Captain Obvious: John McCain Filibuster Dishonest and Calculated
Let's get a couple of things clear here:
- Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) was enacted in a defense appropriations bill.
- John McCain said previously that if military leaders were for repeal, he would be too.
- Military leaders are now for appeal.
- Republicans used to be proponents of the "Dream" Act.
John McCain is flip-flopping more than a fish on a dock. So when you hear that the Democrats and Harry Reid were trying to "cram" these things "down our throats," it is dishonest, calculated and just flat-out wrong.
