Obama Aide: Don’t ask Don’t Tell Must Wait

So much for that campaign promise:

In an overlooked YouTube video posted on Friday, a spokesman for Barack Obama said the president-elect is committed to ending the policy that bars openly gay men and women from serving in the U.S. armed forces.


Gibbs on Wednesday expanded on his answer, saying, “There are many challenges facing our nation now and the president-elect is focused first and foremost on jump-starting this economy.

“So not everything will get done in the beginning but he’s committed to following through” with ending the policy against being openly gay in the military.

In other words, I promised to do this so you would elect me but in reality I’m not going to do anything to actually see don’t ask don’t tell overturned. However, with the dems in control of congress I don’t think it’ll take any push from Obama for the policy to be overturned which is to bad because it’s a policy which has worked well since its inception.

UPDATE: Welcome to everybody from Ace where the expiration on all of Obama’s promises was pointed. I guess you could call him a flipflopper but I prefer to call him Bobblehead Barack.

  1. Care to elaborate on how don’t ask, don’t tell has “worked well”? At a time when Arabic linguists are greatly needed in Our Military over 50 have been booted from serving because they are gay. How has this made our country stonger? Looking forward to your response.

    Thank you
