(Reuters) - The Obama administration sought Thursday to strictly limit the reach of a recent court decision striking down the U.S. military rule that bans openly gay men and women from serving in the armed forces.
The administration's stance, revealed in papers filed in federal court in California, came two days after the U.S. Senate blocked legislation that would have repealed the policy known as "don't ask, don't tell."
President Barack Obama campaigned in 2008 on a promise of a full repeal, and that vow has emerged as a big political issue for the gay and lesbian community before congressional elections on November 2

Looks like Obama has one redeeming quality: he knows gays in the military would be a disaster.
He wants to lift the ban, but he doesn't want it coming from a podunk judge in a minor appeals court.
Obama and the left-wing know that this decision would be overturned and know not to attach themselves to it. This is a strategic move.
Hopefully there are those in the military who are preparing to file civil rights lawsuits on behalf of the men and woman who would be forced to shower and bunk with people who openly profess their perversion for the same gender. It is a double standard to seperate men and women based on heterosexual tendencies but then force people to shower and bunk with these perverts.
This is about making sure the judiciary doesn't overstep their bounds, and this judge surely did. Unfortunately for the socialists this is one time they can't take advantage of it.

There won’t be a military to defend us if they push this policy through.

This is sneaky. The article states : Instead, the Department of Justice argued that the immediate effect of her decision should be to prohibit the military from discharging openly gay service members who belong to the Log Cabin Republicans.
There will now be a rush to join The Log Cabin Republicans.
Oh man, the KosNazis are going to FLIP OUT over this. Look for Tim Gill and other big money gays to close their wallets for the next 40 days. Awesome!
After some embraced the Log Cabin Republicans - who have been saying they're just republicans who are homosexual - at CPAC, they go and bring their DADT case to court. According to their actions, and also this article, they are now a "gay rights group":
Clarke Cooper, executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group that challenged "don't ask, don't tell" in court, added, "We are extremely disappointed."
It's obviously time for them to go their own way, and become their own established party. At the very least, CPAC should cut ties with the Log Cabin Republicans and also GOProud. Both groups are infiltrators - what else could be their purpose if their members aren't joining the Republican Party, or conservative organizations, simply as individuals?
Thanks for pinging it!
Crazy how the current administration are just sneaky, slimey evil weasels!
I hope the military is getting more and more disgusted with this crew including the fiend in chief.
Exactly. They are just militant homosexual activists groups pushing their agenda wherever they can. They already have the entire Dem party in thrall, now they want to take over the GOP.
** the rate of new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the U.S. is more than 44 times that of other men (range: 522989 per 100,000 MSM vs. 12 per 100,000 other men).
Don’t bet on it. Obummer was hammered by the queer community at a recent gathering and he genuinely wants open gays in the military. I think this is much more directed at congress’s defeat of DADT.
This does have everything to do with gays in the military, but more or less, indiscrete gays in the military. Open sexuality is generally always against military policy, it is wrong, while I am serving in the field to commit indiscrete sexual acts with other military personnel. Whether you are gay or not, it does not matter, you should keep your sexuality discrete. Heterosexuals and Homosexuals are obliged to keep about the same conduct. Now there could be issues with some gay man worrying about showing some picture of his “boyfriend” or his “same-sex domestic partner” back at home, but that’s a separate matter. The real fact is that DADT is the best policy we have in place now for keeping decent morale in the military. As sex acts amongst members of the military are the problem, it asks the same obligation. DADT is politicians’ best propaganda tool for looking good to homosexuals.
I agree with you wholeheartedly that the judiciary is a problem. I have seen judges favor everything from illegal immigration to abortion, even legislate on the matter, and it’s only a matter of time that the judiciary will bankrupt this nation, until someone counteracts them.
Actually, I think we are talking about different things. The administration does want to repeal “Don’t ask Don’t Tell”, but to do it this way opens them up to being overturned on much of their agenda by other judges.
During the case in court they didn’t even present a defense, they just argued the history of the rule. They didn’t want it affirmed, which would later be a problem when they wanted to repeal DADT, they wanted it killed on procedural grounds. When that didn’t happen they fell back to contesting it and having it die in the courts.
