McCain: Studies needed on 'don't ask, don't tell'
KTAR-FM 92.3 News Talk Radio Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2010-06-01 | Kevin Tripp

PHOENIX -- Arizona Sen. John McCain says the White House needs to slow down in its push to do away with the ban on gays serving openly in the military.

The House voted last week to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy and the bill is now headed to the Senate.

"I want the people to know that we needed a complete study as to the effect on the impact of our battle effectiveness and morale before we repealed it," McCain told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR. "They're ramming it through without the input even of the chiefs of our services."

Sorry for hijacking this thread for one second…I just heard on radio Gore and wife just separated. Sounds like global cooling.

Again, I apologize.

More studies? More committees? Is this all they know how to do? Now Schumer wants a study on the Israeli problem with Gaza in the last few days. These guys can’t make a decision if their life depended on it.

200 years of studying is enough dontcha think. There’s a reason to hold them down....We don’t need no sargeant running around the base in a tutu.

It doesn’t take much study - once Obama has determined to define military discipline downward.

Too bad McCain, as head of the Armed services committee doesn’t care about some of the boneheaded policies they over see...like charging a wounded Iraq vet for gear he never used!

How many of these Pubbies, who are now opposing its repeal, originally opposed Don't Ask when Clinton was trying to get it passed?

Yes, but John means, “Don’t ask if I’m a Conservative, and don’t tell that I’m a Democrat.”

We also need to do studies on what happens when we make the military full co-ed. Men and women same rooms same showers and all. What’s the difference between letting me shower with the women and letting the fags shower with me?

Biden’s son is a JAG, doubt if he saw any action.

Not sure Mc C son did either come to think of it.

The army in the DADT-less future:

1st Sgt: OK I need two volunteers for a critical mission. It is dangerous and you probably will be killed.

Platoon is very still and quiet. Sgt scan the ranks...Lance and Rod are exchanging serious eye contact.

“OK.. Lance, you and Rod mount up...I mean get ready to get it on. I mean...just Get out of here!

Studies aren’t needed, McCain. A match will do.

Yes, atrophied but apparently performing the simpler functions.

With emphasis on 'simple', i.e., simple minded.

I have been thinking the same thing.

I had always viewed her in not a good light.

Her redemption with me will be if she takes his ass to court.
