BREAKING: Senator John McCain Opposes Obama’s Call For Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
“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.”
This, just days after McCain felt the need to counter his wife’s and daughter’s photo session and stance for marriage equality.
Keep banging the bigot drum, Senator McCain. How’s that reelection campaign going?
