THe ROcky Horror Pictures show - sweet transvestite Obama, must continue.

As Scars would say in Lion King: “Oh {bama} it’s to die for”

Yep... that defines the son of perdition, the obom-o-nation.

That is a good question.
I suspect he is getting into the fray because he is a tool of zero, and a willing one at that.
They love themselves first; God and country come later, if at all.
I am so so sick of these sycophants with their sinecures.
I feel like puking.

excussssssssssssssmeeeeeeeeeeeee!

they served their country. they might have to keep their mouths shut while serving, (which i do not think is totally a good idea, like, you shouldn’t be required to obey and unlawful order, see the nuremburg sp? trials).

No stupid general ought to get himself involved in the politics of citizens, which he is talking about, in other words, he is getting into the fray, and taking sides.

He should keep his mouth shut

What a hypocrite!

Blessings, bobo

Funny, I always assumed that after I had left the military, I had full free speech to say whatever I like, whenever I like.

Seems like the Obama admin has just flipped the whole world upside down, we’re now living in Crazytown.

Dear General Martin Dempsey...

When you hang up your uniform for the last time you will have to live with the fact that you are no better than the homeless panhandler on the street scamming for a few bucks.

Sir, you are nothing more than a political whore just like your mentor, Wesley Clark.

It's not useful to me.

General, speaking as an ex-officer, and with all due respect, sir, sod off. I don't give a rat's butt what is or isn't useful to you personally. Do your duty, shut your mouth, and when you resign your commission or retire, talk to me or to anyone else you like. I get to do the same. There was no breach of OPSEC here, no release of classified information, unlike the behavior of the Commander in Chief and the people he has empowered to speak for him. You are way out of line, General.

When I was on active duty and when I retired from the USAF in 1985, I did not give up my rights embodied in the Bill of Rights. General Dempsey is a fool of the same stripe as General Robert Huyser who told me in 1976 that I should not have been concerned that I had not received my absentee ballot for the 1976 Presidential Election. His comment was, “Major, I do not believe that any officer or enlisted man should expect to vote for his commander in chief.” I was not surprised when I found that Huyser was one of the last USAF general officers who had only a high school diploma.

Some of these names have been mentioned, but here is a fairly complete list of ex-officers (and one ex-private who ranked as the worst occupant of our White House until these past four terrible years) who failed to stay “above the political fray”.

Captain (Army Reserve) Ronald Reagan,
Lieutenant Jimmy Carter,
Lieutenant Commander Gerald Ford,
Commander Richard Nixon,
Commander Lyndon Johnson,
Lieutenant John F. Kennedy,
General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower,
Colonel Harry S Truman,
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt,
Major William McKinley,
Brigadier General Benjamin Harrison,
Brigadier General Chester A. Arthur,
Major General James Garfield,
Major General Rutherford B. Hayes,
General of the Army Ulysses S. Grant,
Brigadier General Andrew Johnson,
Captain Abraham Lincoln,
Private James Buchanan,
Brigadier General Franklin Pierce,
Major Millard Fillmore,
Major General Zachary Taylor,
Colonel James K. Polk,
Captain John Tyler,
Major General William Henry Harrison,
General Andrew Jackson,
Colonel James Madison,

General Dempsey must be a little rattled. The Taliban put a few holes in his C-17 the other day. Maybe he’ll regain his composure in a few days.

The day after Gen Allen in Afghanistan commands all NATO military to lock and load at all times, Demsey flies in to discuss the situation. GRRRRRRR. I want to know if the policy still stands so our guys and ladies can defend themselves at all times.

As a soldier, you have a duty to stay above the political fray. So sit down and STFU!

Ummm... I’d like to partially retract my flip remark. There were a couple of soldiers/airman wounded on that General Dempsey’s flight. As much as I want to take a shot at this stupid remark by the General it’s no excuse spouting one of my own.

Apologies.

Oblabla has lowered the bar for all positions. It is the way he gets obsequious, brown nosing, boot licking, lickspittle general officers like Dempsey. (I know it is redundant but the very image of it conjures the lowest demeaning position I can say here).

Military is supposed to be above politics. Civilians, even retired general officer civilians, are off limits for comment or ridicule.

Now these men are serving their country OUT of the military, and they are right.

Well, according to DHS profiling, these same decorated veterans of the clandestine war on terror as now in the "risk group" for domestic terrorism. This is becoming more and more like Weimar Germany and early developing National Socialism. Or perhaps the last few years of the Reich during WWII when the Abwehr and Prussian military serving leadership were put on trial, imprisoned and executed for daring to counter (in the absence then of an electoral process of course) the Great Dictator. Quite eerie.

The opsec people are saying "stop the leaks" and more precisely asking... why are you leaking these details?

Wading into a potential minefield during a hotly contested White House race, Dempsey voiced his disapproval of a group of retired military members and CIA officers who have accused Obama of spilling sensitive national security details to help secure his re-election.

Sounds to me like Dempsey is politicking by telling RETIRED officers not to express their opinion of the Kenyan Communist!

The general, a soldier, says soldiers should stay out of politics. First of all, didn’t he just get into politics with his statement? Second, soldiers have nothing to do with those ads. They are now civilians.

Idiots like this in charge so just what kind of trouble this nation is in.

This old goat must be afraid of losing his precious pension, the most prized possession of the Pentagon crowd.

These military men are patriots who took an oath to protect America and her Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. They are doing their duty in spite of bureaucrats like Dempsey. Knowing the Chicago thugs in power, they will be facing retribution for daring to stand up to The First Dictator.
