GOP “far out of step,” “not being very intelligent” on DADT


Unfortunately, in addition to people like John BONEr and Eric Can’tor “not being very intelligent” on the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy, I’d add that the GOP is also motivated by: 1) homophobia; and 2) the desire to defeat Obama and the Democrats on everything they want. Neither are good reasons to be against repealing this stupid, ineffective, obsolete, self-defeating, harmful, discriminatory, wildly unpopular policy.  Enough talk about this, we know the answer. Just ditch it. Now.

    Wow. When George Will says Republicans are “not being very intelligent,” you know that the GOP is on the wrong track.

    I firmly believe that the Republicans – who have just seen their “deregulation, slash taxes but not spending, attack minorities, start dubious wars” so-called philosophy totally discredited – think they have no other options except to try to oppose President Obama and the Democrats at every turn.

    Plus, they have yoked themselves to the far-right fringe Christian movement on social issues, and they are trapped there.
