    Are you trying to turn my thread into a partisan debate so that it gets kicked down to the Basement and hides your shame?

    Careful, he might ask you if you've served and whether you're really a Conservative. Conservatives don't exist in San Diego.

    Good policy. It took 5 years to desegregate the armed forces and if you listen to Obama he wants to make this as gradual a change as possible so as to minimize any problems.

    "When I said there was only one motivation for a repeal for DADT, I wasn't generalizing! Anyway, here's another generalization about liberals."

    Well, I believe the Pentagon understands the pulse of the military better than President Obama. If the Pentagon wanted to place DADT aside, why would the President refuse it? The Marine Corps and the Army have hated this policy since before 9/11.

    The military doesn't have a choice. The National Defense Authorization Act passed by Congress in 1993 requires that the military kick out gays, the "Don't Ask" part is the only part that Clinton added through a Defense Directive.

    It's more confused than anything else these days. Unwilling to give gays their right to marry and bankrupt.
