    vs weakness and timidity. Obama has been guilty of the latter on this issue.

      ....Senator McCain homophobic; it just makes him a spineless politician who is appealing to his base of support.  The weakness and timidity you mention has the same end result: Discharge.  I see no meaningful difference for the people this impacts.

      It's the policy, stupid

        the man is clearly homophobic. He is initiating action against gays and expressing opinions that gay people are a bad influence in the military.

        •  Obama... (0+ / 0-)

          ....said that marriage was a "sacred union" between men and women and God was "in the mix."  And he continues to discharge people for their sexual orientation, brings homophobes into the tent to bless his administration, etc. ::Shrug::
