Historical reminder: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was the end result of newly-elected President Bill Clinton’s first official blunder: assuming he could automatically do away with the military’s anti-gay monolith. DADT was the tail-between-the-legs compromise, which, like the horrific economy and two wars, President Obama inherited.
Fact: The Obama Administration doesn’t rush to judgment about troop deployment, let alone gay issues. The Man is a thinker before he’s a doer. The president is a coalition builder and a diplomat. Do you tell Michael Jordan when to shoot? Do you tell James Bond when to spring into action?
Relax, LGBT people of America. Let the President deal with the deep shit he inherited before he gets to the fags.
