The White House (Kind Of) Responds To The Ruling That "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" Is Unconstitutional

Andy Towle over at Towleroad reached out to the White House today to get a response to yesterday’s ruling declaring “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” unconstitutional.

This is the response that he recieved from White House spokesman Shin Inouye:

“The Justice Department is studying the decision, including the question of its scope and immediate effect and we expect them to announce their next steps after that review is completed. The President remains committed to legislative repeal of DADT, and he will continue to work with lawmakers to achieve that goal this fall. And he will continue to work closely with Secretary Gates, Admiral Mullen, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff on an ongoing study of how to best implement the repeal.”

Blah, blah, “study,” blah, fuckin’ blah.
 
“The President remains committed to legislative repeal of DADT”  
 
Translation:   He’s going to let this go to Congress where it will fail miserably after the November Republican Reclamation of Congress, which was doubtless the plan all along.
 
Know what Obama.  Fuck you I want my vote back!
