The Democrats' very, very fearful and haplessly unskillful leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, is saying that there are no sponsors for a bill to repeal DADT, even though a 69% of Americans oppose it. I guess he decided that a game of Hot Potato was appropriate on this:
"'I haven't identified any sponsors,' he said. 'My hope is that it can be done administratively.' A Democratic aide later clarified that Reid was speaking about the possibility of using an executive order to suspend discharges or perhaps halting enforcement of the policy by changing departmental regulations within the Department of Defense. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs has continually said in recent months that President Barack Obama believes the only 'durable solution' to repealing the military's gay ban would be to do so through legislative action."
It's a popular bill that has 144 co-sponsors in the House. Couldn't they have found two Senators from the midwest to sponsor it?
