''The use of the word 'compromise,' I think, is a little bit too generous. A compromise assumes both sides have done something or given something. We all know that this is not a compromise, it's a delay. What the President has done, saying that 'Congress should repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell in the law.' And it will be a long time before the President and the Pentagon do anything to enact any kind of nondiscrimination.... There's two things that have to happen to fully repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell. The President's asking for the first to happen, and is doing absolutely nothing for the second.''

Choi has twice been arrested for handcuffing himself to the White House's Pennsylvania Avenue fence in protest. While some have applauded his seemingly defiant actions, many have criticized his choice to wear his Army uniform during his political protests. (Joy Behar / CNN)
