This was more or less the point made by 77 Congressmembers* in a letter delivered to Obama on Monday.
Obama's response, in full:
President Obama remains committed to a legislative repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, which he believes will provide a durable and lasting solution to this issue. He welcomes the commitment of these members to seeing Congress take action.
WTF — "If you do all the heavy lifting, I'll pick up a pen?"
At this point, Obama is going to have to cure goddam cancer to get me back on board.
(* Thanks to my Representative Cleaver, for being man enough to sign on.)
