On the issue of DADT, it really doesn't matter what the military or the non military wants, Obama never brought the issue up until earlier this year when it was a major campaign issue. Obama is just a continuation of the liberal failures.
    I'll agree with that. The Democratic Party makes it very hard to be a democrat sometimes.

    That I can agree with. But on this particular issue, the Dems were being reasonable.

    How have you been?

    The Congress was for once. I'm mostly just disappointed in Obama.

    Busy. Ah the holidays! It's telling though that every time I come back on I have to figure out who the major players are all over again. At least my favorites seems to stick around.

    What frustrates me is the Dems play as if it's a gentleman's game and the Reps play as if it's a bloodsport. It's like 20 oz. boxing gloves versus a .50 caliber turret. Even when they have the numbers they wind up losing. It's like the Dems are the Chicago Cubs.

    Why can't they take lessons? I mean, all these years of having the minority Repubs walking all over them should give the Dems plenty of pointers now that they're the minority, right? Ha, ha I jest of course! They're about to become even less relevant than they already were.

    Apparently the electorate disagreed with you on Nov. 2, so tell us exactly what you saw the last two years that the electorate didn't? It was an historic election due to the Obama agenda getting passed and being such a failure. Everything Obama wanted got passed, Republicans were totally shut out of the negotiations so not sure exactly where you were the past two years but obviously weren't paying attention to what was going on in D.C. What input did the Republicans have on the stimulus plan, healthcare, or any other Obama initiative?

    Yep, they are afraid to be called obstructionists when they are in the minority and the GOP wears obstructionist as a badge of honor.

    The majority doesn't make the rules for the military, Congress does and right now DADT is a law put into place in 1993 by Bill Clinton and a Democrat Congress.
