    I have never heard him speak like this about Mr. Obama and probably never will again.



    You seem to forget the great work done by GWB in Africa in stopping the AIDs epidemic--all give him kudos for this great accomplishment .
    I don't believe GWB committed troops in Africa...........Our guys signed up to fight not this.

    No. Our guys signed up to serve and protect this country, and to defend it. They didn't sign up because they wanted to kill people. They signed up because they wanted to protect people.

    Containing ebola serves our national interest. The sooner this epidemic is stopped, the lesser chance of it making it over here.

    You mean our people in the military didn't know they were signing up for possible death when they gave the oath of enlistment???? SCANDAL!!!! IMPEACH OBAMA!!!! How DARE he expose ANY of our troops to the possibility of death, even if the troops being there might save tens of thousands of men, women, and children!!!!

    FYI, this retired Navy man will tell you that anybody who refuses to go where ordered - especially when it's as morally clear-cut as this - deserves at the very least what we used to call a Big Chicken Dinner...or what civilians may have heard called "bad conduct discharge".

    I thought you knew your military history better than that, NP. Do you not know all the times the soldiers, sailors, and Marines were called to provide assistance when there were disasters here and overseas? Each and every time there's a major disaster, the very real possibility of disease - like cholera and typhoid - is waiting for them. But we go, and most of us go gladly.

    Wasn't RE-2BLC used for discharging homosexuals?

    Like that highly decorated fighter pilot we spent millions training and kicked out because he likes dudes?

    Yes it is.

    And if you are referring to the Air Force fighter jock who was discharged for causing problems in his squadron before DADT you do know how it worked from WW ll until DADT was initiated in the military don't you ?

    Before DADT there was no box to check when you enlisted if you liked girls.

    Buggery was illegal in the military but gays have always served in the U.S. military

    The only time a soldier, Marine, sailor or airman received an administrative discharge for being a homosexual was when he was caught in the act of buggery or was causing a problem with in his unit like hitting up on other members of his unit. Basically causing **** and disrupting the morale and unit cohesion of the unit. It was always handled at company or squadron level up to the CO to fix the problem.

    That Air Force fighter jock you are referring to allowed his homosexual hormones to interfere with his duties and he was causing problems on the tarmac. The problem was fixed, he was discharged.

    But our former fighter jock got his panties all wadded up and continued to cause problems which led to DADT. Those gays who were in the military were better off with the old policies than DADT. Fast track to the Obama administration and during a lame duck session of Congress the Obama White House lied to Congress and DADT was repealed and a new social engineering policy was forced upon the military.

    BTW:
    HBO did a bias and one side pro LGBT documentary on that gay fighter jock who couldn't keep his mind on flying that fighter.
