    That's kind of the point. I want to see action, we've had enough promises and words and rhetoric to last all of the 8 years I hope he serves.

    Great that he said that, and honestly I'm not as up to speed on the policy side of DADT as I could be. I just know it's something he could do relatively easily, with few consequences, that would go a long way toward restoring some credibility with the left. I defer to your knowledge of the subject, and hopefully we see some movement on it soon.

    Dance like no one is watching with one fist in the air... We are stronger than everything they have taught us that we should fear.

    •  How do a get a law repealed (3+ / 0-)

      in this congress relatively easily? Jesus look at the number of votes against Franken's rape amendment.

      I want DADT repealed, but I want it done right and I want it done permanently. This means not with some executive order that could be overturned by the next homophobic C in C. And my concern with a stop loss order is that it takes the pressure off to repeal the law.

      In the choice between changing ones mind and proving there's no need to do so, most people get busy on the proof.
