    I think you're making the same mistake Obama made since day one of his presidency: seeing a mandate, where one doesn't exist.

    I agree wit this post, but the one I had commented on certainly implied that 'bigots' were 'less qualified' to serve.

    So you cannot answer the question, not surprising. You even started a thread on the Nov. 2 election so did you forget the results already? Had the Republicans stopped the Obama agenda the results would have been better thus the election results better for Democrats. DADT wasn't a big issue on Nov. 2 but the unemployment results and debt were.

    Nope, just an opinion. Is there a rule against expressing an opinion on this forum, now?

    What they do on their own time is their business. Isn't that the argument used to support a repeal of DADT?

    That's because you frame it as a fact without any evidence. You do understand that in formal debate you are supposed to support your claims, right?
