Listen, I'm all for the belief that military personnel should never publicly speak out against their commander-in-chief. The people elected Barry and thanks to our Constitution he is the Boss of our armed forces. But the reaction to General Stanley McChrystal disrespecting The One in a Rolling Stone article shouldn't surprise anyone. After all consider that Barry had no executive experience to begin with when he first got elected President--amateur Democrat Presidents who never served time in the military themselves will have a hard time getting respect from our troops. Then there's the fact that Barry, so busy attempting to get his radical leftwing agenda (esp. Obamacare) passed, has barely met with our military leaders face-to-face (according to reports) during his first term, which may contribute to the notion (or fact) that Barry has never shown much respect for the hard work of our troops, which in turn can lead to embarrassing moments like this. Lastly, of course, is the matter of Barry's obsessive mission of catering to his leftist base and trying to do everything possible to get "Don't ask, don't tell" repealed, something our military commanders have clearly shown disdain for, all the while they're trying to control two wars. So yes, Stanley McChrystal was wrong for dissing Barry, much less granting an interview to an idiot, leftist rag like Rolling Stone at all, but should anyone be surprised that he's never been an Obama fan? Not at all.
