The Heros Of DADT Repeal (Not Obama)

Rachel Maddow thinks the repeal of DADT is Obama's victory. He may get credit but I think he did very little to help us out. I give credit to: Nancy Pelosi, Senators Lieberman, Gillibrand and Collins, and to all the brave GLBT service members and our brave activists who fought so hard to end this policy. As for Obama...let's see how quickly he actually ends the discrtimination. Lt. Dan Choi puts Mr. Presidnt O on the spot:

President Obama, you are not off the hook. The compromise bill passed today puts the moral imperative squarely on your desk. Sign an executive order instituting a full non-discrimination policy throughout the military. If you do not, if you drag your feet and politicize this with your theoretical calculations as you have these past two years, you will be guilty of abetting those who loudly proclaim homophobia from their platforms and pulpits. Provide them no shelter or safe haven. Institute justice now.
