For better or for worse, depending on a person’s viewpoint, the Senate Majority Leader ushered in a new era into the U.S. Military arena by leading the fight overturning the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that had existed since 1993… Will any elected officials in Congress suffer a backlash for voting for or against the repealing of the measure or gain new  endorsements for doing the same?

  1. I agree about the joint chiefs and especially about Chairman Mullen. I noticed that too about the two senators from Maine; I don’t think any other state had both its “Repub” senators vote like that…
    More changes are still coming, it appears, regardless of the results of the last elections.

  2. As I recall, the Marine Corps Commandant came out against the legislation and none of other high-ranking officers in the other services voiced much, if any, support for the measure. I don’t count the opinions of the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff simply because they are political appointees who gave up their military any loyalties long ago.

    Harry Reid deserves no kudos for his determined efforts to undermine the strengths of America and in my book he is well qualified to be viewed as one of the “enemies within”.

    Unfortunately, the two senators from Maine, Collins and Snowe, have more than solidified their designations as RINO’s and I will do my best to ensure that they are defeated in their bids for re-election.

  3. The Marines and the Army wernt in favor of the change.Shows the military does not have the influence it once had.
