    Further, Gibbs was asked about this article and confirmed that McHugh shares Obama's viewpoint on the issue.

    •  You misrepresent Thinkprogress article, calchala (0+ / 0-)

      You boldly claim that McHugh is "against DADT" but the title and text of the article that you link to says something else. In fact the title of the article you yourself link is:  "Where Does The New Army Secretary Stand On Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?"

      And the text of the article also does NOT SUPPORT your conclusion.  The second paragraph says:

      Notably, neither Obama nor McHugh mentioned the military’s "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" (DADT) policy, an issue McHugh will surely have to address. His congressional record provides few clues as to his position. McHugh has not signed on to co-sponsor to a House bill that would repeal the ban on gays serving in the military, and last year earned only a 15 percent rating from the Human Rights Campaign.

      I've seen you do lots of low down things on Dailykos but you have reached a new low.  Claim that an article says something exactly opposite to what it really does.
