That's the word Rick Perry used to describe President Obama's support for Don't Ask, Don't Tell's repeal. Obama, he said, is "using the military as a political tool to advance his base's position" during a meeting with veterans at the U.S.S. Yorktown yesterday.
Perry's comments of course come after he attacked gay military men and women to win over social conservatives in Iowa.
So, considering that a majority of Americans supported DADT's repeal, who's really the tool here?
Watch Perry's remarks, AFTER THE JUMP...
