The print and online guardians in the establishment press may have to open a new case of ellipses and order extra pairs of paraphrases to deal with this one. Video and audio editing will be easier, if not ethical (NBC has taught us that during the past several weeks).

Declaring what everyone with a functioning brain has known all along -- namely that President Barack Obama supports same-sex marriage but hasn't had the political integrity to admit as much until now -- the commander-in-chief of the nation's armed forces told ABC News that "when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there FIGHTING ON MY BEHALF and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married." Yes, he said that our military is out there fighting on his behalf

The Wehrmacht Oath of Loyalty to Adolf Hitler, 2 August 1934: “I swear by God this sacred oath that to the Leader of the German empire and people, Adolf Hitler, supreme commander of the armed forces, I shall render unconditional obedience and that as a brave soldier I shall at all times be prepared to give my life for this oath.”

Service oath for public servants: I swear: I will be faithful and obedient to the leader of the German empire and people, Adolf Hitler, to observe the law, and to conscientiously fulfil my official duties, so help me God!

“Can’t wait to see how they spin this,,,if the media even mentions it, that is. Which they probably won’t.”

That’s buried with today’s dismal jobs report underneath:

Is there video/audio of that captured somewhere?

We need to run that as an ad.

To Dear Leader:

I wore my country’s uniform and body armor for twenty-six years.

My oath was to the Constitution.

My oath was never to YOU.

If a round was coming at you, Dear Leader, I would duck.

Mark Levin was all over this yesterday. It made me sick to my stomach.

Again.

This is why Clinton said: “If the team (that got OBL) were captured or killed, it would have been horrible for him.” ‘Him’ being Obama. Nevermind about the Seals.

The left wing spin is in full throttle. They are saying what he meant was that gay service members are/were fighting for him to make the decision he made,,,not fighting wars on his behalf. I guess the “nuance” went right over our heads. sarc/
