The Department Of Justice Files Injunction Against DADT Being Ruled Unconstitutional – Read The White House Press Release And The Injuction Filing

The Obama Administration’s The Department Of Justice waited until the very last minute today filed an objection to the injunction requested by lawyers for the Log Cabin Republicans last week following a judge’s declaration earlier this month that the law is unconstitutional. (Cowards)

The Advocate reports:

“‘[A]ny injunction in this case must be limited to plaintiff LCR and the claims it asserts on behalf of its members – and cannot extend to non-parties – plaintiff’s requested world-wide injunction of the statute fails as a threshold matter,’ assistant U.S. attorney Paul Freeborne wrote. Freeborne also argued that an injunction would preclude the government both from litigating other legal challenges to DADT or considering the terms of a stay barring discharges of gay and lesbian servicemembers.”

Americablog adds:

“Finally, the DOJ seems awfully concerned that if LCR wins this case, then the Obama administration will no longer be able to find that gay servicemembers hurt morale and cohesion. Why is the Obama administration so concerned about losing the ‘right’ to discriminate against gay and lesbian servicemembers.  This is not the brief of a party that wants to find a way out of this mess. The Obama administration is aggressively defending DADT when the Obama administration doesn’t have to do this. See here, here and here.”

Well, Obama has done just about everything they could think of that would ensure Republican victory in November.  They know the Right hates them and they have pissed off the Progressive Left.  WHO exactly do they think is going to vote for them?

So now we ait to see what the Judge decides.  This never ends.
