I’m getting tired of Republicans being the heroes on DADT

I hate it even more when they’re right.

From the Washington Post:

In a meeting with gay activists two weeks ago, Obama said he remains committed to ending the military ban this year, and Cooper said he urged the president and his aides to more actively seek out GOP lawmakers willing to vote for repeal.

“If they’re serious about repeal, they’ll start picking up the phone,” Cooper said. “They may be surprised to find how many votes might be out there.”

Remember, when McCain was filibustering DADT in September, the President didn’t pick up the phone to lobby a single Senator.  He did, however, find time to calls the WNBA champs that same day.
