    I am sure that the wing nuts will label her as a drug using, multi marriage adulteress. Which at one time or another, she has been all. She will have just as much effect on this movement as she did her husband's presidential run. None.

    The GOP ticket in 2012: Cindy McCain for president and Sarah Palin as the woman behind the prescription pad. Can't go wrong there. :smile:

    Oh dear. This is one issue that John McCain won't be flipping on anytime soon considering his current position on DADT::frown1:

    washingtonpost.com


    Tuesday Feb.2, 2010: Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen testifying to senators after President Obama's announcement that he would seek a congressional repeal of the 15-year-old policy. Mullen called repealing the policy, which bans openly gay men and lesbians from serving, "the right thing to do" and said he was personally troubled by effectively forcing service members to "lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens."

    Gates told the Armed Services Committee, "I fully support the president's decision."



    In response, McCain declared himself "disappointed" in the testimony. "At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services, we should not be seeking to overturn the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy," he said bluntly...

    WOOPS!
    John McCain yesterday 2/2/10:
    "The reason why I supported the policy to start with is because General Colin Powell, who was then the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is the one that strongly recommended we adopt this policy in the Clinton administration. I have not heard General Powell or any of the other military leaders reverse their position,"

    Colin Powell Today 2/3/10 :
    “In the almost 17 years since the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ legislation was passed, attitudes and circumstances have changed. I fully support the new approach presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee this week by Secretary of Defense Gates and Admiral Mullen,"

    Republicans could learn a lot from Powell. Too bad some of ours can't get over his Obama endorsement in 2008.

    Going pro-sexual liberty is going to be important to the future of the Republican party, I think.

    Other than her allegedly being a homegirl to Tila Tequila, Meghan I don't know so much.

    Cindy is clearly a Stepford wife. I bet somebody sneaked in and changed the circuits in her head.

    But sadly the "Party of NO"/GOP once again displayed its opposition to gay rights today and sided with McCain to block progressive legislation that would have repealed DADT:

    Perhaps "going anti-sexual liberty" will cause GOP losses in November.:footinmouth::fingersx:

    Anyone who opposes the repeal of DADT cannot honestly say that they support the troops. They can only say that they support troops who personally share their own worldview.

    Doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

    Doubtful. Everyone already knows the GOP is anti-gay, this is nothing new.

    But people aren't one issue voters, even though an overwhelming majority agree its time to get rid of DADT.

    There is still general dissatisfaction with the government, which almost always means the majority party will lose seats.

    That's true, but in many instances (if we go by their ideologies & statements) the replacements are much worse than who are currently running things. The idea of some of the deadweight being replaced in government is always good, regardless of political affiliation. But at what cost?

    The senile old asswipe would sell his own mother's ass on the streets of Phoenix, Az. if that is what it would take to get reelected to the Senate. Thank god he is not president for more reasons than one.
