This presidential order is something however that in my opinion is way over due, as it is obvious that Obama knew he had the power to do this from day one and seeing that there was little to no action on the national level in congers to correct this he should have taken this action day one. It will according to the different coverage take months for the laws to be drafted and this presidential order to go into effect. This is a great first step, but now it's time for Obama to take some strong action on DADT if that means another presidential order calling for a halt of prosecution. Since congers is the only one that can change the Law concerning DADT, but their is not point in not getting read of a law that the commander and chief has order the military to ignore. That is is where his power will be strongest but he also needs to step up his effort to get congress to pass ENDA and get that on his desk to be signed, because one of the most damaging things to the gay rights movement are those that remain in the closet because they fear losing their jobs and those every thing else they have worked for. If we can get ENDA and DADT, that will get us as a community on a strong footing to finally secure our selves the final frontier of equality which is marriage.
As always thank you for reading, and comments always welcome :-)
