Bachmann: ‘I would reinstate’ DADT
In one of the several highlights from Michelle Bachmann’s (R) appearances on the Sunday talk show circuit, the Minnesota Congresswoman’s vowed continued support for the now repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
On CNN’s “State of the Union”, host Candy Crowley asked Bachmann about whether she would bring back the controversial policy. The Ames Straw Poll winner was not hesitant to keep her same position on the issue.
“The ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ policy has worked very well,” Bachmann said. “It worked very well, and I would be in consultation with our commanders. But I think yes, I probably would.”

This is nothing new for Bachmann, who said in June at the first Republican debate for President that she would keep the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” And with her contentious interview with David Gregory on her past comments on LGVT issues, more questions about her beliefs towards gays and lesbians likely will continue.
