    My issue with it was those trying to act like it was proof matthews hates the military, trying to act like he LITERALLY viewed them as an "enemy camp", trying to imply this is example of why we need a civil war, etc.

    It was a ill worded common turn of phrase trying to describe Obama going to speak before a likely unreceptive crowd

    LOL...yeah, the 'enemy' were really incensed with President Obama being in their 'camp'...
    But when Obama concluded his remarks, cadets surged toward the stage to shake the president's hand. Cell phone cameras flashed as cadets jockeyed to get a photo of Obama. Several jumped over the backs of fellow cadets to try to reach his hand.

    I visited West Point once. Extremely impressive.

    Probably the most difficult all-around college syllabus in the world.

    Mental acuity. Physical excellence. Ethical discipline. Interior fortitude.

    Only the very best of the best survive this four-year gauntlet.

I imagine the cadets wonder whether the CIC has their best interests in mind.

    The cadets were probably ordered to put on a show for the POTUS, make him feel good. You know how the military is, support the man whether they like him or not.

    Reading to get caught up in this, my first thought today was it was odd seeing the right wing get all politically correct.
