SOTU 2010: It could have gone another way

by Jeremy Hooper
1/27/2010 Screen Shot 2010-01-27 At 11.06.52 Pm-1Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's remarks regarding "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" in his State of the Union address:

"In his State of the Union address, President Obama asked Congress to repeal the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy. I am immensely proud of, and thankful for, every American who wears the uniform of our country, especially at a time of war, and I believe it would be a mistake to repeal the policy.

"This successful policy has been in effect for over fifteen years, and it is well understood and predominantly supported by our military at all levels. We have the best trained, best equipped, and most professional force in the history of our country, and the men and women in uniform are performing heroically in two wars. At a time when our Armed Forces are fighting and sacrificing on the battlefield, now is not the time to abandon the policy."
Statement By Senator John McCain On Don't Ask Don't Tell [McCain]

Well the Senator does seem to know a thing or two about gays and defense. After all, his words fully remind LGBT voters about a bullet that he once helped us dodge!

Your thoughts

Wow, would I LOVE to be a fly on the wall at dinnertime at the McCain house now that his wife's gone and done that NO H8 shoot. Jesus.

And we are listening to this man for why?
The Cults of Jesus and the Republican puppets in Washington, DC can howl, whine, be Obstructionist and "spin" any way they want and the world will go on.
This is McCain pandering to the Cults of Jesus (there is nothing Christian about them) and on the campaign trail already.
His head was spinning over Cindy's No H8 campaign so he's just doing the bluster.
Fossils belong in museums and not in Congress.

He's gotta let everyone know that he is still alive. If he had won, then he probably would be six feet under by now, and Palin would have been giving this SOTU... and there would be bread and soup lines... and homeless encampments called McPalinvilles... It could have been much different ...

So basically, he's saying that he doesn't trust our servicemen and women to be professional and do their jobs while treating their fellow soldiers with respect and dignity. That's kind of an insult to our troops to say that the military won't be able to cope with the end of DADT.
