    I'll try this one more time...

    They will amend it to a defense spending bill.

    Do you think Republicans are going to vote against a defense spending bill, especially once Obama has not only the Chief officer of the military and Joint Chiefs of Staff under his belt on this issue, but also a year long review which indicates that the policy can be repealed without any major problems? You lose Navy. Even if the Dems only had 51 seats in the Senate, they could easily pass this repeal. Your only hope is that Republicans completely retake Congress and they hold it indefinitely, because even if it takes another 17 years, the policy will end.

    But I will give you a pat on the head because I really do think you are trying. Eventually you will learn how politics work.

    Not in your wildest dreams.... they are dumb but not that dumb especially when the guys in the military tell them what a bad idea this is?

    That isn't my "wildest dreams" that is the well publicized and public plan that they have presented and which has been reported on by virtually every news source. They already have the Chief Officer of the military on their side and the Joint Chiefs of Staff will get behind whatever the review says because they will follow the line of serving their Commander and Chief. Amending the bill to a Defense Spending bill in 2011 will be snap, and as long as Democrats have at least a simple majority, they will be able to pass the repeal because the Republicans wouldn't dream of getting in their way.

    The joint chiefs will do what the men in the military want.......I can tell you it will never happen but if they decided it was ok you would never hear me complain about it again.......I told DD the same thing about gay marriage in California....

    Why don't you lefties respect the will of the people..If we lost we would respect yours, at least I would.........

    I'm going into the Army this June as a 2LT, I've never seen a single person who supported DADT and would resign their commission or leave the military if it was removed. Now that's just my experience.

    But they haven't. There will be hearings, that's for sure. We'll see who says its an unworkable idea.

    You might, but the rest of your side wouldn't. They'd keep fighting.

    But NP would counter that you're not going out to sea for 6 months, therefor your observations are irrelevant.

    Bull. We live in a Constitutional Republic. The will of the people is the Constitution. Until it is amended, we will fight for our rights. No simple majority in any state will ever change that.

    Be ready to eat our words Navy.
