"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Rev...I believe it was with a purpose. I DO think that gen McChrystal HAD to know his comments were going into an article. I grant you...what he said about BO wasnt all that bad...
Could it have been a case of blinding egomaniacism?
I don't really know much about McChrystal's character, but could he have thought perhaps that he was so valuable that they wouldn't dare reproach him for his insolence?
Could he have thought the Obama administration so weak and pussified that they just wouldn't do anything, no matter how disrespectful he was?
I know that it's easy for one's reality to become skewed, when one is surrounded 24/7 by sycophants or even by "like-minded others".
And I feel the military in general doesn't have much respect for Obama or his administration.
Maybe talking smack about them is just sort of... normal, amongst military brass.
Maybe McChrystal lost sight of the fact that in the larger, non-military world, it's viewed as unacceptable for him to publicly and openly mock the presidential administration.
And I agree with you about all the rest. However, that is not what most people argue at first, that is not what the media is presenting at first, and its not even what you said at first. It always goes back to "The things he said about Barack Obama", of which there is nothing directly attributed to him in that story. The closest is third party heresay by unnamed sources, and yet the main meme this entire time has been to focus first and foremost on McChrystals comments.
