Obama again pledges to change policy on gays.
Yeah, I'm not holding my breath. I'll go with Cleve Jones on this:
"He repeated his promises that he's made to us before, but he did not indicate when he would accomplish these goals and we've been waiting for a while now."
I've hit Obama's promises to gays in this space before. I've seen no indication he's not talking out his ass on a very important day for gays.
We may well have women on submarines soon. Just so long as they're not gay. And wouldn't that be a hell of a spotlight, if one of the first women bubbleheads got the boot for liking the kitty? (Again, I've known a lot of submariners in my time, and not a single one who gave a damn about the sexual orientation of his fellows, though I'm sure ones who do are out there.)
Time will tell, but I have the strong feeling the Big O simply is pandering to a constituency without having anything concrete planned. Hey, this sort of thing has worked for him in the very recent past, hasn't it?
