I’m sorry, I meant to mention how contemptible this statement was by the president yesterday on the failure of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal in the Senate. So I’ll correct the oversight.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid decided to link DADT repeal to the Defense spending bill, just so he could get this kind of reaction from Obama and others if Republicans voted it down.
I am extremely disappointed that yet another filibuster has prevented the Senate from moving forward with the National Defense Authorization Act. Despite having the bipartisan support of a clear majority of Senators, a minority of Senators are standing in the way of the funding upon which our troops, veterans and military families depend. This annual bill has been enacted each of the past 48 years, and our armed forces deserve nothing less this year.
How much gall can Obama’s gall bladder contain? Plenty, because this statement TAKES A LOT OF GALL.
Work the issue, Mr. President, but please spare us the disingenuous and divisive accusation that Republicans don’t care about the nation’s troops.
The person who is having a problem with his give-a-shit with regard to the military is Reid, who decided to HOLD MILITARY FUNDING HOSTAGE by PLAYING POLITICS WITH IT and linking approval of funds for the armed services to revoking Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
I thought you abhorred these kinds of tactics, Mr. President?
Mr. President? Are you there?
