Four Words for those who went on and on and on about this during the Democratic Primaries and blogged on and on AND ON about how superior TOTUS would be to Big Dawg on this..
A change to the controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays in the military will be delayed despite promises by the Obama administration to overturn the rule, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Sunday.
“The president and I feel like we’ve got a lot on our plates right now and let’s push that one down the road a little bit,” Gates told “FOX News Sunday.”
In January, President Obama’s spokesman, Robert Gibbs, was asked whether his boss would overturn “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Gibbs’ reply — videotaped for YouTube — was unequivocal.
“You don’t hear politicians give a one-word answer much. But it’s ‘Yes,’” Gibbs said.
But Gates now says the Pentagon will continue to enforce the existing policy, which bars service members from proclaiming their sexual orientation and commanding officers from asking about it. However, the policy states that if it becomes known that a service member is gay, he or she is to be removed from the military.
“It continues to be the law and any change in policy would require a change in the law,” Gates said. “We will follow the law, whatever it is.
“That dialogue, though, has really not progressed very far at this point in the administration,” he added.

Possibly the greatest of the Brill Building classics. Someone put this up awhile back but it disappeared, so here it is again. Robert Goulet was just goofing around but Steve Allen put down rock and roll every chance he could. Well, he’s gone now and Mary Weiss is still singing. So there.
General Motors Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner is stepping down as head of the embattled automaker CNBC has learned Sunday.
Wagoner’s resignation comes as the company awaits president Barack Obama’s reports on efforts to save GM and Chrysler
It is unclear if Wagoner’s resignation is one of the stipulations for the federal government to lend billions more to GM. But sources close to the talks say tough conditions will be attached to any future aid.
President Obama will update the public on the Treasury Department’s next step in helping GM and Chrysler on Monday afternoon.
A senior White House official did not deny to CNBC that the Obama administration influenced Wagoner’s departure.
Asked if the administration forced him out, the senior official replied, “‘forced’ is a little strong.”
Wagoner has served as CEO since 2000. Under his leadership, GM has steadily lost market share in North America while becoming the dominant automaker in China, where it is currently number one

The IT folks tell me there is an April Fools Virus out and about…MiM will have autoposts up for a few days around April 1st…..
We’ll be back up in time for the G20 wrapup, LOL…..
A computer virus rumored to go into effect on April Fools Day may have already infected millions of PCs, according to some computer experts.
They said a virus may well be worming its way through the bowels of some people’s computers, and on April 1 the computer world will either be the victim of a huge hoax or a huge headache.
“It’s triggered by date, but April 1 is supposed to be the date this virus is executed,” said lead Geek Choice technician Mike Burns. “When it hits, I’ll take care of it. That is my job.”Burns said the virus known as the Conficker Worm, which is believed to activate on April Fool’s Day, is a very real threat.
