Another Demo Crash
Who fucked up DADT? 


<>Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked legislation that would have repealed the law banning gays from serving
openly in the military. The partisan vote was a defeat for Senate Democrats and gay rights advocates, who saw
the bill as their last chance before November's elections to overturn the law known as "don't ask, don't tell."

With the 56-43 vote, Democrats fell short of the 60 votes needed to advance the legislation.
It also would
have authorized $726 billion in defense spending including a pay raise for troops.

Well then why aren't we accusing them of not funding the troops?
Oh, that's right - because that wouldn't be nice.
What would it be like to be in a party that wanted to win?

Now, gay rights advocates say they worry they have lost a crucial opportunity to change the law.
If Democrats lose seats in the upcoming elections this fall, repealing the ban could prove even
more difficult — if not impossible — next year.

"The whole thing is a political train wreck," said Richard Socarides, a former White House adviser
on gay rights during the Clinton administration.  Socarides said Obama "badly miscalculated" the
Pentagon's support for repeal, while Democrats made only a "token effort" to advance the bill.

So, it's the same as with Teddy's seat?
The White House confessed to being "taken by surprise" when that happened.
Gee, can't anybody take the time to pay fucking attention?

Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor of Arkansas along with gutless Harry Reid
sided with Republicans to screw one of their most loyal voting blocks.

So, it's business as usual for our brain-dead Democrats.  Obama stayed asleep, the Backstabbers
did what they always do and the rest of the Dems "badly miscalculated" because they are
brain-dead Democrats
and the people end up fucked again<>.

Gosh, I'm glad Obama fought so hard to save Blanche Lincoln so she could continue screwing him

What's next, Barack?
A big fund-raiser for Joe Lieberman?
How about a Dick Cheney Appreciation Dinner?

How long can Obama continue to play the "I was taken off-guard again" card?

Why do Obama and Reid keep picking fights they can't win?
