Congress Close to Pushing Repeal of Military Gay Ban Across Finish Line Published December 18, 2010 | FoxNews.com Print Email Share Comments (3740) Text Size AP2010 A supporter of a bill to overturn the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy holds up a portrait of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who opposes the amendment to repeal the military's 17-year-old ban on openly gay troops, Friday, Dec. 10, 2010, during a rally on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP) WASHINGTON -- After two failed attempts, Congress appears poised to repeal the Clinton-era ban on gays serving openly in the military, with Senate set for a historic vote that could seal a major triumph for President Obama, liberals and the gay community.

Turn out the lights, the part is over.. This country is done!
I mourn for the past America. Obama’s fundamental transformation is almost complete.
Of course now he and his Obamamedia goes about ‘appearing’ centrist, so he can get re elected !
Evil does have a face.
The commie lib fags have infiltrated America’s last respectable institution. What a shame.
I hope the Commandant of the Marine Corps, and Chiefs of Staff of the Army and Air Force take retirement now to show their contempt for their political masters. Those masters hate the military and the miltary should hate them in return. As for the five Republicans who voted Yes, both Maine senator, Voinivich, Scott Brown and Obama’s replacement, your day is coming soon.
So basically if you join the miliary, you may die so women can have an abortion and and a guy can sodomize another man... Good God, that is something worth dying for!!
Obama clearly traded Homosexualization of the military for DREAM, which Dems can keep as a campaign issue, for the Tax cuts.
And it keeps his whacko base in line. This is the biggy for them.
The elites have won again.
(WP report from the Republican 2006 LAME-duck...compare and contrast)
Congress will convene on Tuesday for what some fear will be the lamest of lame-duck sessions, and GOP leaders have decided to take a minimalist approach before turning over the reins of power to the Democrats. Rather than a final surge of legislative activity, Congress will probably wrap up things after a single, short week of work. They have even decided to punt decisions on annual government spending measures to the Democrats next year.
There is a lot of battle fatigue among members, probably on both sides of the aisle, said Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), usually a reliable conservative firebrand. Contrary to popular belief, members of Congress are human beings. They have a certain shelf life and a certain amount of energy to be drawn on. Were tired.
Anguished over the Democrats victory on Nov. 7 and the tumult that has followed, GOP lawmakers want to get out of town. One senior Senate Republican aide called hopes for substantive legislation delusional.
Much of the problem is as prosaic as office space, GOP aides said. Lawmakers were forced to vacate their offices on Friday, and few of them want to hang around Washington with no place to sit. Retiring House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas (R-Calif.) got angry during a meeting of committee chairmen, demanding to know how he was supposed to complete work on the business tax extension bill without an office, according to one GOP aide present in the meeting.
There should be teabagger platoons for the homos.
This is part of the plan to clear the good guys out of the military. Then the lib leaders in the military will have no problem using the military on civilians.
Watch for return of compulsory draft.
I’m supposed to expect gays to protect me and my country?
Then next will be rioting in the streets to protest the tyranny of the draft!
Absolutely right. McConnell screwed this lame duck session up big time. The result:
Hispanics pissed at GOP over DREAM
Gays and lefties placated and back in the Dem fold because of DADT
Moderates mostly happy about “Obama’s tax compromise”
How the stupid party could manage to turn November’s big win into this cluster is beyond me. I’m going to go cry for a while.
Buy guns and ammo now while you can. When the Military is too busy playing with each other we may have to defend the country ourselves.
“This is part of the plan to clear the good guys out of the military. Then the lib leaders in the military will have no problem using the military on civilians.”
When do we start talking secession...
