...if we went back to GWB’s policy of letting felons in.

Say again? When exactly did GWB allow felons in the military? Without checking, it seems it was the 80's when that was shut down. Except for the Marines (back then), they figured they could still make a contributing member of society out of a felon. I'm pretty sure now, even the Marines turn away felons.

It started up again under GWB so they could miss recruitment goals by less (it wasn't just the record-high bonuses and benefits promised).

Yes...it stopped <90 days after the new Administration started. Army, too.
