      Sure, it hasn't been as fast as we hoped but you can't deny that things are very different now.  Obama is choosing his battles ... the time and the means.  He is a stealth President.  Just wait.  And, I won't call you a grasshopper because I hate that.

      •  My other diary points out that lots of people (7+ / 0-)

        were led to believe by Obama that they were voting for new faces and new positions in Washington and that they were misled.  Same thing here, Alliedoc.  Obama campaigned against DADT but now has flip-flopped (just as he did on all the positions listed in my other diary).  What's to believe about this guy?  A stealth candidate or a liar?  Sorry, no more support from me for this man (and I'm sure a lot of other progressives are tired of the broken promises).  By the way, have you noticed Obama's poll numbers even here at DailyKos are starting to slip and the disapproval numbers are going up?  How's that going to play out in 2010 when unemployment stands at 10%?  But thanks for being a courteous poster.
