    So rather than address the fact that all politicians do this, you only focus on the left?

    Why is that? Oh yeah, because it beings me to the FACT, you are partisan.

    Point is, all politicians do this, yet you focused on the left. Thanks for proving your partisanship and giving a free pass for the right to do the same thing.

    Thank you for proving my original point without any rebutal.

    The point was addressed, as well as your excusing the right x5.

    No wonder conservatives are losing elections, they are listening to you

    Can you cite an eample of this on the left? I've seen numerous occasions where they say they arent going to do something they think they should because it would cost them politically -- gun control, for instance.

    And by the way... "he did it too" isnt a defense.
    Let's use your example of the Iraq war:

    During the leadup to the Iraq war, it was increasingly popular with people. And yet, when the vote on the Iraq Resolution took place, 126 democrats in the House voted against it, and 21 democrats in the Senate voted against it, despite the fact that their vote was bound to be unpopular and might cost them political power. By your very logic, that means your signature is clearly flawed

    I know this is asking alot of you, but can you actually source this letter, so we can find out the truth about it?

    I know it sounds like a huge leap for you, to provide supporting docs for you comments, but I don't have a problem fulfilling your request.

    Despite mixed signals from the Obama administration, a distinguished group of retired leaders called Flag & General Officers for the Military has taken a stand in support of the 1993 law stating that homosexuals are not eligible to serve openly in the military. That law, frequently mislabeled ďDonít Ask, Donít Tell,Ē has been upheld by the courts as constitutional several times. It enjoys solid support among active duty military men and women who recognize its positive effect on recruiting, morale and readiness.

    The letter:

    Flag & General Officers for the Military

    PDF link to all the officers that signed the letter:

    If you need anything else, don't hesitate to ask.
