Scott Brown Statement On Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) today issued the following statement on the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy:

“I have been in the military for 31 years and counting, and have served as a subordinate and as an officer. As a legislator, I have spent a significant amount of time on military issues. During my time of service, I have visited our injured troops at Walter Reed and have attended funerals of our fallen heroes. When a soldier answers the call to serve, and risks life or limb, it has never mattered to me whether they are gay or straight. My only concern has been whether their service and sacrifice is with pride and honor.

“I pledged to keep an open mind about the present policy on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Having reviewed the Pentagon report, having spoken to active and retired military service members, and having discussed the matter privately with Defense Secretary Gates and others, I accept the findings of the report and support repeal based on the Secretary’s recommendations that repeal will be implemented only when the battle effectiveness of the forces is assured and proper preparations have been completed.”

    We were thrilled when Scott Brown won! that was before he started voting with the Dems. We now consider him and the wacko woman from back East Snowe and Collins RINOS. We are disappointed that Scott not only took the place of Kennedy but became him as though old Ted is now inhabiting his mind! Why not just cross over to the Dem party and enjoy yourself.???

    You know, Brown may be all looks and no brains….it could be, he doesn’t seem to think that he is suppose to uphold his own party…we shall see.

      But Nancy, you forget that the Republican Party is not and should not be a monolith. It’s ok to have moderates and conservatives in the party. Don’t forget that it was because of Scott Brown that Obamacare was stopped for eight months. Had Martha Coakley won, it would have passed sooner, along with many other liberal bills.
