An actual repeal of DADT would have been to go back to the pre-Clinton policy, where recruits were asked if they were gay, and an affirmative answer disqualified them from joining the military.

DADT was not repealed.

It was instituted as a “camel’s nose in the tent” method of opening the military to gays. This latest move is the next step in the process, letting the camel in.

We should not fall for the manipulation of language here. The left has chosen this language to promote the belief that the military was fully open to gays until Clinton came along and imposed this restriction, but that is nowhere near the truth.

More accurate terminology would be something like “the expansion of DADT.”

This is the kind of thing that pleases no one. The left wants it implemented now. The right wants it implemented never. It's a delaying move to study proper implementation and such, but probably better than nothing.

The part of this that I really like is the cutting of authority for Obama to slash our nuclear arsenal. If he hasn't gotten around to it by now, his window of opportunity will be closed.

Now they need to defund the repeal of DADT. Every last penny. And any delaying tactics, monkey wrenches, whatever they can find to hand.
