Obama Not Moving To End DADT

In regard to Obama and DADT, I'm afraid that it does not appear to look good for its demise at this point:

"On FOX News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Defense Secretary Robert Gates about White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' statement earlier this year that "yes," Obama planned to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.Said Gates: "[DADT] continues to be the law, and any change in the policy would require a change in the law. We will follow the law whatever it is. That dialogue, though, has really not progressed very far at this point in the administration. I think the president and I feel like we've got a lot on our plates right now and let's push that one down the road a little bit." (Source: Towleroad)

Push it down the road? Are they serious? I'm just not feeling good about Obama at this point. Where is the "change we can believe in?"
