Great Man, right up there with ADM Stockdale as a prime example of 'what a MAN acts like under pressure'.

One of ADM Stockdales GREAT lines was, while 'debating Gore and Quayle when running with Perot

--'WHO AM I and - WHY AM I HERE?.

Of course the 'elitists' took it to mean he was Old, Senile and 'out of touch' BUT I, and my ilk, took it in the proper prospective.

Why am I standing here with these two idiots? Haven't I endured enough 'torture' in one lifetime?

Fair winds and following seas, RIP Admiral Denton.

I’m with you, xrmusn, I’m with you.

I never loathed liberalism quite so much as they day they ridiculed Stockdale.

One of my goals in life was to meet Stockdale and shake his hand...but never happened, rest his soul.

Now, Denton gone. The last threads of men of his generation are slowly being ripped away. They are fading. I have been so lucky to meet so many men of that generation.
