President Obama Talks About DADT In State Of Union Address

January 25, 2011

No mention of DOMA or marriage equality from President Obama tonight.  We wanted more, and I think we deserved more.

There was this however regarding DADT.

Our troops come from every corner of this country – they are black, white, Latino, Asian and Native American. They are Christian and Hindu, Jewish and Muslim. And, yes, we know that some of them are gay. Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love.  And with that change, I call on all of our college campuses to open their doors to our military recruiters and the ROTC. It is time to leave behind the divisive battles of the past. It is time to move forward as one nation.

    just keep waiting…. Perhaps he’ll mention it in his fund-raising letters. He knows you’re never going to vote republican, so its not a real concern to him.
