President Obama, What About DOMA?

A Campaign Promise In Allowing To Serve Openly

Barack Obama

"Counterproductive Strategy" - On the campaign trail, "Senator" Obama had promised to work towards lifting the ban against gays serving openly. That time is NOW

Now, Defense Secretary Robert Gates says it could take years to actually bring about the change of the U.S. Military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" or "DOMA"which forbids gays from serving openly in the armed services.

"If it ever happens..."

Gates, who recently spoke at the U.S. Army War College says he hasn't taken a position yet on when it whether gays should be open about their sexuality which, under current rules can lead to discharge.

Gates says to a group of reporters that "it's a touchy subject" and that he needs to have a one on one conversation with others regarding it.

I say, it's time for Gates to go! Mr. President, can you hear us? Serving proudly in the military is what its all about!

Standing up (ok, sitting down) for our rights!

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
