I have a loved one now in the military - so often you see comments on FB and the like to the effect that the military only respect their CIC if he's a Republican. There is a FB page for their mothers, etc., and from time to time the other members post things that imply that of course Obama is hated by the military. And no one on the page would disagree.
One was a video of marines cheering when Bush came and then being quiet when Obama came. The situations were different but the insinuation is always that the military does not respect our President if he's not of their party (and also insinuating the military must be made up entirely of Republicans).
And Obama (and Michelle and Jill I know have made efforts) has done tons for them. And he is their CIC even if they are Republicans. I did think the military was supposed to respect the chain of command upward. They don't have to agree with him or be of their party, but they should respect him as their top officer.
Bush et al gave bin Laden everything he wanted. Watching this is maddening. You realize how many people died that simply did not have to. Without the USSR - it is as if people wanted a substitute, and chose Islam, and let bin Laden have it as he wanted. Everything from "everything is changed" to the invasion of Afghanistan - bin Laden wanted all that. We did his bidding (or Bushco did).
