...because everything Democrats do is historic, even if it is reversing a law put into place by the last Democratic president:
Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Obama, was at the Capitol this afternoon to watch the final vote on ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’....She called the policy’s repeal a “historic moment” — an act that makes the United States a “more perfect union.”
Because everything the Democrats do makes this nation a better place and makes Americans better people, even if it destroys our economy, wrecks our health care, and causes additional strife overseas.
The media chimes in:
In a historic vote for gay rights, the Senate agreed on Saturday to do away with the military's 17-year ban on openly gay troops and sent President Barack Obama legislation to overturn the Clinton-era policy known as "don't ask, don't tell."
Sigh..."historic", again. Reminds me of the overeager dog owner who repeatedly tells their pet what a good boy they are, such a good boy!!, for pooping outside...
Ironically, the AP gives us more truth than they likely wanted to:
...More than 13,500 service members have been dismissed under the 1993 law...
Which was heralded as a wonderful compromise and an example of Bill Clinton's political genius by the same media when he came up with his "splitting the baby in two" policies towards gays in the military.
Liberals always have good intentions, they tell us, so we should cut them some slack when the results of their work turns out (uniformly) bad. Hmmm...maybe we should ask the 13,000+ homosexuals who lost their careers under Clinton's polices - strictly due to their sexual preference - how good they feel right now...
