Obama: Commander-in-chief must support gay troops
Associated Press ^ | Oct. 1, 2011 | JULIE PACE

Posted on 10/01/2011 5:36:02 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says anyone running for president must support the entire U.S. military, including gay service members.

Obama's comments targeted Republican presidential candidates. He says they should not have allowed a crowd to boo a gay service member who asked a videotaped question in a debate last month.

How were they supposed “TO CONTROL” the audience in a debate?

That is a scary statement!!!

Does he really think that 1-2% of the population (many of whom won’t vote for him) are going to win an election for him? Talk about deluded. Or is it personal for him?

Obama: Commander-in-chief must support gay troops

Only if he doesn't consider the gay lifestyle a perversion. And were does he get the "must support" idea?

When we elect the next President and take over the Senate, I want them to reinstate “DADT”; however, I am pretty sure they won’t do it. This change of rules will have a very bad affect on our Armed Forces if it is not stopped before it becomes more set in stone. Pretty soon they will push for spousal benefits and then for transvestites to serve. Mark my words, the proponents of this change have a much larger agenda. This was a political move to change the character of the Armed Forces and to make it less traditional and conservative. Anyone with a brain should be able to understand that.

If he can control the government over the Legislative and Judicial branches, why can't the next president?
I'm tired of these politicians knowing what is best for the majority. Unfortunately, the closer we come to people getting government handouts, the sooner we are the majority.
And I don't think that day is too far away.

They already are agitating for so-called transgendered people to be allowed in the military. This is a low-down, sneaky strategy on Obama’s part. He intends to claim that any candidate that does not support the entire military is not qualified to be president. These people are beneath contempt.

If we get a decent next President, then I am in hopes that they WILL reverse the gays in the military.

Of course, the GOP for the past several decades or more has often failed to reverse changes installed by the Democrats, for fear of offending someone. But we have reached the point where THAT MUST CHANGE. We simply cannot go on like this. We’ve reached the end of the road.

I’m in good hopes that someone like Sarah Palin will reverse it, and will be capable of convincing people that doing so is NOT an attack on our military, which of course will be the Democrat propaganda line.

Barry and his little buddy, Hoffa Junior, should have not allowed their crowd to cheer when Junior told the crowd of union ‘RATS that it was time to “take out” the American TEA Party people.

The platform should be straightforward.

1) NOT just a restoration of DADT, but a prohibition of homosexuals in the military.

Under Section 8 of Article 1 of the constitution, congress has the authority “To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States.”

This means that no federal judge may force the military to admit homosexuals if congress chooses for them not to. As well, no federal judge can prevent congress from punishing anyone discovered to be a homosexual in the military.

2) Not just the elimination of parts of Obamacare, but the who stinking ball of dung. And even though Obamacare has gone a great length to destroy both Medicare and Medicaid, congress is under no obligation at all to restore these two economic black holes. Congress may very well decide to get out of the health care business entirely.

3) Other, enormous chunks of the government can go right out the window as well. Vast regions of State lands seized by the federal government can be returned to the individual States.

This from the same guy who allowed Jimmy Hoffa to say’”Take the SOB’s out” and said nothing when Maxine waters told Tea Partiers to go to hell.

But don’t say anything about Obama’s beloved fags.

Sarah Palin appeared on FOX News Sunday yesterday and was asked if the military gay ban should be repealed.

Said Palin: “I don’t think so right now. I’m surprised that the President spent time on that in his State of the Union speech when he spent only about 9 percent of his time in the State of the Union on national security issues. And I say that because there are other things to be worried about right now with the military. I think that kind of on the back burner, is sufficient for now. To put so much time, and effort, and politics into it, unnecessary.”

I don’t think any politician will reverse it. Maybe Allen West. Don’t know.

No. The CinC needs to lead the charge to run homos out of our military, and back into the closet.

No, I think the republicans are gonna back-stab us on it. Their so-called opposition to it last year was weak and unenthusiastic.

Alan West was not very forceful in opposing this change either. Sorry to say it, but we have no one who wants to take up this issue again.

The Commander in Chief should not have:

LIED TO US ALL ABOUT DADT

Faked that we supported it from within the miltary

Ordered his senior officers to say it was okay

Used false numbers to justify it

Used a lame duck Congress full of many people about to be out after an election who would never have to answer for it.

And more

Obama, you disgust me as a human being. I resent serving under you as CIC.

I agree 100% with what yefragetuwrabrumuy said. Not just back to DADT, but back to "Ask, and if the answer is wrong, out the door!". No homosexuals in the military whatsoever. Mentally ill sex perverts do not belong in the military and it is well known that allowing them in to various European militaries has damaged them.

Here’s my question about this whole issue: How many gays and lesbians are actually in the service? I had always assumed there were a lot more lesbians than gays, but I don’t know for sure. Are there any statistics?

Zero running around to Homosexuals telling them how much he loves them.

He probably just wants their money.

It’s not just money he wants. He is totally on board with the destructive homo agenda for its own sake, as all good leftists are; plus being a faggot himself, he identifies with it. Believe me, it’s not just the money.
