Time's Joe Klein: Obama Has Better Relationship With Military Than Bush Did
NewsBusters ^ | 5/29/11 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 05/29/2011 10:50:25 AM PDT by Nachum

Time magazine's Joe Klein this weekend claimed President Obama has a better relationship with the military than George W. Bush did when he was Commander-in-Chief. Such hypocritically was said on "The Chris Matthews Show" just moments before Klein noted that the military were "very much opposed" to attacking Libya (snip) JOE KLEIN, TIME MAGAZINE: The other thing is there’s still tension between [President Obama] and Petraeus about what exactly, how exactly to close out Afghanistan. I'd say the relationship is pretty good, very, better than it was with Bush

Is there any absurdity that this sycophant and lickspittle won't utter in order to please his master?

Klein jumped the shark ages ago, but to the profession of journalism, even in today's debased coinage, he remains a source of embarrassment.

"Obama Has Better Relationship With Military Than Bush Did NewsBusters"

See, having your nose in Obama's butt-crack can result in hypoxia-induced hallucinations.

I don’t think it is better... But I don’t think it’s worse.

The military does it’s job no matter who is President.

That “relationship” would look more like rape, with the military bent over taking Obama’s political agenda up the backside.

I wonder if Klein knows any military people up close and personal. I know a handful, and 100% of them think Obama IS a vacancy wherever he lights. They must hyave disliked Bush to a rate of 101%.

Not to parse phrasing, I think he meant to say that Obama’s relationship with the military is more gooder than Bush’s was.

Or maybe that Bush’s was very worser than Obama’s.

Put 50,000 military in a stadium. Put Bush in one end zone, obama in the other. Then announce, "Please come down and meet the President."

I don't have to tell you what would happen.

Even in the media, if you tell a lie often enough, you can even begin to believe it yourself. Beyond this, words simply fail me for an explanation.

I’m a veteran and live in a Navy town and I almost threw up when I read the title of this thread, but then I read down a bit and noticed that the article is talking about the relationship between Obama and the uniformed politicians (who are still referred to by the old term, General). Makes sense now.

“I don’t think it is better... But I don’t think it’s worse.
The military does it’s job no matter who is President.”

That may be changing in the not-too-distant future.

See this article:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/may/28/navy-too-politically-correct-for-old-salts/

Serious question:
What is the _new_ PC-military’s “job” actually going to be?

Just askin’....

Klein has got to be the stupidest “journalist” out there today. Just one more apple-polishing, brown-nosing little man trying to hang onto the coat tails of the “elite”. I'm embarrassed for him.

I agree that the Military does it's job inspite of who's CIC. But, I don't believe that the Military is personally supportive of one with a history of Anti-Military actions and statements.

Unlike Liberal Drones, the Military is comprised of mostly very smart people who see things from a very realistic perspective. They know who has/had their backs.

When Beltway pukes like Klein talk about "the military," they don't mean what we would mean. They mean a couple of disgruntled perfumed princes at the Pentagon who never got their bird or their star despite sucking up to everyone in sight.

We would most likely mean fighting men. Media whores like Klein wouldn't know what those are or where to find them if they wanted to.

W was loved by military. Zero is despised by 80% of the troops, worse than when Slick Willie was in office. It was just contempt then, but it is loathing now. Except for the likes of “Weasely Clark”.

Maybe he meant among blacks. Blacks voted for BO because of his skin color, maybe they prefer him as CIC, because of his skin color.”Content of character” has long since gone out the door.
