Anderson Cooper spoke with President Obama about the Clinton administration’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy. Obama stated that while he’d like to see DADT changed (sooner, rather than later), he insisted it’s not appropriate for the president to say he won’t enforce a law that’s constitutionally valid. Obama stated: “I do think that there’s the possibility, though, that we change how the law is being enforced even as we are pursuing a shift in congressional policy.”
What’s interesting to note here is that Obama used the word “changed” instead of “repealed,” although he recently called on Congress to repeal both DADT and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
I don’t know about anybody else, but I’d like to beat Bill and Hillary Clinton with a nail-spiked baseball bat. The Clinton administration left a mess for Obama to clean up.
