And trying not to break something.
I don’t care about Obama and the gay marriage thing. I mean, did anyone not know how this was going to turn out?
No. It was this statement that sent my blood pressure through the roof and to the moon:
[W]hen I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.
On his behalf??? Seriously??
I have no words to express my anger at such blatant arrogance.
I thought I had reached the top of my contempt for him with:
There is no military solution to this war. No amount of U.S. soldiers — not 10,000 more, not 20,000 more, not the almost 30,000 more that we now know we are sending– can solve the grievances that lay at the heart of someone else’s civil war. Our troops cannot serve as their diplomats, and we can no longer referee their civil war. - Barack Obama, March 21, 2007
“Obviously what happened this weekend was absolutely tragic and heartbreaking, but when you look at what hundreds of thousands of our military personnel have, have achieved under enormous strain, you can’t help but be proud generally and I think it’s important for us to make sure we are not in Afghanistan longer than we need to be,” President Obama said to Karen Leigh from KCNC-TV, a local CBS affiliate in Denver.
All this while trying ever so to gut and dissever our Military.
I don’t know if I’m going to make it to November…
