentagon officials would attempt to repeal "don't ask, don't tell."

    I remember reading that and one of my professors said how happy he was that Obama was going to overturn this. I bet him a beer that next year around January that Obama would again be saying he would overturn this. Time to get my free beer!

    Where did he say that?

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    It wouldn't take much more than that these days.
