Mike Huckabee is on the fringe of far right fundamentalism, yet tries to pose as a representative of mainstream America.
Doing so he is either dishonest or delusional. He does not represent mainstream America.
From the article;
“[‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’] touches an extraordinarily small group of people,” Huckabee continued.
That depends on how you view the debate. There have been over 300 people dismissed from the military in the last year because of DADT. In relation to the number of people enrolled in the entire military, yes, that's a small number. But Huckabee doesn't win on this point.
The fact is, having a shortage of critical personnel in the military - medics, linguists, intelligence analysts - poses a serious problem for the effectiveness of the entire military, and in turn endangers everyone in America. Let's not forget that, Mr. Huckabee.
How much does it cost taxpayers to train those who have to replace perfectly capable personnel who have been needlessly turned out of the military because of DADT?
