    Kind of expected and unremarkable, but it does at least confirm that Kagan will recuse herself when the case eventually reaches the Supreme Court, meaning that we could end up with a 4-4 decision.

  4. The President needs to act as Commander In Chief and issue an Executive Order ending this obscene discrimination. Just as Truman didn’t wait for Congress or reports or other nonsense when ending racial discrimination, the time for waiting to end sexual orintation discrimination came and went about the day after Obama was sworn in as President. And, he needs to fire the homophobic Marine Corp. Commandant who seems incapable of following Obama’s lead and is simple making up excuses on why the Marines can’t get with the program.

    Bruce, sadly Obama doesn’t have the stones to do anything. He is just a lame-@$$ed political hack that sold the GLBT community in the US a bunch of bullcrap.

    Bishop you are 100% completely right. Ant other comander would have done something by now. But Clinton was the one bullied into this law by Republicans in the first place. They say to tell the truth in the service but you have to lie about who you really are. I served in the 60′s.
