    @ The Wonk Room suggests that some GOP leaders are “hinting that they will try to run-out the clock or pressure Democrats to drop the measure in return for Republican cooperation on the New START treaty.”

    Nice. So much for “…government for the people”

    I wonder how any of this is going to happen given the letter that all 42 Repugnants have now signed stating they won’t allow anything to transpire until the tax issue is resolved.. why no mention of the letter?

    Maybe we should hope that the Dems would place an amendment repealing DADT to the tax bill that the Republicans want so bad. Bet the Dems won’t even consider this because it would most likely work and the real issue is the Dems don’t give a shit about us or our rights.

    “Bet the Dems won’t even consider this because it would most likely work and the real issue is the Dems don’t give a shit about us or our rights.”

    How sincerely the Democrats care about us is certainly open to debate (a number of Dem’s have been continually outspoken in favor of DADT repeal–there’s no reason to believe they’ve been disingenuous), but at this point repealing DADT would be a definite political boost for them, and not passing it would be politically disastrous. On politics alone it’s in their–and Obama’s–best interest to get this done and done quickly.

    Lieberman should be ashamed of himself.

    The “fair amendment process” will include all sorts of awful things, most of them designed to scuttle DADT and to push other conservative issues like a ban on abortion in the military.
