FRC: Even After Voters Reject His Agenda, President Obama Still Doesn’t Get It

November 3, 2010

WASHINGTON, (MetroCatholic) — Family Research Council President Tony Perkins reacts to comments President Barack Obama made at a press conference today calling for revoking the current policy on homosexuals serving openly in the military, commonly referred to as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

“Last night millions of Americans went to the polls to express their strong disagreement with the change President Obama has brought to Washington . Out of control spending, government takeovers of health care and other private enterprise and an allegiance to a pro-abortion/anti-family coalition are all issues the American people said ‘Enough!’ to last night.

“When it comes to the homosexual agenda, the American people could not be clearer. The flipping of at least six state legislatures, the defeat of three justices in Iowa who imposed same-sex ‘marriage’ and the defeat of the House Member leading the charge to overturn the current military policy are all examples of how the American people have grown tired of the Democratic Party’s adherence to an anti-family coalition.

“I agree with the President that Congress should wait for the coming report from the military on changing the current policy. However, that does not mean Congress should rubber stamp any study. The study itself is likely to have problems, and the next natural step would be to have the new 112th Congress hold hearings on the issue.

“The arrogance of the President and his allies in Congress, many of whom will not return in the new Congress, to force such a drastic change on our military in the middle of fighting two wars is disrespectful of our troops, and should not be tolerated.”
