"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to Definitely Maybe Be Repealed Eventually Hopefully Under Certain Conditions For Real!
Oh my God! Have you heard about the gay people and the military and the gay people in the military?
Apparently, the White House nodded its head in approval over some kind of "deal" between gay rights activists, Congress and the Department of Defense, and now "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" could be shit-canned by as early as this week! Or maybe even as early as never? I think? I don't know. Maybe…
The White House budget office sent a letter supporting the proposal to remove the Clinton-era "don't ask, don't tell" law even as the Pentagon continues a review of the system. Implementation of policy for gays serving openly would still require the approval of President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen. How long implementation might take is not known, but the proposed amendment would have no effect on current practices.
"The proposed amendment will allow for completion of the comprehensive review, enable the Department of Defense to assess the results of the review, and ensure that the implementation of the of the repeal is consistent with standards of military readiness, effectiveness, unit cohesion, recruiting and retention," budget chief Peter Orszag wrote in identical evening letters to Pennsylvania Rep. Patrick Murphy, Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman and Michigan Sen. Carl Levin — the Democrats leading the push for repeal.
There go those Democrats again. Shoving their radical liberalism down the throat of America when only a mere 75 percent of the country are asking for it.
