I’m losing faith in the ‘Obama plays a long game’ theory. (h/t mac who brought this up today )
Gotta admit though, the Pentagon is about to deep-six DADT and that didn’t happen by executive order. Obama suffered the slings and arrows that descended on him when he didn’t just do it on January 21, 2009. He allowed the process to work until the support was broader. I suppose that’s that is playing a long game.
Anyway, Tom Tomorrow nails it – this is how Democrats see things today – click to enlarge.
