    Dont really see how the US military could of avoided this, what the he said was pretty controversial ( even if you dont see it as a death threat) and the military can not be seen supporting a man like that especially in an election year.

    You'd think there'd be a little more gratitude to those that serve this country. Most of them are just kids.

    On this point we agree.

    To those who are arguing that Obama canceled the concert: Got any evidence?

    According to snopes.com the Nugent "hygiene/draft incident" is questionable. Yet, it is interesting that the more liberal among us are buying into it hook-line-and-sinker and spouting it as if it were verifiable fact.

    doesn't it strike you as a wee bit odd that the US Army is suddenly concerned with "violent rhetoric"?....they do know they are in the military , right?

    think about that for a second.. the US Army.... whose mission it is to wage war against our enemies... to kill them with malice .... is offended at "violent rhetoric"
    .... it makes me giggle

    Probably wouldn't be a big deal except for the fact that the violent rhetoric was aimed at Commander in Chief himself.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
