    It is no longer just a betrayal of LGBT Democrats & Indies who voted for Democrats across this country. It is an outright denial of our worth and dignity as human beings by the very party who says they care. I don't for one minute believe that anymore because true committment to the values espoused in so many of the pretty speeches and Democratic platform would mean full DADT repeal with an open serving military where discrimination based on sexual orientation was no longer a reality.

    This compromise is the final straw for me as a Gay man and Liberal who believes that discrimination is wrong period.

      thought "repeal" meant full repeal.  Silly us.  I'll now be assuming there are asterisks in all the pretty speeches, with qualifying statements in teeny, tiny print at the bottom.
