    Again...I'm not calling him a liar. I'm saying that trying to extrapolate that 95% of the marine corps is against DADT based on a show of hands at a town hall meeting is akin to pulling figures out of one's ass. This will be proved by the Pentagon study that shows almost the exact opposite.

    What tune are you going to sing when the final results of the study are released Navy? Will you be a man of integrity and stay true to your word? Or will your outdated homophobic hatefulness be too much to overcome and you'll go back on your word?

    Bull****. You made this claim, then the survey from the Pentagon of over 100,000 active duty members was leaked indicating that most of the military does not care if gays serve openly and 70% think the ban can be repealed without problem. So you found one commander from one of the military branches who argues from a show of hands of some his subordinates that most of those people think there could be problems if gays were allowed to serve openly and you argue that is enough evidence for you to reject repealing this policy.

    Dude you clearly don't want the ban repealed so stop playing this, "if the troops say it is okay" game. We all know that even when it is conclusively shown that a majority don't care, that you will argue that the minority is sizable enough that the ban should not be repealed. Just be honest because nobody is buying it.

    Unauthorized leak of pentagons DADT says
    More than 70 percent of troops said the effect of repealing the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy would be positive, mixed or nonexistent, the Post reported.
    Although that, of course, is not official yet. The official results are due in December.

    The first is accurate. The second is possibly accurate but not yet confirmed.

    You've already said this is what you would do. Why should anyone make a bet for you to do something you claim you were already going to do?

    My only conclusion is that you had no intention of just accepting the military's decision.
