    It was for the person the ship was named after. The guy wore it to irritate the Obama supporters. It backfired on him now he is crying like a baby.

    I see you edited out "Obama" and replaced it with "Clinton" since that analogy wouldn't quite work. It still doesn't since the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush isn't an endorsement for Bush, but for the Navy. It's a ship, you see.

    It's still his name, you see. The guy created his own problem. Too bad for him. He should have worn a "Navy" shirt.

    First - it wasn't a political shirt. The U.S.S. George H. W. Bush is a United States commissioned warship, which Congress approved and funded, and Obama as the Commander and Chief, commands as part of his Navy. Why would there be a problem? You're counter example is apples and oranges btw.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He made it a political shirt by wearing it to the Obama event. He knew exactly what he was doing and got exactly the result he wanted. All you gullible people fell for it and gave him the attention he was seeking.

    By your own logic the following clothing items that are sold by the US Navy are off-limits to be worn at political events for the Teleprompter-in-Chief.

    USS Abraham Lincoln
    USS Dwight D. Eisenhower
    USS Theodore Roosevelt
    USS George Washington
    USS Harry S. Truman
    USS Ronald Reagan
    USS Carl Vinson (Congressman)
    USS John C. Stennis (Senator)
    USS Bonhomme Richard (Benjamin Franklin's pen name)
    USS Henry M. Jackson (Senator)
    USS Jimmy Carter

    What about people that have served on those ships? Are they allowed to wear a shirt and a cap that celebrates their service on board those ships?
