Geidner takes apart White House comparison between federal workplace protections and DADT repeal

Chris Geidner of Metro Weekly offers an excellent analysis of how White House spokesman Jay Carney is flat-out wrong in justifying the President's refusal to sign an executive order on LGBT workplace protections for federal contractors by comparing it to the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

Here's just one piece: "First, the control of Congress was in the Democrats' hands in the 111th Congress." Yes. Saying that this needs to be done by Congress means that it won't be done anytime soon. What happened to the President's own statement, "We Can't Wait"? Ah, yes, he wasn't talking about us. Mr. President, your intransigence on this is not helping. Whoever you are listening to on this is giving you bad advice.

HRC has issued an action alert.
