  •  No, you don't know what cognitive dissonance is (0+ / 0-)

    Because your comments reek of it.

    Do you have a comment generator into which you insert buzz words like "feminist" or "homophobe" which then gives you back hyperbolic statements which are totally void of substance but long on emotional appeal?

    •  This looks like English. (11+ / 0-)

      But doesn't make sense.

      Weird.

      There is a person who has never ever voted for a pro-gay policy in his life and who has a 0% rating with gay groups and a history of saying that someone who is gay cannot represent American values.

      That's all I'm saying.

      I don't know what you're on about at all. Like honestly.

        That must be it. Or perhaps I'm looking at the bigger picture, like US policy vis-a-vis Iran and changing the strategic focus of the military from large scale conflict to smaller but just as lethal threats.

        The SecDef doesn't make policy, he carries it out and he takes a pledge to do so. I'm quite confident Obama wouldn't have nominated him had he had the slightest doubt about Hagel's ability to implement DADT repeal. As for marriage equality - the battle is in the Supreme Court and Congress, not at DOD.

        People can change. And there are bigger issues here that you're losing sight of. Be careful who you lay down with in this battle - you just may end up with fleas.
