Webster666 saidOh. That'll go over big...
Why the hell is he asking Congress to do something that they'll NEVER do, when HE could do it HIMSELF any day he chooses?
It's people like you, grossly ignorant of the facts, who cripple the fight for gay rights. Where'd you get that bit of misinformation from, listening to FOX News?
Grossly ignorant of facts?
The President has the ability and power to repeal DADT by Executive order , much the same way it was enacted. While it's true, the next person voted in may choose to reinstate DADT. Without public support and very little support from the armed forces it would seem unlikely it would be reinstated.
The President also has avaliable to him the power to suspend operation of DODT under 10 U. S. C. 12305 which grants the President the authority to "Suspend Certain Laws Relating to Promotion, Retirement and Seperation". Under 12305 Congress grants the President the authority to suspend seperation of military members in times of national emergency.
Also you might check and see why it is that it takes a matter of a few days for the President to push a $787 billion stimulus pkg through both houses while HR1283 (introduced March 3 2009) is still, nearly a year latter , in committee? By the way, HR 1283 is the bill that would repeal DADT, but I'm sure in all your wisdom you already knew that! And spare me your usual bullshit of blaming the Republicans, since the Democrat super majority doesn't need them to pass anything through either house
Looks like Webster666 is a bit less ignorant of the facts than you are. And for the record I got the information from the sources and not Fox News. You really should try being a bit nicer and a little more respectful to people you obviously feel are not your equil, instead of being such an over blown, puffed up Idelogue! I don't understand your need to belittle and bully other people, it's really quite sad and we've all seen it way too much!
