    Yes but he won’t as he wants to keep those bigotted christians on side.

    He made a promise to repeal the ban. He is stalling for his own political benefit.

    If the ban is not repealed by the next election the gay community should not vote for Obama

    He wouldn`t be so reticent if it was black people excluded from the military. How hypocritical can you get!

  3. Yes, but it wouldn’t be permanent, just an exceptional measure according to the source. I mean, it would be very nice that he does that and we all forget about the issue, just to find out that the next president can go back to the DADT law again based on new technical conditions.
    I think he should do both things: First, to use this provisional order to stop the dismissals, later to try to repeal that shitty law in Congress. He doesn’t piss the military conservatives the same shitty people that never was and never will be any kind of support for any democrat president, son don’t know what’s the issue. And the Christian empty heads bigots, more of the same.
