Romney on DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell)

Question: How do you feel about gays serving openly in the military.

Romney: That’s already occurred and I’m not planning on reversing that at this stage. <

Question: But you’re comfortable with it?

Romney: I was not comfortable making the change during a period of conflict, by virtue of the complicating the features of a new program in the middle of two wars going on, but those wars are winding down and moving to that direction at this stage no longer presents that problem.

November 9, 2011: Romney meeting with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register.

Looking for the Drudge/Romney picture. My computer is slow today.

There are two management approaches, and only two.

One is “back to basics” the idea that there are some things so important that if done right, they make a difference.

The other is “details matter”, the idea that after you have the basics right, getting the details right makes you even more effective.

When the government has not passed a budget in 3 years, it seems to me to be time for ‘back to basics’. If we focus on things on which we all agree, we can get the government back under control. After that, we can push for all the other aspects.

So what in my anecdote did you see as defending DADT?

I wish you continued joy in your third marriage.

I am off the market, at least until my children are grown. After that, for an unusual lady, I could try again, but why?. So long as I can be happy by myself, why commit sin in an attempt for greater happiness? If I can’t be happy by myself, why would I think I could make someone else happy?

Interesting how many people don’t think I am conservative.

My recollection is that DADT was passed by Democrats. My belief is that DADT was an abomination, making some soldiers subject to blackmail, making the military chain of command ripe for corruption.

Better to accept, or not accept homosexuals, than to accept them so long as they were not accused.

Homosexuals have served honorably, and dishonorably. Recently Private Bunning has to be the poster child for DADT. Better for such people to be out, or to be in without a grievance.

My recollection is that DADT was passed by Democrats.

You are correct -it was a progressive step on the road to utopia. The camel's nose in the tent. The next step was legalizing homosexual sex in the military.

My belief is that DADT was an abomination, making some soldiers subject to blackmail, making the military chain of command ripe for corruption.

Actually, homosexual sex is an abomination (as well an Obamanantion). DADT was passed to accommodate those suffering from the homosexual disorder who otherwise served with no other problems. It was put in place to deter witch hunts against otherwise good service member. It was not put in place, as you suggest, to demean downtrodden homosexual beings. Homosexual sex has ALWAYS been illegal in the military EVEN under DADT. All that the legalization of homosexual sex in the military has done has empowered the flaming fruits & nuts in addition to empowering morally devoid people like you to come out of the shadows and post your leftist homosexualist thoughts and views here on FR.

Better to accept, or not accept homosexuals, than to accept them so long as they were not accused.

Like so many that promote the homosexual agenda (not surprisingly, RINO's, Romneybots, and Libertarians) you seem intent on conflating a disordered activity with a state of being as if to excuse the disordered activity. I can accept a person without accepting the homosexual sex he/she chooses to engage in. There is such a thing as legitimate discrimination.

Homosexuals have served honorably, and dishonorably. Recently Private Bunning has to be the poster child for DADT. Better for such people to be out, or to be in without a grievance.

What is honorable about homosexual sex? You seem confused. People who choose to engage in homosexual sex are mentally disordered e.g. abnormal and self destructive.

I guess you disagree with the GOP platform like many RINOs?

Regardless your support for homosexualizing the military and Romney the RINO -know that myself and other true conservatives WILL overturn this and many other 'progressive' initiatives. Enjoy it while you can -the pendulum is swinging right and will swing right with a vengeance!
