Lying Liar Lies Again

Is anyone really surprised at this?

Obama Seeks Stay on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Ruling

Published: October 14, 2010
WASHINGTON — Saying it is preparing to appeal a ruling striking down the law that bans gay men and women from serving openly in the United States military, the Obama administration on Thursday asked the federal judge who issued the ruling for an emergency stay of her decision.
In a set of filings before Judge Virginia Phillips of California, Obama administration officials argued that she should suspend her decision earlier this week to issue an injunction preventing the military from expelling gay and lesbian service members under the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law. Last month, Judge Phillips ruled that the law was unconstitutional. 
The filings included a 48-page declaration by Clifford L. Stanley, the under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness. He argued that immediately blocking that policy worldwide would create large logistical problems and would disrupt their own efforts to prepare the armed forces and work with Congress to repeal the policy in an orderly way.  

Obama blows in the wind. It's whoever got to him last... and it's always someone conservative, whether opposition party leader or civilian appointed official involved in the military, that gets to him last. Who the fuck is Clifford L. Stanley to be commenting on a judicially determined constitutional issue? Well, he's nobody, but he got to Obama. And Obama once again rendered himself a baldfaced liar by not following through on his promise to try to repeal DADT. The man is utterly untrustworthy.

I can only hope that the political future of America... and future history... give Obama exactly what he deserves.

UPDATE: I missed this one yesterday: Obama Administration Announces Appeal To Reverse Same Sex Marriage Victory [in Massachusetts]. Face it: Obama is turning out to be an open homophobe.

  1. While this was going on Obama was telling the MTV crowd that he was going to do away with DADT during his administration.

    He really needs to coordinate the messaging in his administration.
