It's not a lack of leadership, it is that processes do take time.


    I can see that. I still think it was a lack of cajones on his part, not to say any other president prior or after would have same cajones, but I see your point.

    I agree. I think that Obama is trying to hard to appear as the good guy to both sides, so he's trying to be bipartisan on a lot of issues. The same is true of a lot of politicians. Ultimately, that means that he will end up going back on a lot of his promises. I honestly think he can kiss his chances of re-election goodbye at this point. Unless some kind of a miracle happens and he decides to live up to his campaign promises.

    I don't understand the OP. Is there a box on the application form where you check off "gay"?

    Well, currently it's on the books that we can't have openly gay people in the military. A federal judge ruled this unconstitutional. The supreme court can go back and rule her to be wrong and that it was perfectly legal.

    If we do this legislatively, take DADT off the books all together, then the supreme court could only rule that somehow allowing gays into the military is against the law or goes against the constitution, which would be a laughable idea. Congress wouldn't be legislating whether DADT is constitutional, only that it's no longer a policy of the US.

    I'd like to know if I'm mistaken somewhere...

    Within Days I imagine some local TV Network affiliates will (by coincidence) have a Camera a crew(s) handy for some Really open Homosexual types to at least try to get into the Service.

    Now, them actually Raising their Hands and taking the Oath is another matter - but some will enjoy the Hell out of the moment of the Recruiters having to deal with them.

    We do need a few Generals to speak out about this Judge's decision which I think might not be Constitutional.

    They've had - what - 17 years? If that aint time I don't know what is.

    Of course they spent that whole time trying to fight the future rather than slowly permit it to happen . .. thus leaving me to believe they would have just always fought it and never would have come to that conclusion on their own.
