Obama administration expected to appeal ruling on gays in military – CNN Political Ticker – CNN.com Blogs

Washington (CNN) – The Obama administration is expected to appeal as soon as Wednesday a federal judge’s ruling that halted the Defense Department from enforcing its policy that bars openly gay people from military service, according to senior administration officials familiar with the government’s plans.

U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Philips issued an injunction Tuesday that bans enforcement of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy throughout the military services.

While the government has up to 60 days to file an appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court in San Francisco, California, officials familiar with the case said that could happen in the next day or two.

I guess I must be confused…. I thought that when Obama ran for President, he said he didn’t support DADT and would work to repeal it…  now his administration is challenging a judges ruling?  I guess I’m less than stunned since he also said he didn’t support National Health Care and now he’s the sponsor.  

 Atleast he’s consistently inconsistent!
