    So, in other words, it was an exercise in hyperbole. Good exercise! You have effectively strengthened your bloviation muscles.

    You would think lol. Wait till you've been here a while. There are a few individuals on here that love to tear people down, make it unenjoyable, and try to embarass people to the extreme. Some, like me, will poke at you in jest. Some, to remain unnamed, will act like you punched their mom in the face or something if you disagree with them or prove them wrong.

    Looks like the savages are once again winning out in an Islamic Republic. How many times are we going to see this story play out and think its going to change?

First, to be fair, he had a hard act to follow in W Bush. The guy was so pro-military its ridiculous. Sure, he sent us to war. However, he took very good care of us. Thats why you hardly ever heard a servicemember complain about deploying when he was POTUS. Bush understood that if he was going to deploy us that much, he had to take care of us. Now, regarding Obama, this is the view. We have fought for this country for 10 plus years. This guy comes in and says he's cutting a lot of us out, he's entertaining cutting benefits that many of us reenlisted for, some of us feel he is using us as a social petri dish (DADT/women in combat), he can't pronounce Corpsman properly, and he couples good comments about us with a campaign speech disguised as a SOTU. Not to mention all of the fiscal cuts being made that severely hamper our ability to train. He's being viewed in the same light as Clinton. We didn't like him very much either. Of course, this leads to a bigger issue that is for another thread: How to stop these expansions and contractions of military spending.
    You would certainly know how military folk feel better than I would, but I think those feelings are not based on facts. As a factual matter, Democrats consistently supported measures to benefit the troops more than Bush and the Republicans, from pay raises, to the GI bill, to VA funding, to shorter deployments, and all down the line. Of course Bush said all the right things and never passed up a photo op, but in terms of what he actually DID I think he treated the troops like dog ****.
