Paul Ryan A Gracious Loser Over Repeal Of DADT: “We Should Not Reverse It”

“I talked to a lot of good friends of mine who are combat leaders in the theater, and they just didn’t think the timing of this was right to do this when our troops were in the middle of harm’s way in combat. Now that it’s done, we should not reverse it. I think that would be a step in the wrong direction because people have already disclosed themselves. So I think this issue is past us. It’s done. And I think we need to move on.”

Republican VP candidtate Paul Ryan speaking with WPTV’s Alex Sanz on the one year anniversary of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which he voted against in 2010.
