Obama’s new pick for Marine Commandant opposes repealing DADT

What idiot chose a guy who vocally opposes one of the President’s top policy priorities? The fact is, the White House didn’t care enough about DADT to pick a nominee who was on our side, and who supported the President. I doubt a Republican president would ever choose someone who vocally disagreed with him, and who would publicly try to discredit him.

Yet again, this isn’t fierce advocacy. It’s yet another missed opportunity by the Obama administration. And it’s further proof that our civil rights just aren’t that important over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
