I’m not terribly surprised. These kind of public outbursts have been happening for two years now – well, for a few decades actually. Not to mention, how many times do we have to hear Gates and his stooge Morrell subtly undercut the repeal effort before someone tells both of them to take a hike? Of course, it’s all moot now – Gates won, it’s over, the legislation is going nowhere for years to come. Congratulations to HRC, CAP and the White House – the big three who concocted this winning plan.
