McCain: Obama Pandering to Gay/Lesbian Vote

Wednesday, 22 Sep 2010 09:36 AM

Sen. John McCain blasted Democrats for forcing a vote on the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The Arizona senator wants to wait until the military completes a review of the repeal's potential impact on troops, according to a report at theatlantic.com.

"Whether you agree or disagree with this policy," McCain added, "the Senate should not be forced to make this decision now, before we've heard from our troops."

"Why would the majority leader and chairman want to bring up 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' then the DREAM Act, then secret holds, and then bring up the rest of the bill after the elections?" McCain asked. "One can draw the conclusion that this is all about elections, not the well being ... and battle effectiveness of the men and women laying it on the line today."
