Mixner: "Time Is Running Out" On DADT Issue

6a00d8341c90b153ef0133f2170e69970b

Activist David Mixner today posts "five suggestions for change" regarding Don't Ask, Don't Tell, arguing that:

"Even for the watered-down and questionably useful compromise on DADT, time is running out. Congress will come back in session and be on a fast track to recess as soon as possible in this volatile election year. With analysts like Charlie Cook predicting that the House of Representatives might go Republican, Democrats will be even more leery of taking on anything that smacks of risks. Once they adjourn for recess, my guess is that they will meet only briefly after Labor Day."

His suggestions for how to proceed revolve around tough love for the Democrats, including demanding President Obama exercise his undeniable power to issue a stop-loss order until the military's report on DADT is issued.

As always, a must-read.
