President Barack Obama Seems To Back Down On Repeal Of DADT

While campaigning for President, Barack Obama told gays that he would repeal the Don't Ask Don't Tell law.
The majority of us threw our support behind a candidate we expected would move the government to treat us equally.
When asked on the transition teams web site if the president would repeal DADT, the Press Secretary Robert Gibbs wrote. "Yes."
Now, 110 days into the new presidency we hear this about DADT from Defense Secretary Robert Gates went asked about DADT: We are looking "down the road" because "that dialogue (to repeal DADT) though has not progressed very far."
On This Week With George Stephanopoulos Obama's National Security Adviser General James Jones said "I don't know." As in: I don't know if DADT will be repealed.
What the hell? Can anyone think of anything this president has done for our community since taking office? Hey Mr. President, now that you got the dog you think you might throw us a bone?
