Posted on 07/26/2012 8:56:54 AM PDT by cblue55
Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe told The Daily Caller he believes President Barack Obama pressured the military into granting an unprecedented exception to rules that prohibit participation in political activities while in uniform.
The Defense Department authorized a waiver to allow uniformed service members to march in last weekends San Diego gay pride parade, overriding a Defense Department directives specific rules against uniformed service members participation in political events.

...this the same military who discharged a Marine for setting up a Facebook page that supports the Tea Party?
If I were al Queda, I’d be laughing too.
Now why don’t you go pay your taxes? Lazy Government workers need raises. :)
One problem: he’s pandering to a very obvious minority. Obama’s handlers aren’t stupid, and this isn’t being done by accident.
I believe Obama’s getting more brazen on purpose. He’s a clinical narcissist, and he’s not going to give up power. I think he’s going to do every radical thing he can before the election to piss of the electorate and then call martial law over something like a white man protecting himself and his family from a mob of rioting blacks.
Obama’s sitting on a powder keg playing with matches. He knows exactly what he’s doing.
Since when is a "gay pride" parade a political event? I always figured it was just a chance for the queers and lezbos to publicly display their outrageous behavior, disgust and turn off a bunch of spectators and beg for God's intervention.
It starts with Congress as well. Congress actually sets and creates the rules of the military, not the President. We have weak sacks of @hit in congress.
Obama “forced” or “pressured”? Any complaints?
Gross. I did not need to see that during lunch, and now I don’t want to finish.
Thanks, I just spit coffee out my nose
Love the comments following the article. A lot of people are ticked!
Makes me sick to my stomach what Obama has done to our military.
If anyone knows where to find that video I would appreciate it.
Obama don’t need no stinkin’ rules!
The Department of Defense isnt allowing this to go on, its the president, Inhofe said in an interview with TheDC. The secretary of defense answers to the president, and the military answers to the commander in chief. Clearly this is Barack Obama.
Not sure what you are trying to say.
Do you mean the Commander in Chief part?
Inhofe his hiding behind the CIC for cover and excuses. He and the rest of Congress could lay down the law, but they aren't.
Did’nt they go after some soldier that spoke in favor of Ron Paul in the Iowa Primary. Justice becomes politically subjective under tyranny.
Congress has already set rules preventing military uniforms in such assemblies.
As a chaplain, I am certain chaplains cannot be in uniform in a pro-life parade.
Remember General Boykin and the trouble he had over wearing his uniform while talking to churches and other similar groups.
The general rule says no military uniform in partisan assemblies.
There is hardly any doubt that a gay pride parade is a partisan and an “in your face” to those who don’t believe like them.
So, it really wasn’t at the discretion of the the Cdr in Chief.
In fact, members aren’t really supposed to be in uniform at NON-PARTISAN activities.
They went after soldiers who are critical of Obama and Clinton, but heap praise on soldiers who criticized Bush.
Welcome to LiberalLand. :)
Look, let’s just call it what it is.
His “sudden” support for gay marriage, allowing openly gay people to serve in the military, ordering that they be allowed to wear uniforms at a gay parade, etc....is all just one, big, honkin’, F**K YOU to Christian America.
I never noticed that before. I truly hate the MSM with all of my heart and soul.
First time since 1776.
blow up the photo of Obummer and roommate Sohale Siddiqi, in the fall of 1981 on
and they are holding hands on Sadiki`s knee [I count 8 fingers]-
and then compare Obummer`s statement about Sohale:
Sohale Siddiqi is identified as "Sadik" in Obama's memoir, Dreams From My Father, and is described as "a short, well-built Pakistani"
Sadiki is skinny with no muscles-
- evidently Obummer, in a homosexual slip, was referring to Sadiki`s Big Muscle, his well-built homo part?
Obummer liked Sadiki`s big muscle?
Otherwise, Obummer`s statement about Sadiki makes no sense whatsoever.
