Skip to comments.Toomey to Support Donít Ask / Donít Tell Repeal
Posted on 12/16/2010 11:42:12 AM PST by OldDeckHand
Senator-Elect Pat Toomey has just issued a statement supporting repeal of Dont Ask/Dont Tell.
As Ive said previously, my highest priority is to have the policy that best enables our armed services to do their job, Senator-Elect Toomey said. Our civilian and professional military leadership have now spoken and said we should repeal Dont Ask Dont Tell. I would support a free-standing measure to do so.
If Majority Leader Reid keeps his word, the freestanding repeal measure passed by the House yesterday will be voted on in the Senate in the lame duck, before Sen.-Elect Toomey is seated. Still, the support of a credible conservative like Toomey is a sure sign that repeal is likely to pass.

“Toomey to Support Dont Ask / Dont Tell Repeal”
Well someone just signaled that he is not interested in being on a presidential ticket in 2012.
Ugh...and I voted for this ass-clown. Of all the things to be working on in these times. Amazing that our government is in the business of destroying this country.
Well I thought my wonderful state Pennsylvania was going in the right direction....Maybe Bush was right after all.
This is a joke right? I thought he was a real conservative, socially too?
I guess this didn’t come up in the vetting process.
Here’s what I think: people who serve in Congress should have the ability to understand the concept of long-term or unintended consequences. I don’t believe many of them do. So it’s not enough to vote on what sounds good or feels right. But how do we figure out who has the WISDOM to be in the Senate or the House?
I suppose if we are premiting homo activists to molest and sexually degrade children in the public schools, we should let the mlitary deal with it too. We are doomed.
The only way to possibly stop DADT is the House rejects or changes the Bush Tax cut extension bill that they are voting on today, and the Repubs stick to their fig leaf promise not to vote for any other legislation until it passes both houses.
This is making me sick. I'm completely convinced that America has become so totally diabolically disorientated that we're incapable of saving ourselves at this point.
Keep dreaming leftists...
I get why Brown jumped ship - he does, after all represent perhaps the most socially liberal state in the Union. But Toomey represents a fairly othodox conservative state, at least on the social issues. I don't think that there's nearly the clamor in PA as there clearly is in MA to repeal DADT. Plus, Toomey just got elected, and Brown is up for reelection in less than 24-mos. Toomey couldn't keep his yap shut?

Army, Air Force, Marine Chiefs Against DADT Repeal
Dec 3, 2010 By JOHN MCCORMACK
At today’s Senate hearing, three of the four service chiefs expressed opposition to repealing the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy on gays in the military. “My recommendation is that we should not implement repeal at this time,” said Marine Corps commandant General James F. Amos (watch his opening statement here). “I cannot reconcile, nor turn my back on the Marines most engaged in the day-to-day work of operations in Afghanistan,” said Amos. The Pentagon’s survey showed that 67% of Marines in combat arms units—infantry, artillery, armor—believe repealing DADT would have a negative effect on their unit’s performance.
Toomey is a POS but do not post filth on here. We have to put up with these old pro-obama shill anti-birthers but do not post filth,
hmm. I distinctly remember cautioning everyone that Toomey isn’t as conservative as he’d like you to think or as some on FR tried to paint him. After all, this is a guy who historically was pretty pro-UN, was favorable of Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination, & voted for the appoval of RU486. I was flamed & called a troll.
Bottom line is, if you wanna be a Tea Party candidate (which Toomey claimed he was) then expect to have our feet held to the fire. I’ll be calling his office reminding him of this. I had to hold my nose to vote for this Sotomayor-lover.
Good grief!! Freaking idiots everywhere!!
You got that right. i voted for this twerp; he is going to hear from me as soon as I find out how to contact him.
Who’da thunk it.
“Fragging” someone just took on a-HOLE new meaning!
They are unable to think things through to their logical end. They ride an emotional high of “fairness” by which they invite chaos and degradation of society. Civilized Society needs boundaries to survive, as soon as you set a boundary, by definition, some group of people are going to be outside that boundary. By trying to be “fair” to everyone you remove all boundaries and therefore invite chaos.
And you think it won’t?
The country is burning to the ground and all our esteemed leaders are concerned about are the feelings of guys who enjoy butt-sex with other guys
Put all the queers in the same unit, send them to the fiercest fighting, repeat as necessary.
“In the rear with the gear” soon will have a whole new meaning.
When I first read this, I forgot that he can’t even vote until January. Why is there a need to even say this? Before today, I would have been blasted to he!! for saying this, but I believe that he is a little light in the loafers and I am serious. He definitely doesn’t seem 100 percent hetro for sure. I did vote for him of course because of his conservative views or what I thought were conservative views.
This scumbag Toomey has just lost me.
I want to throw up.
I guess Mitch Daniels call to just give up on social issues had merit to Republicans. Screw conservative people.
Funny how quickly they forgot THIS lesson from Massachusetts...
New Mass. Republican Party Chairman says party will no longer oppose same-sex “marriage”, abortion, other “social issues”
April 8, 2009
Mass. Republicans lose ALL statewide & Congressional races
Nov 4, 2010
This is truly disappointing.
How much freaking money did I send his campaign again?
While they wave the white flag, the dems are shoving this social crap up our collective rear ends..........is anyone surprised?
It’s six years before he pays.
Question: How long would I remain employed if I constantly harped about being an "open heterosexual" and discussed how often I did it, with whom and with what specific methods of mating?
I give up. It’s time to replace the Republican Party.
We need to “Versailles” Washington!!
And so it begins
Someone remind me again why there shouldn’t be a movement for the creation of a viable, conservative third-party.
I know, I know. We don’t want to fracture the conservative vote and hand an election to the liberals, blah, blah, blah. But it’s becoming all too clear that voting for the GOP is about the same as voting for DemocRATS, just a more deceptive, less-fearless version of them.
To make matters worse, Toomey is a liar. Both the Marine and Army commanding generals said at congressional hearings that they DO NOT support repeal. Wow... and I enthusiastically voted for this homo-pandering Toomey. Never again.
I think it is time for an investigation as to what goes on during “orientation” for new Congresspeople.
I’m suspecting lobotomies, injections of mind-warping substances or the presentation of blackmail photographs.
And what better day to start than today...the anniversary of the ORIGINAL Tea Party!
Call his office or write him.
Good grief. I’m really to the point of having all operations in Afghanistan and everywhere else just shut down and end, just to keep safe the decent folks in uniform so they can survive and safely rotate OUT of the new Brokeback Armed Services. God knows no truly decent American will enlist after all this.
>Put all the queers in the same unit, send them to the fiercest fighting, repeat as necessary.
Whose to say the opposite won’t be done, perhaps for “Affirmative action”.
I would love to see the military go on strike.
Will this get their attention in the District of Criminals?
THE POINT AND GOAL of the policy, in a nutshell.
No "decent Americans" in the military.
Obey, obey, obey, obey....Baaah, baaah.
