Mike Huckabee: Reinstate DADT
Prospective 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee tells the American Family Association that he would work to reinstate DADT if elected.
"I would -- because that's really what the military wants," says Huckabee. "There's been some talk that the military is fine with having same-sex orientation people. But if you really surveyed the combat troops, that is not at all the case." According to Huckabee, currently a political analyst for Fox News, politicians should back out of the picture. "...I don't think that these are decisions that politicians should make. These are decisions that soldiers should make," he says emphatically. "And when the soldiers in the foxholes make the decisions, they choose something different -- and we should listen to them."A similar promise was made last month by declared GOP 2012 presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty.
