Why did Republicans filibuster a repeal of DADT?

McCain's filibuster held in the Senate.

I don't see the thread anywhere.

57 of the 59 Dems voted for it, all Republicans against.

Why?

Isn't this a program that strengthens our military and engages homosexual equality?

I'm sorry, but while ROYC is posting masturbatory pictures of the GOP as an elephant head with a bodybuilder's torso, this questions deserves to be engaged.

Anybody defending keeping gays in the closet needs to step up and defend this.

Under a Republican House, DADT will not have any sort of Congressional approval. Period.

The military doesn't want it. End of story. I have no problems with DADT. We don't need our military politicised over sexual preferrences.

Maybe you should ask the 2 Democrats who voted against the bill as to why they crossed lines and I believe you will find your answer.

Democrats aren't the ones blocking this legislation.

Dems voted in favor 57 out of 59 for something YOU probably agree with. Republicans stand opposed unanimously.

Yep. Our military does not need to be in the business of sexual preferrence. Therefore, they won't ask you what yours is and you want tell. It's that simple.

Will you elaborate on your last sentence? I don't really understand what you mean by that. Are you saying that gays will be banned from the military if the Republicans win the House? I don't think that's what you mean, but it comes across that way to me.

Why couldn't the Dems get all 59 votes, and the Ind. who votes with them? This falls on the Democratic leadership.

When you can't get a moderate who supports DADT on board, you know the problem isn't on the side of those who chose to filibuster.

Here's why Susan Collins joined the filibuster:

Quote:
“It’s the right thing to do. I think it’s only fair" to repeal don't ask, don't tell, said Senator Collins in a floor speech Tuesday. “But I cannot vote to proceed to this bill under a situation that’s going to shut down the debate and preclude Republican amendments. That, too, is not fair.
If Harry Reid wanted to pass DADT, maybe he should bring it up as normal legislation and he should not only get the same democrat votes who supported it this time around, but also moderates like Susan Collins. But we both know that Harry Reid's primary interest here isn't to pass DADT.
