Having spent the last several posts trashing Scott Brown’s pointless position on unemployment and tax cuts, we will now praise his sensible and courageous stand on repealing the odious Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.
Having reviewed the Pentagon report, having spoken to active and retired military service members, and having discussed the matter privately with Defense Secretary Gates and others, I accept the findings of the report and support repeal based on the Secretary’s recommendations that repeal will be implemented only when the battle effectiveness of the forces is assured and proper preparations have been completed.
This is a major step in the right direction. Good for Brown. Here’s hoping there are another couple of Republicans willing to follow his lead.
