Christine O`Donnell on Homeland Security

Republican Challenger

 


Let military decide "don't ask, don't tell" on its own

Q: What are you planning on the issue of "don't ask, don't tell" and its possible repeal?

COONS: I would move swiftly as a senator to repeal don't ask, don't tell. I think it is discrimination, plain and simple. In my view, we should be making progress in this country towards recognizing the full range of human experience, and repealing don't ask, don't tell to me is an important next step in the civil rights movement.

O'DONNELL: The military already regulates personal behavior in that it does not allow affairs to go on within your chain of command. It doesn't allow, if you're married, to have an adulterous affair within the military. So the military already regulates personal behavior because it feels that it is in the best interests of our military readiness. I don't think that Congress should be forcing a social agenda onto our military. I think we should leave that to the military to decide.

Don't give terrorists Miranda-ized rights

Q: What opinions of late that have come from our high court do you most object to?

O'DONNELL: Oh, gosh. Give me a specific one, I'm sorry.

Q: Actually, I can't, because I need you to tell me which ones you object to.

O'DONNELL: I'm very sorry. Right off the top of my head, I know that there are a lot, but I'll put it up on my Web site, I promise you.

Q: Well, we know you disagree with Roe versus Wade.

O'DONNELL: Yes, but [the question was] a recent one.

Q: Well, that's relatively recent. But since then?

O'DONNELL: Oh, there are several, when it comes to pornography, and court decisions to give terrorists Miranda-ized rights. This California decision to overturn "Don't Ask/Don't Tell," I believe that there are a lot of federal judges wh are legislating from the bench.

Q: That wasn't the Supreme Court, it's a lower court.

O'DONNELL: That was a federal judge.

COONS: I think the Citizens United case takes a sort of logical extension in the law, but takes it to a ridiculous extreme.

Don't grant terrorists precious Constitutional rights

Side By Side Comparison of Christine O'Donnell & Mike Castle on Security:

Voted with liberals in Congress to handicap our intelligence and military agencies.

Believes terrorism is an act of war requiring the full force of our intelligence and military resources rather than granting terrorists precious Constitutional rights and outsourcing our foreign policy to the U.N.
