    Yeah because the commissioning of a carrier for Bush is Bull****. That was the point, sorry you couldn't see it.
    Oh, a crazed Bush hater post... our bad, we missed the frothing at the mouth and general over all rage. This is for Bush's Dad, not W. Maybe that will ease your pain.

    This had nothing to do with partisanship until you began this off topic rant.

    Huh?

    Having the same home port as many other ships isn't what you think it is. For the vast majority of the time, US naval assets are not in dock. Furthermore, many US ships go to a relatively few docks for major overhauls. We frankly don't have many ports that can handle carrier refits. So this problem exists whether or not a ship is home ported in a busy port.

    So while the Navy is correct about security in some regards, their proposal would increase costs. Instead of providing security for a large number of centralized berths, we'd have to spend far more to secure a large number of berths spread out. Given how little time ships spend in port anyways relative to their operational lifetimes, it doesn't seem cost effective.

    Mayport Florida can't even do an overhaul and that is primarily where a carrier sits in dock for a long period of time.

    Oh, it won't Trust me...we've seen this pathology before and it is almost incurable at this stage.

    The commissioning was partisan. Only those with their heads stuck where the sun don't shine know that one.

    Then you should have no problem providing some kind of documentation or proof of this...

    Conservatives supported Bush's war, but not Kosovo, and Bush gets a carrier commissioned for it.

    Why don't you conservatives stand in line to suck the knob of Bush while you're at it.
    Where do you get off coming to a forum where most of the people are Americans and who love our country and our presidents, even when they don't do what we want, and insulting us and our leaders.

    You just go and sod off you hoser.

    Reported.

    Love the presidents? Sorry but I've seen just as much contempt from conservative assholes regarding Clinton, so spare me you statement.

    Many conservatives on this forum have done nothing but shown disrespect for Clinton without your intervention of asking them otherwise so spare me. Where is your statements asking conservatives to show their respect for the previous president Clinton?

    We'll see about how much love you have for Obama. Your statements will be watched.

    Who actually was a decent president who cleaned up after Reagan's numerous messes.

    Why is Ford getting a carrier after H.W.?

    Isn't Presidential naming of carriers suppose to be sequential?
