Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Thursday he’ll introduce a free-standing bill to repeal the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
Lieberman said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) agreed to bring legislation to the floor to do away with the military’s prohibition on openly gay and lesbian service members.
The Connecticut independent said he would introduce the legislation as soon as today with language that mirrors an amendment to the defense authorization bill.
Oh this is RICH! I’m sure Mitch McConnell is going to let Susan Collins help pass a free standing pro-LGBT bill. And do they really expect us to believe that amendments and time won’t matter to to Collins and the ReTHUGS the time?
Will Collins bring any other ReTHUGlicans along? She didn’t today now did she.
And not to mention the fact that even if the bill were to be introduced and passed, it would have to go to the House for passage where Ike Skelton is the chair of the House Armed Services Committee and is a proud homophobe. Pelosi may have a way around him, but this feels like more and more drama, forced by Obama’s refusal to allow the finding of DADT as unconstitutional to stand
This is a bad joke at our expense. Just something to quell the immediate outrage.
One can only imagine what White House and HRC strategy on this one. (Probably like the last time NO STRATEGY!)
Fuck us once shame on us. Fuck us as many times and continually as you have and if we don’t do anything and stand up we are nothing but abusive loving sluts.
DON’T FALL FOR THIS HYPE AND LIES AGAIN!! This is like an abusive husband bringing flowers. “I’m sorry, lets try again. I promise I’ll be better.”
Well it won’t be and we shouldn’t fall for it again.
At the ballroom of the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City last night Obama raised $1.4 million at receptions and a dinner for the House and Senate Democratic campaign committees, and he also drew the ire and anger of LGBT Activist. Obama had just finished saying it’s “nice just to stop by and see some friends” when the activist began shouting. “”Obama broken promises KILL”
The hecklers were so loud Obama went off-script several times to address them, insisting he’s increased AIDS funding and is working to overturn the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. He told them to go shout at Republicans, noting that a vote on repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” failed this week in the Senate, with Republicans united in opposition. (Yea and you did so much for it to pass Barack)
“Some of those signs should be going up at the other folks’ events, and folks should be hollering at the other folks’ event. Because the choice in November could not be clearer,” the president said. Then switching to the fear technique “We heard your point. And as I said before, we increased AIDS funding. … The people who will take over if we don’t focus on the election, I promise you, will cut AIDS funding.”
“When I was running for office … maybe we gave people the wrong impression about how change happens,” Obama said
Or maybe you just lied. T:the blame Republicans” is getting very stale because we do blame the Republicans. But we also blame you and the Democratic Party who made promised that you had no intention of keeping just to take our money and our support not keep and for your lackluster support. Not only one side is innocent here and I refure to play the lesser of two evils. You are BOTH guilty for me still being a second class citizen/
We can’t scare the Republicans they are all nutsy koo-koo. But hhopefully though we will be able to scare you Obama and the Democrats.
Major Mike Almy, who was serving in Iraq was kicked out of the military after the government snooped into his private email for the specific fact to see if he was gay. Yesterday
Grandpa Munster BLATANTLY lied to reporters and had a mini-meltdown during an interview, repeating the same phrase over and over denying that it didn’t happen that way. (It ‘s also VERYcreepy watching McCain melt down like that. Kind makes you wonder what kind of president he would have been. *Shudder!*
Rachel Maddow had Major Mile Almy on her show last night. And like Almy, I want to see McCain climb up on his step ladder and look into Almy’s eyes and tell him that that doesn’t happen
*Oh and Megan McCain. I personally think that you are full of shit now. Because regardless of the fact that he’s your father, how could you “love him” as you say after all thats he’s done.
