During a town hall meeting Thursday, Obama said he was obliged to enforce and defend “don’t ask” because it became the law 17 years ago.
“Congress explicitly passed a law that took away the power of the executive branch to end this policy unilaterally,” Obama said in response to a question about why he had not lifted the ban. "So, this is not a situation in which, with a stroke of a pen, I can simply end the policy.”
Of course in this case, you need not even use a pen, you can just sit there.
But no, it's going to be "this unconstitutional, discriminatory law sucks -- how dare a judge declare it so, I guess I'll have to appeal to preserve it."
But at least we found some Republicans the President is willing to fight:
For six years, Justice Department lawyers have pushed back against a challenge to the law brought by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay GOP group.
Mr. President, this refusal to grasp "change" when it is laid before you on a silver platter...
It's not a bug, it's a"lifestyle choice".
