This will go over like a turd in the punchbowl.
Can't the CinC just end the policy himself?
No, it takes an act of Congress to change the UCMJ.

Wow, he's really putting himself out on a limb in an attempt to keep at least one of his promises.
I think this one will pretty much ensure he doesn't have a second term.
Not really. He's putting it forth to congress with his support. Congress could tell him to fuck off and he could shrug and say "Well, I tried."
Only people who are going to be overly concerned about this are the people who didn't vote for Obama in 2008 and aren't going to vote for him in 2012 already. Right now, Obama is doing here what he should of done in the first place, act like the Liberal candidate he ran as.
I agree. Personally, I'm not opposed to homosexuals serving openly. I am in a minority in that opinion though. That said, I do have a problem wth politicans using the Military as a vehicle for social change. The GOP won't even have to fling this back at him. If he mentions it tonight, the media will fling it for them.
What's so funny? You don't fuck with something that works just fine in an attempt to make yourself look like you accomplished something when you haven't done shit.
And THIS particular policy sure as fuck isn't broke.
