If the President and the Democratic run Congress don’t get the controversial Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy in place to be repealed by November, they could find themselves surrounded by a bunch of angry gay activists. That’s because if Republicans win back control of the House and/or Senate during this year’s midterm elections then that will be the end of trying to repeal the policy.
FRC Action is trying to mobilize the conservative faith community against the policy. Watch the video they just put up as part of their “Mission Compromised” campaign.
In addition, a new survey by Zogby International shows that Americans overwhelmingly want military leaders making the decisions on homosexuals serving openly in the military. The deal struck by the President and Congress would defer that decision to the ultimate discretion of President Obama.
See more on the survey here and below:
The scientific survey by Zogby International asked the following question of likely voters: "As it pertains to homosexuals openly serving in the military, do you believe this decision is best made by military leaders or Congress?"
An overwhelming majority of voters (59%) chose military leaders as the most capable decision makers compared to (23%) who chose Congress. Almost one in five, (18%) were unsure.
