    Doesn't appear that DADT is affecting military recruiting.

    Even though, I am for repeal of DADT, I just love watching liberal heads explode.

    POLL's are unreliable for SO many reasons, the statistical correlations are only as sound as the controls. My gut tells me that rednecks, in da hood balcks, and Latino's all would NOT be in favor of it, nor do I think any poll taken by active combat arms military would deliver the same result. Aside from my gut, on other issues pertaining to gays, the gays lose big time, and they lose not because of the republican vote, but because of the democratic vote. Take from that what you please.

    Basement reference? Everyone calls everyone around here asshats. Reverend Hellhound did it just a few hrs ago.

    On the contrary, polls are often very accurate, given that they follow a certain set of guidelines, which Gallup does.

    I guess we can't trust any polls then, you can no longer claim that the American people are on your side, we have no idea what the population thinks about the next election, Obama's approval rating might be at 90% for all we know. The polls are so unreliable that there's routinely over 17% error, even though the 95% confidence interval for this poll is +/- 4%, who cares, lets just call it split down the middle.

    I still want a proper, statistical definition of "white trash", and stats showing that 80% of this category support the Democrats.

    I had no idea people like you existed until I came to this thread, I thought people at least tried to put truth before blind protection of their dogma. How naive I was.

    Getting the best people for the job. Maybe there are some gays who are actually better suited to be in certain positions/jobs in the military than some straights. We should be trying to get the best people into the job and encouraging them to stay in those jobs, without discriminating against them because others are uncomfortable with who they date.

    It is in some undermanned jobs. And besides that, retention is generally more important than recruiting, so why shouldn't we be trying to keep the best people in the jobs that they are already trained to do?

    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Even if we recruit twice the soldiers we bleed from DADT, that aphorism holds.

    DADT also discourages gays from enlisting, and denies the military a lot of potential talent.

    Is that your role, to hire people? Maybe there are gays but probably since the vast majority in this country aren't gay, my bet is you can find someone equally or better qualified.

    So apparently that was your quote and you do believe DADT impacts recruiting? Apparently military leadership disagrees with you as do the recruiting results. Amazing that whenver there is a thread on homosexulality it brings out everyone here promoting that agenda. I prefer leaving this to the all volunteer military to make the decision and it does appear that DADT repeal is dead. Live with it.
