  •  Obama should do it... (8+ / 0-)

    He has a majority of Congress backing him by the votes. It's not enough to jump the invisible hurdle of 60 (which shouldn't matter..period!) and the American People have gotten behind the repeal as well.

    It makes good politics even in this Mid-term election to do what is right in the face of injustice, hatred and bigotry. The Mosque, DADT repeal, and Immigration. All of which the rabid right has grasped as somehow constitutional to violate people's civil rights. This directly relates to that time when it was acceptable to segregate blacks.

    This is an acceptable risk for Obama in my view. Make a stand and this could bring the Democratic Base to it's feet and stand against the injustice of the far right!
