Giuliani Tells GOP to Repeal DADT

Former New York City mayor and 2008 Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani called on his party to "ease up a little bit" on social issues, in particular, the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which he said could likely be appealed now.

The Wonk Room reports that the moderate Republican appeared Wednesday on CNN, where he told Wolf Blitzer that appeal could probably be accomplished now, compared to the height of the Iraq war, when he opposed lifting the ban.

"My feeling about 'don't ask, don't tell' was, in the middle of the height of the Iraq war, not a good time to do it," said Giuliani, according to the Wonk Room. "We're not in the middle of the height of the Iraq war. Afghanistan is a different kind of thing. You could probably accomplish it now. It's eventually going to happen and it seems to me that it gets my party out of this antigay feeling, that we're being unfair to people who are gay."
