Obama Advisor tries to spin the appeal of the DADT ruling October 21, 2010Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
Here we can watch one Valerie Jarret try to spin the appeal of the DADT ruling as being one that should be decided by congress.
Here’s the source of my cognitive dissonance. I know that President Obama was a Constitutional law professor. So it’s not like he doesn’t understand the structure of government or about the checks and balances of the tri-lateral form of government.
But at the same time I know the President is also the Commander in Chief of ALL the military branches, as well as being the chief executive. If you didn’t know, the Department of Justice falls under the EXECUTIVE branch.
So Obama could be a leader and tell the military they’re going to allow gay people to serve openly. Case closed, no recourse. He IS the Commander in Chief.
So why is it our ‘fierce advocate’ can’t find the stones to be a fucking leader when we need him to be a leader.
He’s had some successes sure, but the health reform debacle where he backpedaled the public option was fucking shameful. And he’s throwing we gay people under the bus too.
It isn’t that I won’t vote for him come 2012 but damn it, act like a leader. Not some namby pamby doormat that the Repugs are going to walk all over.
