The majority of service members see no problem. The service chiefs, with the notable exception of the Marine Corps, see little in the way of any problems. The Secretary of Defense says it can go, and should go.
Instead of pretending to worry about the deficit, which no one really cares about (least of all Republican politicians), maybe the lame duck can redeem itself a tad by repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell? The only thing standing in the way are a bunch of right-wing politicians who hate gays. Do it now before they get the power to bury the Pentagon study and convince America it says the opposite of what is actually in it.
Obviously, that would require a Democratic Party with spine.
