That moment and the dog poop joke were the best parts.
“Any type of sexual activity has no place in the military”
This can’t be repeated enough. Gays out. Women waaaaay in the back / homefront. Soldiers in.
Keep that stuff at home, off base, or on shore-leave.
worth noting that gay men have bravely served the United States in every war since the Revolutionary War. However, they kept their personal life private and that is how it should be when serving your country in the serious role of serving in the military.
Who cares about a few scattered boos. Santorum hit that question out of the park. I believe few up on stage would have taken it head on like Rick without hedging and being overly PC. Santorum is a solid guy.
Frankly the audiences at these debates may just lose this election for the Repubs.
The soldier’s question illuminates a point: the UCMJ section banning homosexual acts is (as far as I know) unchanged. President Obama’s ‘ending’ the ban could be reversed by another Executive Order, by the next President, or even by himself, if it should prove to be necessary for good order and discipline. So, for a serviceman or woman of homophilliac tendancies, knowing what the candidates’ position would be on the question is essential. If one is such a person, and if one has made the mistake of going public with one’s preferences, and if a candidate who would reinstitute the ban looks likely to win the next election , it would be a good time to consider a change in careers.
The knife is firmly embedded in the back of our military.

Knowing the candidates’ policy on rendition of dual citizenship terrorists in the military is also important to the terrorists in question. Shall we refrain from booing them also?
How do we know that some of the booers at these debates weren’’t agents-provocateurs planted by the other side? (Inquiring minds want to know).
The Germans heckled 0bidi0t on his 08 Euro tour. He cancelled France the next day.
There is a difference between booing a question asked, which was a “gotcha” question and the person asking it for his personal beliefs, actions, etc.
This author is doing what all liberals do in pulling the race card on anyone who asks a similar question of OZERO or criticizes him in any way.
I agree in principle, but in both these cases (the previous debate) I saw it as more booing the policy, not the individuals involved.
That said, don’t go there!
Faggot soldiers who want to push the radical homosexual agenda on the US military make me throw up in my mouth a little.
I think the audience was booing the stupidity of the topic and/or question, when there are much more important things to think about.
I think it was Paul or Santorum who was answering, and it was dead-on
SEX HAS NO PLACE IN THE MILITARY
You can be whatever you want, just KEEP IT TO YOURSELF
Don’t ask, don’t tell was a perfectly fine policy. If someone talked about sex in my workplace they would be fired (hetero or gay) for discussing innapropriate topics.
And the bosses here made it clear- you’re here to do your job- not to talk about your sex life. Period.
Why wasn’t “Stephen” identified by his rank?
I didn’t hear the booing, because as soon as the video was over I wondered aloud to my wife why the service member’s rank was not given.
In every case I can think of where a service member is on the news media, they are identified by their rank, even after their ETS.
This stood out to me.
Why don’t these “journalists” ask the people that supposedly Boo why they did... why are they blaming the GOP Audience? Oh, never mind..
Would that be ari the “poofter” fleischer?
