    ...here's why they are taking that tack right now: they NEED DADT to be enforced the way it has been from the start. If it starts to be less and less of an issue but it's still on the books, there won't be the hue and cry for its repeal. Keeping the reality of what DADT is smack dab in front of people is important for keeping the national appetite for its repeal high.

    I realize there's a good debate to be had over whether or not that's a good strategy but I am convinced they aren't doing it because they don't care about DADT being repealed. They DO want it repealed and they want it repealed permanently and, to have that be true, it's gotta come from Congress passing legislation.

    To be clear, it's "EClectablog", not "Electablog".

      they repeatedly make excuses and kick the can down the road. it's not complicated- if they want it gone, let the court rulings stand.
