Why should they believe him?

We've previously noted how a core group of the Messiah's supporters was beginning to realize that it was being played like a cheap fiddle.

Well, the grumblings are now getting much louder:

"President Barack Obama restated his campaign pledge to allow homosexual men and women to serve openly in the military, but many in his audience of gay activists were left wondering when he would make good on the promise.

'I will end 'don't ask-don't tell,'' Obama said Saturday night to a standing ovation from the crowd of about 3,000 at the annual dinner of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay civil rights advocacy group. He offered no timetable or specifics and he acknowledged some may be growing impatient."

This change could be unilaterally made by Obama at any time, wouldn't cost a dime of taxpayer money and would garner him some much-needed credibility among his faithful followers by showing that he's willing to fulfill at least one of the many flowery campaign promises he made to so many people.

So what's the holdup? We honestly don't know, unless it's a fear of upsetting yet another group of his fervent supporters, the religious black community.

It certainly isn't tentativeness, because as we all know (mostly to our detriment), the President has shown a ready willingness to blunder about making massive changes in just about every other facet of government, whether he knows anything about the objects of his meddling or not.
