In assessing the most urgent and vital concerns to address in his "State of the Union" speech, the president decided to highlight his intended repeal of the military's "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy.
This means that military personnel would no longer have secrets in their underpants, at the same time that the Whitehouse and Justice Department are working hard to make sure Al Qaeda-trained terrorists can protect any secrets in their underpants.
For instance, the Christmas Day "underwear bomber" had only 50 minutes of questioning (while being treated for painful burns) prior to being given the right to remain silent by Eric Holder's office, thereby cutting off any possibility of getting information which might save American lives in the future.
Exactly why and how this appalling decision was made is still a mystery, because the Whitehouse and Justice Department are stonewalling. But for now, "Don't ask" is our government's intelligence policy on terror, and "Don't tell" is the advice they're giving to the Ft. Hood shooter and the Christmas Day bomber.
But returning to the subject of gays in the military, was it really necessary for the president to use this internationally-televised forum to accuse our armed forces of prejudice and insensitivity - especially during a culturally sensitive war?
Of course, there IS a large group of people who are currently mocking and ridiculing gays these days: the Democrats and the mainstream media. We offer in evidence the fact that politicians and liberal pundits universally (and smirkingly) refer to conservative activists as "teabaggers" - clearly intending to use this description of certain male homosexuals as an insult.
In summary, does Hope n' Change think that the president is a terrorist-loving, military-hating, gay-baiting hypocrite? Don't ask...and we won't tell.
