On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh accused anyone who celebrated the repeal of DADT of hating the military. Limbaugh asked, "By the way, isn't it revealing my friends, the same people who have only shown hatred and contempt for the US military are the ones celebrating Don't Ask, Don't Tell as a great historic accomplishment?"
John McCain is a war hero, and advocates permanent wars regardless the cost in lives and drain on the economy. He also knows that allowing gays to serve in the military is wrong, regardless that a majority of Americans, the Pentagon, and service members support repealing DADT. McCain also doesn’t want an end to the war in Afghanistan because he has gross memory loss regarding the Iraq war.
At CPAC today Rick Santorum took a question from military spouse about the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, and turned it into suggestion that military has been indoctrinated, "I am not too sure that we haven't so indoctrinated the officer corps in the this country that they can actually see straight to make the right decision."
