It’s been 6 days since DADT was thrown out, and no enormous consequences yet

Perhaps it’s time for someone to ask the President when exactly these “enormous consequences” kick in – you know, the sky is falling stuff that supposedly will happen if DADT is summarily thrown out, like it was last Tuesday. It’s been almost a week, and no enormous consequences. No small infinitesimally small consequences either. So why did the Obama administration claim that there would be? When exactly do these enormous consequences begin? On day 7? Day 30? Day 365? Are they invisible consequences that you can only see with super duper Department of Defense decoder rings?

Our mainstream press needs to be asking the White House every single day when these consequences are supposed to kick in, because they haven’t, and the President is looking awfully silly.
