I’m sure none of you will be surprised to hear that Obama’s lawyers have objected to the worldwide injunction Judge Virginia Phillips tried to issue on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs had this to say about the administration’s dastardly move:
“This filing in no way diminishes the president’s firm commitment to achieve a legislative repeal of DADT.”
Enlighten me, Mr Gibbs. How exactly does thie NOT diminish his commitment?
It would be one thing if Obama had done nothing. But no. If he HAD done nothing, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would be history RIGHT NOW. It would be over.
But he told his lawyers to file an objection.
Again, I’m not surprised. Totally saw this coming. You’re PREDICTABLE, Obama, you hear me? Predictable in your LIES.
Before he was elected, I went around telling everyone that he wasn’t gonna do anything he said he was gonna do. But I didn’t know it would be THIS bad. Not only is he not doing what he said he would; he’s doing the OPPOSITE!
It’s not surprising, but still a bummer after this week’s Senate debacle. I swear, if the ruling on Margaret Witt doesn’t go well today — well, then it’ll probably be one of the shittiest weeks in DADT history.
