"The Supreme Court refused on Monday to hear a legal challenge to the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, a decision that allows the Obama administration to continue its slow, back-burner response to liberal activists who want gays to serve openly in the military. During last year's campaign, President Barack Obama indicated that he supported eventually repealing the law, but he has made no specific move to do so since taking office in January. The White House has said it won't stop the military from dismissing gays and lesbians who admit their sexuality."
When your base of support includes both African American church ladies and pastors, and gay rights activists, someone's going to be disappointed. Obama's political advantage has always been his lack of a record. As he develops a record, he will lose support.
