John McCain Flip Flops On DADT!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikJohn McCainLGBT


Although he was once against the repeal, Sen. John McCain believes that Don't Ask, Don't Tell will work - especially because he is helping implement the repeal!

McCain said:

"I think I have to do everything I can to make sure that the impact on the morale, retention, recruitment and battle effectiveness of the military is minimized as much as possible. It is a law and I have to do whatever I can to help the men and women who are serving, particularly in combat, cope with this new situation. I will do everything I can to make it work."

Oh boy! It may be okay now, but he was dragging his feet the entire way!

Tisk. Tisk.

    Ummm, it looks like he didn't flip flop. He is basically saying now that it has passed, he will do everything possible to help make the change go smooth. Basically he is excepting his loss, and won't be crying about it.

  2. 2

    nothing in his comment indicates that he has changed his mind. He is simply stating that it is the law and he wants to make sure he is involved in it's implementation….

    Man speak with forked tongue…don't trust him and check your back for knives.

    I'm gay and very happy about the repeal. As some other people have posted, McCain was against it but now that it's happening, he will assist to make sure everything runs smoothly. I believe he will do this.

  5. 5

    So, lemme get this straight -
    Although he didn't agree with the repeal, he's man enough to stand up and say he'll do what he can to assist in a smooth transition yet you still have a problem with him??

    He should've retired years ago. He's an old, old man with old man ideas that have even been rejected by dinosaurs. Time to go!

    I am a democrat & I don't think he's Flip flopping! He saying that he tries his best for militrary morale, etc, which is why he took the position he did (not that I agree with it). I think what the meaning of the statement mean is that he has no choice but to support the military as the transition to the change in LAW takes affect, & never says he fully agrees the law should be there.

    Some of the military men say it is unsafe for the enemy to know who is gay as many of the countries we are at war with will KILL a gay person just for being gay as it is legal to do so in that country. John as seen the hell of war as a prisoner of war and knows more that we do about this situation. He does not hate gays. He is concerned for the well being of the military forces. He has not flip flopped on this stand. He is saying it is a law now and he is abiding by the LAW and do all he can to help the military adjust to it. I am for gay rights but many other countries are not.

    The crazy old coot thinks he's still in the military? Does he not understand his own job as an elected Senator? He does not do anything that deals with the morale of the troops or military effectiveness. As a member of the Senate Armed Services committee, he is not responsible for the troops. He's not a general nor does he serve in the operations of the military in any way. The man is delusional with his own ideas of self importance.

    John McCain hasn't changed his stand on DADT.
    He is just following the law.
    He is still a blight on ALL gay women & men in the Armed Services!
    Shame on you Mr. McCain!

    He didn't flip flop. He has accepted what he cannot change and is making the best of the situation. I wouldn't expect you to understand, Perez. You're like a petulant child.

  14. 14

    He should be working to make sure it works. Too bad he couldn't have realized that it wasn't a good idea to begin with though, but at least he will now be shutting his mouth. Honestly he is still just mad because he lost the election, and I don't think he can get over it.

  15. 15

    This was confusingly written. "He believes DADT will work, especially because he is helping implement the repeal"? I think you mean he is now behind the REPEAL.

  16. 16

    The best help he can offer is to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP and let Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen and President Barack Obama do their jobs. The Senate has little to no role in the implementation of the policy repeal.

    He has flip flop. He said if there is a cry for the change he would support it and when the cry was there he said he will not back any form of DADT. Sounds like a flip flop too me. This guy called himself a maverick for change and then 6 months later he said he is not a maverick. This guy will use anything and anybody to push his agenda. F*ck McClain and F*ck Palin

    there's no bigger asshole on this side of the planet. He was a shitty pilot and is a horrendous elected official. He makes me ill.

    Good Ole Boy….what a joke…

  20. 20

    He didn't "flip-flop" he respects the rule of law, and as it is now a law, he will help in any way he can to make it "work" Misleading headline…

  21. @v@ says – reply to this


    First he supported it, then he didn't, and now he has to support any legislation that exists as a part of his job. I don't quite understand it, but he's on board.

  22. 22

    Well if you read between the lines looks like he is still "doubtful".
    Move aside old man.

    He didn't flip-flop, that skank has to do what he's told.

    Re: supersongbird – Same to you!
    Have you read anything that would explain McCain talking out of both sides of his mouth on this issue? Maybe I just missed it.
