Or we could give them nobody, unless and until they choose somebody who hasn’t been bought out by foreign interests.
Either we mean business in protecting our troops, or we don’t.
But I think it was revealed a long time ago that we don’t give a rip for our troops, when we let a decorated military surgeon go to jail and lose his livelihood because the military would not verify whether the combat orders he received were lawful. We now know they weren’t, because only Joe Biden can “act as President” according to the 20th Amendment, given that Obama has no legally-established birth facts (according to the HI state registrar). We don’t even know how old Obama is; there’s no legally-valid record which tells us that.
Lt. Col Lakin cared whether his combat orders were lawful. Nobody else within the military or the civilian hierarchy cared one bit whether our officers are being forced to violate their oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.
At this point I think the whole establishment has sold our military down the river. I suppose a person could say the military guys have already been screwed so many times, what’s one more time.... but I am disgusted with the whole thing. They deserve MUCH, MUCH better than this. And the only way it’s ever going to get better is if somebody stands up and says “Never again!”
I know that our fine troops will carry on and carry this nation on their backs as they always have in spite of the politicians in Washington.
Its simply not possible to give them nobody for four years. We are dealing with imcompentent self interested politicians who's only interest is reelection..the country can be dammed..
I trust that a grunt and combat veteran will do the right thing for our troops far more than anybody Obama will nominate to replace him.....
I've noticed Obama always puts his best (as far as Conservatives may view it in retrospect) option out first then he plays politics with the GOP to get something/someone far more favorable to the left the second or third time around.
Obama is the POTUS for four more years. He won we (referring to Conservatives) lost.
Where were the folks opposing Kerry, no where to be found.. 97-3 give me a break...
The opposition to Hagel is simply the GOPe telling Conservatives how they want them to feel. They have decided this the the insiders political game of the month to sound like they are the big guys on campus and they are taking Conservatives on a ride yet again..
Cut through the political crap and see the reality here..as far as Obama is concerned Hagel is dispensable. His choice is someone who would never stand a chance of being confirmed the first go round. Hagel is there to plow the way for the real nominee.
You want to put a a real obstacle in O’s way then stop opposing Hagel. He's the best Conservatives can expect..
