Robert Gibbs was on “Meet the Press” this morning. In my open thread, I wrote:
Robert Gibbs is the other guest on “Meet.” So, we may be treated to more garbled and incoherent answers about the President’s views on DADT.
And, as you’ll see, that’s exactly what we got. The last time Gibbs wasn’t completely illogical on DADT was during the transition. At AMERICAblog Gay this mornuing, Tim Beauchamp posted that video. I also posted this “Meet the Press” video at there, too.
Note that Gibbs will not say if Obama thinks DADT is unconstitutional. We’ve been trying to get an answer to that question directly for months. Instead, we’re told he hasn’t spoken to it.
