Skip to comments.Graham: If 'Don't ask' repeal doesn't go well, Obama owns it

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) does not see a political lift for President Obama in the imminent repeal of the Clinton-era policy banning gays from serving openly in the military.
I think the people who are supportive of 'Dont ask, dont tell were probably supportive of the president to begin with, he told reporters in the Capitol.
Most Americans, I think, hope it works out. I certainly do. I think it is going to be problematic and whatever problems it has, [Obama] owns, Graham added.
Obama. Owns. It.
Pray for our troops!
You tell him, Senator!
You think wrong a**hat.
You tell him, Senator!
Graham, I suggest you and your colleagues watch it very closely to build a case to reinstate DADT. Obama, the Dims, or the lame Media is not going to do it.
It may be true that Obama owns the outcome. I can think of no scenario where the outcome is good. Maybe every Marine discovers his inner-tolerant-liberal-feminine self? (Okay, that wouldn’t be good either.) But in the meantime, dozens if not hundreds or even thousands of good soldiers will either be punished for “intolerance,” or will leave the service. No matter what, the United States will be the weaker for this “change.”
Perhaps that’s the legacy Obama wants to own.
He is a **m*s*xual. What do you expect. The GOP should have fillibustered this. This is disgusting. The House GOP in 2011 might as well cut every weapons system 50% because the military will be a joke now. The slimy and crooked defense companies will howl.
Isn’t Linda still an officer? She’ll be able to come out now.
No, Lindsay, if it passes YOU will own it.
“I think it is going to be problematic ...”
He would know.

Obama owns PFC Manning, and so does Lindsey. He’s your boy!
I think this is the point. Gays could already serve if they wanted. This was a victory for those who demand not just tolerance but approval--and a stern warning to anyone who will not give that approval.
No, Lindsay, baby. Obama won’t “own” it. America will. Much to our great and probably everlasting regret.
“No matter what, the United States will be the weaker for this change.
I’ve felt for the longest time that weakening the military was the secret goal of all this. (The gays argue that DADT was “discriminatory”... but there was nothing preventing them from serving.). It’s not simply that many radical, Sixties-type Libs hate the US- they also want a weakened military so they can cut defense spending. (The latter reason is also why I think Ron Paul voted for this in the House)
Response: The problem with this statement being the fact that problems will quite simply NOT be reported. The media veil of silence is now descending over the military.
They tried, but there were 63 votes for cloture.
Add another disaster to his already bulging resume'.
