Collins Hails Repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" (Obama heaps praise on RINO Collins)
Maine Public Broadcasting ^ | 2010-12-23

Posted on 12/26/2010 9:40:22 AM PST by rabscuttle385

The Maine senator collected kudos from President Obama for her role in moving the controversial legislation forward.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins was the only Republican on the stage for yesterday's signing of the bill repealing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on gays in the military, and one of only two Republicans at the ceremony.

Collins, who played a major role in moving the legislation forward, collected kudos from President Obama. "I want to thank Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins," he said, to cheers from the attendees.

Collins says there was no reason for the U.S. military to continue banning gays. "Great Britain, Australia, the Israelis--some 28 countries allow openly gay and lesbian men and women to serve."

Collins says it will take some time to implement the change, but she says it is needed.

Apparently, it has become the goal of our elected officials to make the United States just like Great Britain, Australia and Isreal, etc.

What a bunch of undistinguished empty suits.

Why is it needed? Were we lagging the other Superhomo Powers?

And he is up first in 2012. Right?

Who was the "other Republican" at the ceremony but not on stage?

Sen. Arlen Brown (RINO, MA)?

Hell, we may need some “human shields” in coming wars. I suggest using fags. Let the enemy get spattered with AIDS infected blood when they blast ‘em. Other than that,I see no real use in fags in fags in the military. Are they going to teach hand to hand bitch slapping in the marines now? Sick crap...

Buzzed through the channels and found a House episode to watch on the Bravo channel. Holy mackerel, almost all the commercials were for GLTB shows.

This is what the military is going to sink into, disgusting!

Agreed. IMHO is far worse to elect a RINO to the Senate than just go straight up with a RAT. At least we know RATS will most always vote the way the party and the Kenyan tells them to vote. With a RINO you just NEVER EVER know when they are ready to stab the electorate in the back and go in for a little of that old fashioned BIPARTAINSHIP.

Interesting tidbit from her bio -

“Collins has never been married and has no children.”

The gaydar unit indicates she’s a female Lindsay Graham.

Ms Collins, Real Americans consider you a traitor for this insult you have placed on the US Military.
You have helped the enemies of America. Hopefully the true Americans of your State will see you to unemployment very soon...

I wish I could find the quote from 0bama last fall.

He was at a campaign fund raiser and basically told the democrats to not worry about losing seats...

...that all that was needed was for a few republicans to cross the aisle.

Collins and Snow have continued to be elected because they have been able to bring the bacon home to Maine. This was possible while their vote was needed by both sides. With the House now firmly in Republican control and with increased Republican numbers in the Senate, their votes are no longer needed by either the Republicans or the Democrats. No more special deals in exchange for their votes. All Maine pork should be cut off and they should be left to wither on the vine.

Collins must be run out of office on a rail--even if it means replacing her with a Democrat.

In addition to Collins were 7 other empty suit RINOs who aided and abetted the homosexualization of the Armed Forces. None of them has come up with a substantive argument to open the military to sodomy, other than “it’s fair” and “almost every other country does it.”

Last I checked, the idea was to prevail in conflicts, not to emulate the Netherlands.
