    And he even didn't do the heavy lifting: Congress did.

      be a lovely gesture of "fierce advocacy" while tens of thousands of brave glb military patriots are sweating bullets that they won't be outed before the powers that be get around to the certification?

        it would have lasted until the next Republican President came in and rescinded it, just like the Mexican City anti-abortion/contraception executive order that's been treating women's lives like a ping pong ball for the last few decades.  The only difference is that this time you'd have people come out thinking they were safe and then be cashiered the day after the next Republican is inaugurated.

      •  That would take seconds of his valuable time. (0+ / 0-)

        And a whole sheet of paper.

        Priorities, please.
