According to the Washington Times, one of first group of his supporters he intends to turn his back is the homosexual community.
President-elect Barack Obama will not move for months, and perhaps not until 2010, to ask Congress to end the military's decades-old ban on open homosexuals in the ranks, two people who have advised the Obama transition team on this issue say.
Repealing the ban was an Obama campaign promise.
Sorry guys and gals, you won't be able to serve your country as other patriotic Americans, who just happen to be hetrosexual, openly just yet. Our Dear Leader has other plans.
Just to keep things straight, there have always been homosexuals in the American military. There were probably fellows at Valley Forge who were doing more than just "sharing body warmth" over that cold winter. That our Dear Leader won't address this right off if a kick in the teeth to one of his core groups of supporters.
As that Icon of Conservatism Senator Barry Goldwater said, "You don't have to be straight to shoot straight."
