didnt take long for Dan Savage to inject cynicism into the matter

Anything that can be given by a President with a stroke of the pen can be taken away by the stroke of a pen....

Having Congress repeal DADT is the only sensible way to go....

When will Savage understand this and let up on his Exec Order stupid talk?

NO PROGRESSIVE would have wanted the watered down public option that never had a chance of passing the filibustered Senate.... Let's pass this bill, which is otherwise pretty monumental, then fight for a reconciliation bill next year that opens up Medicare for buy-ins to everyone!
Nov 19, 2009 montgomery sun commented on $2,600,000,000.
how about this idea for raising revenue:

dan savage gets fined $1 everytime he goes on TV and attacks obama for not being a fag...

our budget wud be in surplus by 2011!!

yeah, that's idealistically what should have happened.
but alas they run the white house, not the house of idealism.
team obama did the right thing, politically.
yet on the idealistic level i agree with you....
g'night dingo.

@26
it's a potentially controversial video.
the white house wanted to see it.
they did nothing wrong considering the university's policy.

likewise: team obama should endorse single payer health care, should end both wars immediately, should enact a new New Deal, and should legalize marijuana, etc.

do you wanna talk politics or do you wanna talk idealism?

@23 for the umpteenth time, it was the college's policy to get a clearance to publish the video.... read the damn article.

@22 great point...

but i don't think he was lying during his campaign. it's just insanely hard to get anything done in washington dc. i mean his own party is even selling him out.

remember the health care bill that was to be signed into law in august?
maybe january now.
how about the strict wall street regulations?
this week the senate, one year later, introduced a bill to regulate wall street.
didn't he run on education too?
any peep of repealing "no child left behind"?

obama is the most decent guy to hold office in decades, and his team is the most politically astute. to watch them tread water like this is boggling. a revealing indicator of just how fucked up our country is....

regardless, badmouth the dude all you want: it's your own foot your shooting.

@20 why wouldn't you want them to cover their asses, make sure they see what was said first before giving consent?
in politics you leave no stone unturned!

[obama and co. are most likely the best political team we've ever seen. a black man got more votes than any other president ever, took down the clintons, and wait, did we forget that obama is a freakin' black man, and won in a landslide presidential election?]

let them do their politics. chill the fuck out.
