Inhofe, Coburn Vote "No" on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repeal (Dec 20, 2010)

The reaction to the U.S. Senate's repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" is coming strong and swift.

Advocates for abolition are declaring Saturday's vote a civil rights milestone. Opponents predict the measure will divide and weaken the mightiest military on the planet.

Oklahoma Senior U-S Senator Jim Inhofe, who also serves as a senior member on the Senate Armed Services Committee, says the repeal is an effort to “appease the far left.”

Inhofe also says “don’t ask, don’t tell” has served as an effective policy for the last 17 years.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma says the repeal “puts political correctness ahead of national security.”

Both Coburn and Inhofe voted “no” on the repeal which President Barack Obama is expected to quickly sign.
